  • Excerpt: I wanted a good lens for bird photography and bought this lens because I couldnt afford the canon 300mm f4 is lens which I now rescently bought and takes SHARP BIRD IMAGES. The Sigma lens has NEVER given me one sharp image in the two years I have had it and I have sent it back to Sigma twice with their "its in perameters" comment on return.They did not want to know!
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Quick way to ruin a vacation...

  • Summary: I have a Nikon D90 and I purchased this lens to take on an African safari. The lens had been recommended by an associate at B&H and offered a substantial value relative to Nikon 80-400mm. Initially, I was happy with the lens; there seemed to be some AF issues, but for the most part I was satisfied with the pictures (and to be honest, I wasn't sure how much of the problem was user-driven).

  • Excerpt: I bought this to photograph wildlife and while I have no complaints with the focus speed I find the lens very soft with poor contrast when compared to a friends 100-400L. I cannot point to one sharp image from over 500 test shots[...]Yes it is cheap when compared to Canon's 100-400 but is it money saved or money wasted? Personally I feel I've wasted[$] rather than saved $800.
  • Pros: Quick Focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Soft image

  • Excerpt: Начитавшись отзывов в сети, купил этот объектив без проверки. И когда потестил дома, испытал шок от его отвратительных характеристик. Это в первую очередь мыло на открытой диафрагме, не проходящее даже при закрывании ее на 2-3 стопа! Мыло до такой степени, что даже 70-300VR на 300 мм на полностью открытой диафрагме показывает больше деталей, чем эта сигма на 400 мм!Причем объектив фокусируется точно, мыло - не следствие промаха при фокусировке!
  • Pros: Сильных сторон нет. Хотя, при длительном использовании, у вас есть шанс стать сильной стороной :)
  • Cons: Мыльный, тяжелый, плохой стабилизатор.

  • Summary: Ich hatte mir dieses Objektiv gekauft weil ich etwas mehr Brennweite wollte und der Preis im Vergleich zum Canon 100-400mm sehr attraktiv erschien. Das Objektiv machte zunächst einen sehr hochwertigen Eindruck. Geliefert wurde es in einem sehr guten, gepolsterten Köcher, es fühlte sich toll an und war absolut solide verarbeitet. Der positive Eindruck verflog aber sofort als ich die ersten Testfotos machte.
