Thought I might as well start a thread as folks are going to soon be getting one.
All are wide open handheld. The OS works well as does the AF. Have not done any fine tuning yet.

Nice pic's.

Yup, the sports model.. a bit heavy but hand holdable at least for a while. The 1.4 converter focuses in good light but not at all when in dim light.

I received my Sigma 150-600mm Sport lens this past week, and went out to shoot a pair of Burrowing owls Sat. morning. It sure was easier to handhold the lens vs. setting up my tripod and 500mm amid rocks. I was hoping for a little action, but they were pretty lazy this morning.

Jeannean,

Where did you shoot these burrowing owls? Great shots.

Thanks!

Thank you both.

B- I shot them near McAllen, TX. (where I live). They're living on a levee fortified with rocks, on a floodway between the Rio Grande river and Mexico. These are the first Burrowing owls I've seen, so I was pretty excited to find them a couple of weeks ago. This was my third visit. The other two times, I used my older 500mm f/4 on my Gitzo tripod with gimbal head, and my 300mm 2.8 VR II handheld. The RAW files from the 300mm 2.8 VR II are sharper, but no surprise there, since that's the sharpest lens I've ever used, even with heavy crops. It's also a lot more expensive and is a prime. The comparison between the 500mm f/4 (old version) is pretty similar in sharpness to the Sigma viewed at 100%.

I shot this through the rain and underbrush today and I am surprised one even came out. SOOC and 100% crop.

This crop shows off what the lens can do Ron. Some day I'll get to join this thread.

I'm a Sigma fan, have a few of them. I'm not surprised at the excellent IQ of the 150-600mm, the sharpness and creamy bokeh. Too heavy for me for handheld use, otherwise I'd be seriously interested.

For some reason, I had missed this thread when I searched and thus created another one:
http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1368092/

I am hoping Fred can merge it with this one. I already posted a message there with a link so folks come to this thread instead for posting their sample images.

Here are a few of our sample shots during the one time so far we got a chance to go out with the lens:

Just got mine from samys, now the question began, should I pair it with d7200 for the reach or d810 for the FF look and better balance ? Will post pics later
