I see some shape similarities between the moon shot and the Pūkeko shots
Nice series this past week.

Based on your review of the Tamron 150-500 I finally decided to get one as well, I thought long about the Sony 200-600 or the Sigma 150-600 but in the end size and weight swayed me to the smallest of the three options. Looking how big and heavy this one already is I'm glad I did, the other ones probably would leave the house seldomly while this one is still manageble and just fits in one of my standard bags. And as your three images show the optical quality leaves little to complain about.

Ngā mihi nui- thanks Pieter. Yeah, the pūkeko looked rather spherical. I wanted to get a shot of the head side and it obliged me with that pose.

Glad you found my review useful. The Tamron 150-500 has really surprised me with how good it is. Obviously it would be preferable if it could reach 600mm. But like you, I begrudge the extra size and weight that would entail.
