Sigma 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

The Sigma 70-300mm 4-5.6 DG Lens is the ideal compact and economical choice for a telephoto zoom lens. By incorporating an autofocusing motor into the lens itself, it can now autofocus with all Nikon DSLR cameras (including the D40, D40x, etc.). In addition, with the motor built into the lens, focusing will be quieter and more responsive. Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:4 maximum magnification at focal lengths shorter than 200mm, from 1:2.9 to 1:2 at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm, and 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300mm focal length.

It is the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range.

The DG lens design corrects for various aberrations. This lens is specially coated to get the best color balance while also cutting down on ghosting caused by reflections from the digital image sensor.

    Sigma 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Autofocus Lens for Nikon F Mount Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 132.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for I got this for two reasons:1. I needed a long zoom.2. I didn't have $.The pictures come out good enough for me, even in lower light and at the full 300mm zoom. The autofocus is painfully slow and noisy.If this was how I earned my living, I would be throwing my money away on this. But it's not, and I didn't.It's a fun zoom that I can use to capture some neat pictures of my kids dancing and playing sports, or the birds at the bird feeder while sitting on my back porch. It also makes other parents think I'm awesome when I show up at the sports field with this giant piece of glass dangling from my neck.For this, I'm not complaining about a $ lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review of the 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro This lens is pretty phenomenal for its price. It has great zoom and the autofocus works fairly well even though I use the Nikon D3100 which isn't supposed to support AF with this lens. The Macro also works wonderfully well and I have taken pretty good pictures with this lens. The only problems with this lens is at a moderately high f stop and such a high zoom, image stabilization would only seem necessary but it doesn't provide it. It's sometimes necessary to sacrifice some clarity by boosting up the ISO but the lens itself is amazing for it's price. At around a shutter speed at 1/60 it should catch the image even at 300mm. A tripod is still recommended.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from For what it is, it does the job. For a cheap, telephoto full frame/ 35mm lens, this lens is good. The image quality is good, and the macro setting is a nice added feature. However, the autofocus on this lens is very bad. The lens has a built-in focusing motor which means it can focus on many Nikon D/SLRs including those which don't have autofocus motors built into the camera body. The auto-focusing however is very loud, and very, very slow. If you are photographing wildlife, birds, sports, or any fast moving subjects this is not a good lens. Most times this lens cannot seem to tell what is in focus and what isn't and I find myself switching to manual focus most of the time. But as I said earlier, if you're on a budget and want a full frame 300mm lens, this does the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice for the price I was hesitant about this lens at first because of the price but after a couple test shots I was excited for the quality it produced. It's not a professional lens but it's great for people like me who can't afford 3k lens and use it as a hobby besides it's not the lens that makes an image great.I previously was using a 55-200mm from nikon and think I'm liking this lens for just a tad bit more zoom range and the detailing seems better but just a tad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoying this lense I am a recreational photographer, my father is a pro and recommended Sigma as a good brand as I was looking for a lense for my newly acquired Nikon D3100. I have used this lense to take some outdoor shots and some indoor shots of my son playing basketball and I am really loving the pictures it is taking. The auto focus reponse has been great and the photos are really good. I will admit with indoor I could probably add a better flash and that would improve things but for my purposes the photos are fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice lens, good price I am in no means a pro, just a home hobbyist that enjoys taking photos of my kids and various items for personal use. So far I have really liked this lens. It performs as it should and takes good looking photos using a Nikon D3100. I did get a monpod for those long range shots that need a little stabilization and in tandem they have worked very well. I would recomend this lens for any one that is looking for a good general use lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens if you know how to use it This lens completely fits my intended use for it-- an inexpensive macro lens. Since the macro is at 200-300mm, you'll have to take pictures with a short shutter speed. I found that at 300mm, you can't take pictures slower than 1/200th or 1/250th second. At 200mm, I even did 1/100th second and pictures came out fine. In general, I try to take pictures at 200mm and 1/200th second. When taking pictures with a tripod, I had to use a timer because my hand shook the camera when I took the picture. If you don't want to deal with these issues, spend 3 times as much for a 110mm macro lens from sigma. The zoom lens is normal. It is a bit loud when it focuses, but I don't care. Some reviews wrote that there isn't a switch on the lens to toggle between auto focus and manual focus. This isn't true. There's both a toggle for auto/manual focus and macro/regular photography on the lens itself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Lens Regardless of the manufacturer, this is a great lens. I've been using this lens with my Nikon D60 for 6 years. I've had no issues and no complaints with it. The reviews I've read, regarding the auto focus slowness, I believe is from those people who don't have patience to wait. When I'm zooming in at least 200 - 300mm, I want the lens to take it's time and focus on the subject so my result is a quality, professional shot. Why would you need a fast auto focus on something hundreds of feet away? Taking an action shot? Then get close with a fast auto focusing lens. Well worth the price. I took some amazing shots at the Grand Canyon and I am very satisfied. I would recommend this lens to anyone in the market for a decent priced zoom lens. Whether you are a beginner or professional, I feel this lens will not disappoint you. The photo accompanying my review was shot using the lens.
