The Sigma APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM is a good choice if you are looking for a lens that is capable of photographing sports action and wildlife. The 10x zoom gives you great flexibility for covering a range of photo subjects, but the large size means that it is not really a lens you would choose to pop out with for a quick bit of street photography.
The inclusion by Sigma of image stabilisation with the APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM reduces the need for the use of a tripod or monopod in some situations although in many situations you are likely to find some sort of support for this lens is more or less a necessity.
The APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM is also compatible with Sigma tele converters that can increase the power of the lens up to 1000mm.
