Pros: Good picture quality even at f6.3 in 600 mm (but even better at f8). Excelent construction and weather seal. Nice tripod ring (even better with AP-608 foot). Zoom ring is very smooth. Autofocus is consistent and quick enough. Customization as in other Sigma lenses with USB dock. Great value for the money

Cons: Weight and f6.3 slow aperture, but knew both before buying and decided to buy anyway

Opinion: Thru the years, I used several telefoto lenses from Canon and Sigma, zoom and fixed ones (Canon 300 f4 IS, 300 f.8 IS, 400 f5.6L, 70-200 f.28 IS, 100-400 II, Sigma 150-600 Contemporary and Sport). I learned from experience that 400 is not enough for ME anymore, so that rule out some options. And of course, for some type of photography, you cannot beat an f2.8 prime. But for the 90% of my telephoto nature pictures, there is no other lens I would choose. The 150-600 Sport is the right choice for me now. The other 2 possible better options are out of my price range (500 f4 or 200-400). I was happy with the contemporary which I used for 3 years, but the Sport has a little more autofocus consistency and image contrast and it is easier to use on a tripod or monopod. Also even if it is heavier, it is built a lot better and will withstand the usage in extreme conditions. Never used the Tamrons, so I cannot provide opinion. And I do not consider Nikon or Sony brands as I have several cameras and lenses for Canon and cannot switch so easily.

Pros: The large focal range without converters. Build quality

Cons: Weigh and cost. Overall performing is on average stage

Opinion: For Nikon bodies the 200-500 is twice better and cheaper than the Sigma.... On the long edge (500mm) the Nikon perform better for me in a terms of sharp and contrast. 600mm on the Sigma vs 700mm on Nikon with TC 1.4 are comparable and very close to each other but with the Nikon you have additional100mm... One more positive point is that the Nikon is far more lighter that the Sigma... On the end I don't not recommend this lens in a terms of weigh, fast focusing and cost...

Pros: Sharpness, build quality, custom settings / USB dock

Cons: Weight

Opinion: This lens is real value for money. You get great quality, sturdiness and very sharp photos (even at 600mm). With the USB dock you ar able to adjust the focus setting, but when using several cameras i prefer finetuning on the camera's.For birds in flight i think the lens is a bit slow. I use this lens combined with the Nikon D7200 These two combined creates great photo's

Pros: Excellent price quality

Cons: weight

Opinion: I wanted to replace my 100-400 Canon with the 150-600 Sigma also to have those 200 mm more that sometimes suits me, the store where I provide myself with one used and from there I immediately understood that this is a lens to be used only with the easel and at most with the monopied causes the very unbalanced weight forward ,letting lose weight and imbalance,I can say that I like the lens very much even if Canon in my opinion is a little faster in focus in my opinion, but at the moment I am finding myself well, excellent lens that I recommend to those who take naturalistic photos in huts

Pros: good value for money, construction and tropicalization. Defined images but nothing to do with top optics.

Cons: unbalanced in front

Opinion: I write as a former owner of Tamron 150-600 old non-tropicalized type and as a occasional user of top optics (on loan-in the company of other naturalists). So, I had to give up the Tamron because dust came in, usually i shoot lying with the lens resting on the ground or almost. I shouldn't have a problem with this Sigma because it's tropicalized. The lens is quite sharp (I repeat, a fixed Nikon 400 has quite another solution, making comparisons with top lenses makes no sense), opens the shadows well, the blurry is not to scream. In terms of solving it is superior to Tamron, to have incisiveness in the images it is necessary to close to F8 and have good light, it is clear that the medium resolving capacity does not allow very high ISO. On the autofocus side nothing to say, quick enough. Taken used at 900 € without a scratch and with two years warranty I can not complain and I can not make comparisons with stuff that costs 10 times as much. I highly recommend this lens to those who make birdlife, for other purposes it is an unusable boulder.
