And despite the age of these "film era" lenses, they are still very usable on modern DSLR bodies giving extremely good image quality and very fast AF.

I would choose EF 500 4.5L over Sigma 500 4.5..

Most of my EOS collection is from the "film era" and they work just fine, sometimes better than my newer L glass. Though much shorter FL than the 500 4.5, there's nothing wrong with using them. They were built to last and many of the "lower-end" film era lenses are optically superior to Canon's latest consumer offerings, see the original 28-70 f3.5-4.5 kit lens from 1987, whose MTF chart is only bested by the 28-70L and just barely.

Is it this one? 500mm. 4.5 L. from 1991

No that is the FD version. This requires an adaptor and is MF only.

I always found it best to stop down 2/3, at 4.5 mine showed a little blurriness but was great at f5.6.

Bump. At a $3k going rate it seems this lens is a good deal?
