Pretty interesting. The fact that it doesn't extend is not only smart, but I think it really helps with handling. For instance I find the Sigma 150-600 C at max extension a bit unpleasant to hold - also I'm always worried to put a hand at the front extreme for fear of introducing wobbling in the tube.
I'm not surprised that at 600mm the borders are not so great - I'd be curious to know how they are at 550mm or such.
PS I really don't understand why in 2020 manufacturers don't make Arca-style plates...
Sony a6300, Sony a6000, Sony NEX-6, Sony E 10-18mm F4 OSS, Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS, Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS, Sigma 150-600mm Æ’/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary, Samyang 12mm Æ’/2, Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN | A, Meyer Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm Æ’/2.8, Samyang 8mm Æ’/3.5 fish-eye II | Zenit Helios 44-2 58mm Æ’/2
Plus some legacy Nikkor lenses.
Very positive review. In particular central sharpness at the long end is indeed quite unique, not many lenses at such price point can deliver such, if any.
Klaus, thank you for reviewing this lens! Great option for birds and the price is reasonable.
On the specs did you mean 618mm? It shows 318mm.
Even better than.
Thank you BC.
