pic is not edited, it just demonstrates the bokeh.

yeah, uh, the bokeh, that's what I'm looking at when I look at this photo...  :P :P

i do own 2 sigma 200-500/2.8 - one canon mount, one nikon mount.  did do some test shoots "canon girl vs nikon girl" a while ago, but never did release it anywhere.  i'm located nearby frankfurt/germany, if somebody wants to use or test them, just email me to doug@world2media.net

Holy crap! Frankfurt? I might take you up on that offer, I live in Mainz so it's maybe a 45 minute drive. I would LOVE to test that beast with the 2x converter on the moon. Best I've done was the 100-400 with the converter, an additional 200mm would be really cool to see.
Canon 7D - Canon 50mm 1.8 - Canon 24-70mm 2.8 L - Canon 100-400mm 4.5-5.6 L IS - SIGMA 85mm 1.4 - SIGMA 150mm 2.8 OS Macro - SIGMA 10-20mm 3,5

I live in Kaiserslautern when I'm on my six-weeks off from work as a helicopter pilot.
Since you offered, can I borrow your Canon version for my next six-weeks at work.  It won't go far... I work in nearby Nigeria. Very secure there.. no crime or thefts!  :o :o I'll get it back to you in 45 days....maybe. Thanks for the free offer!!! ;D

Who here among us has a tripod that would support that thing?

How about a motorized tripod? Normally it carries a 12" telescope with the equivalent magnification of a 2200mm lens, but I suppose I could mount something smaller like SigZilla on it  :)
