  • Summary: I experienced numerous erroneous readings when using the 50-500 lens, for example: a reading of f:0, F99 or no reading whatsoever along with camera freezing that required a battery removal to reset the camera. I returned the lens for another copy. That copy worked for months of little usage, however when I needed it for continuous use during the fall birding season it failed after a few days, exhibiting the same problems as the original lens.

Very good lens

  • Summary: I am using it with Nikon D800. The lens is amazing, it is very sharp, AF is very precise and spot on, it is fast enough to be useful when photographing fast flying jets at the air show. The VR system is superb - I am consistently getting sharp photos at 500 mm and 1/10 sec when using monopod. The only disadvantage of this lens is its weight, it is so heavy I only carry it when I am sure I will need 500mm (birds, airplanes and rockets).

  • Summary: I bought this lens to take pictures of the beautiful places in Haiti. I photographed many places like mountains, beaches, people and many more....It did the job well as you don't need a 2.8 aperture lens to take pictures in a tropical area where the sun shines all the day. If you can not afford a 6,000$ lens, it is the way to go!!!

  • Summary: I used this lens on a safari to Kenya and Tanzania. I captured some really spectacular shots, with my Nikon D90, that would not have been possible with a lesser lens. It really is an outstanding piece of equipment at a great price point. It is heavy though and rather large which I did not mind. In fact at one of our tour stops a young man nervously tapped me on the shoulder and told me he and his friends initially thought I was carrying a bazooka.

  • Summary: Fast and easy. The lens is excellent and I have taken several hundred pictures with it. I took many pictures on the Lower Danube in Bulgaria from the top of a river boat- They were excellent. Great picture quality and easy to use- I can even hand hold it.

This is an amazing lens!!

  • Summary: I purchased my Sigma 50-500 through Amazon a little over a month ago for my Nikon D3200. Since then, I haven’t put it down long enough to write a review. To date I’ve shot about 3000 photos with amazing results. I’m not an expert with photography, so I will bypass all the technical stuff and give you straight information. I’ve shot everything from sunrises to sunsets, harbor scenes, whale watching, sports, and nature (eagles, ospreys and any other bird that happens by).

Impressive

  • Summary: Having never owned an aftermarket lense, I relied heavily on feedback from previous owners of this lense. So far, I am happy with the decision to purchase this lense for my Nikon D7000. Yes, it is heavy and big but I am not surprised as I read the specs before purchase and I was also looking at the new Nikkor 80-400mm, but at almost double the price this hobbyist photographer just could not justify the purchase.
