    I have the canon version of the sigma 150-600 C and sigma 18-300 C. Both lenses tend to "pulse" when in servo AF, so I tend to shoot in one shot AF for semi-stationary subjects.

    Do you know if sigma makes a teleconverter for the Sony mount to pair with their sigma lens?

    I just got the clap. I mean I just got this lens. Friggin heavy w/o tripod. Also shaky at full extension even with OS on. I am still very happy considering the alternatives.

    Hi Chris .. superb & indepth review..i loved your honest opinion..I have been hearing some users facing some focusing issues with Sigma…since I am planning to buy one of these Zoom lens for mainly Landscape photography with some Bird & Wildlife photography which would be your final recommendation…currently there is a discount scheme on Sigma 150-600 so its infact slightly cheaper than Tamron 150-500 but that doesn't matter since i consider lens as long-term investment. I use a Sony A7RIII currently with Sony 24-105 G & Sigma14-24mm… looking at the build quality & performance of Sigma 14-24mm i was actually tilting towards Sigma but I am little confused now frankly between Sigma 150-600 DG DN OS SPORT & Tamron 150-500 Di III VXD…Thanks in advance!!

    Video idea:
    When I was growing up as a photographer it was conventional wisdom that lens hoods were required. And truth be told, lens flare is still a major issue on a lot of older glass.

    But with modern lens coatings it seems that the average photographer has to work fairly hard to get lens flair anymore.
    Could be a great video to test out if we're all wasting place and grams in our kits

    lumix's focus is very slow. And with this camera, you will be lost the main moments like a bird start fly from the lake. I think to use this lens with Sony a7 iv and it will be perfect work.

    Sony 200-600 is still better but I hope Sigma will come to RF mount one day since Canon doesn't seem willing to cannibalize their premium 600mm prime.

    Silly question, can it be used with a free hand (without putting it on the tripod collar)? Or will it ruin the handle with a very tiring imbalance towards the front? (for a sony A7IV)

    SIGMA LENSES are junk because they have a terrible customer service base. I purchased the 28-135mm f3.5/5.6 image stabilized lens in a canon ef mount. And within four years the aperture diaphragm failed to function. I contacted SIGMA their customer service rep said send it insured to them and that they could repair it. After sending the lens to them and three weeks with no callback. I had to call them only to hear that the lens is now discontinued so spare parts are no longer available. But I could order a replacement 28- 70mm. I told them no thanks. I will buy a canon version. They then asked if I wanted my lens back? What a stupid question I said "yes send it back…idiot".
    And decades later My Canon version still works.

    Did you by any chance gain any insight into how this lens performs on an FTZ adapter for a Z6ii? Know of any articles that reviewed this combo?

    Gran video, pero alguna razón creo que lo mejor es comparar los lentes en el mismo cuerpo. Creo que el autofoco iría mejor en una cámara sony que en otra mirrorless. De todos modos gracias por el análisis.

    Speed of the AF is one thing, but how are the reliability and accuracy of the AF?

    I have the Sigma 100-400mm for EF mount and AF that hunts a lot, misses the target completely, or frequently back focuses are my biggest issues.
    (Using a Canon M5 mirrorless so micro-AF adjustments shouldn't be required?)

    If you really wanted to test AF speed why didn’t you test it on a sports camera like the A9? Panasonics AF is way behind Sony.

    If you wish to speed up focus of this lens you need to get the Sigma Dock. I have 2 Sigma lenses and the default AF speed is Standard AF. I think most of us that shoot wildlife change this with the dock to Fast AF which prioritizes autofocus speed to reach the focus point as quickly as possible. You can also adjust the things like Focus Limiter and Optical Stabilization settings.

    Hypothetically, say you’re the 1,000th customer thru the door at your local camera shop. Your prize is a free Sony 200-600 or the Sigma 150-600 Sport. Which do you choose & why?

    My first camera was an Olympus OM-1, a stills camera. Not long after, I got into filmmaking and eventually ended up in the mirrorless camera world. But, for the life of me, I don't get this obsession with "corner sharpness". I'm 61 and I've looked at 10's of 1,000's of photographs, in books, showings, museums, etc. Mostly in person. Not once did I look or care about how sharp the photo was in the corners. Rarely if ever was the subject matter that far from the center. Nor did I ever walk up to a picture and look in the corners to see how "sharp" it was. Why? I'm an artist. I understand visuals. But, corner sharpness? It seems insanely bizarre to focus on such a feature. It literally has nothing to do with the subject matter you're shooting.

    So, can someone tell my WHY corner sharpness is so important? I'm honestly curious.

    Hello, what are the best solutions for sports photos at night with correct lighting – Sony a) A7 III + Sony 200-600 lens b) Sony A7 III with Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN or c) panasonic S1R with Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN L-mount Thank you

    I think Tamron 150-600mm G2 is better lens than sigma

    One bonus note for the Sony 200-600mm, the zoom is all internal. While that's less good for compactness, it's better for durability and weather sealing. It is almost a pound heavier, though. It also has two more (rounded) aperture blades and an even shorter minimum focusing distance. I'd been planning to get the Sony lens, but this Sigma is making it a rather difficult decision.

    tamron and sony 200-600 are the same street price in most territories. the tamron were lucky they had some market share before the sigma comes out. regardless of whether this sigma is better (or internally identical) than the widely panned 150-600 G2 lens, they have the publicity team to market it harder over tamron.

    Great review, but as Nikon user, this lens doesn't work for me. Nikon needs to share it's z mount specification with Sigma and Tamron, so us Nikon user can have more lens options.
