The Sigma 150-500 looks good. How are you finding your new lens?

Purple Heron (not sure why they call it that ... nothing was purple on this bird) ... also known as Ardea purpurea.
Image made with D7100 + 150-500 OS at 500mm, f/8, 1/1000sec, ISO 400 (this image is part of the first shoot with the my new Sigma 150-500mm OS lens I had received last Saturday)

That's a great shot Rienzphotoz. Well done Sir.
Thank you for the kind words.

The Sigma 10-500 looks good. How are you finding your new lens?
This is my second Sigma 150-500 OS ... the first is Canon mount (which I still have) and this new one is for the Nikon mount. This lens has to be stopped down to f/8 or smaller to get sharp pics, so it is meant only for daylight shoots ... I bought it only for bird photography, something that I only do during sufficient bright light ... for $908 (which is what I paid for this lens) I do not know of any lens that can reach 500mm with stabilization .... so, I'm pretty happy with it. Several years ago I did own the Bigma 50-500mm (non OS version) ... this newer Sigma 150-500 Os is a lot sharper. Also, this lens came with the newer (front/rear) lens caps (which they use for the ART series), they are of very good quality, far superior than what Canon and Nikon dish out.

My 3 week old new 5D3 couldn't be fixed here, so it's back to Canon in Irvine, CA. Hope they can repair it.

Took these Moorhen shots 2 days ago with the 5D3 (downloaded with card reader) and 100-400L @ 400mm. F/6.3, 1/320s, ISO 2500 and 6400, handheld.
