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

50_500EX_mdl_1_
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
Cons:
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.
