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: FAST AF (if docked in speed priority ), very high sharpness (comparable to 500 f4 on some bodies, read after ), completely metal construction

Cons: Weight that does not allow freehand use (I am a bodybuilder of 96kg and I think I can definitely decree it )

Opinion: It's a lens that amazed me, especially when I tested the sharpness at F8 against a 500 f4 Nikon. First argument I treat, which is probably also the most requested: unless you use D500 and D850 you will NOT see differences in a 1:1 comparison. Such subtleties in fact emerge thanks to the important pixel density of the aforementioned machines, which rightly declare the fixed winner. The problem is that the difference is NOT scary, and on 24mpx machines with AA filter there are no differences. Of course, these considerations apply to F8, to TA the Nikon gains brightness etc. with the obvious reflections of the case. Another aspect that I compared is the speed of AF, and even here I found no substantial differences. It is true that the Sigma can sometimes reed the shot, but it is also true that objectively if set by dock in priority of focus with the distance limiter placed at our leisure, the usability is almost identical. Trying to overtake on long sloets, it's a lens that's definitely excellent. Unfortunately it has a very important weight that severely limits its use freehand, if not in my opinion prohibits. Sigma, however, has deliberately taken this direction, even inserting a metal screw-attachment (super-tele Nikon style). For the destination of use so I think it is the perfect lens for traveling photo hunting from shed, where the focal excursion represents a real added value compared to a fixed lens. For lovers of long distances and quality, however, I believe that a 500 f4 is inevitably a more sensible choice. For those who manage to get close enough not to crop, I doubt that the investment of a fixed lens is justified, considering above all the fact that the real gain of sharpness I do not think exceeds 10%, and even with comparisons 1:1 to F8, it is necessary to really have the trained eye to recognize what the zoom is and which the fixed.

Pros: AF very fast, sharpness, precision AF, focal hikes, build quality, price, weight and tropicalization

Cons: Sharpness, fixed tripod collar, balancing with light machine bodies

Opinion: I have had this lens for more than four months, and I have to say that I am very satisfied with the purchase. Supertele Zoom very versatile, from nature photography to Motosport, in short, all genres that require a certain distance from the subject. High quality construction, very solid and resistant, tested in all weather conditions, rain, snow and humidity, despite this has never given problems in terms of performance. The sharpness is really good at f/6.3 (600mm) But if you close it to 7.1 becomes a beautiful razor blade. The weight many consider it a problem, but to remember that the Bianconi house Canon weigh from 1 to 3kg more (just think of the 500 F4 first generation with about 5kg) so also on this nothing to say, if not for long photographic sessions , at least one monopod is a must. Only flaw (in my opinion) is the collar for the tripod not removable, which in some situations may result in obstruction. Obviously this lens is not sensible to compare it to the large L series of canon because the Sigma with €1800 we bring home a good compromise against the approximately €10,000 of 600 F4 is II canon. In short, this is a great lens for those who like me to do naturalistic without selling a kidney to buy the original "first". More than satisfied, rated 9.5 out of 10
