    Cons: Heavy(ish) Only 400mm at the long end..

    Pros: Surprisingly sharp and contrasty Very quick AF compared to Sigma 100-400 C which I had. The AF is also quite accurate (more keepers than with the Sigma for this reason as well)

    Summary: I was considering a Pana 100-400 and Oly 300 PRO for my m4/3 equipment, when I realized that the m4/3 advantage is lost when those pieces weigh more than this one for the Nikon FX system. I can shoot the D800 in DX mode, giving 24mp images @600mm equivalent AOV. And that is enough. That said, I owned a Sigma 100-400 C before this, and I have shot theree copies of Panasonic 100-300 lenses. I was never satisfied with the IQ of Pana-100-300 beyond 200 mm, and the AF speed @accuracy was hit or miss with E-M5 I & II and E-M1II which I still have. The Sigma 100-400 is just slow and inaccurate to AF on any moving targets. Funny thing, it was more accurate on D7100 than D800. This Tamron 100-400 just nails when it hits, and it does hit more often on the D800 than any other device in the same price range, so I am really happy with it.
