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...

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...

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.

Lightweight ; Strong Construction

Won't Focus On Nikond7000
