Got mine from a charity shop in a rich part of town, and as I was leaving the shop, was called back, as I'd forgot the sherpa that was supplied with it.
Alot of good he was, as he had a strained back, after carrying the heavy end into the shop, with a passing weightlifter.
Sigma has incorperated many weightsaving materials into this lens, so making it easier to lift onto the back of a pickfords low loader, with the help of a medium sized crane.
Sigma have very good after sales too, and sent a crew of five to stay for the weekend, 4 to move it around, while the other one removed the rear element, and climbed inside to remove a fox, that had managed to crawl into the body, during manufacture.
Sigmas tech boys were really good, and had the fox up and running within a few hours, which was quite impressive, as he'd even bought a dead rat along in his toolbox, for just such an occasion.
I've read other reviews of this lens, and thought I better add my own, as none of the others had mentioned a fox, which is what Sigma must have meant when they mentioned it was good for capturing wildlife.
I'm glad I bought it now, otherwise I'd had to have left the money to the kids, and their father, whoever he is.

Very large lens, as people are noting, but for a good reason.

To get a zoom that performs pin sharp at this range between 200mm and 500mm is amazing. You put the camera on the lens and place the lens on a sturdy tripod. It performs very well for what it does. It also has a matched 2x adaptor giving 400mm-1000mm at f5.6. Excellent for fixed position sports coverage.

Sigma's after sales is amazing too. I brought mine in to Sigma UK having had a problem with the doubler and they sorted it out very quickly and without fuss.

I would suggest professional or hire use for specific projects.

This is my workhorse / walking around lens. The 200mm to 500mm range is super practical. At only 15.6KG, it makes the perfect lens for getting great candid shots of people going about their daily lives.. from 1km away. The optics are first rate and the 2.8 aperture means I can shoot in low light, which means some fantastic night time shots... If you know what I mean ;) The only downside is selfless are really difficult as the minimum focusing distance is a massive 200cm. My arms aren't that long!! I get around this limitation by shooting into a mirror so I can capture all my priceless duck face moments.
