Latest Review Posted Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG Macro
Out of the box, this lens felt a bit dubious in my hands - slightly sticky focus and zoom with a bit of slop/play in the focus mechanism. I guess you get what you pay for and it didn't cost a lot. Lens hood's not exactly 'elegant' and a little fiddly to deal with. Nice zip up pouch. On the camera, the thing that really stands out for me is the macro ability. Absolutely sharp as with no color fringing on the edges of the subject in focus. Brilliant for critters at night where I can stay 4 feet away but still fill the viewfinder with a frog and the flash has enough reach to light it up. At infinity, 300mm seems a bit soft, but at closer range seems very sharp. Unfortunately, it does focus beyond infinity which I always find a little annoying. Very good from 70-200. Cheap build aside, this lens should be capable of some really nice shots and value for money is brilliant for the images it provides.
