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, weight, quality, stabilizer

Cons: non-push-pull zoom

Opinion: I use it on Canon M5 and 7d. on both it works perfectly, although for a matter of weights and performance of the continuous af it is much more comfortable on the SLR, despite the more outdated sensor. It's my first super tele, so I can't compare it with the competition, but it's a well-built lens, nice to hold in your hand, closed by a sharp stop, the af is very fast (especially if you use the limiter) and effective stabilization. defects? at this price no one (do you want a bright 600mm? you have the wrong price range ...), but to be honest on some occasions the blurry is really tremendous, and the zoom push pull would have been very convenient.

Pros: Image quality, weight, life-saving stabilizer

Cons: Af not always accurate

Opinion: I found it at a good guy and bought it. I had not much doubt being my first experience with a supertele and coming from 5 years of 70/300 I can only appreciate this lens. Excellent image quality, the rendering of images even at 600 is something that for me was just dreaming. I photograph military aircraft and bird life, subjects quite elusive. Unfortunately, af is a little helped and in many situations it goes into crisis (branches, mesh nets, etc.). The weight for the lens is really very low the quality of the materials looks good. The stabilizer allowed me to shoot in peace with a freehand at 1/320 so I would say outdated test. Great lens. Recommended.
