Having tried the Canon 300mm f4, which reminded of a cylindrical biscuit tin with some glass attached, and given that all fast Canon telephoto lenses are sold out - and are now insanely expensive - I thought I'd give this a try.
My first impression was that it was unexpectedly well made. I did not expect it to be so rugged. My usual lens is a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 USM IS II and although this Sigma uses more plastic it is a nice tactile thing to hold. It's not that heavy. No heavier than the aforementioned Canon.
My first effort was in an evening and the f5.6 at 400mm was struggling to pick out darting swallows over a pond. ISO dropped to 1000 and the photos were poor. I thought my purchase had been a bad one.
However I tried the following day in good light and I got some great shots at shutter speeds of 1250 and 1600. ISO was maintained automatically at 160. Very nice.
Having 50-500mm is a fantastic range. 500mm is a bit shaky. I found I was moving between 100-400 mostly but 500mm is great for close-in shots.
In conclusion I'm glad I've broken my exclusive 'Canon lens' habit. I'm looking forward to the new fast Sigma constant f2.8 with OS.
If only Sigma did a 100-1000mm at f2 at an affordable price....
Note - I was using this lens with a Canon 7D body and the 8fps makes using this lens feel like an optical machine gun!
Great fun.
JP :)

Like most BIGMA owners my previous lens was a Canon 75-300mm and wanted to capture a closer shot. I took a lot of time trying to decide between this and the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM, I finally decided that the range this could cover and the reviews of the lens made my mind up. I have not regretted this from the day I took the first shots with it to the present day. This is a fantastic lens that can aslo be used as a walkabout lens. It is a heavy lens but a small investment into a Black Rapid RS-4 CLASSIC strap may it a comfortable lens to carry. I also invested into a wimberley sidekick for tripod mounting for wildlife shots. This a superb lens and although it is not a fast lens it does come up trumps for sharpness and performance when using in fast action shots, I know anyone who has one has not regretted the purchase and it is becoming very popular in the Military Air photography fraternity, which proves that it does a great job in these circumstances. 4 Stars awarded as for the weight issues which stopped it being 5

A lot of money but a lot of lens. It's heavy to carry but the extra zoom provides great opportunities otherwise missed. I'm still learning how to get the best from it, however I have found the autofocus to occasionally have a mind of its own which has proved a pain when panning at airshows. I have spoken to other owners since buying this lens and it seems a common gripe. To be fair though in the main I am more than happy with this purchase.

Very sharp lens and much cheaper than Canon. The autofocus is precise and the zoom lock is handy for keeping the lens retracted while carrying. Far sharper than the Sigma 150-500.

The Bigma, love it. A great compromise lense for amatueur photographers wanting to get close, very close. Capable of brilliant shots but in reality most of us wont provide the stability for precision sharpness. Recently taken to the Kalahari and obtained excellent close-ups.

Cons: Sadly poor weather sealing. I trip and significant dust inside the lense. I think the sad reality is unless you pay 10x the price of this Dust will be a problem (as it is apparrenly with the canon 100-400 IS). The reality is and large Zoom will suck in dust, servicing costs circa £130 so take that into account if you expect a long life. Heavy.

Pros: sooo much closer than ever before. As the other reviews say excellent sharpness 200-450, bit fuzzy upto 500 but still sharper than any other 3rd party 300mm lense I have at thier full zoom.
Very happy to have brought. Highly recommended.

Anyone needing a 500 mm. Lens has a limited choice unless they are loaded! This lens is quite heavy but that is inevitable. It woks well, focus is quick and cannot really fault it.

I've used this lens with a Canon 5Dmk3 & a 50D. The lens is heavier than the Canon 100-400 f4-5.6 lens but, as most of my use is from a hide the lens is usually mounted in some way or on a beanbag. If not in the hide, it's usually used with a monopod, which works well & the lens even gives good results hand held, photographing birds in flight. The AF is fast & seems accurate & the Optical Stablisation is very effective. The contrast of the glass is good, producing images with contrast which is better than that of the Canon 100-400f4-5.6 lens which I also use. The build quality is very good & it seems well made. All in all, barring to OS, it's very much like the non OS version which I had before.

This 'Bigma' with OS is currently my favourite lens for wildlife photography & it virtually lives on my camera (unless I'm travelling).
