Re: Bigma 50-500

Was looking forward to getting it before the Super GT but it will be way after.

Re: Bigma 50-500

Had a chance to use this lens for a concert. The lighting was low and the lens being HEAVY, I had to mount it on a monopod.


ƒ/6.3, 1/250s, ISO1600, 500mm


ƒ/6.2, 228.0 mm, 1/160s ISO2500

Re: Bigma 50-500

Those look pretty good. You must have had decent lighting to get those exposures, even at ISO 1600!

Re: Bigma 50-500

Great shots! That lens is a bit of a challenge to use, isn't it?

Re: Bigma 50-500

It's a huge challenge. I am so used to shooting handheld that having a lens mounted on a monopod restricts the movement, also being a PDAF, it won't lock at low lights.

I am wondering how those birders shoot birds sitting inside trees and in the shadows

That ISO 1600 was the end when the whole stage was lighted up.

This was pretty dark. Brighten in post processing.


ƒ/6.2 228.0 mm 1/200s ISO 3200


ƒ/5.6 107.0 mm 1/160s ISO 4000

Very nice Henry. So what were they performing? Obviously Jesus's Crucifixion is part of it, but surely not "Jesus Christ Superstar", was it?

Re: Bigma 50-500

Since the subjects are not moving too much, you could try using manual focus. I am getting the fingers trained to use it with the magnified view, and for the right kind of subject it really helps.

Re: Bigma 50-500

Some of them are relatively still. Yes, I did manual focus with the peaking and magnifying assist. My recomposing was a tat slow. After a few tries, I gave up.
