This ia major deal of the day at eBay: The very good and very big Tamron SP 150-600mm A-mount lens sells with a big $220 off at BuyDig eBay (Click here). Don’t forget to select Sony mount on the drop down menu!
The lens got tested on the A7II by Luminous Landscape:
The on-sensor phase detection AF of the A7 MKII and the system’s focus tracking capability allowed for capturing these completely unpredictable penguins as they jumped from the water. Their position can’t really be anticipated and their time above water is faster that ones ability to anticipate.Virtually every frame out of hundreds shot showed excellent lock-on and tracking. I frankly don’t think that I have ever used a long zoom lens / camera combo that could have done better.
SAR reader Gilles Frydman sent us that nice picture of the new Sony A7rII with Meike grip and the Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 SSM superzoom. he also said the “Meike battery pack MK-A7II Pro which seems to work great, at about 1/3 of the Sony price“. You can see image samples shot with that combo on his Facebook page. You can buy the Meike grip on Amazon US (Click here) or via many eBay sellers (Click here).
So get that lens now at BuyDig eBay (Click here).
