Sigma 300-800mm f/5.6 EX DG HSM

 

This lens from Sigma is in a class of it's own! Nobody else makes anything like it! Nothing else (apart from it's prime brother) that you can buy off the shelf for less than the price of a house has this sort of reach. So why have Sigma gone to such...

Excellent picture quality; Astonishing focal range.; Fast and silent autofocus.; Good price for the capabilities

Zoom, soft color, contrast and sharpness

finish could be better, heavy

I saw this lens demonstrated and thought I could never justify spending so much on such a vast product - strange how view change. The important thing to say is that without a gimbal head like a Wimberley it is totally impractical - with one it becomes...
