Which is Bigma?

When people refer to the Bigma, which lens are they referring to? Obviously a Sigma, but the 50-500mm, or is it the 150-500mm, or some other monster?

BIGMA commonly refers to the 50-500.
I call my DG 170-500 the Lil'Bigma.
(That's a pun on Little Big Man, eh?)

Thanks. We are on 2nd gen Bigma now, right? So there is more than one variant out there.

The second variant of Bigma is BigmOS, for obvious reasons.

There is but one true Bigma, the 200-500mm f/2.8




Heh, in general I think it refers to any large Sigma lens.

I don't believe it does, but only because demand is so low. If you're interested, you might write to Sigma and see if they'll fit it with a K mount, for $26,000 they may be happy to customize it for you.
