Yes, because of the extra reach and quick focus. If you are using it on a crop camera YOU NEED THE EXTRA REACH. This king fisher shot was taken by my wife on a D850 (that crops at 20mps just like the D500)and a Tamron 600 G2 lens. Have you ever seen any other GOOD kingfishers in flight shots on here? Both of these shots were heavily cropped and we wouldn't have gotten them without the extra reach.


Do you use the Tap-in and the custom focus limiter options? I believe with the Tamron you need to reset one of the existing positions while the Sigma has separate customization switches for the optional limit options.

I don't have any images on my computer anymore that I took while testing the other lenses - never thought I'd need them once I made my decision on the Sport. But I do have some images to share taken with the Sport, which has become my most used lens. All of these are hand-held. I can't say that the 600mmF4 delivered better results. But I can say that the extra reach, build quality, image quality and overall feel of the lens were the reasons for my choosing the Sigma over the Nikon, which honestly was my second choice. The Tamron, which was not available when I purchased the Sport would be my first choice, if only for the almost 2 lb lighter load. I rarely use a tripod anymore.

This topic concerning these lenses (you omitted the Tamron 600 G2) has been discussed numerous times here.
The problem is, searching here is by title, and no one would think of searching something like "Zoom lens" for the question asked.
