Pros: Superlative sharpness, boken, quality with 2x multiplier, very robust construction, the bracket comes in handy for transport being very heavy

Cons: High cost, weight (long walks are not recommended), lack of a focus limiter, FAST AF (but very far from L-series canons) and unfortunately not up to all situations on fast-moving subjects.

Opinion: What to say, once you buy the wallet for sure it is lighter, but its image quality gives great satisfaction. It's not for everyone, its weight really makes you feel, and carrying it with it sometimes was really gruelling, if mounted on monopod sits very well on the shoulder, and also the tripod bracket is very comfortable for transport. Too bad I don't have a focus limiter, and sometimes on fast scenes I missed some great scenes for this problem as the Af goes into tilt and does the whole lap before hanging up the subject, this for me is a big flaw in such a goal. Certainly if at the same cost the Af was on the same level as an L-series Canon would be the perfect target. Gives stratospheric bokens, holds up well the multipliers (2x in my case) Af slows down a lot though, but on subjects not in rapid motion churns out really remarkable files.

Pros: Sharpest, at least my copy, heavy (I like), fast AF and stabilizer top class.

Cons: footprint and maneuverability hands-free

Opinion: Extraordinary lens, heavy but well balanced, saturated colors and neutrals, af fast and stabilizer perfetto.rnse she weighed 3kg and was a real space-telescope as it would take forever behind, unfortunately, sometimes the convenience and practicality becomes necessary and this objective loses its plus.rni 300mm seem a little optimistic, compared several times with the Biancone if the beats hands down, sometimes I prefer images sigmone.rnUnico its limit as mentioned the weight and size, the weight that I also mentioned the virtues simply because we have the impression that he had in his hands the substance and having spent well over 2k to buy ... excellent lens!

Pros: Bright, great hiking and great for bird-watching and bird life.

Cons: heavy and expensive.

Opinion: When I bought it to replace my 100-400 I was impressed by the performance of color and definition. Taking it with me in the shed I realized that I would need to have both he and a fixed. Thanks to the brightness and the stabilizer I used without any problems even indoors as theaters and sports. Obviously we can not say that is a featherweight (about 3kg) and is also very eye-catching!

Pros: Bright and versatile.

Cons: think and very expensive

Opinion: Excellent lens for birdlife. It allows incredible shots. With the stabilizer can also take pictures indoors in theaters, museums, exhibitions, sporting events, etc ... The system focusing HSM is very quick and effective. Shame about the weight that is really so if coupled to a body such as 1d or 3DX becomes a rock, difficult to transport. In short, very good lens, if you have strong arms, back good ewd a good portfolio (costs about 2000 euro)

Pros: Sharpness, stabilizer, supports very well the TC ... and 'objective' male 'and then not for the "little arms"

Cons: Focus ring a little 'duretta, actual max mm 280/290

Opinion: After about six months of use with D7000 and D600 above with and without the two Tc sigma (1,4 / 2,0) I decided to give my opinion. Well I think this lens confirms what I had heard good comments from users: it has a versatility 'exceptional that is unparalleled in any competitor brand ... Indeed I have to say "that pay" lenses far more' specialized mother Nikon / Canon, leaving in his pocket to those who have the pleasure of having a lot 'of pennies to invest maybe elsewhere! We can mount the D7000 2x on keeping quality 'and speed' beyond expectations obviously in good light conditions. On D600 things improve as well, and thanks to the crop factor on the room you get an impressive range of focal lengths. With the 1, 4 have virtually no declines worthy of note at all focal lengths so you almost always keep it mounted. I use this lens in the shed (fixed or mobile) always on a tripod and I would say that does not lend itself to hunting itinerant given its weight. Thanks to it, however, I was able to photograph without stabilizer often well below the safety times without absolutely hitting the infamous micromoxed: for once the weight and size of a lens helps! rnAssolutamente recommended!
