About Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG

Telephoto zoom lens with excellent cost performance and optimized for use with digital SLR cameras

Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal length. It's the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range.

SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass
We used SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass in this lens for excellent correction of chromatic aberration. This also corrects for fluctuation of aberration due to focusing. The new multi layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting, a common problem with digital cameras and also creates an optimum color balance.

Macro shooting with maximum magnification 1:2
The minimum focusing distance is 1.5 m/59 inches at all zoom settings. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2.

Without changing the distance between camera and subject, you can change the shooting magnification.

MINE WORKS GREAT

I'VE USED MINE FOR 2 YEARS, MOSTLY FOR NATURE WORK. THE SUPER MACRO IS GREAT. FROM SMALL SPIDERS TO BIG GATORS IT COMPARES WELL WITH MY CANON EF 70-300 IS USM. THE CANON HAS THE IS BUT THIS ONE HAS THE SUPER MACRO SO I USE THEM BOTH. I HAVE TAKEN WELL OVER 2000 PHOTOS WITH THIS LENS AND IT STILL WORKS WELL AND TAKES GREAT PHOTOS.

Awesome for extreme hobbiest!

I shoot a lot of nature, sports and outdoor photography. As long as you understand this lens' capabilities, you will not find better! The price point compared to other lenses makes it a must to keep in your camera bag. I simply don't find many situations that I can't use this lens!

Wow!

I use this mostly outside. Working outside, this lense performs flawlessly. Remember, there is NO IS, so those who complain about that being a problem, its not. Know what your buying. I have taken pictures with this thing from the upper deck at Jax Jaguars stadium and from Ny Yankees stadium and have gotten phoneomenal photos even at iso 800 with very little noise. If you want to take low light photos, and use shutter speeds below 100 at full zoom...well this would not be your lense. But, for the price, and as long as you know its limitations (mostly due to having no IS) this lens is GREAT.

was good at first!

This lens was great at the start, when I bought it for soccer pictures. Then it went crazy, auto focus almost completely stopped after 5 months of semi-pro usage.

Are you kidding me Sigma?

Sigma quality control has proven once again that you get what you pay for. If you are like me and require a lens to deliver even AVERAGE image qualiy, look elsewhere.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Hi I used Rebel XS Canon..so I wonder if this lense's gonna fit on my camera?
ALYSSA S  Yes, if you have an EF mount (which you should) this lens will work. Any EF mount lens will work. When buying an off brand always make sure its made for canon or has the right mount. P.S. I love this lens!
Shopper  will this work with a canon rebel?
KIM J  Yes it will. I bought it to use with my Canon rebel t3i.
Asher K  Hello! I was wondering how well this performs as a macro lens? I have a canon 50mm macro but to truly get close up shots, like of a bugs wings, I have to practically be touching the bug and by that point my camera or lens has blocked out all the natural light! I'm looking for a camera that will be good for very close up macro shots of bugs and other things in nature! I also need good clarity and quality will this do the job???
ROBERT C  Clarity is quite good, no noticeable distortion. Bugs? Depends on the size of the insect. I took shots of a Sphinx moth (humming bird moth) with great detail. This lens is not a microscope but does allow some distance from the subject-two to three feet is as close as it will focus. I'm happy with its versatility.
