Dam, try this link -

Look for the links to galleries taken with this lens.
You can also open another page with archives in it.
I am also looking into getting one of these!

I have never used the lens, but I've seen many pictures from it. I'd search on pbase.com. I'm sure you'll find lots of pictures made with it.

I know we're in the Canon forum, but I read about both Canon and Nikon (10D vs. D100 research.) I've seen a fair amout of talk about this lens on the Nikon DSLR forum at dpreview.com. I'm sure if you search on 500 or 50-500 in that forum you'll find both pictures and talk. Many people like it, some people had problems with it (if it was quality control or a bad tripod was hard to tell. 500mm is a really long lens, after all.)

Default too heavy to lens suspend?

With the BigEd grip and 2 batts- would the cam be too heavy to suspend on the Sigma 50-500 via tripod? (using the tripod directly on the lens and having the camera body with no support other than it's lens mount)

I've never tired it, but I don't believe so. That is how it's designed to be used, after all. I mean, people put much heavier cameras than the 10D & and 50-500 on to a tripod using the lens' braket.

It would probably be overkill to get something like a Wimberley Sidekick... but that would be an alterative. I've heard nothing but good (nay, amazing) things about them (and if I ever get some big glass, that is exactly what I'll buy with it.)
