Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO review by eguan88

Pros: versatile zoom, good optic, come with stablizer
Cons: heavy, big

I was able to pick up cheap from a friend of mine, very sharp very happy with the use of it, and I've done some research about this lens. This lens has the same optic and MTF curve as the newer Sport version, it's a bargain performer consider what I have paid for.

Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO review by sonylover1
Review Date: 8/8/2012 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $2,500.00| Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp wide open, super sharp from 6.3. Takes TC with full AF. 2x very good from f9. OS
Cons: Heavy. Inconsistent AF wich requires micradjustment. Contrast a bit weak.

Bought this lens after long consideration and after testing a used non OS version. Very pleasent surprise after testing on birds and wildlife.


Have a supersharp Canon 100-400 but need more reach and better F plus full AF which is imposible witch Canon and a TC (unless you go for 1D). It possible to reach 600 mm and with my 7D it equals 960 mm. With the very good 3 step OS and full AF i have managed BIF shots impossible with the Canonlens.


It is heavy, 3 kg so i prefer my Canon 100-400 when mobile.
When i want bokeh and supersharp photos i use my Sigma.
Due to better OS and 2.8 you have a 3-4 steps advantage over the Canonlens.


All in all higly recommended for people who wants a versatile lens ( 120-300 F2,8 or 160-420 F 4,0). You get very good pics even with 600 mm F 9,0.

Pros:
Cons:

I purchase this lens in july 2011.
It's an amazing zoom near equivalent to the Nikon 300mm 2.8 vr.
It is a very performant lens and more versatile than a fix for a price very competitive.


No regret at all.
