I mainly went out with the intention of shooting Sunbirds but close to MFD the magnification is actually quite decent.

I'm reviewing the Sigma 150-600 SPORT right now and comparing it with the Tamron.  I can't really tell any real difference in image quality (surprisingly), and the Sigma actually vignettes much heavier (also surprising, considering the front element is 10mm bigger!)

What's great about this lens is that you can take it with you without worrying about it too much. I took this one on the way home from work today. The heron was posing nicely for an environmental portrait along the road. I saw the nervous bokeh in the viewfinder and it shows up in the shot. I've always thought the quality of the background blur was really good with this lens so I don't know what the deal is here?

Hi Dustin, have you completed your review on the two 150-600's yet?
I'm very interested to read it as I think one of these on a 5DIII (my next purchase) should offer excellent performance!

I've done the Sport review (you can see it here: http://bit.ly/1RhfI3z ) and I just received the Contemporary and am starting to review it.
