Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM "S"

Screen_Shot_2013-11-15_at_11_12_41_AM
Review Date: Dec 2, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp Fast AF when tweaked with the USB dock Custom modes Great with the 1.4x and 2x Great range
Cons:
Heavier than the Canon and Nikon versions (which are not a zoom lens though)

I have tried practically every Nikon, Canon and Sigma telephotos.

This is one of my favourite lenses and, with the variable limiter and AF speed customization, fixes the main complain I had from the precious version.

Very usable at 600mm f5.6, very sharp at 600mm f6.3 and tack sharp at f7.1 with the D800e

Pros: Sharp, Fast AF
Cons:
Zoom ring a little stiff

Moved to Nikon from Canon recently.
This was purchased to pair with a D7100 to replace a Canon 650D and 100-400mm. The 100-400mm copy I had was one of the best I tried, very sharp, as sharp as the Canon 400mm 5.6 I also owned.

The new Nikon 80-400 is even sharper. Fantastic lens on both the D7100 and D800e.

A bit too expensive but price will eventually go down.
