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: ..

Cons: ..

Opinion: I took this new lens from a few days giving tooth to a tokina 16.28 and a tamron 100-400 with a nisi filter and a filter haida nd1000 neutral without putting a euro.well right away I saw that it is very sharp not at the level of a fixed but since it comes to 600mm and not cost at 10,000 euros for the quality it has is fantastic.it weighs almost 2kg and having 800g more of the 100-400 tamron a bit feel. but if I think about the sport version that weighs 4kg I do not complain and cmq you take walks and freehand photos without problems. even with not very fast times because the stabilization works very well as the focus is very fast. I'm using it on d500 and I'm having a really good time, when there is little light or the subject is in the shade in the middle of bushes and so with little contrast it makes a little effort but I saw worse. struggles a second and then reappears. then this I do not know if it also depends on the body, walking you it is almost natural to keep it for the bracket which is really small but is not then a problemone. I bought a shoulder strap with very comfortable stirring hook ingesand and I solved the problem. The construction is good but it always gives you the impression of rowing it from one moment with each other in the next few days I will also put on a nice camouflage vest.

Pros: Ease of use, sharpness

Cons: a little plastic, unprofessional autofocus

Opinion: Surely it is a very interesting goal,weighs "little" and carries it with "ease". The main difference between C and S lies in weight and construction, and also especially in autofocus. The C version is perfectly usable freehand even for quite a long time,it seems to have a 100-400, it carries without problems in the backpack and does not take up too much space. The C is light and plastic, with a rough and uncomfortable focus ring to manoeuvre, the collar can be removed gaining another 150 grams scarce. Pump zooming is a bit hard to operate and not flowing especially at longer focal points. The S is a bomb-proof brick. It is the best and heavy version of all of its kind ( i.e. Nikon 200-500..tamron 150-600..) The autofocus of Contemporary when the light drops struggles a lot and also becomes noisy, also in broad daylight when I photograph mountains very far away with little contrast struggles to hook (also on d500). The sharpness is very good, up to 500/550 in my opinion is similar if not better than the Sport, then at 550 it "stops" the 600mm enlarges the subject more and affect a hair more on the blurred, but do not give more sharpness than the 550mm. With tc 1401 it maintains the autofocus but becomes slower. In any case, I do not recommend the use of multipliers on this type of lens, in addition to losing a lot of brightness they definitely spoil the yield at the edges and almost never offer advantages even in the center. Better croppare. The ied for intense and professional use, and in challenging conditions, is very easy to mark and scratch it, both on the body and on the front lens, and the autofocus is probably the weakest of its kind

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.
