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 APO 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM

 

Despite being bulky, heavy, and expensive, the Sigma APO 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM is a high-quality, fast-performing telephoto lens that won't let you down. Because it features Sigma's exclusive Optical Image Stabilization, now you can rest assured...

Expensive- similarly-priced models seem betterExtraordinary- exclusive integrated telephoto image stabilizationEtiquette- autofocus motor is nearly silentEasy- especially targeted for camera owners who want simplicity

Extra- perhaps too bulky and heavy for many people

If you need a versatile telephoto zoom lens for your SLR, then consider...

Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM APO Review Round-Up

 

Sigma has produced a nice telephoto zoom here, and the inclusion of optical image stabilization will be a welcome upgrade from its previous offerings in the similar range. This stabilization is necessary, as good image sharpness in the telephoto range...

great lens doesn't focus on my camera

 

I really wanted this lense for wildlife photography as it is just the right size to travel with and hand hold. I returned it because it would not focus at all on my Nikon D7000. Apparently Sigma has had problems with some of these lense focusing.

High quality product

 

Bought this lens 10 months ago to fill a hole in my available lenses. Have not been disappointed with the results during a period when the light has often been very poor. It is teamed with a Canon EOS 7D, and together they make a very heavy...

Wow what a lens

 

I researched this lens for months before eventually buying it from WEX , I even filled a plastic bottle with water to get a feel of how heavy it was . I use a Nikon D7000 with a MB-D11 battery pack and when you attach the Sigma 400 to it ,it just fits...
