Sigma 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

Blending a long reach with a convenient form factor, the Canon EF-mount 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Lens is a telephoto zoom within Sigma's Contemporary series that blends both a refined optical design with a compact and lightweight physical construction. On the optical front, this zoom utilizes four SLD glass elements to noticeably reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and color accuracy, and a Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied to increase contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.

Balancing the optics, the lens sports a Hyper Sonic Motor to produce quick, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override. An Optical Stabilizer also benefits handheld shooting by minimizing the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery. The physical design utilizes Thermally Stable Composite material for durability in a wide range of environments; both twist and push-pull zoom mechanisms are available for improved control over field of view; and a brass bayonet mount also offers rigidity and mounting precision.

As part of the Contemporary line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve a balance between convenience and performance, and meshes a compact, lightweight build and versatile handling with notable optical attributes.
Telephoto zoom lens is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 160-640mm equivalent focal length range.
Four Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements are featured in the optical design and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy throughout the zoom range.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
Front lens element has been treated with a water- and oil-repellent coating to benefit working in harsh environmental conditions.
Nine-blade rounded diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
The integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realizes quick and quiet autofocusing, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
Optical Stabilizer system minimizes the appearance of camera shake to benefit making sharper imagery when shooting handheld.
In addition to a conventional twist mechanism for adjusting the zoom position, a push-pull movement can also be used for faster movement.
The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, along with traditional metals, for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations.
The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability. Additionally, rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount design to render it dust- and splash-resistant.
Compatible with optional TC-1401 and TC-2001 Teleconverters to effectively extend the reach of the lens to 140-560mm f/7-9 or 200-800mm f/10-12.6, respectively.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

Sigma 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 reviews

100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance I've just tested my Sigma with abt 200 pics with my Canon 70D, (APSC sensor), in several light conditions. The result was awsome taking into consideration cost/product relation. Excellent resolution and definition, including wide open. Barely detected distortion at corners with 100% crop. Focusing was fast and �silent!. Probably not so good with fast continuous moving objets in continuous mode, (abt 6 fps with my camera). Anyway, i'm very pleased with overall performance, far compared with my old loved canon 70-300 is. Finally, should be nice to have a tripod ring, specially after one hour of handholding... Congratulations to SIGMA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sharp- I would purchase again! I did several trial runs and especially using hand held and found this lens to be very sharp. The only feature I have found not to work is using a remote cord on a tripod- the focus does not seem to work if the camera is set up for back button focus. All my other lenses work fine in this mode. Works fine on a tripod and remote with a regular focus set up.. I did use a 2 second delay with the back button focus and that works fine. The lens is sharp at 400mm and at a wide open f stop. I have several friends that are considering this lens- A great buy in my book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sigma's got a game changer. Of course, most people are interested in how this compares to the Canon 100-400 II lens. I did a head to head with the two lenses, and I honestly can't tell the difference between the two in terms of image quality. You lose a small amount of light, it focuses maybe a bit slower than the Canon, and it's not weather sealed, but for me those are a small price to pay for a lens that is smaller in all dimensions (and a pound lighter), has similar image quality, and costs about 60% less. Strongly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Small, Light, and Competes with the 'Whites' It's about a third slower than it's very expensive and heavy counterparts yet performs extremely well. It's built well yet is fairly light weight and can be handheld for long periods of time rather easily. I've paired this with the MC-11 adapter for the Sony system and the image quality is quite nice even on the high MP A7RII. As far as focusing goes, it does pretty well. It's big brother (150-600) definitely has focusing issues with the MC-11 which I didn't find as prevalent with this. A couple tips for fellow Sony users... #1 - Use the limiting switch. I know, it's another thing you have to remember to do but it greatly helps the focusing speed . #2 - Use Continuous Lock-On AF. Something about this mode just works. I think it's because once the camera locks on it restricts the focusing distance which prevents the adapted lens from hunting. All-in-all, at 3x less the cost of the native Sony, I'm happy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great lens - needs a tripod ring/collar I rented this lens and absolutely loved the way it functioned. My biggest set back was the lack of a tripod collar. This is a deal killer for me as I go on a lot of nature hikes and only being able to attach the lens/camera to my black rapid strap via the camera body is a no-go. Yes, it works, but it makes it hang awkwardly it isn't practical on a long hike. I would have gladly paid $50-$100 more for this lens with a tripod collar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than expected I bought this lens to use on a Canon 6D. I also have the Sigma 150-600 C that I have been very pleased with. I have used this lens on my 6D, 70D and T3i. It pairs very well with each of them. I did in camera MFA on the 6D and 70D and it took very little adjustment on both. The lens is light weight and build quality is very good. Zoom is by twist or push/pull and the hood is constructed to assist when using push/pull. Image quality is very good throughout the range at max f stop, but I normally shoot at 7.1 or 8.0. Image stabilization, OS, is excellent when placed in Dynamic mode. OS seemed to wander a bit in default mode. Cannot really tell the difference between fast focus mode and default mode. Both are very good. The lens is good enough that I am considering my Canon 400mm f5.6 L. Could not be more pleased. The lack of a tripod ring does not bother me as I bought it to use hand held with the 6D.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with the sharpness and image quality. Part 2 I've used this lens 3 times at this moment. B&H is so kind to send me a product review email invitation. Allow me to upload more images done by this lens. No PP or sharpening for all the pictures. only cropped and resized to around 2400x.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with the sharpness and image quality Sharpness: This lens or Canon 100-400mm iS II ? I've tried the sigma 100-400 only once and have rented the Canon 100-400 iS II twice. Here are some sample images that you can see for yourself. No PP or sharpening for all the photos. only cropped and resized to around 2400x. Features: OS(optical stabilizer) works well, Focus limiter switch, Zoom lock switch, custom mode switch(you need to purchase their USB dock). AF speed: I used AF-C(Al servo in canon's term) with single AF point to take pics of birds. Canon might be slightly faster but I'm not 100% sure. No tripod collar: Some of the images below were done by handheld shooting. but I forgot which one(s). If you want the tripod collar, SigmaTS-31 could be your best bet. Cape Cod Don shared his TS-31 experience under the product review(B&H). Sigma Teleconverter compatibility: In short, you may be a little disappointed. Allow me to copy what they printed in the manual: This lens can be used as TC-1401 1.4x or TC-2001 2x. .... blah blah... With TC-1401, it's possible to shoot with AF. Focus accuracy is not ensured when the focal length scale is more than 200mm Overall, this lens will give you lots of fun without breaking your bank.
