nikon d7500 Build and optical quality are better than the price would indicate. It is small and lightweight with impressive sharpness and contrast through most of the zoom range and apertures. However, I returned the lens to Adorama because the sharpness and contrast were noticeably lower at 400mm. Unlike other reviewers that saw the softer edges and corners at 400mm, I found the center, edges, and corners to be softer at 400mm. The lens appeared to be well centered with all corners looking the same. The IQ was not good enough at 400mm and I would use 400mm most of the time for wildlife shots. The stabilizer and focus worked well. I want to be able to print large in the quest for that special shot so I do pixel peep.

If you are talking about the Sigma 100-400/6.3, then you must have had a defective copy.

Mine was surprisingly sharp on an APS-C camera (haven't checked the corners or edges of FF).
