Pros: Given the price: pro in everything especially in tropicalization and the minimum distance of the MAF (2.2 Mt. is a lot of stuff) then the weight of course

Cons: Compared to the brighter optics on certain sensors it loses speed on the MAF especially in low contrast and light scenes, Chromatic aberrations are lurking but in pp they can be corrected

Opinion: I don't want to go into so much detail because it suffices to say that I sold the 300 2.8 because it was too short for bird life with the intention of finding one used with a longer focal, when in the meantime I purchased this zoom while remaining appalled by the results especially on sharpness. I read that many find it blurry at the longest focal points but I honestly find it very clear even at 600 mm. Certainly the longer the focal point, the more you have to be careful about vibrations and imbalance, precisely of that physical elongation that it has, criminalizes it very much, especially by hand. I have three cameras: as far as calibration is concerned, I will say that on the D7200 it goes perfectly and even on the Z6 that has no levers and various mirrors there was no need for calibrations. On the D850 calibrated on the eyes of the birds at the zero km hut there was a need for a +7 on the fine adjustment of the menu. Of course he can't stand the comparison of fixed optics like the 600 F4 but if you are professional and turn the world so much by smearing the equipment between deserts and rocky mountains he is not suitable because its structure is delicate. For my use that I pass from one zero km shed to another on the river or the nearby forest enough and advances with the advantage of having a handful of focal points in a single lens and the advantage of focusing already at 2.2 meters (the 600 F4 A 6 Mt). In conclusion, after a year of use I am very satisfied with it and I do not know if I will buy the longer fixed focal point. I still lack freehand testing to test the speed of the AF, so I promise to add the results.

Pros: Price quality nothing to say, autofocus fast and precise, robust and also aesthetically makes its dirty figure

Cons: A little heavy not like the sigma but heavy, at 600 mm it loses the detail, but for the price it can stay there.

Opinion: Used with canon eos 90d and with crop a-psc I reached over 900 mm, but at maximum focal it loses a little , that is a little bit. Better not to go beyond the 400mm, the autofocus is a razor, it certainly holds up to the canon L series. in summary, it is designed for stakeout photos and not dynamic because the weight is felt and how. I conclude it is a lens for its very very valid range, it is not an L but it also costs the middle of the 100/400, but I would strongly recommend it.

Pros: Built very well,af fast,very good stabilizer,weight,sharpness

Cons: Sharpness from 500 to 600 mm not great but still good

Opinion: Great supertele from the unbeatable value for money. It weighs the right and is not difficult to use freehand for stray hunting. Excellent construction, tropicalized and well stabilized. Up to 500 mm returns very good files on aps-c. Besides you have to settle, but with the right light and an easel it's fine. Had the previous model on the Nikon D7200 but this is definitely superior both as a construction and as an image quality. Very satisfied,grade 9

Pros: Weight, size, incredible stabilization, ease of use, foot already prepared for tripod attachment

Cons: Sharpening on dense sensors (read below)

Opinion: I had this optics for more than 3 years and used it first on the nikon d700 and nikon d7100 and now, for a few months, on the Nikon d810. Fortunately, my specimen had no AF calibration problems. On the d700 it was impeccable and made me have a lot of fun, on the d7100 it had a performance drop approaching 600 millimeters but diaphragm a little bit you could have a good sharpness. On the d810 it actually showed good sharpness but you could see a lack of fine details that didn't drive me crazy. Precisely for this reason, also taking advantage of an opportunity found here on the market, I decided to sell it in favor of sigma 150 - 600 sports: if I had not found this used I would have kept it tight. Considering the weight, size and stabilizer of this lens, I consider it perfect (and probably the best) for wandering photo hunting especially with bodies with not too dense sensors!

Pros: quality, tropicalized, very fast AF, weight, excellent stabilization, fair price, 5 years warranty

Cons: microregulation is not very easy, but of course you have to consider the focal point! Colors not excellent, but manageable in PP.

Opinion: I was undecided with the Sigma S (and the 100/400 II L) but the difference in weight and price, made me choose the G2. Certainly the quality of the first 2 will be higher but I do not regret it indeed, I am fully satisfied with it, I use it on 70D and they churn out great photos as far as I am concerned. I can (pre-lockdown) do a few hours without excessive arm fatigue. Precise and fast autofocus gives me great satisfaction!
