Tamron's 150-600mm lens is an ultra-telephoto lens that sports a 4x zoom range and has fast, silent focusing.
The lens will fit Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts, and features eBAND lens coatings to increase contrast and reduce ghosting and flare.
Built from high quality plastics, this lens isn't overly heavy for one with such a large telephoto zoom. It will balance well on most DSLRs, and has a metal collar with tripod head and finger grip making it easy to carry and set up.

The 150-600mm features very good sharpness throughout the range, has an effective vibration compensation system and extremely low CA levels, making it ideal for the wildlife photographer who wants to photograph far away subjects without issue.
The lens also represents good value for money, at £949, which is reasonable for a telephoto zoom this long. We scored the lens 4.5 out of 5 stars in our review.
