I think they speak to the quality of this lens.

I almost paid a lot more to get the Nikon 300 2.8 prime lens but I couldn't justify it because of the savings I had with buying this lens.
The color saturation, clarity and sharpness of the images was fantastic.

First of all I did NOT purchase this lens through Amazon. I opted to rent the lens first from LensRentals which has an arrangement with SuperDigitalCity to credit three day rentals toward the purchase of the lens. This "try to buy" program worked best for me since I was contemplating replacing my beloved Canon EF300mm f2.8 IS L lens with the Sigma.

I am a full time commercial photographer who specializes in live performance as well as publicity photography for theatre, dance and music. I originally purchased the Canon 300 to give me extra reach beyond my normal workhorse the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L II lens. What I found is that without zoom capabilities I used the 300 less often than I had anticipated. At a 4300.00 purchase price (I bought this through Amazon) the ROI on the lens was very low.

I had NEVER considered a third party lens simply because my livelihood and reputation depends on accurate focus, great color and my images are utilized to promote performances on billboards, magazines and other marketing collateral. My trust has always been with Canon L glass. I had read The Digital Picture's review of the Sigma and decided to rent the unit. I have always trusted Bryan's assessment of gear and it seemed wise to rent to buy before I sold my beloved Canon 300.

I rented the Sigma for five days to cover three separate out of town live performance production sessions. I should note that I did NOT rent the USB dock, but used the lens as it was configured from the rental company.

The primary reason I use a 300mm focal length is to be able to be far enough back in the theatre to ensure that my elevation level is even with the stage. High impact live theatre imagery is achieved by immersing the viewer into the frame and the angle is very important.

I wanted the option of having the 300mm focal length at f/2.8 but I just couldn't justify buying both a 300 and 400 prime, because I honestly thought it would be kind of dumb to be honest. That's when I came across this monster. I was a little doubtful at first since the Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 I received was an absolute disaster, but this lens is incredible. It's been my go-to lens for just about all types of sport photography.

First off this thing is SHARP, yes even wide open. The bokeh is beautiful and clean. It gets even better as the apertures get smaller (higher f/stops for those who don't quite understand the ridiculous way aperture is measured.)

I won't beat around the bush, this thing is HEAVY. You'll want a monopod or a seat to rest your elbow on if you're going to shooting with it for a while. But else would you expect from a lens with this focal range and aperture?

The OS (image stabilization) seems to work just as well as Canon's, not that it's relevant when shooting sports. I leave it off most of the time. Regardless though, when I have needed it, it does work well. The AF is very quick and responsive, maybe a tad bit slower than the staple 70-200 f/2.8 l IS II. The best part of this though, is that if you buy a separate software/usb adapter, you can make 2 custom AF settings, which I have taken full advantage of. I've made one that focuses with speed being the main factor, one that has accuracy as the main factor, and the standard one being in the middle.

All in all, I LOVE this lens for sports on either my full frame or crop sensor body. The unique focal range/aperture make this lens an incredible addition to any photographer that relies on long, fast lenses and large apertures.

Don't believe me? Check out the photos I uploaded to the customer pics section. I think they speak to the quality of this lens.

I've been rocking the Canon 300mmF2.8L on the sidelines for several years now and it has served me well but I was always disappointed when the action came at me or when an spectacular catch happened just feet away from me, I'd end up missing an awesome shot because it was just too tight. I've tried using a second body with a shorter lens but it still wasn't quick or as spontaneous as I'd like. (and since I don't shoot for SI, I felt like a bit of a douche carrying two cameras around).

So this season I picked up the newly released Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM. Yes, that's a fixed 2.8 aperture, image stabilized, tele to super-tele zoom! I admit, I had my doubts, I've been burned by the inferior image quality of 3rd party lenses before and vowed 'never-again'. I've also read enough reports of just how poor previous versions of this lens (I think this is the 3rd) was that I never really considered it. But in 2013, Sigma has stepped up thier game and started putting out some really fine lenses. Their new 35mm F1.4 prime is truly a 'best in class' lens and has got owners of Canon and Nikon 35s asking themselves why they spent more and got less. So when I read that this lens would be built to the same standards, my curiosity was piqued.
So how did it perform? At first, poorly. I shot two games with it and had a really low 'keeper' rate due to out of focus shots. But after doing a little research, I found that Sigma programs the AF system to prioritize focus accuracy over focus speed. So I used the Sigma USB dock to setup a custom profile for the lens - (there are two custom profile slots that can store different AF speed profiles and AF Microadjustments which is Sigma's work around for the Camera manufacturers not including 3rd party lenses in their in-camera micro focus adjustments).
