I think the last iteration of the 500 4.5 priced itself out of the market. $5k USD for f4.5 is really pushing it. I own that lens, but the pre DG version. I picked it up used last year, so for me the...

Thanks for the response, Mike.

Just as a follow up to close the open question of this thread, the lens works flawlessly with the 70D. Just in case anyone stables here looking for a resolution.

KC, it's probably habitual self deprecation. Too much Married With Children in my history, perhaps...thanks Al Bundy!

Anyone want to help this idiot with a wader ID?

Shot in Connecticut this morning. My gut tells me it's a Willet, or is it some sort of Sandpiper? I don't believe it's a Godwit because of the beak, or a Dowitcher because of my location. But I am so...

Frank, thank you for your response. Yes, it is the EX HSM, same as the current just without the newer DG coatings. And I believe you are correct that they are identical except for those coatings, the...

Sigma 500 4.5 EX / Canon EF body compatibility?

This is kind of a two part question, predicated on the desire to upgrade my old 20D. I'm curious to hear from Canon users (the few of you out there) what body you use for this lens. In my case it's...

I don't know if it uses the same glass, but I have a Kenko MC7 2x and the results are surprisingly good, even compared to the native lens without the TC. I do notice a drop in IQ when attached to my...

Hey, I'm not sure I would compare the two options you have listed. I think a 70-200 2.8+2x TC has a closer similarity to the 100-400. That said, I own the 70-200:4 non IS and have managed some pretty...

That stinks, Steve. I've heard great things about the optical quality of this lens. I hope that it is something that can be sorted out if you send it to Sigma.

Great comparo. Doesn't surprise me. The 70-200 4 non-IS is considered to be one of the sharpest 70-200 lenses made. Also look at how black those blacks are. Prime-like contrast. I love mine. Won't...

Thanks, Thomas. The combo is fun to use, for sure. Having a hand-holdable 1000mm lens with OS is remarkable when the conditions allow. I should add that all of those images are stopped down to ƒ8 at...

Well, on my 1D with a 1.3x I find the 70-200 L to be my favorite "walk around" portrait lens. 80mm is known as the classic length, but I find that to be a starting point for me, even for group shots....

Primeone makes some exceedingly valid points. The way I look at it: the Canon 400 5.6, Canon 100-400, and Siggy 150-500 are all stopgap lenses. Not a one of them will give you the results of lenses...
