  • Summary: Not the newest, but this Sigma zoom lens still has something to offer at the price
  • Pros: Close-focusing 0.5x macro ability in the 200-300mm zoom range, Impressive build quality at the price, Sharp at all but the longest telephoto setting
  • Cons: No optical stabilisation, Lacks Sigma's HSM autofocus, and the basic motor is quite noisy, Poor image contrast in dull lighting

Sigma AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG APO macro - Review / Test Report

31 March 2008
  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG APO macro came close to a surprise but it still hasn´t won the cigar. It delivered pretty decent results in most aspects, specifically at 70mm and 200mm, but at 300mm the border resolution is nothing short of dismal - certainly not apochromatic as claimed by Sigma (nor would we really expect that from such a budget lens).
