I had my eye on either the Tamron or the Sigma 150-600, but then Nikon came out with the 200-500. So somewhat less distance but apparently it was supposed to be dead sharp even wide open. Well, check for yourselves, but I am happy with the new glass. Actually affordable ...

By the way, the watermark on the images is a scan of my dad's logo, when he had the photo-studio/shop in Germany.... I am proud to continue in his footsteps.

Congrats! All of the shots are nice, but that last one is super. Almost looks 3D with the creamy bokeh.

Yeah, I think your dad would be proud. :)

VERY nice, and VERY sharp also. Def a keeper. Love the detail in the rope and the windings on it.

That is some sharp lens. Congrats on the new addition.
