Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporar... Overview

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 cameras, 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.
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.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
In addition to a conventional twist mechanism for adjusting the zoom position, a push-pull movement can also be used for faster movement.
Front lens element has been treated with a water- and oil-repellent coating to benefit working in harsh environmental conditions.
Constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. Additionally, a brass bayonet affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity. Additionally, rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount design to render it dust- and splash-resistant.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.
Compatible with optional Sigma TC-1401 1.4x and TC-2001 2x teleconverters.

Nice lens for the price

By Scott

I wanted the Canon 100-400 mkII but my wallet wouldn't go for it. I looked around and decided on the Sigma 100-400. Nice lens for the price. The Canon mount model does not come nor does Sigma make a tripod collar. I purchased a 3rd party tripod collar and it works fine. I'm not sure that the USB base dock was really worth the price. It might be if I needed to micro-adjust it but thankfully it is focusing fine and sharp for this pricepoint. I would recommend this lens.

Good option for EOS R

Compared to other 400s... test on Canon R 24 Mpix

I have had the Nikon 80-400 before.. it was just okay, especially if you were depending on the VR or were shooting any distance greater than 30 feet. The Sig does just great at varying focus distances and VR seems pretty decent.. example provided.. Pretty happy. I know iPhone 12 max is hard to beat for handy.. but the 400 is an 8xs compared to a 2.5 times in the phone. Again.. for less than half an iPhone... This pic is shot through a window.. i think that did not help it any.. but the lens is good and sharp. And focuses solidify at least on the canon mirror camera... good luck. Decent build too....

Sigma 100-400 on Canon RP

I read on the other reviews that the lens was a little slow to focus. On the RP it is snappy. So far.. very decent. Focus is quick, accurate and pics seem sharp. Sharper than my 70-300 USM anyway. Seems well built too. Had nikons for years and threw in the towel last year... So far happy with 24-105 L and the sigma 100-400. Glad I moved up.

Great Value for Cost!

I used this lens a lot in recent weeks traveling to Alaska. I am impressed with the quality of my pictures at a near full zoom range. I am older and weight was very important to me when looking for a zoom lens. I can shoot with this handheld for extended periods of time before my wrists start getting sore. I have had other zooms that I just can't carry. I absolutely love this lens and would buy again in a heartbeat!

400mm at a decent price

This is my first large lens. It seems to have a quality build and I haven't noticed any abnormalities. It seems to work well and focus OK with good speed. I bought the elefront tripod mount which fits and works well. I wish the hood had locking feature or more friction. I screws on and off with a loose thread fit. On a couple of occasions the act of sitting the camera down on my lap has unscrewed the hood and it has fallen off. I will probably modify myself to fix the problem. Other than that it seems like a high quality lens at a reasonable price and of course B&H customer service can't be beat. I've been a long time customer.

Nice telephoto lense !

By David

I've used this lense several times and I do like the results so far. I did have to use the dock to update the focusing firmware twice. After the second time I have positive assurance this lense is nice. It is lightweight, easy to zoom , and now focused correctly. I have obtained some great bird photos so far. You have to remember that this lense has 3 focus ranges and it's easy to forget which one you're using since 2 ranges are relatively short per se . Nevertheless it's a learning curve. The quality of my pictures compare to my Canon 70-200/ f2.8 ! I would recommend this lense to others because for $800 you can't go wrong. Just be sure you obtain the firmware dock when you purchase this lense. It's a global lense so people from all over the world are using it. Happy shooting!
