Tamron's SP150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD is one of the longest zoom lenses available for 'full-frame' and APS-C format DSLR cameras, covering a 4x zoom range. As a Di lens, it can be used on both 'full frame' and cropped sensor bodies. Its focal length range is equivalent to 225 to 900mm with APS-C models from Nikon and Sony and 240 to 960mm on Canon cameras. This new lens was released first with a Canon mount, enabling us to test it on our Canon EOS 5D II body. Nikon and Sony mounts will follow.

Wildlife and sports photographers immediately recognize the attractiveness of the telephoto zoom focal length range of this lens. Lenses that include 150mm in their focal length range are plentiful (and very useful), but no big brand name zoom lenses as of this review date include 600mm. Combining the great zoom range, vibration control and USD AF in a compact package with a value price is a recipe for an amazing lens.
