    Ahhh thanks. A good resource. I'm still a little hesitant about getting this lense. Not sure if I should spend a bit more and go for the 170-500.

    I cannot comment on either of those lenses from personal experience, but I do own the Sigma 50-500 and the Sigma 17-70. Both are built excellent. The 50-500 is part of the EX line. Its built like a tank. I haven't gotten to totally explore this lens to find all its potentials and faults. From what I have used it for, it has performed very well with super fast focusing on both of my Canon bodies.

    On another note, the 170-500 takes 86mm filters, same as the Bigma 50-500. I own 1 86mm filter. Check the prices on quality 86mm filters and you'll see why. LOL

    I have the Sigma 100-300 F4 and the 50-150 f2.8

    They are both wonderful pieces of glass, but both are from the EX line -- Sigma's top-end. They are built like tanks. Another advantage of these is that you can use the EX series teleconverters with them (which I don't believe you can do with the 135-400). I found my 100-300 on ebay in mint condition for a bit over $500.
