    Cons: None at price point (A bit soft in the corners at 600mm FF, but hey its as good as the Canon EF 400mm F5.6 L which has no IS and about costs about the same and better the Tamron 150-600mm at 600mm)

    Pros: Still decently sharp at 600mm (F8-F11) Autofocus works well on 6D Excellently sharp between 150mm to 430mm Really gives the Canon 400mm F5.6 L a run for the money at 400mm!

    Summary: A fine high value zoom lens. Stabilisation was a problem until I used the Sigma dock and put the OS into the Dynamic mode setting - magic, then it's as good as most Canons' IS. I would assess the Sigma 150-600 C OS benefit as 3.5 stops.

    Cons: Stabilisation isn't very effective. Hard to tell if it is on. Quite heavy Very long zoom ring. I got to handle it several time to zoom from min to max. Too thin focus ring

    Pros: Image quality Nice bokeh Precise and fast AF Looks nice

    Summary: The zoom range is handy for wildlife photography. The focus is flawless and the pictures are all perfect when taken at pretty high speeds. The sharpness is awesome and is mostly limited by air perturbations @600mm. The stab is really the weak link. I have the 24-105 and i can tell it is wayyy better.
