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...

Pros:Weight, price, sharpness
Cons:a little dark
Opinion:Given the rather low cost, it costs a third of the canon, you can't expect it to have a professional and battle-proof construction, it's a bit plastic but done well, the focus ring is a bit hard and not very fluid, pump zoom not really fluid, it's much better using the dial, the stabilizer does its duty, it gets almost to 1/10 freehand. obviously being an F 6.3 when the light goes down the game gets tough. The sharpness is great, at the level of the Canon II even a better thread. It holds the tc 1401 very well, becomes a 560mm and comes very close to the yield of a 150-600 to 600mm, while for all the other focals it is sharper than 150-600, both in the center, and especially at the edges. Almost non-existent aberrations. The autofocus is not very fast, but it is quiet and also scores almost in the dark (on the d500), with tc 1401 still works but slows down a bit.
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.
