Hi, Just going to purchase this 150-500mm lens as taking a body swerve from Land/seascape photography to try my hand at bird photography. As this is a kind of test run for me I bought/buying 2nd hand although I have read some good reports on the lens I have also read some opposite views ( being a bit soft on the focus). I would like if possible some info on the best way to calibrate this lens? Now I no that there is the Sigma Dock but I also own a few Canon lenses so would there be a better option?
Thankyou,
Russ


Many Thanks,
Russell.

Russ,

I own the Sigma 150-500 lens. To my knowledge there is no Sigma docking station for this lens. I also am not aware if it is possible to calibrate the lens.

Maybe someone else can confirm what I am saying or tell me I am full of crap and there is a docking station and a way to calibrate the lens.

The sigma dock is for the 150-600mm lenses...this is a pretty old lens...it should be bought really cheaply just because of all the new offerings...it's a good lens if your budget is tiny, but you'd be way better off with something newer for not much money

Hi, thankyou for the replies. From looking around the net it seems that Reiken Focal will adjust the front/back focus issues if any. Would love to buy a more expensive lens but as this will be my first attempt at bird/wildlife photography the price I am buying the lens at is for me enough at this time. Thnakyou again, Russ


Many Thanks,
Russell.

If you have a camera that does af micro adjust you can adjust it yourself...if you dont, then the reikan focal is useless
