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 400 mm, good above 400 mm). 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.
OS is ok, I can take steady shots on 600 mm with 1/100.

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 ok with 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, but soft at 6.3 (especially at 500-600 mm). For a bird photography I think that it's a good lens (with max iso at 1000), but it looks better on full frame camera on all aperture settings and focal lenghts.

8th of May 2015
More tests on Canon 60D.
What can I say about this camera and lens? If you need it for a bird photography or wildlife and you like good picture quality, you will need to stop down aperture to 7.1-8.0 at 500-600 mm (there's no need to do this on a full frame camera). It reminds me situation with my previous lens - Canon 300/4 IS, where this lens was too soft on f4, good at 5.6 on Canon 60D. On Canon 1DX it was good at 4.0, very good at 5.6.
Autofocus is ok on a static scenes and situations (when you will use a limiter it will be faster), but for a fast moving subjects it's not good in my opinion (I think that on a 7D II it's much better). On Canon 1DX its fast and accurate.

26th of June 2015
I took many shots on air show (sky was overcast). Resolution is very good (but it's much worse when you shoot under the light), af works fine (no hunt). For panning max in this lens for me is 1/100 - 1/160.
Here you can check some shots (last 11 shots, without last two with F-16, I took with Canon 70-200/2.8 IS II):
