    Thanks, Peter and Brent. I just removed my sigma from z6ii (make sure OS off) and took a look at the end: 4 screws there. I'll remember and keep checking.

    I would say the lens is working good too. I have not done any focus tuning on mine either. And I have the sigma dock.
    Never thought of sports since I never see any games.

I really haven't done at tests myself as I'm more than happy with the 600mm results.
    Thanks, Peter. Do you mind sharing some of your works from Sigma @600mm? Please post here. Thanks

    Hopefully, the 4 screw version is the newer one and fixes a shortcoming on the three screw version.

    Congrats on your new lens @blackstar
    I got my Bigma before my Z6 and painstakingly used the dock to tune it to my D7500. It went from soft just about everywhere when I bought it to sharp all over after the tune with the dock. Once I got the Z6, I tried the camera/lens combo for sharpness and was very happy with the results. Either the tune I did on the lens through the dock for the D7500 works well for the Z6, or more likely, the Z doesn't have a need for lens calibration as the focus is acquired directly on the sensor in mirrorless bodies, which means I could set those figures to anything I wanted or nothing at all and the Z takes no consideration to what those values are.
    For moving subjects, I'd suggest dogs, cats, squirrels. Bonus points for a dog thats chasing a cat thats chasing a squirrel!

    Hey, TT.

    I so hope you are right about Z's no need for Sigma dock cause I haven't ordered one, but plan to soon. So no hurry now. Always appreciate your insightful info.

    Great subject for moving dogs, cats, and squirrels! Of course, to really up the subject, the squirrel could be chasing at bug!

    @blackstar and @Bikerbrent It is not the screws at the end of the lens that attaches to the camera, but the opposite end near where the lens hood attaches (eg. you don't have to remove the lens from the camera)
