Summary: First of all I will try and keep this review short and sweet as possible without being overly technical. I shoot with a Canon 50D, and 7D. I own two sigma lenses the 17-70 2.8 EX Series as well as the 70-200 2.8 Series and have been extremely happy with them. I wanted a lens with this particular zoom range for shooting sports. The 70-200 wasn't cutting it, and also I wanted to get into wildlife photography as well.
Summary: I have been using this lens regularly and have been very pleased with my photos. I am not a professional but I have been interested in photography since the 80's. This has been my biggest investment in a lens to date and I am very happy I went with the Sigma! I want to mention that I am using a Canon 60D (crop sensor). I love nature photography and this lens has made close ups possible. The limitations are ,of course, light.
Summary: Purchased as a used lens in good condition, but found it to be like new! I wish I had bought this lens sooner as I find it more manageable for me than my previous 150-500mm lens. I have arthritis in my left shoulder which makes it harder for me to use a long lens, but the 120-400 works well. Very sharp lens.
Summary: This lens is heavy like others have said; I used my sisters Nikon 400mm and it's just as heavy, so I would guess pretty much all of the lens of this size will have weight to them. I have only used it one time so far but I can tell it's going to be one of my favorites. It performs great with clear images (thanks to the stabilizer). I would recommend this lens to anyone at any level of photography.
Awesome lens! For Landscape, sports and almost any outdoor photography

Summary: I love landscape photography and approaching the object is sometimes hard. Love this lens its sharp, speed is not a problem using a tripod. I also bought the 2x Tele converter and opened a lot of new possibilities. Totally recommend both.
Summary: I love this beast. It is big. I was surprised by how big, but it has to be to do what it does. It is sharp, has pretty fast auto-focus and is well built. The tripod bracket accepts a standard 1/4-20 tripod mounting screw of course but I was surprised, and very pleased, to discover that it clamps right into an Arca-Swiss style quick release. I assumed I would have to add a mounting plate to fit my other gear but I did not.
