Pros: Great range. Not to big/heavy considering range. Effective stabilization. Capable of very nice photographs. 600mm can be very sharp with care. Quick autofocus

Cons: Tripod foot a bit to small. f6.3 (but this is why it is not 5 times the price). Not weather sealed

Opinion: At this price you have a choice between the sigma 150-600mm C or the Tamron 150-600mm. I chose the sigma simply because the dock may give better chance of being compatable with newer camera bodies going fwd. Picture wise I have been able to get very nice photos. I don't think the lens has any real flaw inside it's parameters. Even 600mm shots can be very sharp with good contrast @ f7.1- f8. Of course we'd all like if it was f4 or f2.8, but as a realistic option for the price I think it ticks all the boxes one could reasonably expect. It is not an inexpensive lens, but considering it's range it is very good value for money, autofocus is swift, range is great and it feels well built. If you need weather sealing this is not the lens for you. At time of this review I have only used this lens with a crop sensor Nikon d7200

Pros: Extremely versatile zoom range. Seems to have excellent build quality. Can produce nice sharp images. Nice color rendition. Lots of bells and whistles for the price with zoom lock, focus limiter, 2 OS modes, both focus ring and push/pull zoom actions and customizable with the sigma dock. Light weight for this type of lens with this type of build quality. Excellent for bird and wildlife photographers who are on a budget but still want a lens that can produce great images.

Cons: Can produce some CA and vignetting but this can be managed in PP. Zoom action of both ring and push pull is a bit stiff though this may loosed up a bit with time. Takes to many turns on the zoom ring to go from zoomed in to zoomed out which can add up to shots missed. Focus is a bit slow but I guess within reason for the native apertures involved and the extent of the zoom range. Like my Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 S when carried on a Black Rapid strap the way I do if the various switches are facing your legs it's to easy to knock those switches to a different setting that the one's you have set. Consider that when you accidently knock the focus limiter from 10 meter to infinity to 2.8-10meters and see a bird perched at 25 meters. Go to take the shot and the lens won't focus and by the time you change the focus limiter the subject has flown away.

Opinion: I bought this lens for my girlfriend but took it out for it's first "test drive" mounted on my Nikon D750. Was totally surprised by the quality of images when mounted on this camera body and no micro adjustments were needed to produce nicely sharp images of birds 10 to 30 meters away at least at aperture F8 and this includes inflight shots of birds. My main lens is the Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 Sport, which even with 1.4 and 2X TC's attached focuses faster, zooms faster, has very little or no CA in most shots and renders even more detail. But the Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary is going to make one hell of a back up lens if needed. I have seen many images taken with the Sigma 150-600mm Sport and if your not worried about a couple of extra elements inside the lens and the full weather sealing, this contemporary version at about half the price and 1kg lighter looks like a winner. Really quite amazing value and quality for money from what I have seen so far.

Pros: price if taken used, stabilization, still sharp to take away some satisfaction

Cons: bracket for small easel.

Opinion: bought used, but plastered, did not disappoint me. For those who want to make birds without spending too much, taking nice photos, it's fine. excellent stabilizer (at 600 you also shoot freehand at 1/125 or so). Good contrast and colors. I use it in combination with multiplying 1.4 EX DG (the oldest one of the TC1401) and that's fine. I find myself an 840mm a f/9 (for the sick of photography the light and focal length are never enough); loses something in contrast but little stuff. The autofocus perhaps suffers a little level of ..."indecision" (e.g. cloudy skies having to photograph a ash heron on the river edge near rocks and boulders, better sewing in manual). Without multiplier the autofocus is precise. Like all zooms to the extreme focal it loses in sharpness, but nothing special, and shooting from f8 onwards recovers well. Mounted on the stand the stirrup is a little small and if you do not have a pesantuccio easel there is always the risk of moving. The mount on 5dsr with satisfactory results in terms of sharpness (making large crop of the image is difficult given the micromove always lurking; the easel and the open locked mirror are a must). Greetings.

Pros: Price, weight, size, optical performance, AF performance, flexibility thanks to firmware upgrades, to customizations thanks to the docking station (sold at Little Price) and to the various settings of IOS and AF, focal perfect for naturalistic, Pairing with TC1401 (1.4 x) that practically does not affect the quality of the shots (maximum equivalent focal on sensor with DX area equal to 1260mm!), tripod ring, shoulder strap for lens, lens case, hood.

Cons: Not received for now

Opinion: Tested for 8 consecutive hours for photos of Avifauna with Nikon D850. Made 779 photos. First time in my life that they are ALL perfectly in focus. Weight not excessive, all well balanced, AF to thrill for consistency and speed, absolute sharpness from F 7.1 to F9, matched to the TC Sigma 1, 4x and used on sensor area DX (1, 5x) is a telescope practically! If I think I paid him two money used I laugh. Already at the price of the new for what you get is given. It Remains the uncertainty of the duration in time, but with what it churn if you use it properly the cost from new is amortizes in a few months. Update confirming that the files obtained with this lens at 5000 ISO on Nikon D850 with two steps in PP become admirable for sharpness and yield. A professional lens camouflaged by amateur product.

Pros: Weight, price, AF, dock, general sharpness.

Cons: At the moment nothing.

Opinion: Bought as a first telephoto lens to replace the too "short" Tamron 70 300 I must say I am fully satisfied with the purchase. In my opinion one of the best telephoto zoom lenses on the market. Thanks to the low weight, (kg. 1,930), it is used quietly freehand and bring home high quality shots. The AF is lightning-fast and the sharpness at 600 mm (F/10) is pretty good. The general construction is excellent but not being weather sealed I preferred to cover it with neoprene camouflage protections to preserve it from bumps, dust and moisture. Recommended!
