Depends on the camera and sensor how this lens works

NF, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I have been using this lens for years on differing camera bodies and found depending on the modernity of the auto focus for Canon, the lens responds differently. In low light conditions, of course it is less successful in auto focus..duh!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Signma 120-400mm with Pentax K3 moving subject focusing

Richard Albeck, Amazon
15 June 2015
  • Summary: It's a heavy lens. Not so much that I worry about it. But for extended use you would want a monopod at least if using higher magnifications. I have been testing with the continuous focus with Pentax K3 and it works well. Focus is nearly silent and pretty quick.

It's not a bad lens, but I'd recommend saving your money for ...

  • Summary: The image quality never impressed me compared to the Canon 100-400mm lens. It's not a bad lens, but I'd recommend saving your money for a higher quality lens if you are picky.

This lens is one of the best I've ever used

  • Summary: I have been an amateur SLR photographer since 1973(before "D"). Since then I've shot through many expensive and inexpensive lenses with varied, and variable, focal lengths and I've learned that I have to try each lens to see how it handles in MY hands. This lens is one of the best I've ever used.

I am a very happy camper!

  • Summary: It took a lot for me to give up my Minolta 100-400 lens. The crispness of the Sigma 120-400 was what it took. I've got optical stabilization in my cameras and don't need the 120-400 with stabilization(I.E. two circuits pull the battery down twice as fast). I am a very happy camper!

FANTASTIC for the price!!! Go for it !!!

tommirulz, Ebay
1 November 2014
  • Summary: I decided to try this instead of the Canon 70-300 USM lens, for my new zoom lens. I love it !! It is huge and heavy - but I knew that going in and I don't mind carrying it. I don't like tri pods - and this guys works great hand held on my 7D.

Great for a day light shooting and still photography

Christopher Holt, Amazon
25 October 2014
  • Summary: Great for still shots in daylight shooting, However I purchase this lens to shoot night time football action where the lighting in high school sports aren't that great. the f/4-56 just doesn't let enough light in.

I Can See Clearly Now

Joseph Mainhall, Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: I wad wanted the Canon 100-400 L for years but bought this one at about half the price. I am very pleased with the lens and really can not tell any difference between this and the Canon I borrowed from my friend on many occasions. Focus and IS are great.
