Pros: It covers the 24x36 mm well; once the fire has been calibrated, a good definition even at full aperture, especially at short focal lengths; compared to other objectives, relatively fast and quiet autofocus.

Cons: The zoom ring moves itself with the lens very inclined: the seller advised me to insert a rubber band near the ring; the back focus or the front focus differ greatly depending on the camera body, and to a lesser extent depending on the distance of the subject: for each machine I had to adopt a compromise value on the various distances.

Opinion: I bought this lens used, with Pentax attack, to be used on the K-1 or on the K-5 II s; for now I'm quite satisfied. It is possible to use freehand, provided that the stabilizer is activated on the body of the machine. The maximum effective brightness decreases rapidly as the focal length increases and 500 mm is not 6.3 but 6.7. It is inconvenient that the minimum focusing distance varies greatly depending on the focal length: from 1 meter to 50 mm to 3 meters to 500 mm.rnMy specimen is not DG HSM but APO DG, ie the autofocus is " cacciavitoso "; at least, however, the objective is apochromatic, to guarantee good quality.

Pros: 50 500 "opportunity compositional"

Cons: 50 500

Opinion: Really a lens, a kit ... I miss a bit, hunting and photographic composition a boon for the yield must be content with the branches behind the subject you could see a bit of astigmatism, sharpness variable on a distant subject not great, few crop so to speak. Even with small subjects, close to 5-6 metrii goes a little better, I would say is that I miss them for the "opportunity of composition." Motor usm not very fast indeed the old Sigma 80 400 non-motorized os was faster on my nikon bodies. Relatively heavy, 500mm! the handle is convenient for transportation, burst of obligation, the monopod .. well! Sold for 300 afs incomparable otticamene.

Pros: focal length, ring trappiede very solid and large, petal lens hood included, very sharp for a zoom range so wide - from 50 to 400mm defies the more famous canon 100-400

Cons: heavy weight (but logical given the type of lens) lack of stabilizatore (that has been discontinued and has been replaced by the new 50-500 os) TA sharpness is not the best, fast AF in unfavorable light conditions. 400 to 500mm sharpness drops a lot.

Opinion: My first super telephoto! I wanted to start doing a little photo hunt and not having the money for a canon 100-400 or 400 f5, 6 I opted for this which also has 100mm more. I just bought this lens and I have yet to try it all, but I can already say that I am very satisfied. Closing at f8 (when you can) and being careful at the time of security you can get images of a clarity that I never imagined. Massive construction, it is still part of the line EX sigma, you immediately feel the weight but feels solid in your hand without games even with the front lens extended to the maximum. The ring tripod with its handle is comfortable, you have a good grip when you need to move even if the weight of the lens combined with the 50D + BG begins to be felt, but nothing earth-shattering (no need to take it to be the cabinets behind ). Recommend the use of a monopod which greatly reduces the vibration also because the lens extends to the very maximum focal length and machine super dense now is shake them around the corner waiting for us, for this shot often a flurry instead of a single photo. The AF is pretty good, not to the levels of the canon but the subject in flight holds good especially with the central point does not miss a beat.
