Sigma 150-500
« on: February 03, 2010, 05:23:44 PM »
Has anyone got or tried one of these on a Nikon ?? I use a D90 which is a dx so that will pump it up past 600mm not sure what the full range will be.. A 70-300 ends up at 450mm on a Dx.

Never used that one but do have the Bigma 50-500mm F4-6.3 and it's a cracking lens in good light. Because you have a dx camera the field of view is the same as a 750mm lens, but it will still only be 500mm at it's longest reach. Not sure on that lens but on my Bigma can use the Sigma 1.4 converter but manual focus only with the D3.  ;D
