Sigma 300 f 2.8 fore Nikon

By

from Taunton, MA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

It is a fast sharp lens, must use Sigma converters with it, the lock on the focus ring easy to unlock , then you get an error message from nikon cameras, once relocked no problem

Great wildlife lens

By

from Minnesota  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.

Very capable lens

By

from Seattle  -  Photo Enthusiast

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.

Questions about this item:

shiru g  Please tell me whether this lens has IS (Image Stabilization)capability or not? Thanks.
ELAINE W  GO TO the product information page and your answer should be included ... if it does not say it has IS capability, then the answer is NO
shiru g  Elaine, Different companies used different name for that. Canon use "IS" Nikon use "VR" So I dont know what Sigma used. That's why I asked from you. As you said I can GO TO the product information page. But let me know the name sigma used for that. Then I will understand.
Michael M  Will the canon 1.4 and 2.0 extender work with this lense?
Michael M  Thanks
