| p.2 #8 · Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 OS lens & USB dock delayed |
I have been closely following this lens and waiting for it to be released; anxious to hear the early reviews. Every time I looked for info on weight I could not find anything. When I saw the above post, I was very disappointed in the weight. Curious, I went looking for more info. The only thing I could find was this link:
The wierd thing is if you click on the lens only, the weight line is empty, BUT if you click on its Compare button and that of the 300 2.8 right next to it, then click 'Click to compare', the weight of the 120-300 is shown as 3.5lbs. The link indicates this is the new 120-300, as the collar handle style would also indicate. As much as I am disappointed in the 7.5lbs indicated above, I am surprised and somewhat skeptical of the 3.5lbs indicated here.
I'm hoping Fred or somebody else can help unravel this confusion. Anybody have a direct line into Sigma?!
