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

150-500
Review Date: Aug 10, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: Fantastic value for $$ 500mm reach Surprised by capabilities
Cons:
Heavy (but that goes without saying and is actually not too bad with the lens strap on)

I am very pleasantly surprised with this lens in terms of performance in a variety of situations and would not hesitate to recommend it if you are looking for reach, but don't want to pay Canon L lens prices (for me, it was an obvious choice because I live in the middle of the city and don't often require such a long lens, so the $ savings can be allocated to other lenses)

Posted a series of test shots and first impressions here:
