I have the Jobu foot and it works great. I use it on a Gimbal or a cine fluid head. In front of a D500 with grip.Anyone use this one? I'm not opposed to getting th Sigma foot but I'm doing Google due diligence before I buy the Sigma. The Jobu seems long enough and is half the price of Sigma.
that sounds like the old sigma companySo I just returned my Sport and got another from Amazon. They were good enough to allow me to return it after the 30 day window. I took it to my granddaughter's field hockey game and was disappointed with the results. Nothing was crisp and I took about 200 shots.
I posted in the sports forum that I needed help worried that it was me and not the lens. I did some further backyard testing and I felt that the lens just was not right.
The replacement lens came in today and to my eye is better, I even took a hand held shot of the birdhouse I posted in my earlier posts and even it looks much better than the monopod shots above. I think I'm now happy with the lens though I will use my new 30 day return period to do some real life testing...hopefully another fame and some animals.
This is the THIRD Sigma lens I've returned recently, the other two were Art lenses and all of the replacements were better than the originals and the 20mm Art had something funky going on with it as it was leaking light.
Looks like the contoured aspect would make it far move comfortable for carrying as well.This might be worth a look. seems to have a bit more room for the fingers. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sunwayfoto-Lens-Replacement-Foot-LF-M1-for-Sigma-Lens-150-600mm-f-5-6-3-DG-OS-/252498745826?hash=item3aca1919e2:g:A0cAAOSwMtxXruFk
I considered returning mine and getting something lighter but the push/pull zoom feature is why I kept it.This lens is problematic on any support because of the weight shift as you zoom to 600mm. The worst is a ball head followed by a monopod. A gimbal is best but still weird.
For me, even at 65 and with a bad back, this lens rocks HH when I push/pull the zoom
