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

How about a new rule:

If Lens Renteals wants to announce the availability of a new lens on canonrumors, they must provide a review to go with it.

And a review is something more than their little story about receiving it.

Great idea! I'll vote that one up.

Well whoopee! Now where is the 200-500 f/4 or, better yet, 200-500 f/2.8-4, something that would actually be useful and not a joke?

Hmmm...it might be about the same price to buy a ticket and fly out and borrow one for a week or two as renting one with shipping. Hmm....too bad I don't know anyone out there.

by the way:  the 200-500/2.8 with nikon mount is the only nikon lense i know, that can't be attached to a canon camera with an adapter ring.  this is why i have kept the canon version - otherwise i probaly would have just used the nikon version for both canon and nikon cameras.

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

they had one on photokina this year. it was connected to 5Dc. it produced some nice testshots for me. the zoom-by-wire is not fast though, it has a lot of glass to move inside that barrel! and the AF speed was also only okay-ish. definiteley not zippy. but again, we know why  8)
I guess it could be very nice for video work. any demo videos out there of it? 500mm f2.8 should get you a nice subject/background separation not seen on video before...

douglaurent, you should put these monsters on top of HeLaBa in Frankfurt and take cityshots at dusk/night...i think that would instantly deliver awesome pictures! greetings to nearby-frankfurt from frankfurt!!! :)

I'm very interested to see how this performs at 500mm f/2.8.

Because seriously, if you can afford the size, weight, and price of the Siglauncher, then you can just as easily afford the size, weight, and price of an EF 300/2.8, EF 400/2.8, EF 500/4, and a few backup bodies to make up for the lack of zoom...
Too much gear, too little space.

I'll assume this lens will fit the EOS M with the EF adapter?

haha, i doubt they would let me up there :-)  but with the included 2x extender and a cropped sensor camera you have a nice 1600mm/5.6 lense to play with, good for detectives!
