Soooo, in my last post, where I describe my weekend trying out a rental Sigma 50-500mm on my Canon 1DX, I mentioned my next bit of fun would be with the brand spankin’ new Tamron 150-600mm lens. Unfortunately, Lensrentals doesn’t have them in stock yet, so my reservation had to be moved further back for a time when the lens *is* in stock.
Therefore, I thought I would publish a post with more photos taken using the Sigma and my 1DX. Apertures were set between f8 – f10 and the ISO ranged anywhere from 250 to 2000. This setup was either anchored to a Wimberely gimbal head and tripod, or it was steadied atop a pillow as I photographed from my car window (I now own a Grizzly bean bag as this taught me a lesson about big lenses and shooting from car windows)

This coming week, I will be receiving from Lensrentals the Canon 600mm L II lens. I want to see if it fits into my new Tamrac backpack that I ordered specifically to fit this lens during my 2-week stay in Alaska this August. Plus, I just couldn’t stand it and wanted to play with another big honkin’ lens on my 1DX and Wimberley.
