    Tamron 150-600 G2 Issue

    Thanks all for the help, it’s overwhelming and appreciated, I have a spare day before I have to leave so I’ll be sure to nip over to the local wildlife trust and try it out, As far as the tap in console is concerned I’d be intrigued to see if this would fix any glitches there may be or maybe a...

    Tamron 150-600 G2 Issue

    There’s no filter on the lens at all, I haven’t tried the tap in console but I’ve been reading about them They look very complex but they’re £75 Will this help solve the issue ? I need to find a one that’s reasonably priced as the sigma dock is only £30 which is affordable unfortunately it’s not...

    Tamron 150-600 G2 Issue

    I Have been looking at the Sigma Alternative and I can get one for £779 sold by amazon, I think I should get at least £750 for the Tamron if I decide to go that route ? Cheers

    Tamron 150-600 G2 Issue

    Cheers again all for taking the time to reply I always use single point focus but was reading the manual yesterday and it states use group for erratic subjects So thought I’d have few test shots with group af but still seems the same, I have used my test chart at 15ft using live view and the...

    Tamron 150-600 G2 Issue

    Cheers, I’ll get the crops up later But I’ve tried again whilst i had a spare minute And it’s starting to bug me very much Even in good light it’s still soft and blurry I’m watching the indicator in the viewfinder and it seems like it’s constantly skipping focus from front to back then the...

    I have it set to af-c and I just keep pumping the back button focusing so that it keeps focus on the subject That was with group af too, Maybe I’m expecting too much

    Tamron 150-600 G2 Issue

    I haven’t tried manual focus, I will indeed give that a try, I’ll go now and give it a go, As for getting rid of it I really don’t want to do that as it took me a while to save for it, I don’t want to lose out if not needed, Thanks

    Tamron 150-600 G2 Issue

    Wow thanks for the speedy replies, I'll have another fiddle on the tripod to see if I can nail it, Yeah the D7500 has micro adjustment but im not really clued up on it if im honest, I have looked on youtube but videos are very vague, I have an adjustment apparatus that you point and focus on...

    Tamron 150-600 G2 Issue

    Hey, So I've had my Tamron 150-600 G2 for around 8 months now and I've never really been impressed with any of the shots I have taken from it, They all seem out of focus and blurry at 600mm, I shot a robin today at 600mm 1/1250 F8 and it looks ridiculous, is out of focus and not sharp, ive...

    Online printing recommendations

    I use nothing but photobox for my prints, Very reasonably priced if you wait for the weekly offers, They use Fuji lustre archive paper, 15x10 or A4 is my preference and they’re bang on, No complaints here or from the people whom I’ve given framed prints to.
