Reviews and Problems with Sigma APO 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG MACRO
Showing 1-3 of 3
20 November 2011
Conclusion: At its longest telephoto setting, the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro lens has a 0.5x macro facility, similar to the Tamron 70-300mm Di LD Macro lens. The Sigma comes complete with a lens hood and soft pouch.
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).
