Which is better Nikon 200 500 or Tamron 150 600?

Which is better Nikon 200 500 or Tamron 150 600?

The general consensus of these two lenses is that the Nikon may be slightly sharper and the Tamron has slightly faster autofocus. Most photographers would seem to gravitate towards the sharper lens, however, my experience is that these two lenses seem to be very close, with differences changing from shot to shot.

How sharp is the Nikon 200 500mm?

When it comes to lens sharpness, the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E VR performs admirably. Similar to what we see on other super telephoto zoom lenses, the lens starts out pretty strong at 200mm and its performance degrades towards the long end of the zoom range, which means that at 500mm, the lens suffers the most optically.

Does Tamron 150 600 have image stabilization?

Inside the lens is a brand new image stabilization system that offers three separate modes for various shooting situations. Tamron claims the new system can offer up to four and a half stops of compensation, an impressive feat that will be especially useful at the longer focal lengths.

Is Tamron SP 150-600mm weather sealed?

While the Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 VC did great optically, it suffered autofocus freeze-up issues with Nikon bodies and the long barrel extension coupled with a lack of weather-sealing made it a real dust pump.

What is the sweet spot for Nikon 200 500mm lens?

The 200-500 delivered superb sharpness. The sharpest images were obtained from f/5.6 to 11 with the sweet spot at f/8. This is very important because the dark environments in the wild can sometimes force you to use the lens wide-open. In this case, this Nikkor will not disappoint you even a bit.

How far can a 600mm lens shoot?

Are you asking the minimum focusing distance of that 600mm lens? If so the answer is about 15ft. If you mean how far away can it shoot distant objects then that depends on how big they are and how big you want them to be in the final image. It also depends on whether you are using a Full Frame or APS-C camera.
