Supertelephoto lenses can be stratospheric in cost at the top levels, and unless you work in a genre that absolutely demands the best in image quality and performance, you are likely to look at alternative options, like 100-400mm and 150-600mm zoom lenses. This great video review takes a look at just such a lens, the Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2.
Coming to you from Brent Hall, this excellent video review takes a look at the Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 lens. The 150-600mm f/5-6.3 is quite affordable and offers a highly useful zoom range. I owned the first version of this lens for a few years, and while its image quality certainly did not approach that of a supertelephoto prime lens, it was versatile, offered good image quality, and was far, far cheaper. The G2 only improves on the original.
One thing to remember is that while f/6.3 seems pretty poor for a maximum aperture (and it is), it is still only a third of a stop slower than the more standard f/5.6 for supertelephoto lenses of this price level; that is only the difference between ISO 640 and 800, for example. Check out the video above for Hall’s full thoughts.
