I have been looking for this lens as a present for the wife for Xmas as she wanted something bigger than her existing lenses for bird photography. Having researched this lens, the sport version of it, and the Nikkor 200-500 lens I was swayed to this one because it is lighter than the others and gets good reviews. The other reason for choosing this one is because you can fine tune it to any camera to get pin sharp pictures by dialling in 16 different settings and upgrade the firmware using the USB dock (which I have ordered as well).

The Gumph:
The SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary is designed to achieve a lightweight and compact construction for higher usability with similar specifications to the "Sports" version of the same lens, but in a smaller, lighter design. It has put a special emphasis on its optical performance by incorporation of 1 FLD and 3 SLD glass elements, optimisation of lens power distribution and minimised chromatic aberration of magnification. It is dust and splash proof and features a detachable tripod socket for more convenient handheld photography.

The same focal ranges for different purposes. The first hyper-telephoto zoom lens from the Sigma Contemporary line for better usability.



OVERVIEW
• Dust-proof
• Splash-proof
• Zoom lock at every focus distance
• Water and oil repellent coating
• Manual-override switch
• Quiet, fast AF
• Lightweight and compact
• Minimised chromatic aberration
• Hyper-telephoto
• More portable and useable

Best price I can find it for elsewhere is £788 - so this is an £89 saving - nearly pays for the filter!

Just ordered it and the USB dock, and with free postage it came to £738.99. Had confirmation email already.

I’d wait till Friday, I know there’s gonna be a better deal at Carmarthencameras

Want the sport on canon. They had a great deal on Amazon.it last year but I missed it.

Yeah remember that, not sure they honoured it though...

I think the weight issue for the sport turned me off - I just know the wife would not be enamoured with the weight of it when using it handheld. 2.8kg as opposed to 1.9kg is a big difference. Plus it is £500 more expensive - I don't love her that much! LOL

We all live in hope!

So nearly bought this from eBay last Sunday
Wilkinsons £699.00
Quidco 10% on any purchase (max £50.00)
699 - 50 = £649.0

"out of your minds" does not cover it.
