Sigma 135-400 MM f/4.5-5.6 ASP AF APO

18499135-400
Review Date: Apr 22, 2008 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: Price, build quality, tripod collar
Cons:
Shocking lens creep, slow AF, soft images, noise (ISO)

Inconsistant is what this lens is. I have given it a workout in different conditions, settings, hand held, tripod and I would say that for every 100 shots I would get 1 that I am just happy with.

It is a fair weather lens to say the least. If you can't get 1/1000th then forget it. Once you crank the ISO up the shots are stuffed (poor quality). Maybe mine is a bad copy but I won't be trying another. I have even tried to sell it at a huge reduction and nobody wants it!

I only bought it because I love wildlife shots and now I have it, I hate it, and I miss my 70-200 f/4 that I sold to get it.
