Comments about Sigma Sigma 300mm f/2.8 APO EX DG Auto Focus Telephoto Lens for Nikon AF Cameras:

In looking for a cost effective, high quality lens for wildlife & sports, I settled on the Sigma. While not perhaps quite the overall glass quality of a comparable Nikon lens, the cost difference more than makes up for it. Photos are sharp and, when used with the 2X tele-converter, I'm able to shoot most wildlife that I find. A great lens for the price.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 300mm f/2.8 APO EX DG Auto Focus Telephoto Lens for Nikon AF Cameras:

I bought this lens mainly for wildlife photography. I use it mostly with the Sigma APO 2x teleconverter and I get some very sharp pictures. Occasionally I wish I had image stabilization but with the fast shutter speeds I use most of the time I do not miss it much. I use it with a monopod except for in flight birds. I had to get a new monopod head and the only heavy duty one I could find was by Really Right Stuff.
