Pros The image quality is outstanding..
Cons The focus gear problem is so bad. I believe a class action lawsuit is warranted
Recommended it? No

Unless you use this lens only once or twice a year , the cheap plastic gears will strip.  Sigma repair service is horrible.That repair will be a temporary solution. It WILL break again. Mine broke once a year every year for 4 years.And my freinds broke after one month. Read full review »

Sigma 50-500mm for Nikon

Pros Relatively sharp for the price.
Cons See review body.
Recommended it? No

I purchased this lens for wildlife photography and found it sharp although a tad heavy to handhold (I either used a mono or tripod). I sent the lens to Sigma for an upgrade for the D200. They informed me of impact damage. Unless it was damaged in transit I did not have any problems with the lens... Read full review »

Pros optical quality quiet focus motor durable construction focal range tripod mount doubles...
Cons filter cost slow lens F4-6.3 a sturdy tripod is almost required bulkiness of lens
Recommended it? Yes

The Sigma 50-500 mm lens is a very good lens. It has the ability to take a person through a large focal range, its main attracting point. The lens is large, 86 mm filter size and constructed out of durable materials. These features are the reason it weighs 4.1 pounds. It has become the main... Read full review »

Pros Price, Metal build, Fast AF & Crisp Quality Lens!
Cons Weight (for some)
Recommended it? Yes

I have a Fuji S2 and Nikon D1X digital SLR cameras. I am not a professional photographer (in that I dont make a living of my shooting). I do take the entire process including my equipment selection, technique and post-production work very seriously. When I was in the market for a good all-around... Read full review »

Pros It is the pro: you are the pro!
Cons HEAVY like non other: but quality!

A Leviathan among the lenses

Pros versatility, price
Cons optical quality may not be high enough to shoot very sharp slides
Recommended it? Yes

Sigma 50-500mm EX is a relatively new addition to the Sigma EX family. So far, I haven't heard too many reports concerning its reliability and performance. However, I think it is an interesting lens in terms of versatility and image quality. Let's point at the positive things first.

Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 APO DG OS HSM Lens Kit,for Nikon SLR with Tiffen 86mm UV Filter, Lens Cap Lea

New Sigma APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM. This is a 10x high zoom ratio ultra telephoto zoom lens incorporating Sigma's original Optical Stabilizer function. This lens covers a wide range of focal lengths from 50mm to 500mm ultra telephoto. The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction of color aberration. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghost and ensures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. This lens has a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1 (at the focal length of 200mm) making it ideal for close-up photography. This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), ensuring quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. The addition of the optional 1.4x EX DG or 2x EX DG APO Tele Converters produce a 70-700mm F6.3-8 or a 100-1000mm F9-12.6 MF zoom lens respectively. This lens is equipped with a Petal-type hood to block out extraneous light. The filter size of this lens is 95mm and the lens is supplied with a step down ring enabling digital cameras with an APS-C size image sensor to use an 86mm filter. *For Nikon and Canon mounts, Optical Stabilizer (OS) function will not work with film SLR cameras except Nikon F6 and Canon EOS-1V. *It is not possible to use a Polarizing filter with the step down ring. If you attach a Polarizing filter, you may not be able to remove it from the lens again.
