I've used it for soccer and it works great. I plan to use it tomorrow for my daughters last soccer game.


What camera do you have ?
Hi,

I use the tamron on my K-3...

I am glad to hear that the 50-500 works for soccer.
Are they playing on a large field?

Thanks,

They are... She's 17 and plays on a standard size field. The lens is on the Market place and I should have pictures of it today. I just purchased it from Adorama a few months ago

Some of the Amazon places state "no warranty international model."

They attempted delivery today, of course no one was at home. I just called to see if they could redirect it to where I work. Nope, they can't. So, that means someone will have to be home tomorrow to sign for it. This is why I prefer UPS.

I purchased a Roku SE from Electronics Basket and while it was a $25 purchase I was pleased with their handling of the transaction.

Roku listed them as one of the authorized merchants during their Black Friday event.

If it is as good as they say a Sigma 150-500 may be on the marketplace soon.
See how that worked? Now you're Well under $1500 and safe from questioning!

It's at $1706.89 for an "international" (aka gray market) version from Electronics Basket at Amazon. So no US warranty card; I've got at least one lens with a (probably expired) international warranty card that might not get me service anywhere in the USA but I've never looked into it.

Don't forget a tripod or at least a monopod. That thing gets heavy real quick and unless you've got better arms than me, is hard to hold steady enough for the stellar results the lens is capable of.

Did I mention it's heavy?

Real heavy!

I think that was the first thing I noticed about it. It is quite heavy. Good thing I packed my tripod.

And to think I got mine when they were $250 off. I was planning a trip to Yellowstone and jumped at the first price reduction. Got the lens and then had to cancel the trip. I'm still loving it. Awesome piece of glass.
