Opinion:Canon 6D, and now on RP. Good yield at the detail level, light zoom great for wandering hunting, well balanced. a little dark, but the stabilizer makes up for it properly. personal opinion, solves the RP sensor much better, returning very detailed and "crunchy" images. The zoom can also be used with the paralight mounted in reverse, just hold the lampshade and pull it out, as if it were a pump lens
Pros:Yield, weights, dimensions, lock zoom for transport, price-quality ratio
Cons:Af a little slow, construction a little plasticose
Opinion:A lens with a truly surprising yield from the very beginning, very uniform at all focal and in the surface of the frame, both on APS and on full frame (even on 30mpx 5d4), all weighing and clutching the right. Very high value for the focal lengths it covers. Its flaws are an AF not too good (as suitable for many situations), especially on old machines (I used it on a 7D and was slow, but precise enough) and perhaps a construction a little ' plasticose, but very well taken care of, even if the fact of not Being able to zoom with the hood mounted on the reverse is a menata. I find the perfect lens for the trip and the landscape, I do not feel the lack of the much coveted tripod ring, in this type of lens (dark and with little AF performance) take it off it was just that a pro, other weight and less clutter.
Cons:Absence of a collar (but I have not warned so far the lack)
Opinion:Wanting to change the Sigma 150-500 I was undecided among the Sigma 150-600 with a prevailing option for the Sport model. Then I read the review of Ferorake who analyzed very carefully and competently the lens and I decided for the 100-400. Sharing in toto the previous comment I have to add an incredible sharpness already open. Also for the lightness and portability is advisable for wandering hunting. Considering so many merits and cost interesting I think it can be quietly recommended.
Opinion:As usual the reviews on Juza are misleading. We are talking about a lens capable of solving almost completely a Sony A7R2 TA (which in this case is 6.3, but acceptable to have maximum sharpness to a focal of 400mm ), and I read of people who consider the 150-600 sport better. Where is it better? I prefer serenely cropping the image a bit, than having a native 600mm with a mediocre sharpness (as indeed all 150-600 to 600mm ). Another thing I read about the 100-400 Canon considered "uncomparable", when the tests can calmly demonstrate how the Canon is massacred in terms of optical quality at every focal and every diaphragm. I'm not saying that, just look online for accurate tests performed by famous warheads. I paid this lens the ridiculous figure of 600 euros as new from RCE, although new costs a little more. For this figure we have the perfect lens to make naturalistic. It weighs practically nothing, it has a valuable construction, you can use human filters of 67mm, they say it is not tropicalized but it seems to be (it has rubber on the bayonet ), it is perfect left to TA and we have no need to think about regulating the diaphragm. How can you then consider the lack of the collar a problem? It weighs like an 85 art, but I don't think people bother to use it and wrote in the reviews "lack the collar". The heave of the heave of the 100-400 series 1 L Canon better than this... when in fact the sharpness is exactly THE META' ad f11, of this at TA. As usual then, take a good look at the mtf charts before jumping to hasty conclusions. But then let's think exactly what a lens like is for. It allows us to carry it along the trek, to handle it with serenity. This year I found a marmot while climbing, I had to lie on the ground with 150-600 g2 tamron because I could not brandish it at 600mm freehand (tiredness also affected a lot ), and I practically had to do the marine lying on the ground... To summarize if you're looking for a definitive lens for naturalistic before jumping to the colossal 500 f4, 600 f4 and 400 2.8, consider this. PS: It is critical to update the lens via dock at the time of purchase. In fact with firmware 1.00 will be really mediocre in terms of AF speed. Once updated it will be fast enough for 99% of uses.
Pros:Great value, easy handling, sharpness in daylight
Cons:Dark (in fact a 6.3 already at 130 mm), lack of collar
Opinion:Lens bought for a safari trip in Africa did not disappoint, obviously a Sigma 150-600 is best place too, (in order to remain on lenses from the same manufacturer), but for the cost that this is a lens that allows you to practice photography with long focal lengths at an affordable price-performance that dignity. Used on Nikon D800 AF it lived up to the needs. The major flaw is the little light that falls to just 100 mm focal stretches 6.3 initials. Better use it with good light filled to avoid having to raise too the ISO or having trouble focusing on moving subjects. On the other hand, it is lighter than a 70-200 f 2.8 and has the same size, some compromises you have to accept it. The direct competitor is the recent Tamron di the same focal length.
