Re: Overpriced product - just buy Sigma 500/4.5

Bonjour Stephane,

i think you said it well and thank you for sharing your experience of the Sigma 500mm. I would certainly like to have that DA560mm to replace my Pentax-67 M*400mm/4. I would save around 1 pound and get 160mm more reach without using a TC-1.4X. Certainly better IQ, i nearly never use my 400mm at f/4 anyway because it's better stopped down to f/5.6. I would also have a Weather sealed long lens.

Like you the only drawback is the long MFD, sure i can always use an extension tube.
