DxO Labs has ran the new Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD lens through its DxO Mark tests and indicates that it beats out other “budget” super-telephoto lenses, including Canon’s classic (and more expensive) 100-400mm L lens. Of course, it offers an additional 200mm on the telephoto end over the Canon lens as well.
The Tamron lens was also pitted head-to-head against the Sigma 150-500mm and edged it out as well. Check out the entire comparison and test results over at DxO Mark.
