Uite ca pana la urma s-a gasit si o explicatie pentru culoarea aleasa de Sigma pentru animalul din titlu. Obiectivul arata ca un echipament militar, iar pentru manevrarea acestuia este nevoie de antrenament similar.
Rezultatele pe care le-a scos Juza, un fotograf italian, ne arata ca Bigma chiar daca este un obiectiv extrem scoate rezultate superbe.
Overall, the image quality is of Sigma 200-500 f/2.8 is good for such an extreme lens, even though it is far from easy to get the best from this lens: at f/2.8 the depth of field is very shallow, and the focus must be perfect…even an error of few centimeters may make the difference between a sharp photo and an out of focus photos.
The AF is pretty good, it is fast both as 200-500 and even with the 2x extender, as 400-1000 f/5.6. I missed, instead, image stabilization: even tough this lens is made to be used on tripod, image stabilization would help a lot, even on a sturdy tripod there are still some small vibrations due the the great weight.
