Sigma Zoom Normal-Telephoto 50-500mm f/4-6.3 EX DG HSM

I see this is at b&h for sale but one one else seems to do it for olympus do any of you have any vies on this lense
I want it for sports mainly football. any feed back would be apreiated thank you

> I'm not sure if this lens has shipped yet, at least I have not seen any for sale (only for order). Personally, I'd prefer some stabilization at the longer end of the range, but if you are using a tripod it would be a great sports lens on bright days. f 6.3 is a bit dim, but at $1000 USD it seems to be a well-priced lens. I've used plenty of Sigma lenses on OM cameras in the past and I've found them to be worthy at their higher-end - I cannot wait to see how this lens works in practice on the 4/3 cameras.

Cheers! - marc
