The Sigma APO 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG telephoto zoom lens is an outstanding lens in this category, an excellent optical performer with optical stabilization and a high speed hyper sonic motor to help you shoot amazing photos. Three SLD (special low dispersion) glass elements provide optimum color correction and sharpness throughout the entire zoom range. Rear focusing system corrects for fluctuation of aberration due to focusing. Compatible with the Sigma APO tele converters. Its reach relative to its size makes handheld photography easy to track moving subjects and it fits easily in most common camera bags for the ultimate convenience. Its close-up focusing ability makes it handy for shots of small objects such as flowers without having to change lenses. Outstanding photographs are always the outcome.

It arrived a day before I was to shoot an indoor track event and in my head I was thinking this would be a great opportunity to test this baby out and I did. I have to say I was very impressed with the results. I shot with both this Sigma 120-400, and my Sigma 70-200 2.8 lens and I can honestly say looking at the pictures at times I could not tell which lens I was using at that moment. The only draw back was that I had to shoot at a very high ISO because of the lighting at the event, but the results were very close. I will say that this lens is not as sharp as the more expensive lenses, but it comes really close for the price.
1. The lens focal ring creeps because it does not have internal focusing. It zooms out like your standard 70-300 lens therefore when aiming down it creeps in length although you can lock the lens at its 120mm setting.
2. Secondly at times when I first put the lens on the camera it does a weird lens shake with the AF system as if it can't find the subject and after that its okay.
Other than that I am a satisfied customer. You have to keep in mind with this type of lens is that light is your friend and if you can keep your shutter fast say around 250 or higher for certain types of event you will be fine. Most of the reviews and complaints have been on sharpness, but if you understand the basics of a camera such as ISO, Shutter, Aperture and know the limits of your camera you will have no problem with this lens. Certain camera's has more advance focusing systems like the Canon 7D so you have to find the best settings to suit the need. In my opinion this lens will easily become my favorite and if you want to see pics that I have taken with this lens you can view them here [...] . So far I only have the one pic up however I will be posting more and also check out Flickrs group for this Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 AF APO DG OS HSM lens and see what others are capturing with it. Hope this helps.
1. This thing is a beast, it weighs 3.5 pounds and makes my D500 look enormous. With that being said it was very easy to get sharp photos without a tripod.
2. With the image stabilization turned on its a little noisy but that's normal.
3. There is some vignetting but its not too terribly noticeable and can be easily removed with PhotoShop.
It works pretty good for both wild life and close-ups of plants / insects.
I'm very much an amateur but I couldn't be happier
Still working with details of the lens. Since it's used, no manual, but I found a PDF online that explained the two different OS settings.
Lens has no real wear, seems to refocus well, unless it's a change from minimum shooting length out to near-infinity, but that's to be expected. Focuses fairly quickly in lower light. Still working on facility of use, etc. Seems that the sweet spot runs about 200-340mm. Far end of a longer zoom, unless hugely pricey, is going to drop off a bit, of course. For a lens of this price, nothing unexpected, so good there.
OS seems to be working well so far. I have shot down as slow as 1/60, with a medium zoom distance, handheld.
Here's my second group of test shots. These are with a T2i, mostly medium/high-quality format, though some of the later ones are large/high quality format. As I'm looking to upgrade to at least a T4i, with larger photo size and one step newer on processor, that will address some issues, too.
