Sigma 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 APO Aspherical RF AF Review Round-Up

 

The Sigma AF 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 APO Aspherical RF is not a perfect lens nor can you expect that a budget lens reaches high end quality levels. Nonetheless it is capable to provide very decent results especially in the 135-300mm range. At 400mm @ f/5.6...

Sigma 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 Aspherical APO review by Nikola_Konsulov

 

I wanted a zoom lens with a good range. I came across this Sigma and I thought "why not." I checked out any official reviews I could find on the web (not many). It seemed that the lens was well regarded. I think it is.

Great zoom range, good aperture range (f4.5-5.6), can produce sharp images, can have realitively fast auto focus

Zoom creep, tends to hunt in low light

Sigma 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 Aspherical APO review by AlainD

 

I had this lens for only about a week (bought used and returned it) as mine had a bad back focusing issue (so check for that!), but also the zoom ring is VERY stiff and couldn't use it on the field easily with just 1 hand while holding on a monopod...

cheap, reach

very stiff zoom ring, 135 not very wide

Sigma 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 Aspherical APO review by sidd

 

Sigma 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG APO – This lens had the potential to be a winner. The zoom range is just under 3X which means the compromises in lens design are to the minimum. I had the non DG version of this lens. Unfortunately the optics are not great;...

Cheap, good focal range, recommended only if you're on a budget

Focus speed and huntinf, zoom creep

Okay lens for staters

 

Remember this... you always need a tripod. I was disappointed at first until I decided to tripod this lens. Even in bright light at the longer telephoto setting it will be soft without the tripod. This lens also gives great bokeh when used for...

Long focal length. Very sharp 135-300 f8. 400mm is a little softer.

Heavy and big.

Product Specifications

This compact apochromatic ultra-telephoto zoom lens covers frequently used 400 mm focal length. It is the ideal lens for shooting sports, nature, wildlife, landscapes and other types of photography that frequently use this telephoto range. This lens uses one aspherical lens and three SLD (the special low dispersion) glasses for excellent correction of chromatic aberration. Color aberration in the secondary spectrum is compensated by using three pieces of Special Low-Dispersion glass (SLD), and making high-quality images a reality throughout the entire zoom range. The five-group zoom and rear focus systems ensure high performance stability and ease of use. A removable tripod collar is included as a standard component.
