Just got my Sigma 50-500 Friday and did some shooting today at a local wildlife refuge. Very pleased with results so far and I know I can get better as I become used to the big monster. Haven't tried any hand held shoots yet. The locking device and OS is easy to get to and can be switched on and off even with gloves on. I use a Nikon D5100 and auto focus works extremely well! I wonder why the instructions tell you to not use OS when on a tripod? Very happy with in just the two days I've owned!

A good lens for enthusiast shooters, it's no canon L series but then again it's a fraction of the cost of canon's closest rival.

When originally purchased I developed a fear and loathing of this lens, fitted to my D60 it was slooooow to focus, hunted a lot, required the use of 400 or 800 ISO for hand holding or in less than full light (the D60 was not great at 400+ ISO) and was nothing more than a heavy pain in the arse....
When I upgraded to a 20D I learnt to love it .... focuses quicker, hunts less and with the 20D getting great shots at 800 ISO it really shone.

It is big and it is heavy so not the greatest of travel and/or walk around lenses but if your like me and do most of your shooting at normal or wide angle it's a great value for money/bang for your buck lens to add to you kit to cover everything from 50mm up.

After two weeks of frequent use after purchase in Sept. 2006: I'm really enjoying it, both in auto-focus and in manual modes. I try to have the subject fill the frame whenever possible, and such close-ups show the lens produces crisply sharp detail. It has sufficient depth of field for most situations, but where I've used shallow focus the bokeh has been a delight.

Speed of focus on a Nikon D70 has not been too much of a problem so far. I have not tried to capture flying birds as yet, but achieved fair success on hovering dragonflies using manual focus, hand-held.

The lens is well known to be heavy, and I carry it suspended around my neck using the strap provided when holding it for any length of time. (I also have a wrist strap on the camera body at all times). A monopod is very helpful whenever convenient.

Use of the built-in lock is necessary to prevent extension creep when the lens is pointed down, but the lock button is conveniently located and its use soon becomes a habit that presents no problem.

That lens is no lightwight but its quality is superlative ! I really recommand it to serious shooters as its price is right and its reach is simply fabulous. For digital, the new very is a definite plus.
Recommanded A+++
