Dave:

I notice you have both the Sigma APO400 and the Sigma 50-500. Your sample is from the Bigma. Is that your favorite long lens, and if so, why? (Not just curious, mind you, I'm getting geared up for something longer than the Sigma 70-300.) Thanks for your response.

Hi Clem

I got the 400 APO some years ago and have used it on all of my Pentax cameras. It is a lovely lens but on the K10D you need to use a tri-pod or mono-pod as it turns in to a 600mm Because it needs a good service I find the auto focus is slow and tends to hunt alot of the time. I also do a lot of motorsport photography and it can be a real pain having to change lenses if you dont have 2 digital bodies so I opted for the Bigma. very heavy lens and again tri / mono-pod required for sharp pictures. Nice all round lens and fast to focus with minimal hunting .

Hope this helps

Dave
