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

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...

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

The big maximum aperture undoubtedly makes it a more unwieldy lens, which isn't particularly welcome news, but that will often make the difference between a comfortable shutter speed and one that produces wobbly shots. The Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG...

Sigma AF 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM OS - Full Format Review / Lab Test Report

 

The Sigma AF 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM OS is a consumer grade tele zoom lens with a relatively decent albeit not spectacular performance. The resolution figures are generally fine in the image center whereas the borders/corners are just soso in the...

REVIEW: Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM

 

Priced well, Good build quality, Optical Stabilisation, Silent focusing with full-time manual override

Prone to flare when used without the supplied lens hood, Loose zoom mechanism suffers with zoom creep, Hunts for focus in low light conditions

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

 

A competitively-priced, optically-stabilised long-zoom lens for DSLR cameras with 'full-frame' or 'APS-C' sized image sensors.A close cousin to the APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM lens, which has also been reviewed on the Photo Review website, Sigma's...

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...
