I was just looking at a Sigma 50-500mm before going out this afternoon. I have seen a lot of great shots with lens. At 65 oz / 4 pounds, I am not so sure I want or can swing that baby around all day.

This was handheld with a 70-300 (26oz) VR at 300mm, slight crop on the right side (just sky).

Tv (Shutter Speed)


Av (Aperture Value)


Exposure Compensation


Thanks for looking

Instead of buying the 500, you could get a 1.4tc. Your aperture speed would be a little slower and a little short focal length, but if you have lots of light, it would probably work just fine. Maybe the 170-500 Sigma would be better. It's lighter than the Bigma, and is supposed to be on par for IQ from what I've read. By the way, Nice BIF shot..cheers....Don
