Sports line lenses deliver high action-capture performance

Sigma is organizing all its interchangeable lenses into three product lines; Contemporary, Art and Sports. While offering sophisticated optical performance and expressiveness, our Sports line lenses deliver high action-capture performance, enabling photographers to get exactly the shots they want. With their high-level optical performance and expressive power, these lenses can capture fast-moving subjects, even at distance. This high-performance line also offers a variety of functions to aid the photographer in challenging conditions and scenarios.

The SIGMA 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM is the first product from the “Sports” line. Besides sports photography, the lenses are also perfect for nature shots featuring birds, wild animals and other wildlife, and for capture of aircraft, trains, racing cars and more. Another major feature of our Sports line lenses is their wide range of customisation functions: using the software provided, all sorts of settings can be tailored to the personal preferences of the photographer.

Dust-proof and splash-proof construction

For professional purposes, we have achieved excellent durability by incorporating dust-proof and splash-proof parts for joint parts, such as mount attachment, manual ring, zoom-ring, switches for customization and external switch panels. It prevents dust and dirt from entering the lens. Also, the usage of the zoom ring and focus ring is well positioned for shooting situations.

High image quality close to fixed focal length lens

This lens incorporates 2 FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, 1 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element, and compensate for the colour aberration at the utmost. The design also compensates for sagittal coma flare and minimises the blurring of a point light source in peripheral areas. It offers very high image quality, close to fixed focal length lens.

Incorporation of focus limiter

Excellent usability is achieved by incorporating inner focusing and zooming that requires no change in the length of the lens for focus and zoom. It is possible to use with a rounded filter, such as a Circular Polarizer, as the front part of the lens is fixed. Due to the focus limiter offering adjustable range of auto focusing, this lens can provide fast focus setting. The USB dock enables users to change the range of the auto focusing at the discretion of users’ creativity.

Ease of use

Many parts of this lens have been designed for comfortable usage. For example, the design of the zoom ring is concerned with a texture when you hold it, the position of printed letters and the 4 control switches with integration-considered shape of the screws. Included accessories such as the removable lens hood and the newly designed tripod collar with strap ensure added ease of use

Flare and ghosting conscious design

In order to achieve high rendering on this flagship lens, flare and ghosting were thoroughly measured from an early stage to establish an optical design which is resistant to strong incident light such as backlight. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.

Excellent in handheld photography for telephoto shooting

This lens incorporates the OS system which offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible, ensuring the excellent use in handheld photography for telephoto shooting. The OS system has two modes – OS mode 1 is suitable for general photography, and OS mode 2 is best for panning shots of subjects such as planes or racing cars. It is possible to adjust the OS using the optional USB DOCK.

Verdict: This lens offers brilliant sharpness with optical stabilisation and a long zoom range. It is quite heavy and is therefore best mounted onto a tripod. The HSM means the focus is very quick, accurate and almost silent.

ePHOTOzine

Although the performance of this lens isn't of the same absolute brilliance of the Nikon and Canon fixed super-telephoto lenses, it isn't all that far behind. Add in the flexibility afforded by the zoom and it still makes a compelling alternative to the camera manufacturer's own fast telephoto...

Practical Photography

This 3390g behemoth of a lens fits snugly into Sigma’s Sport line of glass and is designed to be mounted to a tripod rather than hand-held. This leads it to be rather more specialist than many lenses in test, though doesn’t detract from its image quality.

The Digital Picture

The Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports Lens is a physically beautiful lens that delivers also-beautiful image quality even with a wide open aperture. Remarkable is that this lens has the widest max aperture available in any 300mm lens (f/2.8), but still offers a significant 120-300mm zoom...

Photography Life

After using the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM for about two months, I knew that I wanted to say quite a bit about it, particularly on its few strengths and many weaknesses. To me, it feels like Sigma has taken a shortcut with the 120-300mm f/2.8, simply redesigning the lens barrel and relabeling...

Photodo

This 2.5x zoom lens sports a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture, silent focusing and optical stabilisation. It slots into Sigma's 'Sports' range of lenses and is especially interesting as the zoom range is similar to that of a 70-200mm lens with a 1.4x teleconverter fitted, whilst maintaining a fast...

Imaging Resource

The Sigma 120-300mm ƒ/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens is a fantastic piece of glass that features professional-level image quality, build quality and features at a price point that, at least at the time of this review, are not matched by any other competing lens manufacturer.

As a theatre and event photographer I wanted a selection of lenses that had an aperture of at least 2.8. With 24-70 & a 70-200 Canon lenses in my bag this lens was the only 2.8 zoom that went longer than 200.

Great lens. More flexible than the Nikon 300mm f2.8 offering, and a good bit cheaper. One word of caution though - it is heavy.I didn't think this would be an issue, and it isn't generally. But if you use it all day long you do begin to notice it.

A well built lens giving good quality results, just a bit on the heavy side making it cumbersome to move around with. I practised a bit before taking it out so that I could handle it properly. Needs a solid tripod to get best results. Generally quite pleased with my purchase.
