  • Conclusion: Can you shoot with the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM handheld? Just about, but don't expect to be able to train it on a subject for particularly long - a monopod is important unless you want aching arms. Attach it to a support and it feels well-balanced and easy to manoeuvre.
  • Pros: Optical stabilisation, Solid, weather-proof construction, Available in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts, Superb image quality, Reasonable price
  • Cons: Heavy and unwieldy at times, No rubber seal on lens mount, Tripod mount isn't great

Lens Test: Sigma APO 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM

  • Excerpt: Sigma has an enviable corner on the f/2.8 long telezoom market: Its massive 200–500mm and more manageable 120–300mm full-framers are the sole occupants of the niche. Now, Sigma has upgraded the latter, adding image stabilization to this pro’s 70–200mm staple on steroids.

  • Excerpt: Practically every optics producer has a unique lens on their offer, something which you won’t find in line-ups of its competitors. Sigma boasts several such models, mainly among its zoom telephoto devices; for example the very well-done Sigma 100-300 mm f/4 DG EX APO IF HSM was one of a kind.
  • Cons: unacceptable frame edges after attaching the converter,, weak performance against bright light,, necessity of using huge 105 mm filters,, lack of autofocus limiter.

Sigma AF 120-300mm f/2.8 APO EX HSM DG OS (Canon EOS) - Review / Lens Test

19 May 2011
  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 120-300mm f/2.8 APO EX HSM DG OS is a refreshingly unique design. It offers the best of both worlds - the flexibility of the popular 70-200mm f/2.8 tele zoom lenses and the reach of the big 300mm f/2.8 prime lenses. The question of the day is, of course, whether it can deliver ?

  • Summary: Sigma 120–300 mm f/2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM to niewątpliwie obiektyw ciekawy i udany. To, co szczególnie w nim mi się podoba, to jego ogromna uniwersalność. Mając go w swoim arsenale i dokupując konwertery 1.4x oraz 2.0x (w przypadku Nikona możemy jeszcze użyć modelu 1.7x) pokrywamy, w zasadzie z pełną...
  • Pros: solidna, zwarta i zamknięta obudowa,, dobre światło w połączeniu z ciekawym zakresem ogniskowych oraz możliwością stosowania konwerterów daje dużą uniwersalność,, świetna rozdzielczość w centrum kadru niezależnie od ogniskowej,, dobra rozdzielczość na brzegu matrycy APS-C/DX,, prawidłowo korygowa...
  • Cons: brzegi kadru po podłączeniu konwertera robią się nieakceptowalne,, słaba praca pod ostre światło,, konieczność stosowania ogromnych filtrów o średnicy 105 mm,, brak ogranicznika zakresu pracy mechanizmu ustawiającego ostrość.
