    Okay...at first I was looking at this lens as well as the Tamron lens, same spec. Both had equal good reviews. Thus, I went and bought the Tamron......within 3 days that lens had dust. ( mind you I have a Canon 100-400 lens for the last 5 years w, heavy use without so much as a speck on its internal lens),,,,returned the Tamron as defective and got another....same thing happened. Needless to say, the third time was the charm and I bought the Sigma 150-600 mm lens. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! First off, the lens itself appears to be put together much much better than the Tamron, the quality of the materials was superior. I test drove it after using the Sigma USB dock which I highly recommend. WOW crisp photos with little effort of the lens to focus quickly at the 600 length. And after 3plus weeks its not had any issue with internal dust or otherwise. This lens is top notch folks. ( coming from a long time dedicated Canon user. I would highly recommend! One last suggestion, take a moment to read the company’s mission statement on a little fold out thats included with the warranty and registration info. This will tell you all you need to know. A plus company with A plus products.

    Great First Super Telephoto Lens

    This lens is a good introduction to the world of super telephoto lenses. As such, you should expect a learning curve until you learn how get the most out of it. In fact, I highly recommend the Sigma Dock as companion purchase so that you tune the lens to your camera. The images were good prior to calibration, Images are pretty stunning afterwards. The calibration process can be time consuming, which consists of taking test shots under 16 different scenarios. However, you are rewarded with excellent images, provided you are thorough and take your time.

    I bought this hoping the take bird pics with great depth of field and great picture quality and I was not disappointed concerning this but was totally pleased in picture quality. the only problem was that after holding the lens up for a while, I feel like the lens weighs about 10 lb(it does't really I don't think) but it still feels like it. I know you can use a tripod but I just usually grab and shoot. If you will use a tripod or have strong muscles it would be great and have great pic quality, but if you want convenience and lack arm strength I don't recommend. I was mixed on this!

    Excellent Lens

    I've gotten into wildlife photography and my 55-200mm lens wasn't cutting it. I did a lot of research before buying a telephoto lens for my Nikon D5200. This lens did not disappoint. I've used for 2 weekends at my local wildlife drive and the quality of my pictures has skyrocketed. Lens is solid, heavy at about 10lbs. Most pictures are sharp and crisp, most that are not are my fault. there is a little learning curve, but I'm ecstatic with this lens.

    First off .. this is a HEAVY LENS (you do need a tripod to help you out) and yes, that case it comes with (and the shoulder straps for the lens itself) is very HANDY INDEED (it stabilizes me and prevents it from falling when I put it on the camera body) but I do enjoy nature photography and nowadays being older, I have a rolling small airline case that I use to hold tripod, lenses and camera body So this one does indeed provide a great choice when photographing birds in wild (I wouldn't have gotten my eagle shots without it!)

    I’m no expert, but this lens is amazing. I am happy with the pictures taken with this lens. It is definitely heavy. Be cautious about that issue. I own a tripod and monopod and they are a necessity. I was taken using it free hand, but braced it on a picnic table and a bench. That did help.

    Great Lens For The Money

    Just got this lens and it is a great lens. I shoot a lot of wildlife and this lens is perfect. It focus fast and the 600mm is a real place getting those close up shots. Very smooth to focus in and out. I researched this lens for about a year and the positive reviews have been right on. For the money it beats paying for a Cannon 600mm lens which is 11K plus.

    This is a great entry level lens into the world of telephoto photography. The best part is that this is simply a great lens. Take the time to purchase the Sigma Dock, so that you can tune the lens to your camera, and get absolutely razor sharp photos with precise bokeh.
