    These were taken with the Siggy 120-300 and auto ISO, which usually picked 6400.

    These look great. This camera rocks the high ISO. Great color.

    These are very nice, I think you managed the lighting very well. The action is appreciable and is cropped tightly. Nice colors and contrast too. Thanks for sharing your shots with us.

    I assume this is the Sigma 2.8 version, if not I am really impressed. #2 is a great image as it shows the play developing.

    My noise reduction is despeckle in photoshop elements. When I crop, some noise crops up, but not severe.

    That's what I really love about the camera. Even at high ISO, the colors still look vibrant if the exposure is good.

    It is the 2.8. I have had the lens for 3 months and I really like how versatile is. If used correctly, it is great with a 2x extender for wildlife and even sports in great light at around f8-f9 with AF being able to track a flying bird. With a 1.4x, there is not much loss in IQ or AF.

    #1 and #2 are my fav's. The color is really nice IMO.
