I went out today to test how the Sigma 50-500 would perform on the Cormorants as I sometimes missed the ability to zoom in and out on the other outings. Below are results of the day:

WOW!!!! I have heard a lot of mixed reviews on the ability of the Bigma to produce sharp images but these are great. Well done.

Ya, I second that WOW! Great range, detail, and color. The eyes really capture one's attention.

I always wondered about that lens, that first shot is amazing the detail of the feathers and the green eye from that range, again amazing shots.
