Hi Gordon. Sigma's new range of lenses especially the Art and Sports rainge are fabolous. The glass and build quality are in some cases better than Nikons. Now in saying all that I got the Nikon 300mm PF lens and it is excellent.Never owned a Sigma lens but have enjoyed looking through this thread.
Thank you Sir. The lens is a very versatile one going from 105 to 600mm. I use it mostly on a tripod but can be handheld for shorter periods. As you can see the lens is very sharp and has excellent weather sealing. I would have no problem recommending it to anyone.Love all the bird shots Mike! Looks like a superb lens. jt
Thank you, I pop in once in a while. I had it, then I didn't, now I have it again.Hey, fantastic to see you back in these threads! All of your stuff is high quality--you've had this Siggy lens for quite sometime if I remember correctly--right. jt
Agreed--it's a beauty and one of those key pieces of glass which helped make the rise of Sigma possible. Back when that lens was made, many APS-c people were searching for a fast, "normalish" lens for their crop sensors--this lens perfectly filled that niche. It's amazing how far Sigma has come since then too. Hope we see more of you around the Cafe! Best, jtThank you, I pop in once in a while. I had it, then I didn't, now I have it again.
It's mounted on my D3200 as a nice light compact setup. Amazing lens.
Excellent use of that wonderful piece of Sigma glass! jt
