Reviews and Problems with Sigma APO 80-400mm F4.5-5.6 EX DG OS
Showing 1-5 of 5
Great 400mm reach and the OS works a treat..Grab a good used one if you can

Summary: Fantastic cheaper alternative to the Nikon lens of the same size and f-stops.The EX branding ensures a solid build and although the AF is a little slow (as is the NIKON) this lens is a fantastic piece of gear for the photographer who wants a large telephoto lens with optical stabilization.A great Sigma to pick up second hand if found in good condition as it is better built than the Sigma !
Summary: For half price the lens has a few used issues but have already got some of my best pictures with it. May need to send in to have the mount tightened, just need to keep a close watch on it, if it remains as it is I will be using it for a long time. Should have asked more questions before bidding when I found it listed decided to put in a max bid at the last second and won it. There are no scratches or dings and is a very sharp lens for its age.
