Sigma 300mm f2.8 EX APO HSM

300f2_8EX_lg_1_
Review Date: Jun 18, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,200.00 | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: Excellent glass; from what I can tell, the glass on this lens is just as good as the canon 300mm 2.8.
Cons:
Motor drive noisy and construction flimsy.

I used this lens for shooting professional golf tournaments and the image quality was excellent. The problem with this lens is that there are only 3 or 4 tiny screws holding the mount to the lens and when attached to a camera and monopod, they pulled out and the mount nearly came completely of the lens.
I sold the lens and replaced it with a Canon.
No problems since, and I will never purchase an off brand lens again.
