Oh I didn't realize you had both the sport and the contemporary! I should send you my 80-400G for a full analysis

, for sure!

Here is the same image cropped different ways. Shot wide open on the Sport @ F6.3 - 600mm. Very impressed with the sharpness of this lens. The contemporary is no slouch but the sport is just a touch better.

Thanks Kelvin!

Here are a few more. After using the C & S versions back to back I have decided to keep the sport and return the Contemporary. They are both amazing lenses but I'm a sucker for the build quality and slight edge in sharpness at F6.3 that the sport gives.

I'm kind of surprised you were able to get your hands on a sport edition! I've been wanting to at least try it against my 80-400 to see how it compares and how heavy it really is, taking backpacking etc.

It is heavy. Not really a backpacking lens. The contemporary is much better for that sort of thing. I have had the sport on pre-order since december. I cancelled recently but the store called and I took it anyways. Glad I did because it is an amazing chunk of glass.

I had the Nikon 80-400 vr 2 and n my humble opinion this is a sharper and better built lens

So I tried the 2xiii on this lens but it doesn't fit. Does anybody know if the nikon 1.4x version fits or do you have to use the Sigma versions?

Last week I decided to get the Sport, so I ordered it on Amazon and it came - no problem. I did not preorder or anything. Seems like it is easily available (or I was lucky?)

That's good to know, maybe more are coming over.

Us Canadians usually get the short-stick when it comes to first dibs on stuff, which is why I'm so surprised

Tried out the 150-600 C again at the Washington zoo. The flamingo shots were taken with glass+net. Thanks for looking.

I have to admit I love this lens.
Went to the Killman Zoo in Caledonia, Ontario, Canada on Saturday. Here is the full photo and then a crop at 100%.
It has gone through Lightroom with defaults. I made adjustments because the lighting was very harsh so just did lighting adjustments. There is no clarity or any sharpening added and no noise reduction. These are with the Sigma C and my Nikon D810.
Taken at F/8 600mm ISO 720 1/640sec.

This is the full image reduced to 1200pix long


This is the 100% crop

I'm beginning to get a better understanding of the best methods to handhold this lens. I'm very happy with the results that it is capable of. I couldn't be happier.

Nikon TC-14EII (and new III version) does NOT fit to (my) Sigma 150-600 f6.3 Sport, sorry.

Nikon TC's don't work on my 120-300 Sigma Sport and the Sigma TC's (I have both of the new ones) Don't work on my Nikkor lenses either.

A couple from today (D750+Sigma C). The minimum focus distance could be problematic sometimes for shots like those.

Thanks for looking.
