The Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG OS Telephoto Zoom makes telephoto shooting easy for many types of photography such as sport and nature. The lens is built with Special Low Dispersion Glass (SLD) elements to provide corrections for all types of aberrations. Its super-multi-layer coating adds to the excellence of images by reducing flare and ghosting, yielding high contrast images throughout the focal range.

Sigma's OS (Optical Stabilizer) can reduce shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. This lens rounded 9-blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur for out-of-focus areas of a picture. With a minimum focusing distance of 59.1" throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.9, this zoom is a good choice for close-up imaging. The compact construction of the lens helps make it good for travel and hand-held telephoto photography.

        I use this as a general walking around lens a good portion of the time. I have found that is has a quick focus rate on my NEX-7 with the LA-EA2 adapter. it takes great pictures at all ranges.

          Comments about Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG OS Lens for Sony Alpha & Minolta Digital Cameras:

          I love the OS function. It save me quite a fair bit of battery consumption since I can switch off my SSS on my A700. The focusing is slow at 300mm but guessed it pretty much the same for other brands of same genre.

          Managed to take some great bird's photograph. Heavy though but manageable. Great stuff!
