I used to own the sigma 500mm f4.5 and sold it last month. Saving for a 600mm f4.
It is a very good lens that served me well.
It is not sharp at 4.5 but improves at 5.6 and is exe lent at f6.3
I used it with a sigma 1.4 and obtained very good results at F8

I used this lens for the best part of 14 years. Mine was a pre digital copy and I had the chip upgraded in japan to enable it to focus with the 1.4. as they do not normally af with the 1.4
Here are some samples taken with the lens.
