Sigma 60-600mm F/4.5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports

Does anyone have some experience with the new Sigma 60-600mm F/4.5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports? As specially with the original S5 (or other DFD only Bodys). Best would be a comparison to the 150-600.

I own the 150-600 and could try the 60-600 at an exhibition 2 weeks ago. It feels more heavy, even it is only 200g more weight. The IS seems to be better (that was also stated by the sales guy from Sigma). I was shooting handheld through the exhibition room with 600mm and 1/60 with sharp results. That was quite impressive. But I could not really test the AF.

But actually there is a price difference of around 1000€ (in Germany). If you look for a tele lens, the 150-600 delivers very sharp results for a great price.

I tried to upload some pictures, but I always got the answer "too large" . The last try was below 1MB per file... I have to check the maximum size and will com e back...
Here are 2 pictures, heavy crops from the original files to go with 2000px and 500KB ...

Both S1R with the 150-600, f 6.3
