This lens is sharp, very fast and with the A9 very accurate. However, until I bought the 200-600 I was not happy with Sony colours, the 200-600 changed that dramatically. Who knew..

I have been all Canon for the past 15 years and new to Sony (since November)

I still find the 100-400mm to be a little bit sharper than the 200-600mm, but I like the extra reach natively. I like the 200-600mm better for capturing Birds-in-Flight as I can still it on a gimbal and balance it only once as it has an internal zoom, then 100-400mm not so much. Though hand holding the 100-400mm is the clear winner in that department. I find the colors to be better on the 200-600mm, but I never really concerned about colors as it's easily corrected in post (In my opinion).
