SigZilla | 200-500 f/2.8

This is a field test from the Juza Nature Photography web site. It's definitely funny and cool at the same time.

Juza Conclusion
“Overall, the image quality is of Sigma 200-500 f/2.8 is good for such an extreme lens, even though it is far from easy to get the best from this lens: at f/2.8 the depth of field is very shallow, and the focus must be perfect…even an error of few centimeters may make the difference between a sharp photo and an out of focus photos.”

  1. This lens is on display here at Saturn Mönckebergstraße in Hamburg. Absolutely a beast. There’s a warning sign attached to it telling people to remember to reengage the tripod head lock after positioning it or something.

  2. Since it is intended for tripod mount, stabilization isn’t really necessary. However, unless your tripod is ine of the $3500 super heavy duty ones, it will probably shake.

    It has its own built-in li-on battery for power zoom, and AF.

    If there was a Sony Version, you would have IS.

    This ultra telephoto zoom lens offers a fast aperture of F2.8 at the 500mm focal length and F5.6 at the 1000mm. It covers widely used focal lengths from 200mm to 500mm and has a large aperture of F2.8 throughout the entire zoom range. This lens can be used to create amazing image expression with various types of photography such as astrophotography, portraits, wildlife, sports. SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass and three ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for all type of aberrations. The super multi-layer coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides high image quality from the extremely large aperture. The lens hood, designed exclusively for this lens, blocks out extraneous light. A 72mm filter can be inserted at the rear of the lens, and a circular polarizing filter can be used in situ thanks to the ingenious internal rotation mechanism. The dedicated Li-ion battery BP-21 is used to power the zooming and AF operation. This battery is built in the lens barrel. For the convenience of the photographer, focusing distances and focal lengths can be viewed on the lens` built-in LCD panel.

  3. I used the one at photokina, wasn’t impressed at all. It couldn’t compare to any Canon glass. I wouldn’t spend €1000 on one.

  4. Now if that was a Canon 200-400mm f2.8L I’d be interested. Taking it to 500 makes it too impractical.
