Build Quality Performance Value for money Recommendable
AF system is a tad slow on the full 600mm extension, but not frustratingly so. It's definitely not a lens you can use without the focus limiter though. On the rare occasion that it hunts, then it takes forever to cycle, so limiting the focus system is a must.
I am quite disappointed in the tripod collar though. It is VERY small for such a long lens and puts a noticeable amount of strain on a tripod because the weight is not even remotely centered. Sigma could really have put a better collar on it, like the one used on the 150-500mm or thee one used on the Sport version. The lens is still very front heavy on a tripod. Even on a sturdy tripod you'll struggle to use this lens one-handed, meaning that you end up switching hands between lens, shutter release and tripod head controller. That's the only reason I've rated the build quality 4/5 stars.
Image quality is great, not as sharp as some of the legendary prime lenses, but honestly, you'll have to do some serious knit-picking to spot any difference in real-world scenarios. The simple fact that a 3rd party super-zoom lens can be compared to a prime lens is testament enough to its image quality.
All in all, this versatile beauty should definitely make it's way onto your wishlist. (Posted on 13/02/2016)
