Re: Did you test the 200-500 VR without a UV filter?

A bit off topic, but could a Sigma expert describe the main differences with the Sport and Contemporary lenses, say the 150-600 ? Optically, build quality, ergonomics, image quality ? Notice the selling price of the S is twice the C. Twice the lens ? Thanks.

Hi there,

The Sport has much better build quality and is made in Japan. It is weather sealed (unlike the Cont.). The IQ of the Sport is better than the Cont. The Sport is heavier than the Cont. You can see the differences in the link below (just look at the graphs for either and decide for yourself).
