Tamron 150-600mm f/5.0-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

Spanning a versatile and long-reaching focal length range, the Sony A-mount SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di USD G2 from Tamron is a 4x zoom covering telephoto to super telephoto perspectives. Complementing the long reach is an optimized optical design that features three low dispersion (LD) glass elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range. eBAND and BBAR coatings have also been applied to reduce ghosting and flare when working in strong, backlit lighting conditions.

Beyond its optical attributes, the G2 version of this lens also incorporates a FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism to permit locking the zoom position at any focal length position to prevent accidental zoom extension. Conventional zoom lock is also featured to prevent barrel extension during transport. A ring-type Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) autofocus motor delivers notably quick and accurate focusing performance to suit working with fast-moving subjects, and full-time manual focus is also supported for fine-tuned control. Benefitting its use outdoors, the lens also features a moisture-resistant construction along with a fluorine-coated front element to guard against dirt, dust, moisture, and smudging from affecting image quality. The ergonomic and durable metal construction of the lens also incorporates textured focus and zoom rings, and a removable, rotating tripod collar with an Arca-type compatible foot is supplied to better enable shooting from tripods and monopods.

Spanning a versatile, long-reaching range, this tele to super-tele zoom is designed for full-frame Sony A-mount cameras, and can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 225-900mm equivalent focal length range.
Three low dispersion elements are incorporated to nearly eliminate both axial and transverse chromatic aberrations and color fringing for increased clarity and color fidelity throughout the zoom range.
Both eBAND and BBAR coatings have been applied to suppress ghosting and lens flare for improved contrast when working in backlit conditions.
A ring-type USD autofocus motor delivers quick and precise focusing performance to suit working with moving subjects. This motor also affords full-time manual focus control.
A FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism enables you to lock the zoom at any position in order to prevent unwanted zoom extension during use. A conventional zoom lock switch is also featured, which locks the zoom in place at the 150mm position to prevent zoom extension during transportation.
A sealed, moisture-resistant construction benefits this lens' use in inclement conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
Durable metal barrel uses a curved, ergonomic shape for easy handling, and both the zoom and focus rings are textured for improved grip.
A removable rotating tripod collar features an Arca-type compatible foot and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.
Compatible with optional TAP-in Console for fine-tuning select focusing adjustments and for updating lens firmware.

    Tamron 150-600mm f/5.0-6.3 reviews

    SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di USD G2 for Sony A is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a sharp telephoto zoom lens I took many pictures with this lens at f8 at 600mm,500mm and 400mm and compared them with my prime lenses.I was surprised the IQ are very similar. The IQ is a bit soft at full open at F6.3 but it is acceptable. The contrast and glaze reflection is not as good as all my prime lenses but the IQ can be improved with lightroom. I am glad I bought this lens and I am highly recommend it to anyone especially can't afford to pay $8,000-$10,000 for a heavy prime lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens for light field work I needed a lens to shot wildlife without dragging my heavier lenses into the field on a short days trip. The lens is perfect. Sharpness is excellent. Build of the lens is excellent. I would have preferred a metal lens hood but the one provided is most adequate . I have been able to photograph animals when they were in a fixed location and agin quickly when the animal has moved off into the distance. I purchase the lens coat cover for the lens and immediately found a problem when using the complete cover. The section of the lens cover that fits over the extender barrel suddenly made the barrel very difficult to adjust. When I removed that portion of the lens cover, the lens performed just as expected. I noticed that my color saturation from this lens was also exceptional. All in all a great working telephoto for a reasonable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EVEN BETTER THAN EXPECTED I shoot Sony and originally wanted to buy the Sigma 150-600mm lens but didn't want a converter. I needed the lens for wildlife and a converter wasn't going to cut it. I bought the original version of this lens and sent it back because the chromatic aberration was very noticeable. I held my breath when I tested this lens when I got it and was really pleased with how sharp it was with no chromatic aberration! The real test was a recent visit to a wildlife sanctuary where the birds are skittish and always at a distance. I hand held the lens some of the time (and it's HEAVY) but mostly used a tripod. I was shocked to find that even handheld, I got some sharp images. Using a tripod was better, of course. VERY happy I bought this lens as it'll give me more range and great results when shooting wildlife.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm having a lot of fun with this lens I'm a little new to using this type of lens, I've rented the G1 before but that was for shooting the Supermoon, sitting on a tripod and fine tuning is much easier then trying to use the Autofocus on this lens with an adapter. I went with the LAEA3 adapter for faster AF. It works relatively well, but if it loses AF it can take a little while for it to refocus. I wish these would be made with an E-Mount. You can adapt all kinds of lens to the Sony A7 E-Mount series, but there is nothing like using a native lens for functions such as AF. Currently using on my Sony A7rii with the LAEA3 adapter

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great A mount with Sony LA-EA3 and Sony A7RII, A6500 bodies This lens is very very sharp along with a good telephoto range. It is a Sony A mount that I match it with the Sony LA-EA3 adapter to use it on my A7RII and A6500. A great feature is that it focuses down to 7.22'. It doesn't have Image Stabilization like the Canon and Nikon mounts, but the cameras I am using has it built into the bodies. This combination focuses very good almost as good as a native Sony lens. The first images I got were mind blowing, very very sharp.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens!! This is one great lens!! I've been a Sony purest for many years and buying outside of Sony is new for me. For my first time off the ranch, I love this lens!! I would give it 5 stars, but I found that the range limiter and auto manual switch can be accidentally switched. When that happens, it either won't auto focus as expected and as a result you can miss shots. If you are just aware of this, it can be avoided. Other than that this lens is amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best available for A- mount With much faster focusing than my G1, sharper 600mm images, weather sealing, tripod arca foot, this one is a no brainer for my A99II

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getting used to it I've been taking photos of the grandkids playing soccer..it's a pretty fast running game and they're all over the field the photos are sharp and photos taken w/Sony A99 and A 77 II I use a mono pod and try to keep up down field has some very action and and when I look at the photos on my pc and zoom in on them some even have some funny looking and w/stop action sometimes I can catch the in the middle of a dance I have a older Sigma 150-500 mm pro but the Tarmron has it all over the Sigma and the 95 mm opening...GREAT !!
