Thanks, Karl,....your lens weighs in at 4.34# and the 150 is 3.92# so your thoughts are very helpful. I use a Sigma 18-250mm OS and love it. I know I could never enjoy hand holding a non OS 500mm lens.

Do you find the sharpness, color, etc similar to your 18-250mm?


The color and bokeh of the 50-500mm Sigma lens is very similar to the 18-250mm lens at comparable focal lengths. The 50-500mm lens appears to be slightly sharper between 50 and 250mm.

Handheld at 500mm
