    Hi, I need advice on choosing a AF telephoto lens for A7R - for wildlife...

    I have a Tamron 200-400 / 5.6 with manual adapter - I want better lens (I already ordered LA-EA4) .
    Adepts:
    Sony 70-400 (too expensive for f/5,6)
    Tamron 150-600? (maybe the best solution)
    Minolta 300 / 2.8 + TC
    Sigma 400 / 5.6 APO (cheap) I do not know if IQ is better than the Tamron 200-400 ...
    ...?
    Thank you for images, links, tests, etc ...

    I Used to use Canon 40D +Sigma 120-300/2,8; Nikon D300s +300/2,8 and last year OM-D E-M1+Pansonic 100-300 (I sold it for A7r - i need more resolution)...

    that's what i would get for my a7r, if i could afford it... not sure if it comes in native e-mount, and if it does, is there image stabilization with it.

    saw a review on it, with test results showing that it's better on full-frame than on a crop sensor.

    There are only A mount 150-600 without stabilization. I'm going to try sigma APO tele macro 400/5,6 and sigma APO 300/4 next week...

    I've tried Tamron 200-400 at f / 8 and 400 mm - not bad. Finally I bought sigma 100-300/4 and I've ordered a 1.4x teleconverter. I'll send comparison Sigma+1,4TC vs tamron 200-400. Tamron 150-600 stil not available...
