About Sigma 300-800mm

From 300mm telephoto to 800mm ultra-telephoto, this Sigma lens provides a constant fast maximum aperture and is optimized for digital SLR cameras.

This lens covers the telephoto range from 300mm to the ultra-telephoto range up to 800mm. By continuously varying the angle of view from 8.2° to 3.1°, the lens takes a lot of the footwork out of picture composition.

The multi layer lens coating and lens design reduce flare and ghost, which is a common problem with digital cameras and also creates an optimum color balance.

Two ELD glass elements in the front lens elements reduce chromatic aberration to a minimum and also ensure sharp, quality images of high contrast.

The HSM models provide silent, high-speed and precise auto-focusing with full time manual focus override.

It also features a drop-in 46mm filter holder in the rear part of the lens barrel, which can be rotated to facilitate the use of filters, including a polarizing filter.

Since focusing and zooming do not change its overall length, this lens is easy to hold and use. In addition, since the front of the lens does not rotate, a circular polarizing filter can be easily attached and used.

When this lens is used with the 1.4x EX or 2x EX Apo Tele Converters (optional), it becomes a 420-1120mm F8 MF lens or a 600-1600mm F11 MF lens respectively.

Not in my swing...oh YES in your swing!

Oh my, the reach of this lens, combined with the 2x crop factor on Olympus cameras and the relatively high speed make this PERFECT for photographing Tiger Woods in his backswing. With this lens, I'm able to shoot him from 5 or 6 holes away, making my mirror slap almost completely silent. If you want to get golf photos that NOBODY else can get, you need this lens!

Sigma 300-800mm f/5.6

By

I was looking at this lens for about 1 year and finally got it. I always test the sharpness of the lens and this lens at 800mm is sharp. It is heavy, but if you have a good heavy tripod, you will get some great sharp images. A great lens but not a carry around type lens.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can a Canon 2 x extender be used with this lens?
Andrew R  Sigma recommends their APO 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters. Bear in mind that using a teleconverter will likely hamper or even prevent the use of the camera's auto focus system due light lost through the TC.
