Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lens but requires support to maximize performance "Review of the Sigma 150 ? 600MM F5-6.3 DG OS Sport (in Nikon mount) This is a review of the Sigma 150 ? 600MM Sport with a comparison to two other telephoto zooms the Tamron 150 ? 600MM F5-6.3 DI VC (Nikon mount) and the Nikon 80 ? 400MM F4.5 ? 5.6G ED VR on a Nikon D7100 and Nikon D750 body all of which I own. All tests performed using cameras with the latest firmware and all lenses calibrated to the respective bodies. This review is written after approximately four weeks of use of the Sigma lens in Canadian winter weather. First, as most reviews have stated, this is a big, well-built and HEAVY lens. Much heavier than either the Tamron equivalent or the Nikon. While the Sigma can be hand held, the weight and balance of the Sigma (especially at 600 MM) is such that it makes it more difficult to shoot this lens unsupported for any extended period of time. The vibration reduction works well but does not compensate for the weight of this lens and muscle fatigue (and therefore shake) after holding this lens for more than fifteen minutes or so. For any extended shooting a tripod and gimbal head will be required for BIF photography and a monopod as a minimum for other photo applications. In comparison the Tamron and Nikon can be shot hand held for long extended periods using their intrinsic vibration reduction. Sharpness testing was verified using a tripod and ball head using mirror up and remote shutter release. The sharpness of the lens is very very good wide open. Excellent at 150 and very good to excellent at 600MM on both the DX and FX formats. It gets softer into the corners on FX but is still very good. With the DX format it is much better in the corners. Stepped down to F8 the lens sharpness in the center is even better throughout the zoom range. No it is not as bright or as sharp as the rented Nikon 600 MM F4 (but close for acuity) and is the closest third party lens I have tested at 600MM to a prime lens so far (at one fifth the price to boot!) Vignetting is apparent for all focal lengths on the FX format DSLR. This is easily corrected in post processing and a good trade-off for the various elements in the lens design. CA can be noticed at the pixel level but well behaved and mostly correctable at post processing. Overall the CA is quite good for this lens. Flare is generally an issue for long telephotos but I did not see anything unusual compared to other equivalent lens. Proper technique must be used to minimize flare excitation including the use of the lens hood. I am fairly adept at carrying this weight but I found the lens hard to use for any length of time without a support. The VR and autofocus system works very well on both the D750 and D7100 but again the lens weight takes its toll. When mounted on a tripod and gimbal it was a joy to use as the acuity and reach met my demanding requirement (which is prime lens acuity equivalence.) One note about gimbal handling: The center of mass moves about 3 to 5 centimeters along the lens for small cameras (D750/D7100) when zooming from 150 to 600 MM. This means that the lens/DSLR/Plate combo is not centered when set for one focal length and then moving to another. The good news is that you can soft lock the Sigma to 600 MM (as an example) so the lens won?t creep when not parallel to the ground. To put things into perspective I have tested the Sigma against the Tamron and Nikon which I already own. For brevity I will compare and prioritize the lenses according to specific attributes. Sharpness In overlapping bands and used hand held with VR on, the three lenses are equivalent on both bodies. This is because hand held shots for telephoto lenses are typically defined by VR and photographers shot discipline not lens acuity. I am not the steadiest person when using long telephotos and as a result I say this is a draw. On a tripod things change quite a bit. When lens acuity becomes the dominant factor the Sigma wins hands down. At 600MM it is better than the Tamron and much better than the Nikon with a 1.4 extender. Not to mention the brightness reduction when using the Nikon lens with the extender. Both the D750 and D7100 can focus at F8 so all combinations focussed well in bright light. In the overlapping bands I would say that the Tamron and Nikon are equivalent with a slight edge to Tamron. Contrast Best contrast is from the Nikon. The lens coatings and brighter lens (although not by much) provides contrast that is better than the other two lenses. In contrast ranking, Nikon is first, Tamron second and Sigma third. VR All three lenses are again quite equivalent although the edge here goes to Nikon. I can get very sharp handheld shots with the Nikon lens. But I have noticed one issue that is particularly annoying with this Nikon 80 ? 400MM lens. It chatters quite a bit with stationary objects when VR is engaged in different situations. I believe this is an interaction of the VR (hand held) and the individual?s particular motion while focussing but for me this is a source of aggravation as it has resulted in a few too many missed shots. I do not have this issue with either the Tamron or Sigma. Focus All three lenses are again equivalent. The Nikon is the quickest and the Tamron and Sigma are similar and a bit slower but not by anything I would consider significant. Given the weight of glass being moved in the Sigma the quick focus is very good. It should also be noted that all three lenses can be made to focus faster using the focus limiting switch when appropriate. The Sigma has the additional advantage that you can also use the Sigma dock to fine tune the focus algorithm parameters and then program one of the lens custom switches to activate it. But I did not have the need to do this. All three lenses work for BIF and other fast focus/VR applications that I have used them in. Handling Winner is Nikon with the Tamron just a little behind. Both lenses produce excellent shots hand held when using proper handheld telephoto zoom techniques. The weight of the Sigma puts it far behind the other two. Another annoyance for Nikon users is that the rings operate in the opposite direction compared to Nikon for both the Tamron and Sigma. An additional handling consideration is that both the Nikon and Tamron suffer from lens creep. Sigma has a soft lock which negates this problem. This is very useful when pointing the lens in any direction other than parallel to the ground. The Nikon lens is the shortest and lightest. And the overall winner is: The Sigma lens. It has the best acuity under controlled conditions (using a tripod) and therefore produces the sharpest images of the three lenses. Its disadvantages are weight and the additional cost of a good tripod and gimbal or ball mount. So an additional $1200 to $1500 Canadian dollar must be added to the lens acquisition price to get the acuity. The Nikon is the best telephoto zoom for all day carrying on a DX format Nikon. Good handling, sharp and high contrast images and the lightest of the group. For travel this light (relatively) lens can be used on a good travel tripod (Nikon collar not withstanding) when needed. The Tamron is the best compromise lens. It is an excellent value, has very good acuity from 150 ? 400MM and an additional 200MM of good optical reach. The lens focusses well and has very good VR. The Tamron is a clear winner for the cost conscious looking for a very usable long telephoto lens. I?ll be keeping the Sigma (best acuity and reach) and the Nikon for wildlife when hiking on foot into the unknown. If I hadn?t bought the Nikon when it came out I would be keeping the Tamron instead. 200MM more reach, equivalent if not slightly better optics but a little darker and a little heavier. An easy trade for the additional reach especially on an FX body. Hope this helps others decide."

What is the difference between the Sports and contemporary models of this lens?
