Nope - Canonstein. I actually started with the used 40D with the idea of getting the Tamron 150-600, which is on back-order since Feb 16 (ironically, for a firmware fix for older Canon bodies :-(

Someone has been blowing bubbles on your lenses.

I got to try the Tamron 150-600 at the Big Photo Show, I didn't see a huge advantage over your 150-500 or my 50-500.
But it was only for a few minutes that I held it, and it was indoors in low light too.

Well, it's 100mm longer, same speed. Hoping it will AF a bit better with air show action.

I have a Canon 40D but never use it; I really do not like the menu system. After getting used to Pentax's very intuitive menus, the 40D's is just strange ... anyway, I do know that it is one of the great classic Canons of the recent past, and sooner or later I will bring it out and use it. But I love my Pentax. I am looking for a K-5 body. Just looking at this point.
