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

  • Conclusion: While no lens of this power is going to be compact, the Sigma is as light and short as you could reasonably expect. Like any long, weighty telephoto, ideally you would always combine this lens with the stability of a support. This isn’t always practical, though, particularly when shooting wildlife. Thankfully, due to the effectiveness of the OS technology, this is a lens you can confidently use handheld at two or three stops slower than would otherwise be possible.

Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM Lens Review

ePHOTOzine
11 March 2011
  • Summary: Being priced at £675, this lens represents a good value choice for those looking for a super-telephoto lens, without the extortionate price tag associated with some camera manufacturer's own lenses in this range. For it's price, it has excellent build quality and a good range of useful features, such as Optical Stabilisation and silent focusing, but some aspects of handling could still be improved, like the looseness of the zoom mechanism.
  • Pros: Priced well, Good build quality, Optical Stabilisation, Silent focusing with full-time manual override
  • Cons: Prone to flare when used without the supplied lens hood, Loose zoom mechanism suffers with zoom creep, Hunts for focus in low light conditions

  • Excerpt: Mye for pengene Mye for pengene. Like stor som Nikons 70-200 2.8 VR. Kan diskutere om den gjør mye av samme nytten med en 2x-konverter. Denne vil ha noe bedre blenderåpning på den korte enden. Enkel vei inn i fuglefotoverden. Skal testes på safari i Afrika neste uke. Der kommer den nok til sin rett. Godt kjøp.
  • Pros: Fabelaktig OS-funksjon. OK bildekvalitet i forhold til pengene. Lite jaging på fokus. Relativt kompakt.
  • Cons: Bruker en del batteri ved bruk av OS. Ikke like krystallklar som proffobjektivene. Knappene for å låse zoomen samt å endre OS-innstilling er veldig lett å bevege så jeg har ved flere anledninger switchet disse uten intensjon.
