I am interested in the Bigma, 50-500 lens. It is the latest model with the silent wave motor and advanced focussing........APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM......are there likely to be any traps in acquiring such a lens.

Had a hold of a 150-500 HSM today, boy are they heavy! I assume the 50-500 will be a touch heavier.

I know the Nikon users who get involved in 'birding' like the lens a lot. A Manfroto monopad was suggested to aid supporting the lens. One was fitted, with a pistol grip, very impressive and not that dear.

Urgent suggestions welcomed.
