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

Review Date: Aug 30, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $650.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: 10x zoom, HSM, EX, locksystem - all included so with hood en bag
IQ not so good on the long end (as most zooms). HSM isn't equal to USM. Weight

Nice 10x zoom lens. But no match to the Canon 28-300 L. Even the Tamron SP 200-500 outperforms this lens easily in almost all tests i did.

This lens weights a lot, due to a lot of glass inside.

If you look for an easy to use, affordable superzoom lens that delivers quality, this is your lens. With a smaller pocket the starters superzoom will be an option. A bit more to spend, take the Canon 28-300 L This lens is much better, but doesnt have 500mm. In need of 500mm, the Tamron is much cheaper, much lighter & with better results.
