    Tamron 150-600 g1 vs Nikon 200-500

    I have the original Tamron 150-600 and was wondering if there is enough difference between it and the Nikon 200-500mm to sell mine and get the Nikon. Opinions wanted both pro and con.

    a really good day or sometimes slip to just a good day. I refuse to have bad ones!!!

    Image quality is very comparable. The big advantages of the Nikkor is focus speed and image stabilization. The tamzooka can't hold a candle to Nikon.

    Iíve owned both, but still own the 200-500. For me, it was be focus speed. The Tamron spent most of its time on a tripod, where the Nikon has been hand held, so I canít say much about the image stabilization, but definitely focus speed.

    Now, I did buy a TC14 to go along with the 200-500 in case I missed the extra range, but I donít find myself using the TC with this lens, rather on my 300/f4 instead.

    My 200-500 has a 1.4 TC between it and my D7100. I rarely remove it.

    Is this the same Tamron lens causing problems for some members? @wev is this the lens where you've had more than one mechanical issue and have had to send it back? Although people say Tamron has great customer service, the multiple Tamron problems that have been mentioned here would make me lean towards the Nikon. Just something to keep in mind, grandpaw.
