Some customer reviews of Sigma APO 150-500mm f5-6.3 DG HSM Lens (Sony Mount)

Most helpful reviews

Peter, Kingston upon Hull Keen Amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Haven't used it much yet, but very pleased with build quality and image sharpness. Grabbed some shots of the almost full moon and was really impressed. So much better than my cropped 70x300 Sigma images! Seems to autofocus faster on action shots. Overall a very nice lens. Feels solid and secure in your hand and the rear focussing ring is smooth and easy to use on manual.
Bad points:
Quite heavy but not unexpected due to the quality build, and probably advise a tripod as you would expect. Having said that good handheld shots can be had at higher shutter speeds.

Holger, Hertfordshire

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Best/only large tele at that price I could find.
Pictures taken are nice.
Bad points:
It's huge. The picture doesn't give the right impression. That lense alone is about the weight and bulk of the camera body and two lenses we already have.

Subsequently, you cannot just pop it in the bag when you go out. Taking it is a very conscious decision that will make you change your plans of where you go and how long you will carry all this stuff.

Harold, Wisbech Wildlife and Wedding Photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The optics on this lens are superb, right accross it's range, the build quality is excelent, it is mainly plastic, but has a real feel of quality, this is a great lens for wildlife photography. The performance is good right to full apperture.
Bad points:
The lens is heavier than I expected, but does come with it's own tripod mount.
There really is nothing bad to say about it.
