I think that is one of the lenses recently reviewed at Lensrentals. Worth a read.

Heya,

Looking for telephoto?

The 50-500 Sigma is the sharper of the Sigma 500's.
The new Tamron 600mm is a big contender worth looking into.
Canon's 400mm is a staple, but costly too.

All of which you can also play around with a Kenko PRO 300 series 1.4 converter.

Very best,

Yep. If you're considering the 50-500, might as well check out the Tamron 150-600. I'll be pulling that trigger shortly.

Do you mean Sigma 150-500 because Tamron doesn't make a lens with that focal length range.

Tamron 150-600 is tempting for sure.
