Sigma has put the lens on there site: APO 200-500mm F2.8/400-1000mm EX DG. Quite a heavy lens, 15.7 kg or 553.7 oz. To bad it's not available for Sony :D .

for sure. if there was any photographic equivalent of 'mid life crisis' or 'he must be compensating for something..' that lens is it.

Do you take off the lens or do you take of the camera when changing lens?

I could just sit in my porch swing, and capture wildlife...that would be awesome, wouldn't have to go sneeking quietly, and might actually be able to capture that herd of deer in my meadow. I wouldn't care if it was heavy, only if it could get the job done! They do make the Sigma Bigma 50-500 for Sony, and that would be a good start.

Well some of the photography (for me at least) is moving around and getting some new angles. So sittin in the porch swing wouldn't really be me :P (Well sometimes when i'm just tired it would)
But i'd sure love to try out the lens. And own it.

Can you imagine if you got a Nikon D40 attach with SIGMA 200 500 f2.8 the lens itself is way too HUGE & Often look alike an Atomic bomb & what happen the lens drop from the table & hit the ground badly :shock:

Do you think there will be a lens 9-1200 mm with constant f1.0 ? ( Just Dreaming ) wondering how it look like ?
