Pros: excellent portability - good sharpness and good AF - great value for money

Cons: lacks block at intermediate focal lengths especially at 400 mm - F 6.3 already from 130 mm

Opinion: I bought this new lens from a physical / online store in Rome (about € 780) to mount it on my Nikon D500 that next to the D850 with the excellent Sigma 500 F4 for stalking bird photo sessions. While the D850 and the 500 F4 are obviously mounted constantly on gimbals and tripod for more static photos of the highest quality, the sigma 100-400 grafted on the D500 I use it for shots often even in flight that would otherwise be difficult to perform using the small windows of the stake. My opinion on the younger brother Sigma, even as owner of the coupled D850 + 500 F4, is highly positive, both for handling and for sharpness and resolution. Also consider the fact that given the weight of just over a kilo, the lens in question is excellent for itinerant hunting. Previously I also used the Sigma 150-600 sport for a few years and I can say that, apart from the focal length, the 100-400 has nothing to envy to its older brother. I do not know if it is thanks to the D500, a large SLR, but the 100-400 sigma also performs very well for AF performance and stabilization with focal length from crop factor apsc of the D500 which stands at 150-600 mm FF equivalent. To date, in ambush, on wild with acceptable distance (ducks and waders up to 30/40 meters, waders and passerines up to 8/10 meters), my shots with D500 and sigma 100-400 have become predominant compared to the coupled nikon D850 + Sigma F4 (which remains the top of the range) especially for the handling and the non-need to use a tripod. Pleasant note is that the Sigma 100-400 also holds the Sigma 1.4x duplicator, obviously losing sharpness and AF responsiveness, but thus configuring itself in a 140-560 that exploiting the crop factor of the D500 becomes a 210-840 mm. in extreme and very rare cases you can also mount the sigma 2x multiplier, obtaining a 200-800 F.13 FF equivalent, obviously only in MF and with significant loss of sharpness ... only for documentary shots with lots of light... Obviously the only negative note, if you can say so, the minimum aperture F.6.3 already at 130 mm, which makes it a bit "dark", but for a lens that weighs just over a kilo and has a lens diameter of 67 mm you can not expect more. Also I would have liked if there had been, as on the 150 600 sport, at least the block at the focal length 400 mm, not only what is instead present at 100 mm, which is very useful not to "shorten" inadvertently during the shots. For lighter outputs then I bought a collar of third brand very useful for any mounting on stand. Sigma 100-400 Final Judgement : vote 9

Pros: Sharpness, reasonable weight, excellent lens for apsc, of course the price, stabilization ok

Cons: AF that I consider just enough, tropicalization, sharpening at 400mm

Opinion: After using 70-300 and other canvases I decided to take this 100-400 to use it with my d7500, good sharpness, although at 400mm I do not find it so satisfying. I find the weight more than good, especially after trying more demanding canvases such as the two 150-600 Tamron G1 and G2. Stabilization does its job, but it's nothing extraordinary. Coupled with the d7500 I found it a good lens, AF side I must say I am quite satisfied. Moving on to the Nikon z50 and adapting it things have not improved, indeed, the AF and even worsened despite the lens had also been updated with the dock. It probably needed a fine adjustment via dock, but I did first to sell it and switch to the Tamron mentioned above.

Pros: Sharpness, stabilizer, focal range

Cons: Maybe plastics are a bit delicate and are likely to scratch easily

Opinion: I took it used a few months ago to have a few mm more than the tamron 70-300 (which in light conditions with my d7200 is a good lens up to 200 mm). Already from the first tests at 400 mm, freehand the photo was very sharp from the center to the edges. I use it mainly for landscape so the machine is always on a tripod, but the stabilizer works very well and allows quite safe shots even with decidedly long times for 400 mm if you use it freehand. To date I have not found flaws or limits, except perhaps the delicacy of the coating plastics, so I always pay close attention. Overall a good lens

Pros: Sharpness, weight, stabilization

Cons: a little dark

Opinion: I bought this 100-400 because I wanted a long but at the same time light lens. It fully met my expectations, even better than I imagined. Crisp at all focal points and very good even on the edge of the frame. Light and well stabilized. The autofocus is fast and precise on both the nikon D500 and Z6II. It is a bit dark but if you want a light and compact optics it is the price to pay (today's machines hold the high iso very well so I do not miss, for now more brightness)

Pros: weight, sharpness, stabilizer

Cons: dark; diaphragms have problems on old bodies

Opinion: I bought it used at a very low price. I chose it for mountain expeditions, where weight really matters. Having a canvas of less than 1kg allows you to take otherwise impossible photos. Excellent sharpness, excellent stabilizer yield, which allows you to shoot smoothly even at 400mm. Very fast and precise autofocus. A little weak in the blurry, which are not soft enough. I also used it on an old body (D90). In theory, it's not compatible. It actually snaps without any particular problems, apart from the fact that the diaphragms always remain open to maximum openness. Consading that the lens is rather dark, the problem is not dramatic...
