Rhona AndersonI have one, disappointingly after a week the zoom rollers failed and it had to be sent back for repair, I find the zoom really stiff which does not make for quick shots

Heather GreenwayI have a Sigma 50-500 lens I use with my Pentax digital SLR cameras on my trips to the Kruger. I have used it for I can't remember how many years and have some beautiful wild life photographs. Pete Phillips

David NelsonGood shots for handheld. The lens is very heavy! I found it much easier to use mounted on a monopod.
