SIGMA 150-500mm F/5,6-6,3 APO DG OS HSM Monture SIGMA
This is an ultra-telephoto zoom lens that allows photographers to freely play with the ability of telephoto lenses to bring the subject closer and shorten perspective. It is equipped with Sigmaâs own Camera Shake Compensation OS (Optical Stabiliser) System, so handheld photography is worry-free. SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass is used for superior correction of chromatic aberrations, and the rear focusing system effectively corrects for fluctuation of aberration due to focusing. The lens is equipped with HSM for fast AF speeds and quiet shooting, and is capable of full-time manual focus override. It also accommodates optional APO Tele ConvertersSee all Product description

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The lens is very sturdily built and well finished with a large plastic hood. There is a lock at 150mm but I have had no problem with lens creep. I am still getting used to the manual focus ring being nearer the camera and the zoom being further away. Also the anti clockwise zoom is a little counter intuative and takes a bit of time to master. The image stabilisation appears to work well. One tip it is much easier to fit the camera onto the lens that try to fit the lens onto the camera (if that makes sense). It comes with a strong well made carrying case, and an extra strap to fit onto the tripod mount to carry it whilst attached to the camera.
I have only used it for a few days but it has produced some fantastic pictures of birds. I have seen some reviews saying that it is difficult to get sharp images at the 500mm end but I have taken some incredibly sharp images between 450 and 500mm - even through a glass window.
Generally the autofocus works well and does not hunt too much although it can be a little frustrating at times especially with birds like blue tits who move faster than the autofocus can handle. It is often easier to use manual focus sent up the shot and wait for the bird to fly into focus.
All in all I am very impressed with the quality and ability of this lens and what it can produce.
I've been using this lens on my Canon EOS40D for about three years.
When I first bought it I was pleased to see that there was a carrying case and strap included because I knew it would be a bit unwieldy to carry on the camera.
What I didn't realize was the quality of the lens was such that it would become my favourite go-to lens for just about every photography outing.
I have a battery grip that makes the rig even heavier but helps greatly as it does give you a much better hold of the camera and lens.
Using the tripod "foot" in the crook of my arm helps control the lens but unless you use a tripod then the autofocus and stabilization should be used. The autofocus system is quick to come into effect when the shutter release is pressed halfway and is excellent, plenty good enough for my needs.
A bonus with the EOS40D is that it is a 1.6 to 1 sensor ratio compared to a full 35mm frame size so the actual focal length that you get is 240-800.
This fits well with my Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM Lens and my Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM Lens.
So I am covered from 17mm to 800mm in three good quality Image Stabilized lenses.
I do find that the Sigma 150-500 are is the lens that I use and the Sigma stays attached all the time.
I could go on but the test that I apply to purchases of this magnitude is "would I buy it again". Having used it for a few years I'd have to say yes I would!
My only regret was that I had to part exchange the lens that came with the camera, a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM as I miss the ability to take macro shots.
First use was on the North Sea coast, usual British winter weather, blowing a gale and freezing cold. I fired off a few shots of some passing birdlife and got some good results, made even better by finding out that I'd forgotten to turn the image stabiliser on. It felt well balanced in use and I managed to hand hold the lens using the tripod mount to hold it steady. Focus was fast and silent and I'm looking forward to using the lens for some video work.
I've read some reports that comment on the softness of the image when zoomed to 500mm. To be honest the quality seemed good, better than I'd expected after reading some reviews. When turned on the image stabiliser made some interesting chunking noises which may be an issue if photographing some skitty wildlife, but if using a tripod then IS shouldn't really be a problem.
Only grumbles are minor. The zoom and focus ring are the opposite way round to Canons lenses but nothing that a little bit more use won't overcome. Other grumble is the strap which is cloth, I would love it to be neoprene to distribute the weight more effectively. Like I said minor grumbles that will be overcome when I practice more and put my hand in my cheapskate pocket!
Would I recommend this lens? Oh yes, whole heartedly.
