Style Name: Canon SLR Cameras Verified Purchase
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.

Style Name: Nikon Mount
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'.

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.

Style Name: Canon SLR Cameras Verified Purchase
A little over a month ago I bought a Sigma 300 mm f/2.8 EX DG IF HSM APO telephoto lens for my 7D Canon camera at Amazon.com. When I received the parcel the first thing I noticed was that the vulnerable lens was rapped in three (3!) carton boxes one-over-the-other to protect it successfully during shipment! Then I found that the lens came with a beautiful, strong and padded webbing pouch with shoulder strap and two filters (an ultra violet and a Polaroid filter) plus a tripod mount. The filter holder of the lens has a sprocket-wheel that enables me to turn the Polaroid filter in the correct position. Great! The use of the lens is easy going. But most important is: the results are really breath taking. The lens it self looks very nice. So nice that all my photographer friends tell me they are jealous at me for having a 300 mm lens with all these features. So far this is the third Sigma lens I bought, and I am really satisfied with what they bring me. Original Canon lenses are not better, they are more expensive and they have no extras, while Sigma lenses almost always come with extras.

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.
