    my hubby has a Canon 10D and 2 Sigma lenses (28-135mm & 15-30mm) ... he said, using a 50-500mm lens is questionable because the lens construction for this huge range will affect the image quality for the worst ... depending on what u want to photograph, he suggest to look into maybe two or three different lenses to cover this range. also, keep in mind that the 10D has a zoom factor of x1.6, meaning a 50mm lens will act like a 80mm lens.

    .. if ur looking for quality, go with separate lens
