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: Sharpness, price, AF speed, excellent even at 600mm, contrast, stabilizer, solidity, quality / price

Cons: Weight, unbalanced, closing screw of the hood that may come off, lack of front cap, elongation of the zoom

Opinion: I've had this lens for a while paired with the D500. I must say great combination between the two with noteworthy results without disfiguring with the long original fires. I changed the brand so I gave it away. I had the Tamron G2 and then him. The difference in acuity is immediately noticeable even if I admit that the G2 is not much lower ... The sharpness as already mentioned by many, is high, especially closing already at 7.1 and I speak at the maximum extension, but even at 6.3 it is not so bad. These zooms express their best at short and medium distances, it goes without saying that if we shoot at very distant subjects using a teleob. fixed results will be better. I also used it with a monopod and the stability increases thus gaining in terms of quality. The main flaw lies in the weight and the forward imbalance being a zoom that stretches. If you use a tripod you do not have big problems, but for a freehand photograph after some time you feel the fatigue in supporting this lens. The stabilizer I find excellent, I have almost always managed to get still shots 1/250sec freehand without problems, at the maximum focal length. I definitely recommend it because in APS-C you have a very long and very sharp focal length and considering the price it is really an excellent compromise.

Pros: Sharpness, Contrast, Good color rendering even at high iso.

Cons: Considerable weight, unbalanced forward

Opinion: I bought this used lens and at a good price. I had doubts because I was used to the quality and handling of the Canon 300 2.8 IS 1st version, but too short a focal length, I never decided to switch to a zoom. After a few months that I am using this Sigma 150-600 Sport, I must say that I am satisfied, as I found a specimen absolutely free from front/ back focus and on my 5D MK IV it works very well. The lens is made with excellent materials and the feeling is to have in your hands a sturdy and quality lens. Unfortunately I can not express a completely positive judgment about the weight that is felt a lot if you use it freehand, other than everything is strongly unbalanced forward and even the use with monopod or tripod, in my opinion requires the addition of a bracket longer than the original one supplied. The quality of the images is of a good level even at high Iso, colors and contrast are more than appreciable. A negative note in my opinion is this: I find the Lock key of the focal block almost useless for the way it was made; primarily because it can not be blocked on intermediate focal lengths eg: 450 - 550 mm. Etc. and secondly it tends to disengage easily when resting the lens on the side of the hood in an upright position or when doing stray hunting with the lens hooked to the monopod. However, if I have to express my opinion on this lens I think it is completely positive, and the value for money is one of the best. Promoted with flying colors.
