    Iguana's have made established colonies of breeding groups throughout the canals of South Florida.....armed with a Sony A7II and Sigma 50-500 Minolta AF mount lens with the Sony LA-EA4 adapter, I was able to capture many images of invasive iguana's around the canals of Coral Springs, Florida....here are just a few of the captures. DSC01915. DSC01916. DSC01919. DSC01922. DSC01936. DSC01938. DSC01948. DSC01952. DSC01955.

    Thanks guys- the Sigma 50-500 is so versatile with that focal range, basically any shot you'd want to capture is possible.

    Great captures! 50-500 covers a long range. I used with m43 for the birds... It is too bad Sigma hasn't introduced the 600mm zooms in Sony mount...

    I'm really hoping Sigma makes this lens or 600mm version in FE mount.

    Surprisingly the 170-500 version is nearly identically sharp at 500mm.... DSC01999. DSC02062.

    I got very lucky with both of the 500mm lenses I have- both are sharp at 500mm which hasn't been the case in the past with other samples of these lenses (I've owned a few of these lenses in the past.)
    I listed them for sale on eBay as I'd like to try the 600mm Tamron......I hear many say at 600mm it's not that sharp but I'm going to press my luck and see if I get a sharp sample. I may also send the A7II out to remove the IR filter which will sharpen it quite a bit.
