Full Version: Why so few reviews about the SEL200600G?

I was curious to see how the SEL200600G performs in comparison to the Sigma 150-600 C/S. I'm not really interested in buying it - I'm fine with the Sigma C - and I'm pretty sure the Sony performs better (after all it costs about twice the money), I just wanted to understand how much better. But either I was unable to google for it or there are just a few reviews around, and nobody made a direct comparison.
I'm not looking for it but I occasionally follow Mark Smith's YT videos: https://youtu.be/nPPssmK53Us and https://youtu.be/PWnm38kIGLY and the inevitable Jared: https://youtu.be/2V8xixshHLM
That Sony does not look better, there. And which Sony lens does not cost twice as much as a Sigma?

The Sony and the Sigma Sport look pretty similar in terms of resolution from those charts .... but that is where the Sport's glory ends ....
  The Sport is heavier and poorly balanced at 600mm with it's huge 105mm front element hanging way out in front there .... and zooming is a "fairly stiff multi hand turn movements event" with a big change in COG  which makes it front heavy and awkward to use. 
...... by comparison, zooming on the Sony is a "one light fingered affair" that only takes a quarter of a turn of the zoom ring .......... and with no barrel extension ......... nice! ...
  
 Sony owners had very little choice for a super tele-zoom then all of a sudden they have the best one out there ....

 ....... hopefully Sigma and Tamron will follow suite with internal zooming!
