I am amazed at the people who do not recommend Sigma 500mm F4.5 lens. I own it in Pentax mount and the lens is deadly sharp and very easy to handle. In Canon mount you get HSM, focus limiter. It will be tripod mount but still light and easy to handle. Used wow. A steal for sure. I owne the Canon 300 and will pick the Sigma over it and T.C.'s any day. I even find myself using it instead of the Canon 500. It is that good and that easy to handle.

Wow, that's some endorsement. I like the part about being deadly sharp. On Pentax you get IS, I believe. I might have to check into this lens. I'll have to search the net for some sample shots.

Thanks!
