Sigma 100-300mm f4 EX IF HSM APO

100-300if_1_
Review Date: May 7, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp, bright, fast and silent AF. Good feeling of quality, perfectly stiff zoom and focus rings.
Cons:
Heavy, long (especially with the bucket-sized hood on). Tripod ring is in a strange position for hand-holding.

Bought second (third->) hand, upgrading from Canon EF 100-300/4.5-5.6 USM, mostly for nature and wildlife use on 1.6x crop.
When unpacking the lens, the length and weight kind of shocked me.

I have no complaints so far about the image quality. Focus is slightly faster than the ring USM on the Canon lens I am used to.
