Lens Test: Sigma 50-500mm F/4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM

  • Excerpt: The first version of this lens earned the nickname Bigma for its 4.25-pound heft and huge size.Now comes Son of Bigma ($1,600, street), lighter at a little less than 4.2 pounds, yet with a number of optical improvements including image stabilization.Like the original, this 50–500mm boasts the broadest zoom range—10X—of any Sigma full-frame lens. That’s far more range than the Canon 100–400mm f/4.5–5.6 IS (4X) or Nikon 80–400mm f/4.5–5.6 VR (5X) stabilized full-framers.

  • Summary: The Sigma 50-500mm APO DG OS HSM F4.5-6.3 is Sigma's latest version of their 50-500mm superzoom lens, commonly known as the "Bigma". Introduced in February, 2010, it replaces the old 50-500mm F4-6.3 EX DG HSM and features a slightly modified optical formula, losing half a stop at the wide end in order to facilitate the new built-in Optical Stabilization (OS) feature.

  • Excerpt: An impressive 10x zoom range for just over £1100, but has Sigma been a little over-ambitious with this superzoom optic?

  • Conclusion: The Sigma 50–500 mm f/4.5–6.3 APO DG OS HSM model supplemented the offer of that Japanese producer very nicely. Firstly, it substitutes for its predecessor, which didn’t boast any stabilization system, so useful in this range. Secondly, it fits neatly in the line-up of other models, starting with the 120-400 mm OS and progressing to the 150-500 mm OS.
  • Cons: f/6.3 fastness already near 220 mm focal length,, image quality at the maximum aperture for 400-500 mm focal lengths range could have been better,, weak image quality at the frame edge in the range of 400-500 mm focal lengths,, work against bright light leaves something to be desired.

  • Excerpt: Sigma’nın değişken odak aralıklı tele objektifi APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM, kuş gözlemcileri, astro fotoğrafçılar ve manzara fotoğrafçıları için oldukça kullanışlı bir aralığa sahip. 95cm gibi alışılmadık bir filtre çapına sahip objektifin ön optik elemanı oldukça büyük tutulmuş.

  • Summary: A fotósok körében csak Bigmának becézett 50-500mm-es objektív, bizonyára sokak szívét megdobogtatja azok közül, akik viszonylag elérhető áron szeretnének egy sokoldalú nagy teleobjektívet vásárolni. Az optika Canon bajonettes változata járt nálunk.

  • Summary: Na koniec można zastanowić się nad jeszcze jedną rzeczą. Mamy teraz wyraźnie tańszy i słabszy optycznie model 150–500 mm OS oraz droższy i lepszy 50–500 mm OS. Czy nie lepiej byłoby, aby w cenie około 6000–7000 złotych Sigma zaproponowała nam model 150–500 mm OS, a w cenie około 4000 zł gorszy optycznie 50–500 mm OS?
  • Pros: solidne wykonanie,, dobra lub bardzo dobra jakość obrazu w centrum kadru i to praktycznie dla całego zakresu ogniskowych,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru dla zakresu 50–300 mm,, mało uciążliwa aberracja chromatyczna,, niewielka dystorsja,, znikomy astygmatyzm,, mała koma,, niewielkie winietowanie na matrycy APS-C/DX,, cichy i skuteczny autofokus,, mała wartość minimalnej odległości ostrzenia,, bogate wyposażenie standardowe,, dwa lata gwarancji z możliwością prze...
  • Cons: jasność f/6.3 już od okolic ogniskowej 220 mm,, jakość obrazu na maksymalnym otworze dla ogniskowych 400–500 mm mogłaby być lepsza,, słaba jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru dla ogniskowych 400–500 mm,, praca pod ostre światło pozostawia trochę do życzenia.
