Sigma has just released this terrific new lens!

The cost 1399€ (vs 2100 for Sony) is quite competitive.

Performance specs seems not that different in terms of geometrical MTF/resolution (am I right or not?), while the lens is more compact (appx 5cm less, little lighter), has some more range at the wide end (150 vs 200), sports some welcome features (custom button, fix modes, 1.4.2x teleconverters).

Being not a pro, and willing a 600mm range for my A7r3, I'm to... preorder one

But before... any ideas vs the Sony excellent (but pricy) 200-600mm?

Thanks

Sony has internal zoom so less dust in the lens and in the camera.

Sigma potential problems with AF - not sure about it, to be tested.

Sigma has arca swiss compatible foot.

Sigma is black so a point here.
