What are your thoughts on getting to the 500mm range ?

the sigma 50-500 gets to ~500mm for about $1600 ... see some sample pictures on flickr ...

the sx50 gets to ~1200mm equiv. for about $400 ... see some sample pictures on flickr ...
the fz200 gets to ~600mm equiv. with constant f/2.8 for subject isolation and/or low light for about $600 ... see some sample pictures on flickr ...
hope this helps ...
