CL) INT)70-300MM F4-5.6 CAN APO SUP
The Sigma APO 70-300mm f4-5.6 DG Macro Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras is a telephoto zoom lens with tele-macro functionality. Optimized for digital cameras, this high-performance lens has two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements in the front lens group and one in the rear lens group. It is able to shoot with maximum magnification 1:2 at the focal length of 300 millimeters. It's the ideal lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range.
The multi-layer lens coating and lens design reduce flare and ghosting, which is a common problem with digital cameras, and it also creates an optimum color balance through the entire zoom range. High optical performance is demonstrated throughout the entire zoom range. The lens features a switch that converts the lens to macro photography at focal lengths between 200 millimeters and 300 millimeters, with a minimum focusing distance of 37.4 inches. In normal mode the minimum focusing distance is 59.1 inches at all zoom settings.

One thing to note: many reviewers said the Macro/Normal switch is difficult to flip. It's not. Just make sure you're in the correct part of the zoom range to change the switch. If you're BELOW 200 mm and attempting to switch into Macro mode the lens will resist your attempts to change it and could cause damage I think. I'm pretty sure this is probably not the best thing for you to be doing to your lens anyway so pay attention to where your zoom setting is before flipping the switch. Set it in the middle between 200 and 300 then make your switch. This will lock the zoom adjustment to between 200 and 300 mm and you won't be able to adjust lower than 200 mm while the switch is engaged. Flip the switch back to Normal with the zoom about 250 again and you can then dial it back down to 70.
The picture I am posting with this review shows the stock lens zoomed out as far as possible, compared to the Sigma lens zoomed out as far as possible. Then I took a picture using the macro setting. Pretty awesome! Happy I bought it.
Now the good. For the price, I am very impressed with this lens. The build quality and finish are both higher than I expected. Image quality is pretty good (gets softer at higher zoom levels). The macro functionality is also a nice plus other other similar lenses. I did not have very high expectations for this lens, and wanted to hold out for a higher spec unit, but after using it for a week I wish I'd bought it sooner. It seems like an excellent first zoom lens that won't break the bank.
