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: Sharpness at all apertures

Cons: Slightly slow AF

Opinion: I use it with satisfaction, almost always at maximum focal length and often at full aperture. I find it razor-sharp even at 600mm. on Canon full frame. Quite light, I always use it freehand. The AF sometimes struggles when the focus range is too long, but if you preset it at a given point it's very fast. It still holds up well with the 1.4 multiplier. I was on the fence with his similar tamron but in the end I'm glad I chose him.

Pros: Quality price (if taken used) construction

Cons: Morbid, af not precise

Opinion: Canon alternatives on the market too expensive make this a great lens, it allows you despite its flaws to bring home still good shots. The lens has an acceptable size and is light (compared to the sport twin) the construction is good. The image quality is not always good especially at the extremes of the focal lengths, it is a bit soft, hand in hand AF unfortunately in some situations is slow and not precise (nothing disastrous, however, does not facilitate things in some situations). It can be said that it is also a low light lens but I understand that the price and the type of construction does not allow you to develop this lens with a superior brightness. I repeat, however, in saying that despite these defects the lens makes you have fun and allows you to bring home good shots in excellent conditions, but above all it allows you to get to 600 mm which is not little and obvious. The best sharpness is achieved by closing towards f9

Pros: Weight. focal range, blurred

Cons: Too soft at 600mm

Opinion: Lens that I used mostly on the track for motorcycle photos and with which I found myself very well, I preferred the contemporary to the sport version because of the weight and the fact that I often carried it with me on a motorcycle put inside the backpack. As much as it was good for motorcycle photos, the opposite I found in birdlife, I came home with most of the photos to throw away. With little light at 600mm it was practically unusable
