Pros: Sharpness- even at long distance. Great colors. Price. Lens hood. Min. focus distance is class leading.

Cons: Tripod foot.

Opinion: Used this lens (Canon EF mount) for 2 years with Canon 5D markIV and Fujifilm X-T3 (Fringer Pro2 adapter) and always Sigma 4001 x 1.4 converter. Shooting from the same place and the same the objects (Northern gannets birds at about 250 meters in heavy, stormy conditions and Canon 5D IV, the picture quality very similar to other shooters using Nikon 600/4 VR and Canon 600/4 II without converters. With the X-T3 body I think there is even a slight edge in overall picture quality over Nikon 600/FL with D500 and Canons 600/4 II with 1 DX II. (cropped images) Of course there is a lot of other circumstances around. Since 20 years i always use the excellent Vinten professional Vision 10 tripod and fluid head modified and wood stiffened. Weights almost 10 kg and has even a camera body support rig included to avoid any movement or mechanical stress to lens connections.

Pros: Outstanding Image Quality - Excellent Build Quality - Price, when compared to the Nikon and Canon equivalents.

Cons: Tripod Foot - The tightening nut on the tripod ring occasionally jams but releases after a firm turn.

Opinion: Outstanding image quality.Straight out of the box I found the lens was severely front focusing, this issue was remedied after purchasing the Sigma dock which soon sorted the problem out. The tightening nut on the tripod ring occasionally jams on my lens but releases after a firm turn. Compared to the Nikon and Canon equivalent this lens represents amazing value. Thoroughly recommend this excellent lens.

Pros: Build Quality. AF Speed. Color contrast. Bokeh. Sharpness. Weight is well balanced. Adjust-ability on the Sigma Dock. Price compared to the Nikon equivalent.

Cons: As mentioned by others, tripod foot too short though all professional lenses whether OEM or third party should come with a sufficient arca swiss compatible tripod foot.

Opinion: Have previously shot with the Nikon 500mm F4G. The Nikon is a great lens and from what I have seen, so is the Nikon 500mm F4E. So, this is not to say the Sigma is better than the Nikon versions. What I would say is the Sigma is as good from shooting and from viewing images of the Nikon versions and much cheaper than the new version of the Nikon and the same as second hand for the previous version. Time will tell if construction of the Sigma is as good as the Nikon. So far, the Sigma is a fantastic third party option to the OEM versions and the best Sigma lens I have shot with by far!

Pros: Construction quality, autofocus and sharpness

Cons: At the moment no one

Opinion: I've had this lens for about 10 days, so a real opinion at the moment is too early to give it. Used only twice, one from a mobile shed with tripod + gimbal and one out in the mountains with a free hand, certainly to be noted its sharpness, amazing. Purchased used by famous physical store, compared to the Zoom Tamron 150-600 G2 there is no comparison, especially for the same focal length... the Tamron after 500mm lost in sharpness. Certainly the freehand weight is felt, but this is a feature that is known at the time of purchase and to be budgeted. Weight however well balanced and the various features available allow you to customize it to your liking (some i probably will never need to use them). Optical qualities and construction materials from top of the range, starting from the carbon lampshed. I didn't consider the Nikon 500 FL consideration, simply because it was out of budget for my chances. I asked the store "in advance" for autofocus calibration on my D500, for safety and to avoid having to carry it out independently, so I can not tell you if /how present the f/b focus was on the lens. I will certainly update the evaluation in the coming months, once the objective has been used a few times.

Pros: excellent sharpness, autofocus and build quality

Cons: undetected despite my pickyness in the tests

Opinion: In doubt in choosing between the 500 Fl Nikon and the 500 Sigma Sport, I was lucky enough to try them both on many occasions, finally opting for the purchase of the second telephoto lens without repentance. Almost identical in the weight and distribution of it, in view of the price-quality ratio, Sigma dominates the Nikon product and not by a little. Impeccable autofocus and very, very sensitive... Associated with 1.4x there is no decay of the image, despite my always present prejudices towards focal multipliers. Very fast in the transition from Af to manual focus, probably in the hypersonic engine of yamaki's house there is a lot and still a lot of high quality technology. The bracket allows a correct rotation on 90 degrees thanks to the presence of a retainer that can be disengaged by operating an unlocking lever (absent in Nikon). The magnesium alloy barrel is of excellent workmanship to say the least, the light screen in rigorous carbon fiber and the optical scheme includes two elements in Fld glass and one Sld (total absence of spherical and chromatic axial aberration) where fld means Fluorite, whose well-known characteristics allow a very low dispersion. The optical stabilizer with accelerometer can be used in two modes, one that allows a certain "generic photography" and a second more oriented towards bird life and sports (in this second function the algorithm used by Sigma allows to work on horizontal, vertical and diagonal axes with unthinkable results). Finally, to add that to the purchase of this magnificent product, there is in the kit a backpack that allows its transport even with mounted machine body. I think it is useless to emphasize how much the Japanese company has been able to do achieving in my opinion a quality equal if not superior to the most branded Canon and Nikon brands. Not forgetting that the latter cost twice as much...
