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: Ultra Sharp, fast and customizable AF, excellent multiplied.

Cons: Maybe the stabilizer does not equal the ones more noble, but effective enough.

Opinion: I had both the Nikon 500 F4 FL, and previously the Canon 500 F4 ISII. This Sigma has nothing to envy to the other two.... In fact, regarding the AF I would say a step above considering the customizations etc... Really excellent even multiplied, perhaps, but I say maybe, the 500 ISII was a sharper Pelino only DUPLICATED, but I said perhaps (and probably depends on the duplicator, as smooth and multiplied to 1.4 is really exceptional, equal to or better than the other two). They Confirm what I have written the tests carried out by the only site that I personally find reliable and consistent with what I have been able to test in the field during my years of experience. Consider that my photos are almost always very croppate....

Pros: Construction ,, sharpness blurred brightness everything

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: After months of testing and photos, I can say I'm very happy to have bought it, because it is built very well, solid and with many features such as the ability to use the USB doc with various customizations from autofocus that works so well, I followed by subjects like the little flower or the ruler among the trees that are very fast ,, without any problem ,,, not to mention the stabilizer that works really well giving you the possibility to shoot at very low times that associated with the ,,, brightness Dell lens do yes that you can take home a shot even in bad light conditions .. I said this I confirm that it is a great alternative of excellent quality compared to 500 nikon that costs double ,,,,,, ah hhhh I forgot with the multiplier 1.4 loses a reactivity but the sharpness is the same giving you the opportunity to buy 200 mm that I think in avifauna make the difference to get closer to the subject, more work fine 810 with a bit9; crop and voila you will have excellent results ... I conclude by saying that I'm very happy to have bought it definitely worth all the money spent ,,, oh I forgot, the sigma gives you in addition a very useful backpack done very well for the goal where there is quietly also the camera body and various accessories, really cool because once I was convinced I had to spend another 200 euros for another backpack compliments Sigma ...

Pros: Quality of construction, sharpness, colors, blurry, lightness, AF.

Cons: Brace a little short

Opinion: A wonderful lens. I tried it in the sports (F1) and naturalistic (safari, mountain hunting) and gave me so much satisfaction. AF always excellent, excellent sharpness also in TA, very natural colors, creamy blur. Fully satisfied. Multiplied with 1.4 Sigma does not suffer from any quality loss, never tested with 2.0. A lens that Sigma adds to its latest excellence both in the S and Art series, since Nikonista must thank Sigma for having produced such high performance and quality, in no way second to Nikkor (in fact). Unique, physiological, I have made the micro-regulation AF for a light front-focus. Stubborn lens!
