  • Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    very good value, not tooheavy, high usability in the field hand held, nice built
    no WR, MF ring too narrow, collar tripod too short

    This lens is actually a bargain ; it will deliver excellent results even at 600mm to the condition of a steep learning curve and an intensive practice.
    Once it's done, the lens is easy to handheld shoot
    It's advisable to get the Sigma USB dock and use some customization settings especially the one that completely reduces the distracting jitteriness and twitching of the OIS, same for AF set priority to precision, and other AF micro adjustment if needed
    Most pleased with it : highly recommended 4.5/5 !!
