Sigma APO 100-300mm F4 EX DG HSM Lens Review

SLR Lens and Camera Reviews
26 March 2008
  • Summary: All-in-all, Sigma 100-300mm f/4 EX DG HSM is an excellent lens. Combination of constant (moderately fast) aperture, excellent build and image quality and affordable (for a telephoto zoom lens) price allowed Sigma to create a very attractive package that should be quite popular among photographers.

REVIEW: Sigma 100-300mm f/4 EX DG

26 January 2008
  • Conclusion: As a step up from the run of the mill >300mm zooms this lens is certainly worth considering. The constant aperture and faster, quieter autofocusing make all the difference, ably helped by a constant length and internal focus mechanism to make handling a joy.
  • Pros: Constant aperture and length, Fast, silent autofocus, Good contrast and resolution
  • Cons: Bigger size and weight than the lower group, Some CA around the edges at the long end.
