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

150-500
Review Date: Dec 22, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $779.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: PRICE, Very fast focus, OS, it's a 500!
Cons:
For some weight may matter, zoom creep,

I bought this lens to use at air shows. So far this lens has delivered crisp images at 500 f 18. The OS works well focus is crisp and locks on fast. For some weight may be an issue but try hand holding a 400 2.8....this is a feather compared to that. Lens does have falloff but it easily fixed in Lightroom or Photoshop. This lens may be a little soft wide open but I never use it wide open. This lens may be a perfect lens at a very attractive price for air shows and the like in sunlight.

Most of the reviews I have read are years and years old and Sigma has made improvements to this hunk of glass. My lens is one of the latest production models.
