I did some shooting with it at the Bangkok Foto Fair half a year ago. They had this Sigma lens and the Canon 1200/5,6 at the same place. I could try them for 45 minutes. It was so fun that I had to go back the next day and do it again

Touche, or to un-date myself, ftw.
I suppose it could be described as a mani-Tee mount, for easy use with different camera brands.

I wonder if that's the lens that that French paparazzi used to get those topless shots of Kate... that nice green color looks like it would blend right in at the tree line that folks claimed that those shots was taken from... from what, a half mile away?!

VOB (Voice activated Bi-Pod).... unless I missed a disability in the picture....

I'd be that guy who brought that to my kids' soccer games. If I ever get married.

I feel like this entire thread is an extended dick joke. Roger, it's inspiring that a man your age can perform.

Holy crap. That's hardly an unboxing... :-O

I was expecting the black case to make an ominous whoosh when they first opened the massive lid.

And if you break it the travel case doubles as a coffin. Convenient.

Would they have a sense of humor if you painted it white to match the other Canon lenses you have there?

Coincidentally, I saw a gigantic lens on video camera used to film Toyota commercial last Friday night -- Space Shuttle getting towed by Tundra pick-up across I-405 freeway bridge.

Do you have a 1:1 crop of that lens? I would love to figure our what it is. It mounted to an Arri Alexa for sure. The fisher dolly it is mounted to evolved from WWII bomb loading dollys. They are crazy well built

Fred, that video is... epic.
The music was well chosen.

That is incredible...

I would buy one, if I could afford it.
No question about it.

Sigma is a company with big balls, that's for sure.

I think it's one of those "if you have to ask . . . " questions. It's going to be used for video from center field at the World Series. They didn't ask about shipping costs


I'm just curious what the crop factor is for this lens on a video camera...
