If it is anything like the Tamron 150-600 you should be pretty happy with it.

You’ll find a monopod is a big help if you are out trekking around.

Now the proof is going to be seeing pictures taken with that lens.

Went out in the yard and got a couple shots of a squirrel in the trees guess i need a monopod or tripod not steady enough. Could be i was a little to close for it to focus properly and not steady. I was only about 20-25 feet away

Tomorrow i am heading out to the house in the desert to try some things out there

Speaking of things in trees, everything fell into place on this one. I shot this a month ago.
