Pros: Versatile, addictive, weight, sharpness.

Cons: Noticeable drop in sharpness, combined with the Nikon TC-14E III in distances greater than 9m.

Opinion: This lens is simply my favorite of all those I have used. It's not the best, but it's so convenient to use! I use it relentlessly since its purchase. On FX, it allows portrait and street events for details. On DX, it allows the sport and the animal. On DX + TC-14E III, it covers the birds, although a little short and it loses 1 Diaph. Regarding the sharpness, I would say that it depends on several factors. From 1m40 to 3m, in proxy mode, with or without TC-14E III, on FX or DX, it's "Razor Sharp". And it's amazing to be able to photograph flying insects with such ease. (see my gallery) From 3m to 9m, according to my many tests, it is excellent, but especially without the TC-14E III, because with, the loss of sharpness is in my opinion quite noticeable. From 9m to 25m (but this is only my experience in the field), it becomes more average, because I think the image is significantly degraded by the multiplier. At the infinite, even a castle in clear weather for example, with multiplier, I would be much more critical on the quality of the image rendered. Of course, an AF setting is to consider and can really make the difference. (for me: D500 + 300PF + TC -1.4 = +6 AF). In comparison, I think that the AF adjustment of the Sigma by the dock is much more interesting, because it takes into account at least 4 key distances (16 for a zoom). Regarding the stabilizer, I find it very effective until 1/200. But it depends on each photographer and his ability not to add unnecessary shaking. ;) In conclusion, I would say that I find it EXTRAORDINARY. However, if you want to photograph small birds, make sure you have an approach as discreet as possible, because mounted on DX with multiplier X1.4, it gives 630mm, fully usable freehand ... but it is a bit short :(

Pros: Weight

Cons: Bit of a mixed bag with converters

Opinion: Recently purchased this lens as a welcome addition to my much heavier 300mm F/2.8 VR. I love this lens on either an APS-C or a fullframe camera. It's so much fun carrying a 300mm lens that weighs about the same as a 24-70mm F/2.8. IQ is great when stopped down a bit. When shooting wide open there is little DOF to work with. The 300mm seems to handle the 1.4 TC pretty well. When making use of the limiter there is not muching slowing down on the AF-speed. My 300mm lens seems to do best wide open (F/6.7) when using the 1.7 TC. In really low light situations I will still be using the much faster 300mm F/2.8 lens, but this beauty comes to use in almost every other situation.

Pros: Sharp

Cons: Weight

Opinion: I do the opposite bastian .... I bought this telephoto lens after careful reflection given its cost. Purchase to have him like me on the excursions saw his featherweight, but in the end and without taking shots overnight he started to " ciarloccare ". I've never had a such thing happen to me with telephoto lenses. This has led me to say that the lightness for telephoto lenses of this magnitude and higher is a handicap. Lightness leads to having a high fragility on this does not rain, in my way of seeing. It's not a 1 kg less that makes it easy for you to hike.

Pros: Weight, weight, weight

Cons: It suffers from overexposure in lateral light or backlight conditions.

Opinion: Great lens for everything, with the little weight becomes a lens to take with you. AF good, good color yield, very good sharpness (almost like the previous brother). With side lights and white subjects (even just light) tends to clip to the right burning whites, you have to be careful and take our hand otherwise you get washed and little engraved photos that can not always be corrected in post production. With this lens I keep a -0.7 exposure fixed to avoid burns. However, his weight and handling absolves him of everything. Recommended.

Pros: Weight, lightness, maneuverability

Cons: none, because the price depends on its uniqueness

Opinion: You can always carry it with you without problems, as in addition to weighing little, it has optical and stabilization qualities that allow excellent photos, less than 2.8 but not by much; However, these are two objectives with different costs and uses. The f/4 is also duplicated with the 1.4 without major problems (420 f/5,6). Indispensable for those who want to travel light but have an effective canvas.
