Shot with my Sigma 150-500mm OS DG @290mm focal length with OS active. Shot hand-Held & I continue to be impressed with the Sigma's OS effectiveness.

Mr Andrew Tan goes to the zoo...that lens is amazing Andrew! Did you get it at Sim Lim Square? I am thinking of updating my 50-500 sigma to this one...
