I'm thinking about getting a Sigma 500mm OS HSM. Does anyone use one and are you satisfied with it?

Thanks

Fred,

I have the Sigma 150-500 F6.3. I get great photos with it, but a little slow in low light but still a very good lens. About 5weeks ago I was able to purchase a used Sigma 500 f 4.5! This lens costs alot & is very heavy but I am getting very sharp photos. As far as Sigma lens for pentax mount they work great for me. Another Sigma I have & is a very good lens is the 300 F2.8. Put the 1.4 tele extender on it & you have a 420mm f 3.2!

Let me know what you decide to go with.

Regards,

Kim LeBlanc

Thanks Rick and Kim,

Well I pulled the trigger on a 50-500mm OS HSM and 1.4X converter, I'll have to use manual focus with the converter.

I bought an older 170-500mm Sigma that I wasn't at all happy with a few yrs ago so I was a little shaky on Sigma. Wish me luck :} Sure would have liked to have gotten a Nikkor lens but $8000 was a little salty.

We'll be heading to Pt. Mouille next week and it should be here in time. So it won't take long to find out how I like it.

Thanks again,

Fred
