Sigma 150-600/5.0-6.3 OS Sport - Sample Photos (Canon 1DX & Canon 60D)

Today is 11th of March 2015. I have this lens from yesterday and I took some shots.
First impressions are very good - lens is solid, heavy and gives good images (very good to 450 mm, good at 450-600/6.3). Unfortunately 5.0 is only ot 150 mm, 5.6 on 200-300 mm, 6.3 on 400-600 mm.
Lens works with my old Canon tc 2x II (max focal lenght is 1200/13). Soon I will try it with Kenko 1.4x mc4 dgx.

15th of March 2015.
I took more shots and I recorded sample videos. Video quality is good, even on 600 mm (at f/8.0). OS works fine, but it's not good for a handheld videos above 300 mm (lens is too heavy and if you will move camera to the left, right or up and down, picture will not be smooth).
Lens is heavy (with camera it's more than 4 kg), so after few shots I need to take a little break.
As you see I took two shots with 1/100 (sheep & cat), so I am happy with performance of OS.

I tested this lens on three football/soccer matches and I am happy with the results. AF works fast (similar to my previous lens - Canon 300/4 IS), picture quality is good, even on 8000 iso. I changed focal lenghts when it was a rain and strong wind. Condition of this lens is still ok with no dust or water inside.
Sigma works fine with Canon tc 2x II (af is very slow in live view mode), but not with Kenko 1.4x mc4 dgx (AF is a mess).
On my Canon 60D camera picture quality is also good, maybe a little bit softer, but for a bird photography I think that it's a good lens (with max iso at 1000).

Tamron 24-70/2.8 VC - Photos (Canon 1DX)

I bought this lens 3 months ago and so far I took some test shots (Autumn & Winter in Poland is not beautiful now - no snow, but rain, rainy & cloudy weather).
Lens works fine, there are no problems with autofocus (bf & ff), picture quality is very good and VC works great (it's silent and this is very important when you're recording videos).






Pros:
- very good image quality;
- VC is silent and effective (3 EV);
- good build quality (but not perfectly sealed);
- price

Cons:
- image quality in corners;
- high vignetting at 2.8;
- distortion at 24 mm;
- lens is heavy;
- AF is slow in low-light conditions (but it's still ok)
