Sigma 170-500 Zoom Lense opinions

i seen a Sigma 170-500 Zoom Lense for sale second hand. the person is looking 400 euro for this. i will put what he says about it up...''Used Sigma 170-500 5-6.3 APO but is chipped for Canon Digital, so no error 99 readings.'' Just looking for some opinions on this. does a chipped lense for another camera work ok and how much extra of a zoom would i notice to my 70 - 300. Sorry if the question sounds stupid but i dont know anything about lense's. Any opinion's would be of great help

I can't answer about the chipping. You will certainly notice a difference with the extra 200mm but don't forget it's max aperture is f5 so you'll probably need a lot of good light and a good tripod. HTH.

It is a very good lens, be warned even with a tripod,from my experience, unless your camera has a mirror lock up facility you will have difficulty is getting a sharp image.
