A Major Disappointmment

Adorama
10 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I will be returning this lens. I bought it for bird photography. It is a very very heavy 4.5 lbs. It is very bulky. Even though they claim it can be hand held with great results because of its in lens optical stabilization I found that didn't work at all. You must have a tripod or forget it. Most of the time when you point it at a subject it just sits there out of focus and doesn't even hunt. It just sits there.
  • Pros: Manual Focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus, Tough To Attach

  • Summary: It was quite heavy & didn't make much difference in its focal length. I already have a 400mm and thought I might gain more DOF.

Piece of Junk

  • Excerpt: I have had two of the Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 APO DG OS HSM Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon SLR Cameras. The first one I shot about 1,000 images in two days on a Nikon D3 and the AF failed. I received a replacement lens the next week and shot 800 images with a Nikon D700 and Nikon D3 and the AF failed again.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: AF failed, Blurry Focus, Heavy, Slow Focus

do not buy this product

james smith "jimmy 's reports", Amazon

  • Summary: -This lens is unacceptable. Sigma should remove this line from production until they get this lens to work properly. -Sigma makes zoom lenses with interesting range, the range we dream about such as 18-250. 50-500. I bought the 18-250 in the past and it was satisfactory. So i thought the 50 to 500 will be the same- I was wrong. -The main problem with this lens is that it does not auto focus at all beyond 200 mm. Another reviewer had the same problem.

  • Summary: der mir und meinem Geldbeutel weh tut. Die Tele Aufnahmen mit Telekonverter 2XEX APO DG sind schwierig scharf zu kriegen. Ohne Stativ geht da wohl gar nichts. Deshalb nehme ich es auch selten für Tele Aufnahmen. Für Tele ein Tele .....
