here are a few shots with the new Sigma 100-400 Zoom. Picture one is a turtle in a pond this sucker is about 12 inches long. The second picture is a Malliard duck posing for me about 40 ft away And the third is Downtown L.A. in a lot of Haze. I used the DeHaze filter from LR to DeHaze it.

Well that seems to show it has very decent IQ. Makes it a good choice for those who don't shoot Canon or Canon shooters who don't want to spend $2K on their 100-400.

You may be better served by a D500 and the Nikon 200-500 zoom.

It looks like the new Sigma is doing a great job. Very sharp photos. It's funny, the reflection of the turtle's head in the water makes it appear like it could be bizarre four-eyed turtle.

Why? There is a big difference in Weight walking around with a Nikon 200-500 zoom then the Sigma 100-400. Like more then a couple pounds. I knew what I was doing. I also own the Sigma 150-600. Won't walk around with that either.

Nice! I need to read more about this lens. How's the build quality?
