Love this lens. I'm 70, so it's a job moving it around. I have a cart for it and my tripod setup, if I have to walk any distance. Great pics, fast focus. 300mm lets you locate then zoom in. This is my stationary location lens. The 150 600mm is my walk around lens.

I gave a lot of thought to purchasing this lens to photograph birds. I've yet to get the beautiful kind of shots I expected from it. Mostly it is quite difficult to get in a position to use the lens to its best advantage and full capacity.

Excellent optically and gives unparalleled reach and ability to frame shots. Heavy and demands care in handling. Before purchase I tried 600mm f4 and could detect little difference in quality. The flexibility of the zoom made the decision on purchase easy.

    Heavy (but this is unavoidable) Finish is good but not great. Attracts lots of attention. Case provided is OK for storage but not for carrying. I have a Lowepro Super Trekker which will carry this and a range of other kit.

Great lens in my book. Despite of the weight, this lens is great for birding. I managed to get great photos of bulbuls, sunbirds, and other tropical birds which was probably 150 yards away from me. Tripod is a must I'm afraid.

After reading these reviews i see mostly positives for experienced photographers. One thing i DON'T understand is the thumbs down on these reviews, if you are gonna leave a thumbs down have the sack to explain why. Thank you.

I use this lens on a tripod with a Wimberly (gimbal) head, so weight and bulk and electronic IS (image stabilization) are not a problem. This lens does NOT have IS so you don't have to remember to switch it off on the tripod.

SIGMA really needs to stop raising the price of this lens and add it's Optical Image Stabilization "O.S."I owned this lens for two years early in it's production run. I shot it mated to then new EOS 1D MkII (which gives you an idea of when I had it)New versions have come out and the price keeps...

This is the second one of these lenses that I have owned, one for Nikon and now the Canon version. This lens is heavy, but ruggedly built. It takes excellent photographs using the proper techniques.

Not only is this a dream come true lens, but it is well engineered, thought out and built. It is tact sharp and very fast to focus. The drop in filters can be turned and adjusted, has three different focus limit modes and looks very cool on your tripod.

I bought the lens after reading several reviews, positive and negatives. Anyway I did not want to pay $ for a 800mm from Canon and found out the Sigma served me perfectly. The lenses is sharp and has good contrast, it has that yellowish tinge of sigma but easily correctable.
