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

Review Date: Sep 16, 2008 Recommend? | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: EVERYTHING ITS A GOOD LENS
Cons:
NONE NOT EVEN THE WEIGHT ITS SUPPOSED TO BE HEAVY ITS A BIG LENS

HAVING OWNED THIS LENS NOW FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS AND USING IT WITH A D300 I WAS A LITTLE DISSAPOINTED WITH PERFORMANCE, TO GET A GOOD SHOT...A KEEPER... I HAD TO USE A TRIPOD AND SET THE CAMERA IN MIRROR UP MODE, THEN I GOT A D700 FULL FRAME AND WOW WHAT A DIFFERENCE, NOW 50% OF MY SHOTS ARE HAND HELD, IT TRULY IS A MAGNIFICENT LENS FOR THE PRICE, ITS AS SHARP AS A TACK AT ALL APETURES, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS LENS ESPECIALLY ON A FULLFRAME CAMERA JUST GO BUY ONE.

Pros: Having had my new lens for about 4 hours and only taken 10 os so photos from my apartment balcony I am already impressed with this lens, the sharpness at 500mm on a tripod are to say the least way beyond my expectations I will post again soon when I have used it in the field. And build quality is also 100%.
Cons:
none so far.

Soon as the delivery man arrived and I was handed the box I thought this is one heavy mutha, pulled it out of its packaging and was in love at first sight, what a manificent lens, straight on my D300 and on the tripod poking out the window, results were amazing, I will post again when I have taken a few more shots.
