Here is another taken today. This little guy (Silver Eyes) is incredibly shy and it’s so small (about the size of my thumb) would not have gotten the shot without the 600mm reach Hello guest!

Very nice shots, well done. Sad to say, I'm just not seeing the sharpness I was hoping for. Is it just me?

Did u click on the photos ? Because it displays the actual photo once you click on it. Otherwise it’s always alittle blurry

Ktsa5239, I stand corrected. When clicking on the photos that do enlarge, I see much sharper detail, thanks.

Looks like the lens is working out very well for you. My experience has been once you find a good combination that works, keep it.

You may not get another lens that works the same, too many variances in quality control. Hate to think what a Leica 600mm lens would cost, probably 6 times the Sigma.

Looking forward to more of your BIF shots!

Those who have both Leica’s VE 90-280 and the Sigma 150-600, I would like to hear your experience on image quality created with Sigma 600mm full frame and Leica 280mm cropped for an equivalent subject size.

The image quality of both the SL90-280mm & Sigma 150-600mm are indeed very close on,

1   Sharpness;

2   Contrast;

3   Colour.

However the handling on continuous AF tracking performance do differ on challenging situation of BIF,

1   Lock-on success rate (mainly due to size of subject against focus tracking box);

2  Sharp images after successful lock-on.

The background looks wrapped from the panning using electronic shutter. Is there any way to remove that post?

re-reading that makes me realise my poor word choices might cause confusion. What I meant was, is it possible to make the background poles straight again in post production?

I don't know if this picture counts as Birds in Flight but here it is.  The Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds flight demonstration team over Houston Texas taken with SL2 and Sigma 150-600mm DG DN OS, @ 600mm, 1/2000 second, ISO 320 hand held.
