Sigma 50-500mm f4-6.3 EX APO RF HSM

50_500EX_mdl_1_
Review Date: Jan 21, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Tremendous range and sharp throughout. Certainly a reasonable walk around lens when long shots are a possibility yet it provides good quality flowers and bugs if you can support.
Cons:

I see pre DG models are available for as little $600 now. It's a steal just to have the lens in your kit. This is my third one---keep idiotically selling it for faster glass which don't take good light pictures any better than this lens. If you think this is heavy, spend a few weeks with a 500 F4. Shoulder strap really helps if you leave it long enough to ride your hip with glass down. Lens focuses just swell with my 1.5 Kenko or 1.4 Tamron. It's a lot of reach for the $$$.
