Tamron 100-400 nikon f mount

I generally shoot Nikon Lense but I find this 100-400mm lens to be a fine alternative to the Nikon. It compares very well to other lenses I have .

Great for Bird in Flight (CIF)

Initially used Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6 w/Nikon D500 & D7100. D500 focus lock/tracking and IQ for BIF were superb w/Nikkor but combo was HEAVY. Switched to Tamron 100-400mm -- much lighter, very good daylight performance. AF performance and thus keeper rate slightly diminished relative to Nikkor zoom, but I accepted the tradeoff. With D500, 37 of 153 AF points are rated for f/6.3, with D7100 only 1 of 51 AF points -- all AF points work at f/5.6.

Very happy with my purchase!

I am a photographer on a budget. I own a Nikon Z6 and wanted a longer zoom, but the Nikon equivalent is almost 3x more than this Tamron. This lens is lighter, a little smaller and is perfect for my needs! Saving up for a teleconverter next! My only complaint is the tripod collar is sold separately, which adds another $100 but still well worth it.

Great lightweight Zoom lens

This lens is much lighter than my 150-600 which was just too heavy for me. I find this very easy to carry around and to use. Very sharp photos.

This Really Surprised Me

The first time I tested this lens I didn't know what to expect. There was a G1 magnetic solar storm. I went up to photograph the northern lights on a cliff overlooking Lake Superior. It was -2 degrees with a -12 wind chill. The lens worked well in the cold, I was really happy with the results between the sharpness and how well it handled the temp. After sunrise, I was on Lake Superior photographing ice houses. A bald eagle landed to beg for fish from the anglers. I walked fast towards it hoping to get close enough to get the shot I wanted but it took off and flew right by me. I locked on focus and shot it as it flew by. It kept the focus the entire time (shooting on a 1DX Mark II). The eagle ended up flying by me the other way and it kept focus the entire time the second time around. I do freelance photojournalism so I shoot a little bit of everything. Having 400mm's I can handhold and throw in my camera bag is really nice to have. The biggest downside to this lens is it doesn't have as wide of an aperture as I'd like. The advantage of its size makes it well worth it. This lens is far from the best 400mm lens out there. But with its size, price, quality, and build it's worth every penny. I only used it once so far but from what I was able to capture with it I'm very happy.

I used the Tamron 100-400 lens on my Nikon D750 with great results. Shots were clear and sharp, even distant objects such as high flying jet aircraft, at 400mm. No complaints.
