Sigma's 70-300mm f4-5.6 APO DG Macro is one of several tele zoom lenses. It is a compact Apochromatic tele zoom lens incorporating two Special Low Dispersion glass elements in the front lens group, plus one Special Low Dispersion glass element in the rear lens group, to minimize chromatic aberration.

This Tele-Macro Zoom lens is capable of focusing down to 1:2 (half life-size) reproduction ratio at 300mm focal length with superb optical quality. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm. The lens materials used in this product are lead and arsenic free ecological glass.

The improved DG lens design corrects for various aberrations. This lens is specially coated to get the best color balance whilst cutting down on ghosting caused by reflections from the digital image sensor.

    Comments about 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro Autofocus Lens for Sigma Cameras:

    This is a poorly made, cheap feeling lens with a very soft focus. Mounting on a Sigma SD14 camera is not quick (this is a problem with Sigma's design of the bayonet mount). The autofocus is very slow and erratic; the overall poor optical properties of the lens create a soft focus effect even when precisely manually focused. This is not a good lens for high-speed activities, rough handling or precise work. The lens can not handle well anything but front lit situations, all others bring in flare, hazing or low contrast even with the lenshood or filters attached.

    When I say that a "pro" is consistent output I mean consistently poor quality. At least I know that the images are best used for scrapbooking only.
