I know - 2kg plus. You manage to handhold this? I guess if I purchase it, I will couple it with a mono.

i dun think handholding is possible. its even heavier than the 100-400L. my test shot was done mounted on a sturdy tripod.

maybe handholding the lens is possible if the sun is bright enough.

Ah Lau, invite u a trip to JBP, just u and me, with Sigma glasses, how? :D

Even can take the same cab since your home is 5 minutes to mine now. :p

Seriously, I'll get hold of u one day, wanna have a try with 120-300 and 1D, as well as the performance of 50-500 on 1D.

in case anyone is interested in how this lens performs at 300mm f2.8, here is an example:

mylau : can you repost the test shot ? Seems to be deleted from pbase.

Quite interested in the lens. could be a cheaper way to get to 600mm
