positive:This is an excellent affordable lens for wildlife shooting. Price and weight were pluses. It works native on Sony A Mount cameras, and with the LAEA3 adapter, it worked great on my A7RIII, and now my A7RIV (as well as my A6500). On 24MP and 42MP cameras, it can't be beat.
negative:It's not weather sealed, but neither am I, so both of us stay out of the rain! It's resolution doesn't take full advantage of a 61MP body.
comment:Even handheld this lens was easy to shoot with. For the price, it's exceptional.

compared to:Sony 70-200 F2.8 ssm G1
price paid:1800 CAD
positive:Solid build, smooth zoom mechanism, Fast AF, Range
negative:A bit heavy, I got some hunting on a busy background at 600mm
comment:I'm not a big user of tripod, so I need to learn to bring one with this lens because it is 2kg in weight, I did not see flares even shooting quit close to direct sun. Rating of 4,5 in sharpness but not sure maybe I'm the one at fault. Limited testing but quite satisfied with it in general.

The weight for Handholding
comment:This lens is complimenting my Sony 70 - 400 G1. I purchased this in hopes of better AF consistency and speed and for the additional 200mm on the long end. Anyone looking to upgrade for these reasons will not be disappointed in this lens. The image quality is very much on par with my 70 - 400 right through and past 400mm. At 600mm the quality comes down a touch, but is still better than very good. No CA or flare to speak of. No distortion. In Canada you can register with tamron and your 6 year warranty becomes 10 years. Check out my video review here:
