Sigma 150-500mm HSM OS or 50-500mm HSM OS???
Jan 22, 2013

I am in the market for a 500mm with OS to replace my Sigma 170-500mm DG. I am fairly happy with the sharpness of my copy, but would like something with OS and HSM so I could use it on my D5100 or my D800.

The 150-500mm Sigma is around $600 cheaper and I could live without the extra coverage down to 50mm.

There seems to be conflicting information as to whether the 150-500mm version is as sharp as the 50-500mm.

Has anybody made any direct comparisons between the two?
