The Sigma 50-500 looks quite exciting, especially its 500mm FL.

With its size, it requires the use of a tripod or some other support, right?

The WR of the DA*300 is certainly a good feature.

I have a monopod but don't use it. Once every few months. I've never shot with a tripod and this lens. You need good light for it. If I was shooting in lower light I would have to but everything I shoot tends to be moving around so this would not be the right lens.

Buy it, practice with it. You do need to learn it. The higher the shutter speed the better as well. I use the lens OS as I have found it to be more effective than the in body.

thanks for the tips
