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: AF speed, sharpness, tropicalization, usb dock for adjustments and calibrate the lens

Cons: weight, but you are aware of that fact when you buy this lens

Opinion: My opinion will be very short, having tried it on the field only today, I reserve to update the review when I have tested it better. What amazed me right away was the speed of MAF and image quality. I also had the 150-600 C that I then sold, from what I remember, the MAF of the S is better than the C, although at the time I had bought it that had just come out and therefore had not yet released any subsequent firmware, so I do not know if the sigma C with the new firmware is improved, and improved even in comparison to the S with the new firmware. However, as many have already said, the problem is not the weight itself, although of course almost 3.5 kg are felt, rather the forward imbalance of the lens makes it tiring to use it freehand, but it is not impossible, having succeeded today, when I went to try it on the field (I was also lucky to find a greater red beat juv. , photos in the gallery if you want to see them). It seems clear to me that freehand is not a lens that can be used for a long time, after a few minutes you have to rest, that's why I recommend hooking the strap to the lens, so as to carry it on the shoulder, or to buy a cottoncarrier harness, or similar, so as to relieve the weight if you get wandering away , as I mainly do.

Pros: The excellent image quality, especially in the center of the frame, the arrangement of the buttons, the customization possibilities, the excellent speed of the autofocus, the build quality in general, with particular praise about the tropicalization.

Cons: Not so much the weight, which is not so much deadly, and of which in any case it is necessary to make a reason, but the distribution very shifted forward of the same.

Opinion: An excellent lens, capable of returning images of great quality, precision, and graphic fidelity; close to the levels of those obtained with a primary lens (which, of course, is much brighter!), especially in the center of the negative. When extended to 600mm, the loss of acuteness, at an opening of f/6.3, is almost negligible compared to that of a twin photo taken at f/8... Although, the diaphanous to f/8, will certainly earn a little something, something that, perhaps, a little contrast mask will never be able to outline from scratch (some micro-pit, some textural detail, of the very fine fluff...). In any case, you need to make a choice, during use at the maximum focal extension. A little more bokeh, or a nothing more detail? In short: Sigma Sport is a lens that is really good, that constitutes my telezoom of choice, and whose weight, however unbalanced, personally, I do not consider to be excessive even to carry out wandering photographic hunting activities. As well as being able to rival, in terms of sharpness, also with the Sigma 500mm f/4. The Tamron, on the other hand, its eternal rival and punctual creator of so many of our dilemmas is, in turn, an excellent goal, certainly better suited to meet the needs of all, far lighter and more manageable, but that, however, when extended to 600mm and kept at f/6.3, turns out to be really soft... Even at a more global analysis, the Sigma is able to create considerably better images than those of the Tamron, my old, and for years inexperienced, slow ordinance.
