    Sigma 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Lens for Canon EOS is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 103.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best of the cheap This is a cheap lens. The AF is slow, there is plenty of distortion when shooting wide open, especially at 300mm. Most of the problems with this lens is at 300mm. It is soft, the corners are really bad. That said, stopping down to f11 really does help. But at 300mm and f11 on a cloudy day is going to require ISO's up to 3200. Here is the cool thing, the softness is not too big of a deal if your images are going on the web or small prints. And really, for this price it is very hard to beat. To dramatically jump in quality your looking at something like an EF 100-400 or Ef 300 f4, both around 10 times the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Budget Lens This lens provides a solid (almost true) macro solution for the cannon EOS mount at a great price. I bought the lens as a gift but did some test shooting with it first to see what it was all about. I had it paired to an older Cannon T3 and got very good results with it. Although it cant get in as close as a true macro lens for what most hobby/casual people are shooting, it works great. Considering the Cannon option is considerably more expensive it provides a great entry macro option I would suggest it to the casual user but if you are looking for a really 1:1 macro I would not advise it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy But Worth It I've only had the Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 DG Macro Lens for a few weeks and I can tell you it will be a favorite of mine. I currently use it on a Canon T3i. I haven't done a lot of macro photography but even my first few attempts with this lens, hand held in daylight, turned out nice and sharp. It is heavy though so I can see using it on a tripod more often then not. I would have given it 5 stars except for two things; 1) It is heavy and 2) It doesn't have image stabilization. The price though more than compensates for the minor drawbacks. I picked this lens because of the reviews and they were spot on. The color is good and the diffused backgrounds make for great shots..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was an excellent product I love this lens. I am relatively new to the digital photography age. My first camera was a point and shoot. I recently upgraded to my first DSLR - a Canon Rebel xti. I quickly found that I needed zoom lens capabilities as I was really wanting to get photos of my kids with their sporting events. I have taken hundreds of photos with my new Sigma lens and have gotten tons of compliments. This lens does an excellent job. I have had it for a few months now and it has not let me down. I will say that I shopped around and found other sites that were a little cheaper, but when I checked out their reputations, found that they weren't so honorable. I found nothing negative with B&H and will definately do business with them again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens for the money I bought this lens a little over a year ago and have used it extensively for animal/insect photography. It's a great lens for the money (at the time I was in school and couldn't afford much) or for a general use lens if you need a telephoto. My only complaint is it can get a little soft at the 300mm macro with the autofocus - I always manual focus when in macro. Also, it doesn't do well in low-light with the macro, unless you have a tripod. Overall, a great starting out lens for a telephoto/macro lens and the price can't be beat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great lens for the price ive had this lens for over six months now and have used it enough to say that it was one of my best buys. it is very sharp through the focal length and the macro feature is a wonderful bonus. i would NOT recommend this lens for sports or any motion shooting, as the AF is clunky and slow. once it locks on its great, but it takes a while, especially in dark lit situations. the AF is quite noisy as well. all in all, i am glad i purchased this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens for the Price I bought this lens to use for an all purpose outdoors type lens. To photograph scenery, and wildlife. So far it has far exceeded my expectations. It is a bit heavy to free hand with when shooting over 200 mm, but with a monopod or tripod it works extremely well.The auto focus works great for the amateur photographer, however, I quickly started focusing manually, to get the shots I wanted. The pictures come out very clear, and I will be looking at other Sigma lenses in the future. ...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens! Got the Sigma 70-300mm DG Macro to replace my Canon 75-300m usm as the Canon seemed soft and not clear and sharp as any of my other Sigma lenses! Well this one is also. Am now a happy puppy, as it's very clear, tack sharp and great color . From 70mm to 300mm. Love the Marco ability. It's fast to focus. Easy to zoom and smooth. I can't find anything that's in any way a problem or complaints.
