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: Build quality, sharpness, contrast, stabilizer...

Cons: don't have it

Opinion: After using Nikon lenses of the same focal length I wanted to make a clean change and I decided to take the sigma 500mm f4 sport, I used this lens both handheld and on tripod, handheld you can use it for a while but then you will have to find the support because the weight will be felt, With my Nikon D4S the autofocus was crazy, precise and quiet, as quality was really something incredible.

Pros: sharpness,autofocus build quality,multiplied 1.4x

Cons: nobody

Opinion: L"I used with D5 and the new nikon Z9 what to say is a fantastic lens, very sharp, autofocus very fast and precise, possibility to update the fimware and customization via usb dock, with the tc 1.4x does not lose anything and the autofocus remains velocissimo.il weight is considerable but it is normal for optics of this level, only flaw but this is a defect of all brands, you have to replace the bracket for the tripod that in my opinion I find embarrassing.
