Sigma 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

Sigma's 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO-M DG Macro Lens is one of several tele-macro zoom lenses. It is a compact Apochromatic tele-macro 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. 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 while cutting down on ghosting caused by reflections from the digital image sensor.

Macro photography with a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300mm focal length
Switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2

    Sigma 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro Lens for Canon EOS Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 101.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a keeper I went looking for the Sigma 70-300 f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro lens because of astrophotos I have seen taken with it. My limited experience with it so far is very pleasing. I used it to take long shots in daylight and they came out great. Then I used it to shoot Jupiter in Sagittarius at both 70mm and 300mm. First I must say that I am impressed that my Canon XTi was able to autofocus on Jupiter at both the 70mm and 300mm settings. Then, I am very happy with the nice round stars in all four corners at 70mm and 300mm. So far I have only used it on a camera tripod at exposures up to 10 sec. I plan to mount the camera and lens piggyback on my 8 telescope for some deep exposures.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens for Price! I bought this lens and tested it right away, knowing after reading reviews that it might not be the sharpest lens on the market. However, for the price I was pleasantly surprised! Everything I had read is true - auto focus is a little slow, not the best in low light, etc. but much better than I expected. I purchased with the intent of returning if I wasn't completely happy. After a day of tests, I am more than happy to keep this lens and recommend it to others. The Macro feature is an added bonus. Again, the price is the key point. If you have $ plus to spend on glass, by all means get something better. If you want something within the focal range this offers for less than $, this is the one to get!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for the budget. Okay, fyi, I am college student who is not willing to spend more than $500 for single lens. (Although i want to, its just difficult to spend that kind of money on single lens.)But, this lens literally fits perfect on my budget and do the great job as it suppose to. Obviously, the quality, specially if the zoom goes over 200mm, will be the main issue compare to those high-level lens, but if you know how to control your lens and camera, you will able to manage and get the best result out of it. There is no better telephoto lens that is under $200 or even $400 than this one.Simply, this is $ lens and do the great job as telephoto lens. ( DO NOT COMPARE THIS LENS WITH THOSE $700, $1000 LENS )Also, lens comes with lens bag and hood.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck. So, in a nutshell, its better then any Canon kit lens. But don't expect L glass quality here. I got this used, (+9), build quality is decent. I like the finish Sigma uses. The lens switches feel a little cheap, the focus motor is quick, but its not a Canon USM lens. AF and IQ are good on my 7D. I got this mainly for the macro function. Keep in mind, you'll need to be at least a good meter away from the subject when 200-300 macro mode is used. The macro switch is tricky, at first I thought it was broken, but after READING THE DIRECTIONS, I learned that the lens must be manually focused back to infinity, and THEN you can switch the lens out of macro mode - and turn the zoom ring back past 200 (to 70). I don't like the rotating front element, it reminds me of the feel of my cheap Canon 50mm f1.8. Only its smoother. But the AF will make the nose jump a little and zip.. zip.. zip... zip.. around when locking on. Tried out a few moon shots with a tripod, I was happy. Took a macro shot of my dog, I was happy. While its not as solid feeling as my 70-200 Canon USM F4L, its actually got better reach, and the macro function is icing on the cake. Since the 7D can shoot noise-free high ISO, the F5.6 is not a problem at all. Sharpness at the center is on par with my L glass, but the corners suffer a bit at the 300 end of the scale. Then again, this lens is half the price, and used, it was even less. Its lighter and more compact then the Canon 70-200. This would make a great addition for sports or wildlife for a shooter with a modern body. Its a nice plus that it comes with a padded carry bag, and a lens hood.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality lens! Excellent quality lens. Obviously is slow (f4-5.6) but for newest cameras with hi ISO values (3200-6400), you will be satisfied if light is not enough. You will notice the lack of Image Stabilization, specially if you try to use for video. Of course, you could fix it using a tripod. The Macro mode is excellent. The non-chromatic aberration is also noticed here. It's the best option if you don't want to spend more than 2 grants.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so good wide open Uses: Kids sports, local news and portrait. Good: Light solid build. Decent focus speed for price. Bad: Not so sharp below 5.6. I first thought is was me, but then tested lens with tripod at different apertures. At 8.0 it was very sharp, but below that it was significantly less sharp. Wide open was relatively useless. Recommend: To hobbyist.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I have been using this lens now for 3 weeks. When I first put it on and captured a Black Capped Chickadee with the telephoto, I was amazed at the clarity and sharpness of the image. I sent it to a friend of mine and he was impressed too since he mostly uses L glass. The macro is a little more difficult but great. You need to use a tripod...definitely. I tried at first without a tripod but simply could not get a really sharp image in macro, but once I got it on the tripod all the images were inside the focal plane and very, very sharp. I do have some awesome macro flower and bug shots. Of course this is not a good lens for low light. I would highly recommend this lens if you are interested in macro photography as well as telephoto. You can't beat the price either. It's inexpensive and you have a lot covered with one lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for everything I bought this lens just in time to use at a Mets game last week. I was in the middle tier, behind third base. I could catch Hernandez winding up his pitch, Reyes diving, and Wright throwing the ball to home. I also used it in class and shot one of our trees blooming from 40 feet away. The flowers came out great and really bright. Problems Encountered: The autofocus is slow, I just use manual focus all the time. Also, the zoom is backwards from Canon's so it's kind of weird zooming in and out. When mounted to my camera body, it wiggles a little.
