Not that I have one yet, but apparently they're available.

It's big, it's heavy - post some samples so we can judge if the results are worthwhile!

Can't wait to see how this lens compares with the 150-500.

I'm subscribed to this thread with the hopes that someone will buy one and throw some images up. I'm really considering moving from the 150-500mm OS to the 50-500mm OS. If the IQ is good, the same or better than the 150-500mm OS, I'm probably gonna make the switch.


I'm all about the range, baby.

Hope it's good enough to prompt Canon to update the 100-400mm (after all, they even managed to improve the optical performance of the already-excellent 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM). Probably leave it at 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 and keep the 77mm filter size, but improve the sharpness, flare control, AF speed and IS, making it a lighter (and probably sharper) option with slightly less range compared with the Sigma.

If anyone is interested in buying this lens in the US, Abe's of Maine giving 10% off, with coupon code AALOYAL, plus another $10.00 off with FRIEND10, combine that with BING or Ebates and it's about $1400.00. That's still too expensive for my budget to switch from my Bigmos though...

I think the nicknames are a little goofed up because of the 150-500mm OS.

Technically, since the original 50-500mm was named the Bigma", the logical name for a Bigma with OS would be "Bigmos". The 150-500mm OS is a different lens, and requires a different nickname. It should never have been named the Bigmos. But at the time I guess it was the thing to do, because who knew they'd make a Bigma with OS.

+1 :D

I'm curious about this lens as well, and trying to decide on this vs the Dust Pump.

This thread has been useless so far, so I decided to audition one myself.

Stuck it on the XSi and took a picture of the first bird I saw :lol:. Hand held, shot in RAW, slight exposure adjustments, converted to jpegs in PSE8 without any sharpening.

Indoors, ISO 400 50mm, F6.3, 1/15
