70-300_isusm
Review Date: Mar 28, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Image quality hardly noticeable from 'L' Image stabilisers spot-on. Handy Lens Lock
Cons:
No lens hood Tad over-priced.

I replaced a Canon 100-400mm L with this lens because it's
some much lighter and compact.

A sample of what the lens can do:

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

18499135-400
Review Date: Apr 27, 2004 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 2 

 
Pros: None I could merit over the Canon 75-300mm 4-5.6 II USM it replaced
Cons:
The 300/400mm 'reach' was a waste of time... softer than a babies butt. I bought the lens for the 'reach' - I should never had bothered.

Well made..well equipped with lens hood and tripod ring, the carry case
is pure tinsel, who would lug this heavy lens about for so little reward.?

Sorry Sigma but this lens is best forgotten...
