Product Description

Style: Canon Digital DSLR Camera


Sigma's APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM is an advanced optical design of this 10x power high-performance zoom lens that covers the standard-to-super-telephoto range, now with the added advantage of Sigma's own Optical Stabilization which offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Sigma is the only one to offer OS for Sony and Pentax mount where the image is stabilized in the viewfinder if chosen.

For many photographers, having an "all-in-one" lens is an absolute dream. Especially for nature photographers, the idea of a lens suitable for landscape photography at the short end of the zoom range, while still having enough reach for wildlife is a great option. Add to that, the ability to close focus on small objects in the field such as flowers and it's the perfect backpackers' lens. Four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide optimum color correction & sharpness throughout the entire zoom range and super Multi-Layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting and assures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. With no need to change lenses, there is less chance of dirt or moisture entering the camera and fouling the imaging sensor.

The build quality is superb, the finishing is very nice and the entire lens feels very solid.
Oleg M
First and foremost I must confess I was very leery getting a Sigma lens as they are notorious for many years of faulty equipment and poor customer service.
Amazon Customer
Many shots I have taken using center focus, panning and continuous shooting mode, while shooting birds in flight.

Style Name: Nikon Digital DSLR Camera Verified Purchase
I have owned both of Sigma's 150-500 and 50-500. I shot with the 150-500 for almost a year. Both were mounted on a Nikon DSLR. I currently shoot with a Nikon D7000. I thought that the 150-500 was a very good lens. I decided to spend the extra money, and have the extra versatility of the 50mm range on this lens.

Both Lenses were adequately sharp, but I would have to agree with others who have commented, I really think that the 50-500 is the slightly sharper of the two. Teamed with my D7000, Color and contrast has also been very good.

After taking this lens to Alaska and shooting nearly 5,000 shots with it... I am truly impressed. Build quality is impressive & this lens has a solid feel in your hands. Most of my shots were free-hand of Eagles, Bears, and such... Only a few times was I disappointed in a shot, and they were ALL in very dark situations. A tribute to their OS, and a knowledge of what you can accomplish with it.

This lens IS my "walk around lens" I do most of my shooting outdoors. Birds, mammals, butterflies, or whatever catches my eye. I have also used this lens quite a bit with a 12mm extension ring for macro shots. Setting my f-stop to 14-20, I am able to get GOOD quality macro shots using this lens/extension tube combination.

I am truly a fan of the versatility this lens delivers. Literally from the moment I stepped off of the plane in Alaska, I began taking pictures of Windflowers & wild Foxglove. From there I backed off the zoom and took scenery pictures, and EVERYTHING in between. Sure a f1.8 50mm may have taken better scenery shots, but if you are like me, I HATE CHANGING LENSES, and the shots that I did get were completely acceptable.

Style Name: Canon Digital DSLR Camera Verified Purchase
Just received the lens. Using with a Cannon EOS XTi.

Pros
- Sturdy feel to the lens
- Impressive focal length range.
- Good picture quality throughout the range (speaking as a non-pro)
- OS pretty good. Taking acceptable quality hand-held shots at full extension in bright sun.

Cons
- Autofocus not working out-of-the-box. Of note that this lens was NOT in the serial number range specified by SIGMA's customer alert.
- Very poor response time on queries to SIGMA's tech service.
- Some (minor) vignetting noticable at longer focal lengths.
- Does not work with my TAMRON teleconverter even though this TC does function with my Cannon lens.
- Heavy

Returning the lense for replacement through AMAZON due to the autofocus issue. Will see how well the next one does.

UPDATE:
Received replacement lense from AMAZON with working autofocus. Took it out today for extensive testing and am well pleased so far. Focal range is impressive and am getting good shots throughout the range. OS function gives reasonable good shots even when hand held at 500MM. Normally use with a monopod however.

Tempted to upgrade my rating from 2 to 4 stars however will leave it at 3 for time being. Issues:
- Continued poor SIGMA customer service. My email requesting Tech assistance after first lens' failure is now 5 days old with no response from SIGMA. In same period I returned original lens to AMAZON, got a replacement and tested it (kudos to AMAZON Customer Service). Had similar poor response experience with SIGMA when I was originally researching the lens.
- Some residual caution about reliability of the autofocus function. Seems to be a fairly common issue with this lense.

Style Name: Nikon Digital DSLR Camera Verified Purchase
I've had this lens for a few days and am very pleased with it. Given the fact that it's covering such a wide range, I didn't expect it to have very high IQ, yet I am pleasantly surprised. I measured it against my super sharp Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII with TC-17, both @ 340mm f/6.3 and f/8, and the IQ is about the same on a D300s, even though on a full frame D3s, the 70-200mm + TC-17 is slightly sharper. This is quite remarkable, because 70-200 f/2.8 VRII is one of the best lenses Nikon has ever made, and it can produce better pictures at 100mm than the highly regarded Tokina 100mm macro lens I own, and even when shooting macros, the 70-200 + TC-17 + Canon 500D combo is comparable to the Tokina 100mm.

Image color is great, with vivid contrast. I had a few bird shots at fully extended 500mm and they turned out to be great pictures. CA is minimum too, only slightly visible when fully zoomed in, and no worse than my 70-200+1.7 combo. Focus is fast, even though it has always been a challenge for me when shooting sports and moving animals. Build is very solid. It's about the same length as the Nikon 70-200mm VRII without the hood, and about 20% wider. Maybe I am already used to the 70-200mm, this lens is not as heavy as I expected, maybe just a little heavier, and certainly handheldable. The OS certainly helps, and I can shoot handheld 500mm at 1/30sec with good image quality. The OS can be turned to 'off', '1', or '2'. When not shooting at high shutter speed, I used '1' only and I suppose '2' is for shooting from moving car on a bumpy road. I haven't tried manual focus yet. Zoom in and out is a little tight, and that might be the only negative I can find with this lens so far.
