Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM SuperZoom for Nikon or Canon

The new Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Lens for Nikon is in stock for Canon at B&H Photo with the Nikon coming soon.

Sigma’s new superzoom is now shipping. A 300mm f/2.8 is rather limiting, but perhaps extra zoom range might provide additional incentive to carry such a big and heavy lens. It will be interesting to see how it performs; I was never all that happy with the Nikon 200-400mm even on lower-resolution cameras, so I sold mine some year ago..

My main concern with all such super-telephotos is the tripod collar, which on most Nikon modern Nikon telephotos is very poorly designed for stability. Canon lenses are a bit better, but none can hold a candle to the design on my old Nikon 50-300mm f/3.5 - 4.5 ED. The Sigma collar looks iffy, but I’ll find out when I actually use the lens, as I intend to do in the next few weeks.

Description

The Sigma 120-300 F2.8 DG HSM OS is the first lens introduced into the Sports category for Sigma’s Global Vision. Designed for full frame cameras but can work with APS-C sized sensors as well, the 120-300 F2.8 has a large aperture and versatile focal length, ideal for a wide range of photography. Though placed in the Sports category, the 120-300 F2.8 is also great for nature, automotive, wildlife, and everything in between.

Equipped with state of the art technology such as a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), an Optical Stabilizer (OS) and Inner Focusing and Zooming, the 120-300 F2.8 ensures sharp and beautiful images.

The HSM allows for a quiet, fast, and accurate autofocusing while the OS compensates for camera shake while shooting by hand.

Two FLD glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, are incorporated with one SLD element to reduce color aberration at the highest degree.

The Sports category offers not only a higher level of customization through the Sigma USB dock*, but also has a dust and splash proof design.

USB Dock Compatibility

Sigma has developed special software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) that can update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus.

In addition, the lenses from our Sports line have customizable AF speed, focus limiter and OS function. The “Custom Mode Switch” is the device for further customization on the dedicated lenses.
