Sigma 150-500 versus the 50-500
Apr 25, 2014

I'd like to hear any thoughts you Sigmatons might have about how these two Sigma lenses compare.  I've used the 50-500 for years, both the OS and non-OS versions, and I just recently bought a 150-500 OS for a Nikon, but I haven't had it long enough to compare the results of the two.

I've read some comments in the forums saying the 150-500 was a bit sharper than the 50-500, but since I'm using the two of them on two different systems, any comparison I make won't really mean much.  Has anyone used both models on the same camera system?
