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

50_500EX_mdl_1_
Review Date: Jan 20, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Extremely well built lens. HSM works nice and quietly. I'm very impressed with this lens so far. Very sharp for a lens in this price catagory.
Cons:
Requires a good dosis of light but can be compensated with higher ISO usage. Weiging 1.85kg, it's a heavy lens.

I'm using this lens in combination with my Nikon D50. As the lens weighs a ton, I find that by adding a battery grip (available from Hahnel, Mercury & Opteka) places the entire setup much more balanced. The lens can be handheld (naturally within limits) but tripod usage is recommended.
