Scratching an itch.

otherwise known as LBA.

Has anyone done a direct comparison of the DA* 300mm f4 and the Sigma 100-300 f4 ?

Given that the 60-250 is not yet in captivity these look to be about the only two choices for quality images.

I have the Sig 135-400, but have got very frustrated with it (it has a place, but its limited) & the Tamron 70-300....which I am taking out right now to put to the 'sport' test as I only ever used it as a travel lens because of its light weight..
Cheers.

I too am keen to see the differences. The 100-300 is compelling for a zoom and the 60-250 too short IMHO.

The first shot is from yesterday with the Sig 135-400 @ 400mm.

The second shot is the Tamron 70-300 @ 300mm.

Say no more...except for the purple fringing.
I should have taken some shots with the Sigma @ 300mm, where it would perform quite well.

Anyway, for your information:
