I had this week for a week now, It is solid and easy to use, focus stops at times but other then that it is fast and the image quality is sharp and clear on the center and edges. some claimed it's sofor on the longer end of 600mm I did not experianced that with my copy. I have to thank the sales team at B&H who helped me make the right choice as I was debating between the Tamron 150-600 and Cigma's newer version of 150-600. I am very happy with my desision I took it to the nearby nature reserve almost every day and was able to get some amazing shots at the local lake of wildlife and birds. I was catching Osprey pulling fish out of the water!! sure it takes skills mastering focusing with the lens wide open to 600 mm but for me it worked well on my Nikon D-7200 Crop senor Body that has A faster processor and auto focus that helps. Regarding Using this lens in low light conditions: p[lease note that this lens will not perform as well or as sharp on higher ISO speeds at poor lighting like nighttime or cloudy days, as it will in a bright sunny days where you can set your shutter speed as high as 1600 for moving subjects and keep it under 400 ISO for crisp clear shots. Regarding the weight: I upgraded from much lighter 55-300 lens that weight less then half from the Tamron.. I had no problems carrying it on a strap (when tripod collar off)or taking my light tripod aling and carring my camera and lens with the collar handle (which is way bigger then the Cigma's, one of my concerns) holding it it's no problems, sure after two hours I can feel my body but at times I set it on a tripod as well. Overall a $ dollar lens gets you into the big game where no amatures or intusiastic photographers did, due to the prices of those lenses ($ Nikkor 600 mm at B&H...) You will love the reach on the Tamron a begginer to semi-pro wildlife lens, highly recommended

I should have just tried to return this even though I had kept it way past the return window before attempting to install it on my Tamron 150-600, but thinking that rules are rules, I went ahead and tried to make it work. What a mistake. First off, straight out of the bag, I tried matching up the number of pieces with the instruction sheet. After reading it through several times, and accounting for the various optional configurations (i.e. with or without the rotating collar), I still found myself with four extra pieces of neoprene than what was called for by the instructions. Worse yet, most of the pieces that I did have didn't match the poorly drawn instructions! So...I went to the web...to the LensCoat web site, looking for instructions or pictures which might help me figure out which pieces went where, and when I found none I then went to B&H looking for pictures or customer photos that might be of help...but found none. I then searched on Google for videos or other blogs that might explain all the extra pieces and or how the triangle shaped piece in my hand might map to the square piece on the instruction sheet...but found nothing. So, I just started assembling what I had and hoped the process of elimination would help shed some light on what I was working with. Working from the lens hood back per the instructions, the first thing that I noticed was that the individual panels themselves may be waterproof due to the nature of neoprene, but the panels do not fit snuggly enough together to form a waterproof (or in may cases, even water resistant) barrier...so that claim is hogwash. This product would do nothing to increase the weather worthiness of the lens, except maybe over the buttons where they are covered with a clear piece of plastic...but definitely not between the turning rings on the lens.The second thing I noticed is that the stitching almost immediately started coming unstitched on several of the pieces. It wasn't like I had stretched them beyond reason installing them...I had installed them exactly according to the instructions...and now without even having left the workbench they were coming unwound. To address that issue I took some neoprene glue from my scuba diving days and glued the edges of the neoprene back together and dabbed some on the thread to keep it from unwinding any further.When I got to the piece that was supposed to have the window for the zoom lock, there was no such thing in my inventory of parts. Nothing close. I used every bit of imagination to try and figure out how one of the remaining pieces could be the zoom lock piece, and nope...even squinting my eyes couldn't make any of the remaining pieces remotely fill the role. So since I knew that I was always going to be using the rotating collar on my lens, I took the piece that was sent to use in case the collar was not going to be used, and appropriated that for my zoom lock piece. It had two windows in it...one for the VC switch and another for the AF switch, so I cut a strip wide enough for my needs, placed one window over the zoom lock switch, and cut another piece of neoprene off and glued it over the other unused window to eliminate the glare.The focus ring went on fine, but again, not nearly tight enough tolerance to make it water resistant. The adhesive strips on the rotating collar made me laugh, but I guess they will do the trick...I'll just have to see how long they stay on sticking so high above the lens. Likewise the cover for the VC and AF switches. The cover that I ended up using to cover the cone that tapers down to the lens mount on the camera fits wonderfully...but since the picture in the instructions shows a straight band with a hole in it for lining up the dot on the lens, and this piece was cone shaped and had no hole, my guess is that this wonderfully fitting piece probably goes with some other lens in their line.When I was all done, I stood back and looked at my handiwork. One seem glued with scuba neoprene glue, another piece hand made from another random piece with a window blocked out with glue and a spare piece of neoprene. And the best fitting piece apparently not even supposed to be part of the kit. On top of that, almost every edge of each piece was cut crooked and looked unprofessional, so my hand cut pieces fit right in. And...I still have four pieces left over for future patches should they be needed!!! I truly feel that this is a $[$]product, IF all of the correct pieces (and ONLY the correct pieces) had been shipped, and they sent more than a hand drawn instruction sheet on how to identify and install each piece.

