Canon 7D Tips – Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 APO DG OS – First Look

I had a chance to test the new Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 APO DG OS yesterday in Times Square NYC.   There is a reason this lens is called “the Bigma” – it is BIG and carries a 10x magnification zoom!

Sigma just updated their successful lens by adding a fantastic lens-based image stabilization system that actually makes hand-held photography possible throughout the full range.  Just be prepared for the bicep workout – the lens is nearly 4.5 pounds and over 12-inches fully extended!  But, the new OS is top-notch.  Take a look at the following hand-held photos showing the full range of the lens.

I am hoping to take the Bigma birding this weekend … if the weather cooperates.  Look for more on this lens to come.
