flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony SAL 70-300 G|
|positive:||Good value |
Easy focusing in low light
Shallow DOF very useful
Good sharpness stopped down
AF prone to hunting
|comment:||This has been my 'long zoom' since I bought it new in 1998. It exhbits very good PQ when stopped down to f4.5 and below. Inevitably wide open the results are a little soft but it does a superb job at isolating your subject from the background at the longer focal lengths and f2.8.|
Recently I bought a Sony 70-300 G and planned to sell the big Sigma on ebay but decided to keep it as it nicely complements the smaller Sony.
AF performance depends on the body it's attached to, works well on my Dynax 7 though not so good on my old Dynax 800.
