In many comparisons between the 500 and 600 there are conflicting opinions as to which is sharper. In my experience there is no visible difference between the 500 and 600 and may come down to the individual lens copy and the users long lens technique.

I agree, in most reliable detailed reviews it is the IQ in the corners that separates the various super telephotos and for birding, most I believe do not care about the slight drop off in edge IQ.
