Sigma 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

Sigma's 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro Lens is one of several tele zoom lenses. By incorporating the 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.

This lens is a compact Apochromatic tele 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.

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.

Macro photography with a 1:4 maximum close-up magnification at focal lengths from 70mm to 200mm and 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
The built-in autofocusing motor ensures quiet and high-speed auto focusing with full time manual focus override.
The lens materials used in this product are lead and arsenic free ecological glass

    Sigma 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro Lens for Nikon AF-D is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 148.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lense worth looking at, great value I've been 110% satisfied with this lense from Sigma. It focuses fast and typically focuses in the right spot on the first try. I needed something that would get me beyond my Nikon 200mmVR lense and this was an affordable way to do it and it does auto focus on the Nikon D40. Some are saying this lense is HSM, it is not. I don't see this as an issue, however. The macro feature works surprisingly well. I took this lense on vacation a couple days after I got it. Captured many excellent shots. The lense comes with a very nice case. Build quality is good. I did have the macro mode jam on me. It's important to review the instructions included with the lense.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the great price. For the price that you See $ I will tell you personally this is great lens, very fast focus -thanks to build in motor, sharp images if You hands are steady, great outdoor lens , beautiful colors,300mm is awesome big difference from 70-200mm. I try to shot my daughter running and I am impressed what this lens can do for $ I got some great shots. I also try birds flying and with my 3D tracking in my D90 I have great sharp shots of birds. I am happy to save around 1000$ for now. With the tripod this lens is great to shoot far objects and they very sharp. So if you can't get expensive telephoto get this lens and enjoy shoting far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens for the price I am loving this lens! The Sigma brand has brought me great quality, not just with this lens but with other lenses in the past. I shoot family, sports, nature shots and love the crispness of the pictures. The range of the zoom is perfect for those close-ups. I would have given this lens 5-stars but that would have meant perfection. The only drawbacks are that the lens is a little heavy and in some instances (high contrast in lighting when trying to focus, for example) that it's a little slow. But that does not deter me from still loving this lens. It does it's job and does it well, in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! 5 stars for price/performance. Obviously, this is not a pro grade lens, but instead of saving for a year+ to get the 300mm f/4 at $1200 this was a way to start shooting immediately. I shoot mostly wildlife, especially birds, and this lens has produced some great results (see examples on Flickr under JeffLoomis1). With good technique, images are crisp and bright. The macro feature was an unexpected bonus. I am surprised how much I use it for flowers, insects, butterflies, etc. Produces great bokeh affect.In low light this lens is a little slow due to the f/5.6 aperature, and can hunt a bit. But at this price point its hard to complain. Under most conditions, the performance meets or exceeds what you would expect at this level.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the Weight! I have researched for a telephoto lens since I purchased my Nikon D3100 two months ago; I love to capture flowers and birds, but due to my arthritis in shoulders and hands, weight is an issue. Although this SG Macro weighs as much as my camera, the autofocus allows me to get my focus and shot more quickly. I have captured almost 500 keepers over thd past three weeks, and this has justified the purchase. My only complaint or objection is the autofocus is a bit slow between 250 and 300mm, but I don't push that range often. I look forward to adding filters; if anyone has suggestions, please share.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-around lens I wanted to try my hand at macro but wasn't sure I was ready to spend a lot of $$ on a lens until I knew if this was for me. On a recommendation from a friend I decided to purchase this lens as it allowed me to photograph close up and distant images and there would be no need to change lenses constantly. I recently took a trip up and down the coast of California and took only this one worked perfectly! I could not have been happier with the results. Manual and auto-focus both worked well and the noise was not distracting. Images were crisp and clear even without the use of a tri-pod. At this time I have nothing negative to say about the lens and I do appreciate that Sigma sends it out with a hood and a nice protective case.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Beginner Portrait lens For the price I think this is one of the best beginner portrait lenses. I do wish it was faster for natural light photos. You will definitely want to use a tripod in these cases. But if you are using any types of strobes it is great. The focus motor is LOUD. So far I have not had this be an issue. I've shot wildlife with this lens and have not had anything run off because of the noise so far. When using the macro feature you will probably need to switch to manual focus. It hunts for focus and usually doesn't find it. I also have the older non APO version of this lens and the APO is a big upgrade. The sharpness and quality is great. The base where the lens connects to the camera is a bit wider then other lenses. This makes changing it a little difficult to get used to but still worth the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value This is a solid lens. I was somewhat apprehensive about the lack of a VR equivalent, but the price tag of the Nikon 70-300 with the VR drove me to take the chance. I spent a battleship-gray day shooting lacrosse matches at 800-1000 ISO and was able to get excellent action shots with shutter speeds of 250-500. And this was with my D40X which doesn't have the benefit of the latest refinements in higer ISO performance. Very little noise, even at 1000. I haven't put it through its paces on macro shoots, but that's not what I bought it for. It has to search for auto focus a lot toward the 300 end. All in all at $, I am very satisfied with the investment. I consider it a distinctly better-quality lens than my Nikon 55-200 with VR.
