^^i think what your mainly dealing with is shooting closer subjects vs. shooting subjects that are farther away...closer shots will look better than the farther shots...

I am impress with alot of the images post on here and thinking about picking one up again. Had one of these a year or so again. Ended up selling it because I wasn't using it as much. There is alot of great photos on here.

Man, you guys are incredible. After a few days with this lens, it's definitely not easy getting a good shot out of it. Especially hand-held. And am I the only one that finds it easier to zoom when you just grab the front of the lens and push and pull it?

that's definitely how i've been using mine...i don't get why people wouldn't like the push pull of the 100-400L...it's a lot easier for me

It's so quick to change focal length.....football for example. As for dust, never had a problem in 6 years of heavy use.

Recent hand-held images from a Sigma 150-500mm OS lens.

The main challenge in using the Sigma 150-500mm hand-held was getting used to the weight. After a few days of sore wrists after using the unit, the weight became familiar and comfortable.

I almost always shoot on a monopod, with a pistol grip head when necessary. All the weight disappears.
