    LOL, I read about that thing a while back (before it was released). Nice to see a review on it finally. It seems more trouble than it's worth though, like trying to carry around a piece of artillery. The way he seems to be struggling with it in every shot says it all. :lol:

    But I guess if you need f/2.8 at 500mm, it's your thing. Very cool, nonetheless.

    Damn already late April. I think I'll lose the bet of how many times this lens gets mentioned this year.

    Btw as a side note how stupid would you feel as the model in the photo. Talk about "it's not the size that matters" jeesh.

    Holy crap, that's hand-holdable?

    That's not even a Bigma anymore, so what would you call the thing? SigZilla? Sigmasaurus? SigFoot?

    :lol:

    ROFL!
    Now if carrying THAT lens around doesn't put you in shape, nothing will!

    I love that one comment... "when bringing up the camera to the eye with this lens, one has to be very careful... the recoil could poke out an eye" :lol:

    It weighs 35 lbs and comes with a 2X TC. I bet Uncle Sam has bought a couple, 3 of them.
