4.0 out of 5 stars Sigma 70-300 OS December 26, 2009
Style Name:Nikon AF Mount Digital SLR Cameras
I have only had 2 days to play with this lens, but so far am impressed with it's performance. I bought this mainly for outdoor use as I have a Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR lens for indoor shooting. I simply do not want that mammoth lens on my camera when hiking, etc., especially since fast aperture is not necessary in good light. This one looks like it will do nicely. Focus is pretty fast - hunts a little in lower light at telephoto, but that's pretty common for most lenses of this type. Image quality is very good so far. Some very minor fringing in a few of the shots (not an issue with JPEG's from my D90 because it automatically removes most CA). I'll shoot some RAW shots outdoors when I get a chance to see if it is anything to worry about, but so far it appears to be acceptable. Focus is extremely accurate - dead-on on every shot taken (no front focus issues that some Sigma lenses have). OS is also VERY impressive. I'd say really close to Nikon's best VRII lenses. I took a couple of 1/4 sec. shots handheld with only my elbows braced against my ribs, at full telephoto, and the shots were perfectly sharp. You can see the image start to float when the shutter is half-pressed, so you know the stabilizer is working. Lens mounts snugly onto the camera and has a good, sturdy metal mount like the better Nikon lenses have. Fits perfectly. I like the size and weight compared to the Nikon equivalent (it is somewhat more compact). The only drawback is that the lens is not internal focusing like the Nikon (which probably accounts for the compactness). This means that the lens hood must be a round one (not a petal hood, which I prefer) because the end of the lens rotates as it focuses. Read more ›

Style Name:Canon AF Mount Digital SLR Cameras|Verified Purchase
First a few words of caution about this review: Newb to dSLR's here!

I recently made the decision to get a dSLR due to my recent frustration with a point-and-shoot at the Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. I just couldn't get a picture of what I was seeing. No fiddling with the point-and-shoot would capture it.

I purchased the Canon Digital Rebel XSi 12.2 MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens (Black) from Amazon. WOW! What a difference this intelligent and capable piece of art can make. I read reviews that said shoot with it for a bit until you decide what you like to shoot before getting an additional lens. I took that advice and after a couple of weeks, decided I wanted a zoom with a bit of reach. After much trepidation due to the expense, I decided on a 70-300mm. In researching, I found the Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 DG OS SLD Super Multi-Layer Coated Telephoto Lens for Canon AF Mount Digital SLR Cameras. I just couldn't justify the additional expense of the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens for Canon EOS SLR Cameras. Both seemed to have the same basic features with the Canon having USM and better reputation and slighty better reviews. The Sigma, however, seemed to hold its own in reviews especially for this amateur.

After having the Sigma for better than a week and being quite impressed (again an amateur's point of view), I began wondering just how much better the Canon could be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Nice Telephoto Lens, Especially for the Price January 14, 2010
Style Name:Pentax AF Mount Digital SLR Cameras|Verified Purchase
Camera:
I'm the proud owner of a Pentax K20D, which is also my first DSLR (and SLR in general).

Experience:
Took up photography this past summer (summer 2009), but I've put a lot of time and research into it so far. But I'm far from a professional, of course.

Previous Lens(es):
Pentax 16-45mm f/4.0 SMC PDA ED AL Zoom Lens for Pentax and Samsung Digital SLR Cameras which, by the way, I have been pleasantly happy with so far as my standard lens. It's also great for me personally, because of my landscape/panorama interest.

Ownership Time:
~A week

Review:
This lens performs its duty well. I'll break the review down into further sections:

Auto Focus Feature: It focuses fairly quickly, smoothly, and accurately in decent light, and hunts around for a little bit in low light settings (took it into my windowless bathroom and left a crack in the door), but not as much as other consumer (price-wise) telephoto lenses.

Auto Focus Sound: To me it's a pretty soft sound/not too loud, but you will notice it.

Optical Stabilization (OS): Works amazingly and wonderfully, and it can stack with the anti-shake feature built-in to the Pentax body. Slight caveat though-- it makes this high pitched humming sound when it's working, maybe not audible to older ears (no offense here), and definitely not audible in louder areas such as sports events, but when you're using it quietly indoors-- you might have a slight problem with those sitting next to you. You do get used to it after a bit though, and it stops as soon as you stop using the OS feature (finish the shot/stop pressing the shutter half-way).

EXCELLENT LENS FOR A 100 - 300MM. A SOLID LENS, SMALL ENOUGH TO CARRY, CAN BE USED AS A STANDARD 100 MM, LONG ENOUGH FOR A TELEPHOTO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great lens for travel.
Already have the Nikon, but it is just too heavy to take on extended trips with airfare. This lens fits the bill and is really a nice lens, too. Much lighter.
