Summering: Arrived well packaged and all correct as described. This is a weighty lens, but with the straps fitted correctly carrying is not a problem, I am not as young as I'd like to be but have found even at an early stage I can take excellent images on full 500mm hand held with surprising ease. Good light which is mentioned in other reviews is clearly a must, but to be expected. Build quality, at this early stage appears excellent.
Summering: Fantastische!!!! Great build quality, little heavy but what do you expect from such a powerful piece of kit. Chose this over Canon alternatives for my EOS - its a great contender in quality and great value for money over the competition and obvious manufacturer. Would recommend!!!
Summering: Wer ein einigermaßen preisgünstiges 500er Tele sucht und auf Stabi verzichtern kann - mit dieser Brennweite fotografiert man ja sowieso nur mit Stativ, also, was brauch ich einen Stabilisator? - der sollte zugreifen. Die Sigmas sind ein Drittel bis 50 % billiger als die Pendants von Canon bzw. Nikon, von der Bildqualität her aber absolut vergleichbar. Die Qualität der Fassung und der Linsen ist absolut professionell, die Bildqualität sucht ihresgleichen.
Summering: I've used this lens with a Canon 5Dmk3 & a 50D. The lens is heavier than the Canon 100-400 f4-5.6 lens but, as most of my use is from a hide the lens is usually mounted in some way or on a beanbag. If not in the hide, it's usually used with a monopod, which works well & the lens even gives good results hand held, photographing birds in flight. The AF is fast & seems accurate & the Optical Stablisation is very effective.
Utdrag: OK, so it is not the Canon f4.L lens, but it is less than 1/2 the cost. I use this lens to shoot wildlife, mainly BIF. Tracking with this lens took a while to get use to because of its size and weight. Now that I have used it for a while I love it! The difference in the aperture is so little it basically makes no difference. It is a great lens for the money, and it handles a 1.4X TC very well, making it a 700mm lens. In fact, I hardly ever take the TC off of it.
