Re: handholding 500mm

Without dual IS such a long lens would be nearly impossible to hand hold. That makes a Sigma a long shot. However if you want such a lens today you can probably adapt one from a different mount.

In my film days I had a Samyang 100-500, 7.1 at the long end, but you really had to shoot at f8.  There was of course no stabilization.

Yes, I occasionally shot that handheld w 400 speed film.  No, results weren't stellar, but passable. (W the 2x added, I did need a tripod)
