p.2 #1 · New Sigma 120-300 2.8


Also great for landscapes (last image, I promise!). The 120-300's corner sharpness is excellent when you are out a bit past the minimum focusing distance. Up super close the corners aren't perfect (which is why you can see some corner softness in the-digital-picture crops, that doesn't match up to the Sigma MTFs for the lens). At infinity the corners are flawless, they are good even at 2.8... I'd say 120mm is the weaker end, some minor CA on that end, 300mm is basically entirely free from both types of CA...Anyway, here's a landscape, taken while out fishing in our secret spot last summer...haha... ;-)

I like mine, versatile and great IQ with the sigma convertors as well.

I horsed around with one for awhile This lil gal meets with movie producers this morning (double)
Scouts saw me shootin' the event...viewed the pics and offered her a gig in a western. I'll no doubt get
the new one as I love the feel/range of this zoom. Fingers crossed on AF improvements.

Apparently its optically identical to the old version, so I wouldn't expect anything radical. The old one was pretty decent though!


I think someone said that about the 150 OS when it came out too. well it was "slightly" different and "slightly" better too. enough for me to replace my original.

I'm glad they're moving away from the textured rubberized coating. It's a minor point, but it's really the only complaint I have about my Sigma 300 f/2.8... not sure why they went with such a dust-loving coating that scratches so easily in the first place.

Thanks, everyone, for sharing your pics and the info!

That's too bad that the sigma won't be able to use the Nikon TC's.

I guess it's still better than having to pay for a nikon 300/2.8 or a 200-400 though!
(sorry, I'm just trying to look on the bright side)
