No better sports telephoto lens for the price!

JohnG, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: As a Canon user, I strongly contemplated the Canon 300mm f/2.8. While YouTube reviews gave great remarks about the Sigma 120-300 lens for the features and great price, but they all seemed reluctant to make this as a first choice.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Low light Sports A plus

Susanna Maria Harper, Amazon

  • Summary: Love this lens. Love it. Love it. Love it. I am a sports photographer and journalist for a small daily paper. Getting publication worthy shots in the first quarter of a high school football game is critical to making deadline for the photos and story which is usually about 10 to 20 minutes after the...

After testing at a Sigma Event :(

J. Gwinn, Amazon

  • Summary: A few things to consider; weight and cost. For where this lens is priced you could purchase a 135L,200L and 300L f4..Or you could purchase the 70-200mm ii L and a 300L f4 etc. This lens is HEAVY and you must have a monopod to support it.

++ Wide f/2.8 aperture throughout zoom range, very sharp images ++

  • Summary: Sigma's 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM is the lens to get if a 70-200mm f/2.8 just isn't long enough, but you'll need a strong back to lug it around if your planning to take sport or wildlife pictures.

  • Excerpt: Carried the Sigma 120-300 F/2.8 to Yellowstone. It was mounted on a Nikon D7100. The quality of the photos was astounding. I am not a photographer by trade or hobby I usually just enjoy the pics my daughter takes as she is the skilled one in the family.

  • Summary: I really liked the picture quality of this camera, unfortunately I had to return it because it would front focus on the long end and back focus on the short end.. I am aware that this can probably be remedied using the USB dock but none were in stock for Canon, in fact none were in stock for a few...

  • Summary: I haven't had this lens for very long, but I'd like to offer my first impressions. This is the first ever, non-Nikkor lens I have purchased! This is the most expensive lens I own, as well.

Still meeting all expectations

Briarcliff Baron, B&H Photo
10 December 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a follow up to my previous post. I've used this lens twice now to shoot surfers, with the 2x teleconverter of course. Per my previous post, I've been using a Tamron 200-500 for this sort of action, and I was please with that. The difference, however, in sharpness is dramatic with the Sigma.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
