Re: Which Lens should I use?

If you can find a difference in your shots just because of using one or the other of those 150-600's, I'd say you were really really pixel peeping.  Either should be fine, and 10 years ago we'd have been over the moon to see either one on the market.

If you want to go down that path, a used Sigma 150-600 Sports would be slightly better optically, at the cost of a lot more weight.

You'll be helped enormously by the vibration reduction feature on either lens, and that will really help handheld, but 600mm lenses need to be mounted on a sturdy tripod.   And rotated by a quality tripod head.   And conveniently mounted via an ARCA-Swiss clamp system.   You have plenty of research and more $$ ahead of you...
