Re: Nikkor 70-200/4 VR, Sigma 100-300/4 or something else?


Hi
The Sigma 100-300/4 HSM is somewhat of a freak of nature! I have one that I bought mint and sent mine back to Sigma as it was back focusing very slightly! Two trips back and my freak is on. Using it on a D800E and D600 at 100mm f4 it is as sharp as my 105 VR and at 300mm almost the equal of my 300mm f2.8. .
FWIW In my humble opinion their is not a single lens that can take the best value on the planet crown away from the Sigma 100-300mm f4 HSM until they bring out a OS model.

Have to let on that my Nikon 300mm f2.8 is on the B&S and it and the Sigma are nearly equals at half the price..

Now I have done it and let years of research out the bag! Wait till trenchmonkey anf Jonathan find out!
