Sigma 300 f 2.8 fore Nikon


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


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


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 & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

johan k  Is the lens good for shooting out of hand?
Andrew R  That would depend on your shooting and lighting conditions as well as your subject matter. A brightly lit scene should allow for high enough shutter speeds to minimize motion blur from hand holding the lens. Bear in mind that the longer the focal length, the higher the shutter speed you'll need to keep the scene reasonably sharp. In this case, anything less than 1/250 sec would likely require a support such as a tripod or monopod.
Shopper  Is this lens sealed against moisture and dust?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, I don't believe so. Dust/moisture protection is not indicated.
Shopper  Can this lens be used with Nikon AF-S Teleconverters?
