Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 AF APO DG OS

150-500
Review Date: Jan 7, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $999.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Reach, OS, full time manual focussing, image quality, build quality.
Cons:
Weight?

I think that, at less than $1,000.00, this is a great deal. It isn't the Canon 500 f/4, but it is less than 1/6 the price.

My lens is sharp throughout the focal range. Better stopped down than wide open (like almost every other lens), but very usable wide open.

Autofocus seems to be good, although I wish there was a focus-limiter on this lens.

The lens is heavy, but not to the point where hand holding is impossible.
