Sigma 100-400 and Nikon 300 pf Test

With the Sigma 100-400 I has a few years ago and the 300 pf I did some test shots (distance about 100m ) . The test is not fully compareable, but gives an impression what the Sigma can deliver compared to the 300 pf at 300mm with a 24Mpix camera. The 300 pf is stopped down to f5.6, the Sigma is stopped down to f6.7 (and wide open in the last shot)

Although the 300 pf is sharper the IQ of the Sigma is surprisingly good for me (good enough for my style of photography) and the flexibility of 100-400 mm and the light weight is the reason why I bought the Sigma again.

The IQ at 400 mm is the same compared to the 300 mm

and another test

the 300 pf with the TC 1.4 III and the Sigma at 400 mm.

The 300 pf with the TC is sharper , but for me the IQ of the Sigma is "good enough" (ISO is different, but I don´t know why I had here different ISOs)
