Review of the Nikon AF-S 200-500 F5.6 compared with the Sigma 150-600 Sports and Contemporary. Nikon 200-500 lenses that DON'T have the autofocus issue as explained in the review are: #2007557-2007596, 2008365 and higher. At 600 mm: I scaled the Nikon at 500 mm up to a factor of 1.2 to see the difference between this lens and the Sigma Sports. The Nikon looks upscaled better than the Sigma Sports at 600 mm (wide open)! Also, I got better better results by upscaling the Sigma Sports from 500 mm by a factor of 1.2 to 600 mm in Photoshop than it looked at its native focal length of 600 mm. Remember: I did not fine tune any of the lenses I tested and I don't think that you will see a big difference between these three out in the fields as long as you can get close enough to your subject.
