Here are a few more pictures from the Sigma 150-600 Contemporary with my Canon 70D. These were all taken hand held. I am going to have to get a harness. Wearing this 4+ pound lens around your neck, it doesn't take long to get a sore neck.

Was faced with the same decision, was shooting canon 5DII, wanted a 600. Ended up going with a sony a7iii and a 200-600 zoom sony also. With in camera image stabilization, and stabilized lens as well, it was a fraction of the cost of the Canon lens which would yield comparable results. Quite usable handheld.

Good luck.
In addition to the tripod, make sure you get a remote shutter trigger. Even pushing the shutter button can jostle the camera and ruin the photos.

Most cameras nowadays have apps you can use to trigger them with a smartphone, but I like the dedicated button for simplicity. Sometimes, getting the camera to communicate with the smartphone can be a PITA.

Wired or wireless are okay, as long as you don't want to be in your own photos. If you do- go wireless.

Nice pics! I use a shoulder strap, takes the weight off your neck and still allows a lot of mobility and quick shots.
