Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 EX DG HSM

Review Date: Jul 28, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Zoom & Range, COST! takes teleconvertors well,(I use Canon mkII 1.4x and mkIII 2x) much much better keeper rate than the 100-400L, accepts a front filter / CPL, great solid build quality Good soft carry bag with padded strap and awesome handle / camera mount
Heavy, Expenive CPL / UV filters at 105mm, focus not as fast or accurate as Canon 300mm primes, no range limiter :(

I Use on 7d's at the moment and so cannot comment of FF performance, It is much better than the 100-400; or a 70-200L IS f2.8L(mk1) OR F4L IS with teleconvetors if you want extra reach for wildlife this is a great lens, and strangley it is cheaper in Australia than most of the world? at $2400 this is a great buy

Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM

Review Date: Jan 24, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated

Pros: Lightweight, PRICE, decent macro, QUIET, no canon lens covers the same range, comes with a hood - OS - ZOOM LOCK
Stiff focus ring, sharpest in the middle of its range, zoom lock only works when the lens is closed..

Use this on my 7d as a walk around lens, im more interested in tele so spent my money on l glass there, this lens is a great complement to the 70-200L - i use a flash if its lower light of use a prime - 50mm etc

Highly recommend this lens for travel and adventure shooting with the 7D, it packs light and covers a great range with excellent to good quality
