Sports Photography is something I do a lot of and one of the problems I found was trying to get a telephoto lens with a enough reach without needing to re-mortgaging my house.
For sports photography and especially cricket this extra reach helped get better and more interesting shots without having to crop in.
Before buying the Sigma 150-500mm, which cost just over £850 at the time I saw lots of reviews that suggested the lens had issues with focusing something I have can honestly say I have not experienced.
In fact, the Sigma 150-500 has proven to be a very good entry level lens for sports photography where you want that extra reach.
Given the price the aperture is not all that great but with the cameras, I use it with, I am happy enough to increase the ISO right up to 2000 to keep the shutter moving fast enough to freeze the action.
Because I lose the read I have to think and choose my shots more carefully and wait for the action to come to me, normally close enough to fill a frame.
