Sigma APO 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 EX DG OS HSM Review

  • Summary: So has Sigma been over-ambitious? Yes, a little. This would be a much better performer if it were a 50-400mm zoom, especially given that it is compatible with Sigma’s 1.4x and 2.0x tele-converters for when extra reach is needed.
  • Pros: A very versatile lens
  • Cons: Poor performance at 500mm

REVIEW: Sigma 500mm f/4.5 APO EX DG

26 June 2008
  • Conclusion: Overall this lens performs extremely well and produces some excellent shots. In the specialist areas where it would be used, such as Wildlife and sports, it proves easy to handle and, just as importantly, carry.
  • Pros: Good build and finish, Fast quiet autofocus, Very usable wide open, Manageable for its type, Close focus distance is good.
  • Cons: Lacks a little contrast, Hood a little short for the focal length.
