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

50_500EX_mdl_1_
Review Date: Apr 8, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $820.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Zoom range, sharpness over entire range.
Cons:
Slowish at F6.3. Needs some support, but handheld shots are possible.

I've had this lens for almost two years and it is still my favourite lens. I mainly use it with a monopod or resting on a vehicle for support. I've found in most cases that any softness is due to camera shake.

Highly recommended for wildlife and bird photography. The zoom range is especially suited to the size of animals in Africa.
