Quote: Am hoping to by this lens in the next couple of days, have seen it on camerabox. Has anyone had any dealings with this online store.
I brought my Canon EF 70-200mm f4L USM from Camerabox with no problems at all. I searched epz and found that other people had also used them with no problems.

Also worth considering the Sigma 120-300 F2.8 with a 1.4 or 2x extender, 420mm @ F4, 600mm @ F5.6
personally the sigma bigma is EXCELLENT.my folio has some recent shots taken with it. in fact it rarely leaves my camera now
Notice there are a few on fleabay at the moment.
I'm planning on buying the Bigma but not sure if it will fit in my backpack, can anyone tell me the length of this lens when it's retracted? i appreciate any help you can give me.
240mm long x 110mm dia to clear the lenshood. 160mm at its widest including the tripod mount. Weight 2.19kg.
aafter measuring mine i concur
i was in the same predicament a few weeks back but opted for the sigma 150-500mm and IMO its brilliant.........!!
Thanks for your help, yeah "Urdygurdy" I'm trying to decide between the bigma or the 150-500 mm. Both have great reviews. Decisions / Decisions.. ha,ha,ha,haha,aha......looks like both lenses will fit in my backpack. thanks again everyone
I decided to get the Sigma 150 - 500 due to the fact that it has OS (Optical Stabilization) whereas the Bigma does not. I know I will still have to use a tripod in most situations, but there will be times where i want to take a quick shot, and I think the OS will help me alot.
I have owned a Bigma, the most well built lens I have ever come across, it is heavy at almost 4.5 pounds, and is definitely a tripod lens (useless handheld). Good image quality, but I replaced it with a Canon EF 100-400mm IS USM L series and found even better image quality. Not knocking the Sigma Bigma though...............Martin
