I have read a few comments on the web that the Sigma 50-500 OS and even the 150-500 are as sharp as the new 80-400. I had the old non-AFS 80-400 and found it sharper (at 380mm) than either the old Bigma or the newer ones.

My wife uses the 50-500 OS and I have played with it at times and find that my number of keepers is quite low compared with my 70-200 + TC20EIII. I now have the new 80-400 on order but am concerned that it will be a letdown.

Have you compared it to any of the Sigmas?
