Sigma 150-500mm - Minimum Focus Distance 7.22' (2.20 m), Magnification 0.19x, Maximum Reproduction Ratio 1:5, Elements/Groups 21/15, Diaphragm Blades 9, Filter Thread 86 mm, Dimensions (DxL) Approx. 3.7 x 9.9" (9.40 x 25.15 cm), Weight 4.19 lb (1.90 kg)

Sigma 50-500mm - Minimum Focus Distance 1.64' (49.99 cm), Magnification 0.32x, Maximum Reproduction Ratio 1:3 (the DA*300/4 has a Maximum Reproduction Ratio of 1:4), Elements/Groups 22/6, Diaphragm Blades 9, Filter Thread 95 mm, Dimensions (DxL) Approx. 4.1 x 8.6" (10.41 x 21.84 cm), Weight 4.33 lb (1.96 kg)

Some folks think that the Sigma 50-500mm is better at 500mm than the Sigma 150-500mm. IMO, from previous test I ran on both, they are about equal. I chose the Sigma 50-500mm because of it's wider range and it's reproduction ratio of 1:3.
