I have never seen anyone using one. Sigma and Tamron have made 600mm affordable to more people, but only in a zoom. They can't match the image quality of a foxed 600mm, but the price is much lower. Of course Nikon just announced a camera that does 3000mm. The P1000. It looks amazing too.

Come to MN in January during Eagle season. You'll see them.

The Tamron/Sigma 100- 600 is EVERYWHERE. I've shot both and I'd give the edge to the Sigma as it's a bit better at 600. I think people are buying these things for the 600 end in many cases. If I didn't have the Canon 100-400 II I'd have one in a minute.

I've talked to many a shooter with these and while there's a few that understand what it takes to capture a bird in flight, a whole lot of them complain their shots are soft. Typically the conversation turns to settings and low and behold they're expecting consistent shots at 1/800 sec and below. They'll get lucky from time to time but by and large that's just too slow.

Dead duck here was at 1/1600 sec.

A couple left coast pics.

First is from the Twin Peaks overlook where a photographer was killed for his camera a year or two ago.

The second is the "keyhole" at Pheiffer Beach.

BTW, excuse the watermarks. I do that on FB shots and these are from my FB archive.
