These serious about 500mm focal length may also be interested in Sigma's 500 mm telephoto lens Online Photo Album Prime Minister, but £ 3850 it represents a huge price increase.

Not one of the major camera manufacturers to zoom now covers the focal length of 500mm. Canon's popular 100 400mm lens f/4-5.6L IS USM is Canon to the optic nerve recently. It costs about £ 1,270 and have the image stabilizer and ultrasonic focus motor. Canon 500 mm f/4L IS USM lens is a very, very serious place, the same price of about £ 5,550 serious.

Sigma 150 - 500mm of f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM: Performance
This review, the lens is a test to 12MP Nikon D700 to use Imatest.
150 mm, the lens performance is impressive. The framework of the sharpness is very good at all aperture. Peak performance in the focal length is f/11, but both here and in maximum aperture for sharpness differences are very minor.
Since the lens magnification, the resolution began to decline a bit.HP PP2100 Battery, 200 mmCanon ixus130The middle solution is still good, but the quality has dropped close to the edge, but it is still acceptable performance. As the focal length lens stopped at the edge of the framework to improve the quality, close to a good start from the f/11 resolution level.
Finally, 500 mm, the resolution of the lens decreased, but the result is acceptable to the maximum aperture.
Resolution in the 150 mm
150 mm and 250 mm of color, is at an acceptable level, Imatest records covering more than half the color stripe pixel width of 150 mm. This level should not cause the normal shooting conditions, many of the problems. However, when the lens zoom to 500 mm, the increase in the level of color aberration, will be evident in high contrast situations, may need to revised the level of image editing software.
Color in the 150 mm
For such a mild maximum aperture lens, the angle of light attenuation level is a bit disappointing.Canon IXUS210150 mm and F / 5 of the dark corners of the station was 1.6 vignetting the image center, which is almost constant level throughout the zoom range. In order to achieve uniform illumination, the lens to stop down to f/11.
150 mm, very good distortion control.HP HSTNN-UB02 Battery, HP DP390A Battery, HP PP2100 Battery, HP Presario R3000 Battery Imatest recorded only 0.536%, pincushion distortion, which is almost obvious in most applications. 500 mm pincushion distortion levels increase 1.05%, although this may be it is a more compelling level, should not pose too much of a photography problem is that most users would do the scene.
Intensity point source, will not cause the image more than Halo,HP Presario R3000 Battery but I did not notice the result of light captured in a relative loss, especially in the 500mm end. Lens Hood provided by external light shielding done great work from the front element to reduce the effect of external light source frame images taken on the shot.
