    Canon 7D and Tamron 150-600, which one to upgrade first?

    That link is to an old post on the 400 DO ? A lot of the 'issues' with that lens were solved with the 400 DO MkII. The gains in sharpness (mainly with TC's) weren't huge, and I'm sure those with the older Mark I have evolved techniques to work around glare issues, but the Mark II is superb and...

    Canon 7D and Tamron 150-600, which one to upgrade first?

    OK, sounds pretty settled on the lens then! Canon 100-400 f4.5-5.6L IS II it is then (with a 1.4xTC for when you need the extra reach). There should be some good specials available coming up to the holiday season - so be ready to pounce! The question then becomes when you will be able to...

    Canon 7D and Tamron 150-600, which one to upgrade first?

    JABW, I would say forget about the 400 DO MkI - from what I understand it had glare issues because of the forward placement of the DO element. The superb MkII 400 DO however is another matter entirely - the DO element is upgraded and positioned further back in the lens solving any glare issues...
