Further readings for the Sigma 500mm F4 DG OS HSM S Canon
To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
Announced in September 2016, the Sigma 500mm f/4 DG HSM S (Sigma 500mm f/4) is a super-telephoto prime lens for professional sports, wildlife, and press photographers, and for paparazzi. Available in Sigma, Nikon, and Canon lens mounts, the Sigma 500mm f/4 has been designed specifically for use on full-frame DLSRs such as the EOS 5DS R. This review reports on the performance of the Canon mount version.
We’ve tested 130 lenses on Canon’s flagship camera, the full-frame 18-Mpix Canon EOS-1D X Mk II, covering focal lengths ranging from an incredibly wide 11mm up to a super-telephoto 600mm.
We’ve split the results between primes and zooms and then arranged them into three groups according to use. This equates to ultra-wide and wide-angle, standard, and telephoto to help you narrow down the best performer in each.
However, this time we’ve compared lenses from the perspective of the camera’s intended market — the photojournalist. While they’re not really any different from the next photographer when it comes to choosing focal length, there are some models that perhaps require further consideration.
