The Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 EX DG was released in 2008. At the time of its release, it was the longest f/2.8 telephoto zoom in the world and it still is to this day. It was also considered to be an absolutely ridiculous lens. It’s still considered one of those today, too. But don’t let that get in the way of a hilariously overkill portrait shooting setup.
In this video, photographer Tom Calton managed to get his hands on one for the day to have a play with for some portraits. Once he takes it out of the case, you can immediately see just how insane it is that this lens even exists – let alone trying to use it for portraits. But, that’s exactly what he does. Whether or not the results this produces are worth the $26,000 price tag… Well, I’ll let you decide.
