A couple of snaps of THAT Sigma 200-500

Popped in to Park Camera's opening day last Sat and got the Sigma 50mm f1.4 I've mentioned in another post.

They had the only copy in the country on display and I was slightly surprised that folk weren't mobbing it.



Yes the 17mm fov has exaggerated the size but it is a beast

And round the back with a 30D



I didn't actually have a go as it had the 2X extender (400-1000mm f5.6 ) on and I doubt the closest focus was inside the showroom

Wow - now that is a beast! Looks more like some military weapon than a camera lens!

Re: A couple of snaps of THAT Sigma 200-500

If it had been the Nikon mount it would make a good impulse buy. Does the lens case have a belt loop

The only person I know who'd have the readies for that sort of purchase has a 'Sir' in front of his name.........

What no stabilisation? Must have been to save money. It only weighs about 35lbs should be nicely balanced and easy to handhold if it only had OS

I feel quite inadequate.

Nicely camouflaged for wildlife shooting but the 4X4 you would need to transport it to the site might scare the birds away!

Re: A couple of snaps of THAT Sigma 200-500

Oh, how I'd love to get my mitts on one of these... believe it or not, there's a shoot that'll be taking place sometime in July '09 for which this lens would be perfect; not that I'll be able to afford it by then (windfalls notwithstanding) but perhaps I could rent one or convince Sigma to loan a copy?

I reckon that's the lens Arnie would go for if he made Predator 4, the Paparazzi.....
