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

    Very true. When I bought my 150-600 Tamron, I really had no idea that I would use it so much for portraits. It has become one of my must useful people lenses in my bag!

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

    I agree. My 150-600 Tammy is an obvious upgrade from my old 200-500 Tammy, and I have some excellent images from that lens. I'm not unhappy with it but I know eventually I'll want to upgrade. Looks like I'm leaning toward the 7D II body next, but that nagging question in my mind about...

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

    Thanks Roy. That's a great image! I have no doubt I'll own a 100-400 ii someday. That's just far too good and useful of a lens for someone who shoots the things I shoot, from people to nature to landscapes to birds. I like my 150-600 really well but I can see the difference in the images...

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

    Yes, the idea of a 7D Mk III on the horizon does give me reason to pause on the camera body. If for no other reason than there will be a lot of Mk II's on the used market and that will bring the prices of those down. I don't put any more $ into my photography hobby than I absolutely have to...

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

    Thanks for the great advice! This is already how I shoot my G1 Tamron, at f8 and usually a tad under full reach. I can see the difference in the images vs. f6.3 and 600. It's not huge, but it's there. The 100-400 w/ 1.4X doesn't worry me at all, for that reason, and I shoot enough portraits...

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

    I've enjoyed my Canon 7D and Gen1 Tamron 150-600 since the day that lens first arrived at my local camera shop. Compared to my previous Tamron zoom, the 200-500, it was a huge improvement. Now I'm in a position to invest once again in my photography hobby (mostly birds and nature) and was...
