Nikon 300mm f/4 ED-IF AF-S Nikkor

1909NAS_180
Review Date: Aug 14, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,050.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Color rendition, bokeh. Fast, quiet autofocus. Price, size and weight. Good quality results when used with TC14EII.
Cons:
Tripod collar.

This is an excellent lens for those looking to go long for cheap. The focus is fast and quiet. Only downside is the tripod collar, it's flimsy and prone to shake. Kirk makes a replacement tripod collar for this lens, go get it! With the Kirk tripod collar it's an excellent lens.

 
Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 EX Aspherical

Review Date: Aug 14, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $285.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Build quality is quite good, comes with a nice case and a plastic lens hood. Good color rendition and contrast.
Cons:
Heavy, loud focus. Soft wide open.

A bargain for an f2.8 lens. Image is soft when used wide open, better at f5.6 and beyond.
