    I must admit I did not buy this monster of a lens – it came to me the old fashion way (no it wasn’t stolen) my parents purchased it for me – they have more disposable income than I. Well after having had it for a little while, there are a few things I have learned: 1. Don’t unleash this beast around other photographers or anyone else for that matter unless you are a total camera snob and are trying to compensate for certain inadequacies. 2. Use a monster tripod – this beast weighs over 100 lbs.. 3. Let the lens come to ambient temperature before using. 4. Do not use it for photographing ANYTHING from the deck of your home in San Francisco – unless you want your neighbors phoning SFPD complaining that you are a voyeur – SFPD was impressed with my photos of the Palace of Fine Arts and Alcatraz. Now I wanted this lens for nature photography – this is what I do for fun. Unfortunately, I think the lens is much too large and heavy to be transported with any ease other than hiring a Sherpa.

    The seller should state that this product is NOT designed to be strapped to a cat. Now I have to look elsewhere for a smaller cat friendly device and a replacement cat. Not to mention all of the hours I have to put into training the new cat for espionage.

    I bought this thing for shooting wildlife and it does so magnificently. The other reviews have highlighted the Sigma Cannon’s artillery prowess which is fine but it’s also a suburb high energy weapon. Sure, the raw power of the recoil hitting your solar plexus is something awesome but this does little for you if shooting wildlife means total destruction.

    By sliding the switch to atomic frequency (AF) mode the Sigma spits out a tingly blanket of high energy gamma rays. This mode is not as instantly gratifying as cannon mode, but if you have the patience to wait about 10 seconds you will notice less fur on every animal in a 5 mile cone. After thirty seconds you’ll have bagged enough animals to make wildlife stew for Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.

    I finally bagged my first bald eagle the other day with the Sigma Cannon in AF mode. Having been annoyed that these birds weren’t really bald like me, my Sigma did the trick and that particular eagle was bald for a few brief seconds before turning into a feathery mound of goo.

    Finance this.

    I live across a river from someone whose sole purpose in life appears to be tormenting me with the theme from “The Love Boat” played full blast at 4AM every morning. When I tried to retaliate by blasting the “Teletubbies” theme music back at him, he simply laughed and did naked somersaults into the water. Desperate, I even rowed across to his house bearing a gift of precious, delicious and creamy Tuscan Milk Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 Gallon, 128 fl oz in the hopes that he would sign a peace treaty (I had a couple left over from World War II). He chugged the milk down (who wouldn’t) and proceeded to eat the tattered pages of the peace accord! I was shocked. I even dressed in my most formal diplomatic outfit reserved only for high-ranking dignitaries – a 3 Wolf Moon shirt and Zubaz Pants!

    I rowed back to my place (actually a van bought from my buddy Matt Foley) and decided that the only way to deal with someone like this was with firepower. Good old American firepower. I needed something with kick that could lob a high-explosive shell across the river and teach my good neighbor a lesson. Now, normally I go to Bill’s Waffles and Army Surplus for all my paramilitary needs, but the recession hit him and he had to close up shop. Then I thought to myself… if Amazon sells the Badonkadonk tank JL421 Badonkadonk Land Cruiser/Tank then maybe, just maybe I can pick up some artillery there too!

    I was in luck. I originally wanted something like the M115 Howitzer 203mm caliber artillery gun. A quick search brought me to this SIGMA 200-500mm adjustable-caliber beauty, a bargain at $28,999.00 with free shipping! I had never heard of SIGMA before – must be a newer arms company. Anyway, I was impressed by the photo of this cannon being used in a handheld fashion! That meant huge savings on the Army truck I would have had to buy to tow it around. But that’s where the goodness ended…

    You see, no matter how hard I tried, I could not get this damned thing loaded with shells, much less fire the damn thing. I tried both the M106 and the MkI High Explosive rounds to no avail (those things are heavy!)… Adjusting the barrel did not help, either.

    Can someone tell me how they were able to load and fire the weapon?

    …. Love…. exciting and new…. come aboard…. we’re expecting YOOOOUUUUU!!

    By the way Amazon, it’s spelled “cannon”, not “canon”…

    Primarily I like to take moon shots, and all of my other equipment just hasn’t had provided the range I needed in order to nail the shot I was envisioning. The Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG seemed a little pricey, but I became obsessed with getting the shot I was after, so I decided to take the plunge and give the Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG a try.

    Now that I’ve had the chance to try it out, I can say that it performed better than expected. When launched from my Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG, my model rocket was able to obtain escape velocity and according to my latest calculations, should land on the surface of the moon early next month. The Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG is simply incredible.
