Is the Sigma 500/4.5 better than the Pentax 600/4?

I don't know about better, but it's certainly smaller and lighter

I doubt its better, but yes smaller and lighter and likely better then most lenses, I'd suggest one would require optical test equipment to tell the difference between the 2 lenses, ours eye probably won't see any difference.

You know you could just get a mirror lens!
They have 500mm, 800mm, 1000mm, and 1600mm!
(Oh... I see you have one!)
This is of course a joke. The F*600mm is a beauty!!!! Good luck. I hope it sells. You could pay off your mortgage!
