Re: Advice needed on sigma 50-500

1. Sounds very expensive.

2. I see quite a few for sale on ebay and other sites.

3. Mine is Soft at 500mm. But versatile at lower end. I wouldn't buy it just for long reach.

4. Needs f8/f9 at 500mm

5. DA300 would give far better IQ even with crop.

6. My original 55-300 is much smaller, lighter and slightly better IQ plus the 300-500 extra is not great on the bigma.

7. Overall mine is parked in my shelf.

8. Only saving grace is pretty good auto focus.
