    I was thinking of getting the Tamron 100-400 or the Sigma 100-400 for my nikon d5300 so i got the Sigma 150-600 C, i love the extra reach for small birds.
    Now i want the Tamron 70-200mm their first lens without VC, its cost 550€ and the other would be the sigma 70-200mm with OS but it costs 850€.
    I really would love to get a version with VS/OS/VR but its costs too much, what would you say should i get the Tamron 70-200SP without VC or buckle up and get the sigma wit OS, the 300€ difference i would but aside to upgrade my cam from D5300 to D500.

    The bigger shirt bothers me Jared. Love the color though.

    Saw your review of the sigma 100-400 and now this one.
    So the FroNation wants to know which one do we get? Sig or Tam…I’ve got both of them in my Adorama wish list waiting for an answer to move either one into the cart & hit the buy button.

    Fro can you please test the 100-400 GM and the 100-400 C Sigma with the MC-11?

    Thanks

    I like your videos and tutorials. Having said that, you just come off as a mega douche.

    Would have love to see how it does in portraits. I know some 200mm+ is usually unnecessary with shooting people but it just would have been nice to see some image samples of people.

    Is it me or are the photos of the brick wall at 100 mm not sharp at all, compared to 400 mm 6.3.

    I was about to get the Nikon 200-500 but I bought this lens instead and I don't regret it. Sharp as hell, lighter and more compact which makes it a lot more fun to carry around.

    I would love this lens. It looks like it'd be perfect for my summer. I have the Tamron 16-300 and I love it. I got it last year and used it through the summer at the renaissance faire. (I also got a D7200 around the same time).

    And since the zoo video, I've been dying to go to our local zoo with that lens, but the weather has been just total garbage (it snowed yesterday and is still snowing as I type this). AND-and, I love the store set. Looks great!

    I don't see this selling. It needs to be 500 less. The truth is the glass it's up against is the 70-300mm. Nothing in the f2.8 range. And when you start crunching the numbers f8 will be tack sharp on the cheap glass and good enough to crop the extra at f5.6.

    what is your view of this lens compared to the 18-400? With that extra ability to get wide angle, is the 18-400 a better bet for the money or is the quality better on the 100-400? I want something I can use at the sporting events for my kids/grandkids. What are your thoughts?

    Tanrom 100-400 vs Nikkor 70-200 FL + 2x teleconvertor, which would be better (not considering the price)?

    It's nice lens for out door sports. The Aperture rang makes it un usable for indoor anything though. to much noise even with higher ISO.

    Can anyone recommend a good 24-70 for Nikon? Anyone know good budget lenses for video too (with VR)?

    Been very pleased with me recent Tamron lenses : 70-200 G2, 24-70 G2, & now this 100-400mm. The 70-200 G2 is my work horse for both outside nighttime & indoor sports. Was looking for something with more reach for daytime rugby, softball, baseball, & occasional bird shots. Borrowed & used the Nikkor 200-500mm f5.6 and it's excellent however was wanting something lighter without need to use a monopod while on sidelines all day. That Nikkor is very good for what it can do & at its current price.

    Been very happy with this 100-400mm however found, like with some other lenses, it's best to TURN OFF the VC/VR when shooting at higher shutter speeds over 1/500. Not needed at these higher speeds plus images look slightly better – looks like VC/VR introduce slight "blur" in some shots even when focus is locked on subject. With it turned off never see any problems.

    Lens is light enough to be left hanging on end of camera without worry that it'll be too much strain on mount unlike the 70-200. Would have liked to see the tripod collar included since I like using it as a palm rest but no plans on buying collar because of price.

    For the price, lightness, & good quality images this lens is hard to beat.

    And btw with VC on, at 400mm, can handhold at 1/15 & get consistently sharp photos which is amazing. Can go lower but my hit rate drops.

    Can you do a video comparing this with the Tamron 18-400mm f 3.5-6.3 as the both zoom to 400 and are about the same price.
