I?ve had this lens for a while now and I?m very, very happy with it. The autofocus works well, even in very cold weather. The 150-600 mm focal length gives excellent access to wildlife. Given the size and 2 kg weight, this is certainly a large lens, but I?ve carried it around on a sling strap for hours and was still able to take good photos. For long hikes, I?ve been carrying the Tamron separately in a Lowepro lens case inside a backpack.
The controls are smooth and easy to use. The VC (image stability) is effective for handheld images. It allows much lower shutter speeds than would otherwise be possible. It is still better to use a tripod in low light situations. The VC must be turned off when the lens is on a tripod or image quality will suffer.
The Tamron 150-600 mm can be used for landscapes and portraits, but the camera must be well back from the subject. I got some great portraits of my neighbour?s dog from 4 metres away.
This was my first long lens and I went through a bit of a learning curve. It took some practice and study before I started getting images that matched the potential of my camera and lens. This lens, like all big zoom lenses, requires a lot of light for the best results. This can be a challenge on an overcast day. There are good videos on YouTube on wildlife photography that helped me get going.

I have only had this a few days but I've used it for bird shots and a moon shot. I've used it on my D7100 and a friends D800. Worked flawlessly on both. Fast focus, clear images, great Bokeh. I upgraded from the Nikon 55-300 which i loved but will now sit on the shelf. It is a big lens and I needed a new bag to carry it but what do you expect from a 600mm lens? It feels well balanced on the D7100 when you use the tripod mount/handle. Took a long time to get them in stock but worth the wait.
