Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 EX DG HSM

120_300_1_
Review Date: Mar 12, 2005 Recommend? | Price paid: $1,900.00

 
Pros: Zoom good sharpness
Cons:
slower autofocus then canon . actually alittle shy of 300 mm

Well after a year I sold my 120-300. I have felt i was not getting as much critcal sharpness from this lens as I wanted. If I shot nothing but HS or kid sports I would have kept it. But I shoot pro sports and rock and roll for an arena. For my local paper work it was a great lens. but for the critical times I was dissapointed just a bit. so I got a a canon 300 f2.8 is. The autofocus is just a a little slow for the pro sports arena. If canon had its autofocus in it I might still own it. It is aslo a little shy of 300 mm .

Pros: Sharp as a tact. Excellent autofocus speed - I shoot sports- I can zoom on a runner from 2nd to 3rd and not cut him off. I have had 2 copies of tghis lens the first had the infamous out of alignment problem . Months after the shuttbug article. The second was soft till it was sent in to be fixed. Do not buy this lens from a sleazy dealer to save a few bucks . Buy with a usa warranty
Cons:
You have to buy an accesory tripod adapter to hung on your shoulder. This costs 150 dollars This lens is heavy but can be handheld. Not quite Lseries build quality. Quality control .

This lens is quite simply phonemonal,when you have it working right.
