Welcome to the UHH. I know what you're going through. Just received the 150-600 Tamron and have been assured by my wife that it functions as a gift for our anniversary this month, Christmas and my birthday in January - and it is worth it! Again, as another Texan, Welcome!
Hi Floyd! Seems like there is a fairly good number of Texans popping up to say hello! Hope you're having a lot of fun with your Tamron! But I think that you're rather lucky that it only consumes the next three gifting windows.. You're wife is a gem!