The only and best game in town when it comes to lens covers

By Doug G.

Comments about Lens Cover for Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Lens (Black):

I find lens covers useful because they protect lenses from scratches and scrapes, plus they substitute a soft, slightly compressible surface for the hard metal or plastic that covers lenses. They also purport to provide camouflage for lenses because they can have camo-type patterns. I actually don't think animals are fooled by the camouflage, so for me a plain black lens cover is just as appealing as a woodland type.'

Lenscoast covers are expensive, no doubt. If a person is handy and resourceful he or she can buy the materials and create covers on a diy basis. But I am not all that handy, so I am willing to pay the price for Lenscoat products for some of my lenses, i.e., the larger ones. The only competing products, made in the UK, are less expensive but the maker made the error of using slippery, smooth, two-sided fabric , instead of Lenscoat's practice of using material that is smooth on the outside but a bit grippy on the inside. The grippy side of Lenscoat's material prevents the cover from sliding around. It's a better design. The only issues with Lenscoat lens covers is that the cover pieces can obscure zoom millimeter scales, plus there is a need for a small cutout for a lens lock. To me, these matters are trivial when compared to the protection the covers provide.

Until another company comes along and provides real competition, Lenscoat will remain the only real game in town when it comes to lens covers. Their products are very good.

        Comments about Lens Cover for Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Lens (Black):

        Perfect fit for the Tamron 150-600mm lens. Literally "fits like a glove," and I feel much better having my investment protected!One downside (not really a negative, but more of an unfortunate result) is that it is very challenging to reverse-mount the lens hood for storage. Because the diameter of the lens hood where it mounts to the lens, and the diameter of the end of the lens are almost identical, the thickness of the Lens Coat gets in the way a bit. It's still possible to do it, but just make sure you don't force it, as you may end up rolling the end of the lens coat, which could, in the long run, stretch it out a bit.While not worth knocking off a star in the rating, the only true negative, in my opinion, is the instructions. For something that cost this much has a minimum of 7 pieces, they could've at least given pics of how each one goes on, rather than a simple diagram and seven written steps, which are vague, at best.The picture showing the pieces is the most helpful info. Just make sure you lay out all of the pieces and compare them to the picture to determine their corresponding numbers, because the pieces themselves aren't numbered.And for any newbies like me who are confused, when the written instructions for piece 2 say to "remove the rotating collar," that's the tripod mount. Loosen the screw, rotate it slightly and it comes off easily.Some reviewers commented on having extra pieces that they didn't know what to do with. It all depends on how you use it, as to how many extra pieces you have.If you keep the rotating collar (tripod mount) on your lens, then you will use piece 6a but not 6b.If you keep your lens fully zoomed, then you will need the piece with velcro, as that covers the extended barrel. But if you zoom in and out, you will not be able to use it.The piece with adhesive on the back is to cover the rotating collar (tripod mount), if you so choose.The only true "extra" piece I have is something that looks like it would go on the camera mount end, as it's tapered, similar to piece 7. But it's too big to use with the rotating collar in place and use piece 6a, and not needed if you take off the collar and use piece 6b.All told, having taken my time to figure out where everything went and being very careful to not over-stretch anything when putting it on, and this being my first experience with a Lens Coat, it took me about 20 minutes to get it on and situated properly. In my opinion, 20 minutes of my time and $[$]of my money is well worth protecting my lens!

