Pros: Sharpness, weight, construction, price, good stabilizer

Cons: Wanting to find one at all costs I would say the balance

Opinion: The thing that struck me most is the sharpness, already at TA it is excellent. I also own a canon 300m F4 and I must say that the difference in sharpness is so small as to be negligible. Despite the very low weight for its category, using it with an A7R3 without vertical grip you still find yourself having a good part of the weight on the front arm. The responsibility lies with the reduced weight of the machine, in fact I will buy a vertical grip in the near future. The realization is of quality, excellent finishes and I have to say that holding it also has a nice feeling of stiffness and resistance. I would have liked to have notches blocking the bracket ring in the various vertical and horizontal positions. The value for money I think is another great workhorse for this optics and I think there is no better for these focal lengths at the moment. The af used with the A7R3 is very good but works wonders with the R4 and A9 first and second version. The lampshade I find excellent, a nice interlocking and overall excellent workmanship with a "big" plastic not too rigid and with a rubber ring in conjunction with the end of the lampshade that makes everything more resistant to a possible (small) bump and makes it practical to support the "head" lens. The stabilizer works well, with a bit of a firm hand you can shoot at 1/320 getting rather sharp photos. In any situation it is of great help, especially at 600m. It has no chromatic aberrations, even with subjects in the backlight do not come out obscenities of unnatural color. Another advantage I find is the lack of stretching that ensures the infiltration of much less poor and greatly helps the tropicalization. Very happy with the purchase.

Pros: Sharpness, lightness, construction

Cons: No advantage used with tc, small and uncomfortable bracket

Opinion: After trying all the Sigma zooms, which I consider the best, on Canon and Nikon bodies, I arrived at the sony 200-600. This telephoto lens is by far the best in its category as an optical yield. It is sharper than any 150-600, 100-400 and 60-600, at any focal point and distance and already at full opening. It is sharper in the middle and has a much nicer yield in the out-of-focus, you could say that the sony 200-600 places itself somewhere between a 150-600mm and a super fixed. Greatly zooming in on the image on the PC you will notice that the maximum detail at 600mm reaches f9, but already at f6.3 it is more engraved and contrasted than a 150-600mm and the excellent sigma 100-400.On the long distance at 600mm it captures more details than a 150-600mm with tc 1.4x and 2xx. Therefore, in my opinion it is absolutely not worth using this sony with tcs, because it is already very smooth, and even just the 1.4x would result in an almost nil advantage in the middle and would disfigure the blurred. The sony seems to suffer the multipliers even more than the various 150-600. The constraining seems good to me, I would not say bombproof, but still significantly higher than a 150-600mm (excluding sport). The lampshade is perfect, solid and light, very practical and stable. It is very light, usable for a long time freehand, but does not reach the perfect balance of sigma 60-600, being a little unbalanced forward and with a really small and uncomfortable bracket. The front lens seems to me rather reluctant to dust and dirt, all the better. But not everything satisfied me, using it with a6600. The stabilizer is rather weak, coupled with a6600 does not get to 4 stop (and fortunately that the 6600 alone is declared 5.5 stop... !?!) and even in live view I can't stop the image perfectly to focus with precision. Another point against the use with a6600 is the sensitivity of the autofocus on uncon contrasted subjects... clouds, mountains or distant buildings, struggles a lot to hook them, and often does not hook them... It also struggles with the moon if it is not prefectly illuminated in the dark sky. At these times the Nikon d500 from which I come is light years higher... However for normal use, for sports photos and photo hunting even with suboptimal light there are no problems, and you can benefit from sony's fantastic autofocus system. In the package there is a very practical soft bag, (but that protects well from small bumps) in which to store the lens already hooked to the machine, protecting both. It costs a little more, quite more, than the other telephotos, but it is worth them all, and also its purchase requires a change of system for those who own Nikon, canon etc. But once you do, it's hard to go back.

Pros: Weight price etc...

Cons: Lampshade that is "attacked" with spit

Opinion: Used for the first time coming out in the shed for the roosters forks, paired with Sony a9II I found myself very good focus very fast even in scarcity of light, and by scarcity I mean that I struggled to see the subject with the naked eye. In that condition impossible to take photos except with very high iso and poor image quality, however I chose to switch to video mode and was surprised by how it hooks the subject and nn drops it more even if you find obstacles in front. Then went to the mountains to photograph ibex and surprise them walking with full lens of properly mounted lampshade the lampshade dropped and rolling took the course of the river fortunately with little water but stopped only after hundreds of meters. I recovered it and only a few scratches and paint skipped, solid construction at least. He reassembled and soon re-emerged.

Pros: price, internal zoom.

Cons: nothing relevant.

Opinion: Great value for this Sony lens that I bought about 4 months ago, very good also the internal zoom that does not unbalance its weight during use. The weight is also 600 mm. In conclusion quite satisfied with the purchase even if coming from a fixed optics (nikon 500mm f5.6) a minimum of trauma there was but obviously this I had already put in mind... rating 9

Pros: Price, image quality

Cons: 95mm filters, "focus distance" number limited to 825m

Opinion: The image quality for photos in the distant mountains is limited only by atmospheric turbulence (I use preferably the F/6.3 diaphragm, even with other lenses, my preferred diaphragm is between F/4 and F/6.3, to limit the diffraction ), so with the summer heat it is difficult to use over 300mm. unless they soar a lot in the early morning. In the summer I will use the Sony FE 70-300, which is also lighter. In winter this 200-600mm goes much better with the cooler atmosphere, but you have to avoid taking photos in the direction of heated buildings (Baites or groups of houses, even if they are a bit far away, "move" the atmosphere and spoil the photos ). I would have preferred to have the drop filters in the back as on the supertele, but I found a good 95mm polarizer. (paid 190 euros ) which I use for haze reduction when sunlight arrives with the right inclination. This is the best telephoto in my possession. Small defect : number "focus distance" limited to 825m, I did the calculations, the missing numbers that should appear on the electronic viewfinder of the Sony series A7R2 and later are : 1031 – 1375 – 2064 – 4135 - infinity. I'm waiting for a new firmware with the fix, the missing numbers. That's why I opened a forum with the title "Manual focus with Sony A7 series cameras".
