It's a 500mm lens. That means that on a cropped sensor, it's equivalent to 750mm and to get sharp results you'll need a shutter speed of at least 1/750s. If you look at all his shots, this is the reason he pushes high ISO.

Is this a new lens? I tried searching for it on google.ca and there are no stores that sell this.

It seems like another option to my current Sigma 10-20-hsm

read the entire thread. The fact is, that 500mm works out to 750mm with the crop factor, so you need minimum 750th of a second shutter speeds to stop camera shake. This lens doesn't have IS/VR etc. Because of that, you have to make a choice shoot lower Iso and get camera shake, or shoot higher and get noisey but shake free shots.

I see...thank you for the explanation. That's a bit of a downfall...