        Decent but Costly Item

        Comments about Lens Cover for Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Lens (Realtree Max4):

        A decent item. Works just fine. But perhaps expecting a bit more for the price. Instructions are not very good. Seems to be an extra item I think for a teleconverter but no information on this. For the piece for the mounting, minstructions suggest you 'cut to size'. For the price, that should've been cut to exactly match the need. I'd be surprised if there's more than $ of materials tied up for this item. Was expecting a bit more in terms of instructions and precut items for the price. No competitive product which I'm sure drives up the price. Glad I have it and would purchase again give a lack of options but a bit disappointed.

                  I should have just tried to return this even though I had kept it way past the return window before attempting to install it on my Tamron 150-600, but thinking that rules are rules, I went ahead and tried to make it work. What a mistake. First off, straight out of the bag, I tried matching up the number of pieces with the instruction sheet. After reading it through several times, and accounting for the various optional configurations (i.e. with or without the rotating collar), I still found myself with four extra pieces of neoprene than what was called for by the instructions. Worse yet, most of the pieces that I did have didn't match the poorly drawn instructions! So...I went to the web...to the LensCoat web site, looking for instructions or pictures which might help me figure out which pieces went where, and when I found none I then went to B&H looking for pictures or customer photos that might be of help...but found none. I then searched on Google for videos or other blogs that might explain all the extra pieces and or how the triangle shaped piece in my hand might map to the square piece on the instruction sheet...but found nothing.

And...I still have four pieces left over for future patches should they be needed!!! I truly feel that this is a $[$]product, IF all of the correct pieces (and ONLY the correct pieces) had been shipped, and they sent more than a hand drawn instruction sheet on how to identify and install each piece.

                      Comments about Lens Cover for Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Lens (Realtree Max4):

                      From the pictures and reviews, I had high hopes for this product, but they quickly went down the drain when I opened the package and laid out the parts and compared them to the instruction sheet. First, the instruction sheet listed the parts in order as they would fit on the lens, working from the lens hood back, numbering them 1, 2...6b, and 7. When I looked at the neoprene pieces I had in front of me, none of them were numbered, and most only vaguely looked like the pieces drawn on the instruction sheet. On top of that, if you figured with 6 a & b I should have 8 pieces...I had 13! I later found out that there was one optional piece that velcroed on to the lens to cover the extension of the barrel when the lens is zoomed out to 600m, so that would take the expected count up to 9...but not 13! So I started matching up the pieces based on the ones that I knew, and looked at pictures of the lens on the B&H and Lens Coat websites to try and get some clue as to how to proceed, and dove in. The pieces that I identified fit well...the lens hood, the piece right in front of the extending lens barrel, the zoom ring. But then it told me to put the next piece on, lining up the clear cover with the zoom lock. Huh? There wasn't such a thing? And this is where everything fell apart. I had pieces that didn't even look like they belonged to this lens in any shape or form. I had pieces that looked like they matched the instructions, but where the completely wrong size when I held them up to the lens. I went and looked at the packaging for pieces that might have been left behind (not that I needed any more...I already had 4 extra!) but found none. I looked at the packaging for signs that it might have been opened and returned...but no multiple staple holes. So what do you do when you have extra pieces and don't feel like dealing with returns, deciding if this was just a one off mistake or indicative of their overall quality, and you just want to get on things? You get out your scissors and your wetsuit glue! In the end, I basically custom made the entire back half from the pieces that were incorrectly cut or sized and my extra pieces that who knows where they came from...and I still have material left over for patching in the future! (Trying to look at the bright side.) Oh! One last thing...when I was finishing up, I noticed that the stitching on one of the properly cut pieces...the good pieces...was already coming unstitched. So I glued the neoprene edges back together with my wetsuit glue and put a dab on the stitching to stop the unraveling. Who knew my years as a scuba diver would come in so handy as a photographer!

                          Quite impressed. Perfect fit, easy to put on, looks good, nice feel, and should protect the lens as prescribed. Nothing negative at all.

                                Designed for particular lens. Bonus is that it protects the lens from scratches when in the deep woods.

                                    Comments about Lens Cover for Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Lens (Digital Camo):

                                    I like that it provides some protection for my valuable lens although I think it is a bit thin especially considering its very high price. The window provided over the switches is a big annoyance. I removed that piece and now go without it. So, Pros for Protection and Camouflage. Cons for very high price but it is the only game in town!

                                    While the instructions aren't awesome, it does fit fine. The tapered end doesn't stay put however, so I didn't use it. Also makes it a little awkward putting the hood on backwards for storage, but it's worth it for the protection.
