    Nikon 200-500mm vs Tamron 150-600mm vs Sigma 150-600mm C

    Read this comparison earlier today. Seemed pretty reasonable. Thought it was worth sharing.

    I liked it because it said this: For wildlife only, Niki’s razor sharp center results tip the scales in her favor. Consider mating her to a DX body to get rid of the soft corners and get more reach.

    I don't see any mention of the USB dock for the Sigma. It is time consuming to adjust the focus, but you can also fiddle with autofocus settings. Not sure if the C or S versions are different but that adjustability could be really handy longer term.

    id take the tamron. I have a 70-200 so nothing interests me to shoot with the tamron up to 300mm and the tamron is better from there and longer. corner to corner sharpness and fast accurate AF. dust pump, non issue. I dont shoot birds in flight so not an issue with af lock up. that nikon looks nice but "soft at long distances, especially in the corners at longer focal lengths;" kinda kills it for me. Id buy a lens like this for the 400mm+ range and if it cant do that decently...

    big and bulky..? theyre all big and bulky -wth..

    I had the C and the dock,i would imagine fine tuning via the dock would be very time consuming,although Sigma do not admit it my C had all the same adjustments as the S.

    Although he has conclusions in this,it is a lot like my mother used to say 6 of one and half a dozen of the other good write up though.

    Thanks for posting this!

    From that write up it would be the Nikon for me. The main factor being superior centre sharpness close up. Getting close will still yield the best results in most instances and if I've taken the time to get close to the subject, I want the best performing lens.
    My main frustration with my 70-300 tammy is how much softer it seems at minimum focusing distance, my shots shouldn't look worse when I get closer.

    Hi,

    I don't like that kind of subjective reviews.
    Why must "just" a opinion of "just" a guy convince me to buy a kind of lens.
    It's like, if you can write a good story, you've got right...
    Hundreds of "no name" reviews are polluting the Internet (Don't say this is one...).
    Facts, numbers, exact comparisons in equal tests... Those are the things which can convince me.
    Subjective parts like bokeh, okay, I like to read someone's opinion about it, but in combination of examples.
    So I can conclude myself.
    I stopped reading after his "sharpness test" pics, a conclusion after taking three different pics...
    I rather look at sites like The-Digital-Picture.com features Canon DSLR Camera and Lens Reviews, News, Deals and Tips and LenScore™ Digital Camera Lens Rating to compare lenses.

    I would never take any one type of result as gospel,i like to see various tests and opinions even the personnel ones,that's the beauty of the web such scope,i would always spend a lot of time looking at actual images taken by the lens,again only one aspect.
