I have a Canon 80D with the Tamron 150-600 G2 lens. I mainly shoot wildlife photos and birds in flying. The problem I am faced with is none of my images are sharp. Which VC mode should I use and which focus distance settings on the lens? Also, I shoot transmission with back button focus (45 point), Evaluative metering and AI Servo

you might take to calibrate your lens for the 80D, I did for the 70D with the previous generation Tamron 150-600. See www.picturecorrect.com/tips/how-to-recalibrate-your-camer… for an easy to follow guide.
I normally use Full for distance, VC on when handheld, and yep AI servo, Evaluative metering and back button focus and Av mode. 45 points seems a lot for me for birds, your photographic camera might focus on all kinds of things around a bird, get out, branches etc. I mostly use single betoken.

I beloved my Tamron and they even fixed it for free when it stopped working after having it for over 3 years!

A lack of sharpness could be down to several factors. Kickoff is shutter speed which should be higher than focal length so at 600mm should be more than i/600 of a second. Your f stop f6.3 or f8 at 600mm. The cameras picture style set to custom with sharpness, force and finesse and contrast set correctly to enhance fine details like feathers or fur. Finally, if these don’t give you improve results, employ the micro adjust to compensate for front or back focus issues. One time yous accept focus sorted then you can be sure which focusing method for shooting is best suited to you subject.
One terminal affair to consider is the limitations of these super zoom lenses, I have the G1 and have used the G2 and recently the Sigma 150-600 contemporary and they are all fairly soft 600mm with the Sigma beingness slightly sharper.

I had aforementioned trouble with my G2 . Had information technology professionally calibrated on my Nikon D810, information technology bright now. It turned out that information technology’due south manufacturing plant setting was perfect on 350 mil only either cease 150 and 600 were out. Lovely lense

I purchased my G2 nearly 14 months agone, solely equally a birding lens. I have eye problems, and so I wasn’t beingness all that fussy about information technology. Photos taken at a distance didn’t seem all that sharp. Focus scale was checked many times. No problem in that location. The lens seemed…soft, especially so on cropped photos. I thought it must exist me, even though I’ve been taking bird photos for one-half a century. I’ve been asked several times to be the bird club lensman, but haven’t felt my photos were precipitous enough for that role.
Last calendar week a friend with the aforementioned photographic camera, a Nikon D500, stopped by with the Nikon 500PF he rented. We took some photos and compared to the exact same target used with the Tamron 150-600 g2 on both our D500’s. Everything was significantly sharper with the 500PF. Okay, non fair to compare to a prime.

He then mentioned he had his Nikon 200-500 with him, and he didn’t think the photos from the prime were whatsoever amend than the photos from the 200-500. Interesting. So permit’southward try using that lens in a comparison with the Tamron, both set to zoom at 500mm. And guess what? The Nikon 200-500 was significantly sharper on both photographic camera bodies. So much and so I immediately realized the Tamron was a dud, and I was no longer happy with it. We checked focus. The Tamron was as abrupt as it was going to get.
Viewing the photos without cropping at that place was a noticeable departure in sharpness. When cropped the difference was immediately noticeable. Since the Tamron is focusing correctly in that location’due south no other determination to make other than the lens just isn’t as good as the Nikon. Which is a shame because at that place are many features of it I actually like, like the zoom barrel lock, the Arca Swiss foot, the larger foot.

Heed y’all, all the photographic camera settings were the same all the way through our testing. It was never a settings issue. The Tamron lens is soft. For the same price the Nikon lens is sharp. Is that extra zoom range really worth it, especially when birders stop upwards cropping nearly of their photos anyway?

All I tin say is my calibrated G2 is great. I did a exam on the Nikon 200-500 and it was sharper but on fast moving jets the Nikon didn’t go along upward where as the G2 did. Having total frame camera the extra 100m on the 150-600 is a real nugget. Perhaps if I had a smaller sensor I might feel differently.

I experienced the same trouble with the focus; subsequently spending one whole day testing i identified a clear back-focus issue (around twenty mm for 600 mm focal). Pity considering once i corrected my 6D to deal with this problem pictures where almost perfect at abrupt level.
I decided to enquire my money back where i purchased it and i will buy some other ane… but to a different provider.
Best
