Shocked !!! 70-200mm f/2.8 vrii vs sigma 150-600mm C

Hi to all

I am new here so a big hello. I would like to hear some opinions. My self and my wife have just upgraded our gear we just got full frame camera the nikon d610, I got the 70-200 vrii f/2.8 & my wife got the sigma 150-600 C. We have some other smaller cheaper lenses and we share gear.

To compare lenses I just went out with my d610 took some shots with the 70-200 at 185mm f/7.1 then took the same shot with the sigma 150-600 at the same 185mm f7.1 and to my surprise and abit of horror considering the nikon cost me £700 more the sigma, on closer inspection on the pc the shots from the sigma lens are sharper the than nikon.

Now I dont know what to do should I sell the nikon and get sigma and maybe another lens with the change. I wanted the nikon 70-200 for a few years and was very happy to get it with my new D610, I am gutted to see the sigma is sharper.

Any ideas from you guys would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance John
