Great wildlife/bird lens!!

  • Excerpt: I have had the Sigma 50-500mm for a few years now and I am well pleased with the lens and the quality. The only thing that needs work is that the AF searches a good bit at times, it is worse in low light or really "cluttered" capture areas such as a bird in a thicket, etc.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

More power in a single lens

  • Excerpt: Really gives the zoom needed to bring that far away item up close and personal.Rather heavy so will be a lot more to lug around. Wish there was some better way for more zoom without all the added weight.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Heavy

I thought it was a very good lens, as far as my old

  • Summary: I purchased this, tried it for awhile, then returned it. Even so, I thought it was a very good lens, as far as my old, amateur eyes can tell. It also contained a number of useful goodies in the package. The tripod included with the kit was useless with this lens.

  • Excerpt: after much agony about the 150-500 or this one, 50-500, I dug deep and pulled out a grand and a half for a camera lens. Arrived as scheduled and in good shape. I've taken pictures of soccer matches.

Super value for the buck.

  • Excerpt: I use it for all types of wildlife, Flowers, air shows, fast sailboats etc. This is one amazing lens as long as you have enough light to satisfy that f/6.3. It has nice crisp focus and feels nice and tight around the barrel. The only drawback is it's 4lbs.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Good product, but heavy to carry around.

  • Summary: Just got the beast. It is a nearly 2Kg lens, which means that shooting by hand is tiresome to say the least. If stabilized correctly, the quality of the pictures is excellent. I attached a pistol remote shutter release to the tripod strip, and handling got a lot easier.
