Product Description

Style: Nikon Mount

This lens is a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture telephoto optimized for digital SLR cameras. The multi layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting, which is a common problem with digital SLR cameras. ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements reduce chromatic aberration to a minimum and also ensure sharp, quality images of high contrast. It creates an excellent image quality for both 35mm film and digital SLR cameras. A 46mm drop-in filter holder in the rear part of the lens barrel facilitates the use of different filters, including a polarizing filter. The HSM models (Sigma, Nikon and Canon mounts) provide fast, silent AF function as well as full- time manual focus override. It incorporates an inner focusing system, which enables the overall length of the lens to stay the same while focusing, ensuring convenient handling and ease of use. By simply adding an optional APO teleconverter (sold separately), this lens can be used as a 420mm F4 AF ultra-telephoto lens with a 1.4X EX teleconverter, or a 600mm F5.6 AF ultra-telephoto lens with a 2X teleconverter.

The images this Sigma lens produce are great and nice smooth Bokeh.

It also works great with the in-camera image stabilization on the Sony DSLR cameras.

I bought this lens primarily for sports photography and in no way has it disappointed. I had been using my Canon 100-400 but it was jus too slow, though I like the reach it afforded me for times when the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 just wasn't long enough. So I took a shot on this beauty since it was much more affordable than the Canon equivalent and haven't regretted it for a second. I have taken my best pics with this lens; the creamy bokeh this lens creates is just gorgeous; its also fast and accurate and I get gorgeous results reliably.

I have used this lens at the dirt bike track, auto racing track, and drag strip, and it has performed admirably every time. I just put in a rental order for the Sigma 1.4x extender for my trip out to Laguna Seca for the Moto GP, so I'll report back with how the lens responds to the extender. My guess is that it will be just fine.

The Sigma 300 F2.8 lens for Sony/Minolta is a great lens for the price. I could not afford The Sony/Minolta equivalent as it was over twice the price. The color,contrast and resolution of this lens is excellent and works great with 1.4 and 2.0 Sigma teleconverters. It also works great with the in-camera image stabilization on the Sony DSLR cameras.

I wanted more reach for wildlife photography wanted so I settled on the this lens for use with my Nikon D90. I find it to be sharp even with the 2X teleconverter. I use it with a monopod mostly except for birds in flight. It is heavy and the only monopod head I could find to handle it is the one from Really Right Stuff. The build quality looks to be excellent. If they ever made a stabilized version, which they will one day, the big boys will be hurtin'.

I could not afford Nikon's VR 300mm lens so I picked this one up instead. I've routinely shot with Sigma's 1.4x Teleconverter and 2.0x TC attached and have gotten brilliant results. The lens is more than sharp enough wide open, even with the 2x TC on it. I often photograph birds and there is plenty of detail in the photos. This lens is simply brilliant.

Style Name: Minolta and Sony SLR Cameras Verified Purchase
I purchased this lens after renting the Sony G 300 f2.8. Only after reading the reviews of this lens and owning other Sigma EX lenses that I have been very happy using. I noticed that the autofocus was pretty noisy and a bit slower than the Sony lens. The images this Sigma lens produce are great and nice smooth Bokeh. It works great with the 1.4x and 2.0x Sigma EX teleconverter, but I had problems with the A900 with aperture priority, with the teleconverters mounted, the camera didn't remove the lower f stops like when I had the Sony lens mounted...with the Sony 1.4x teleconverter on the camera with the Sony lens, I was only able to open up to f/4. With the Sigma EX Teleconverters in use, I could select f2.8 and wasn't sure if it defaulted to the appropriate next available f stop for the situation, so if I had the 1.4x teleconverter in use and the camera set to f2.8 would it meter for f4? I know this is minor detail, but worth mentioning.

As a wildlife photographer the noise created by the autofocus was too much and I had to return it. I just purchased the Sony lens and 1.4x teleconverter since it has the SSM. If it weren't for those factors I would have kept the lens and enjoyed using it.
