Tamron will start shipping its SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD starting on January 17 in the US for a price of $ 1069, the company said Sunday.

That’s not too much higher than the company’s $ 950 AF 200-500mm f/5.0-6.3 Di LD SP lens, which has a more restricted zoom range but no image stabilization. However, greater zoom ranges often come with optical compromises such as worse sharpness, distortion, and chromatic aberration.
