These are fantastic. What is your body/lens combo if you don't mind me asking? Sounds like the Sigma 150-600, but is it the sport or contemporary? I've been eyeing a longer lens than my 100-400 Canon.

Itís the 150-600S and the body is a Canon 5DMK4

I dropped the 150-600 C in the pool earlier in the year but it took equally good pics!

That is a bummer about the pool! I can't get over how awesome these pictures turned out, I've got to get my hands on one of those lenses. Did you notice any differences in auto focus speed or accuracy swapping from the C to the S?

I'm shooting a 7D MarkII, and it's been great for wildlife photography so far. Eventually I'll go full frame, but in the meantime, I'm trying to build on what I've got and keep learning.

You wonít notice a focusing difference in the lenses, just the body.. I was shooting a 70D before and it has amazing focusing, as does the Mk4 so it was seemless for me.. The Sigma lens is just amazing.. That said, I deal with grain though imagenomic noiseware and it helps the picture quality look better, so itís not all in the lenses and body..

Depends on the size. Usually I just do an image release and you can print it yourself at any good print company like MPix. If your serious, shoot me a PM

Very nice shots, well done! I have the Tamron 150-600 on my Nikon D700. It it amazing with the vibration reduction what kind of photos you can get hand holding this lens. A lot of friends I have up here are using this same lens.
The lens that used to be on my body most of the time was the Nikon 70-200 2.8. Now it sits in the backpack most of the time and my 150-600 has taken center stage the majority of the time when I am shooting wildlife.
For the money, this lens can't be beat.
