The Sigma 200-500 f/2.8 EX DG is a monster lens. To hand-hold this 35 lb. monster is nuts. The photographer above was just proving that he could (though he admits that this isn’t the best way to take photos with this lens):
I always handhold my Canon 600 f/4 IS and some time ago I was asked if I can handhold the Sigma monster…yes, I can but obviously it is just for fun; I can handhold it just for few minutes, and I need very fast SS to get sharp photos. The photos taken during the test had been taken on the sturdy Gitzo tripod.
Thanks for the link, Bernard!
