Advantages.

This is an okay lens for people who are curious to find out if this focal length 150-600mm is somthing you been looking for.

The lens is very cheap compared to other lenses like this and well built, the VC on Tamron lenses are excellent.

Disadvantages

First of all I do not have this lens anymore I sold the lens 6 months ago, I had this lens for about 14 months and I used a lot the time that I had the lens with both my Nikon D810 and D7000.

I like using this long lenses, what I found out was the Tamron 150-600mm was not that good from 400-450mm to 600mm exactly very bad, if I wanted sharp picture with this lens on 600mm then my subject needed to be as close as possible but with in the focusing distance of the lens then maybe I could get sharp picture, so I was better off just using my Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 on my D7000 (=105-300mm) and always get sharp picture (of course not as long), so I sold the Tamron 150-600mm lens.

What i found out was I needed longer focal length and with more sharpness, that kind of lenses cost a lot of money and I haven’t got around to buy one yet. but as I said, I like to have this long lenses but the Tamron 150-600mm was in my opinion almost unusable from 400-600mm
