Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM

 

Sigma's 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM is the lens to get if a 70-200mm f/2.8 just isn't long enough, but you'll need a strong back to lug it.

Wide f/2.8 aperture throughout zoom range. Impressive telephoto reach. Very sharp. Minimal distortion. Excellent build quality. Compatible with USB dock

Expensive. Very large and heavy. Huge front element increases filter costs

The Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM ($3,599 direct) isn't a lens for the faint of heart. The zoom, which is compatible with full-frame and APS-C camera bodies and is available in Canon, Nikon, and Sigma mounts, brings new meanings to the words big and...

Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM Lens

 

The Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM Lens is unique in it's capabilities - at this time, no other Canon-mount zoom lens can maintain an action-stopping f/2.8 aperture beyond 200mm. This lens has action-sports written all over it. Perhaps more than from...

Sports photography is the primary market for the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM Lens, but there are other good uses for it. On a full frame body, compressed portraits are one. On a 1.6x body or with extenders, wildlife is another. Basically, any...

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

 

An affordable telephoto lens for Canon, Nikon and Sigma DSLRs

Optical stabilisation ; Solid, weather-proof construction ; Available in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts ; Superb image quality ; Reasonable price

Heavy and unwieldy at times ; No rubber seal on lens mount ; Tripod mount isn't great

Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX APO IF HSM lens

 

One of the most useful and popular telephoto zoom lens ranges is one that goes to 300mm focal length. Sigma's latest 120-300mm is developed from the 300mm f/2.8 prime lens and offers a useful alternative for the sports photographer who would normally...

Despite its bulk, which you learn to live with once you discover its capabilities, I found the lens a joy to use. With a professional weight camera fitted it's very well balanced about the rigid mounting point and the mounting point is easily removed...
