Product 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.

    I bought the Sigma 120-300 f2.8 Sport with both TC’s. I have used the lens on a Nikon D5, D850, D500 and D810. I previously used a Nikon 300 f2.8 vrii with all three Nikon TC’s for almost 8 yrs as my main wildlife and sport lens. The Size for me is a big factor and the ability to grab and shoot, that the big primes do not offer. But I wanted some zoom flexibility and used the Nikon 200-400 f4. After testing the Sigma a few times I decided to buy the lens. THE ZOOM FLEXIBILITY is fantastic and even with the TC1.4 the 168-420 f4 is an amazing range. The lens is very sharp and needed very little calibration especially with the TC1.4. The naked lens was a problem and needed some major adjustments. The TC2.0 at short distance is very good but I find that shooting over distances beyond 40-50 meters that the sharpness drops off a lot. Focus speed is fast but not at the same level as the Nikon prime. VR/IS worked very well. This is a great lens, well build and sharp. Negatives. Sigma can improve the tripod collar that is not only very heavy but clumsy. The lens hood is very well build but again very heavy and fitting it to the lens is a bad fit. using a lighter material will be a great improvement. The focus speed can be improved with the new generation focus motor. For me the biggest negative is the serious focus breathing. This from my experience affect sharpness especially if the subject is shot over longer distances. The 120-300 is unique and offer something not offered by any other producer. With said improvements Sigma will put a product on the market that is more on par with the current sport range such as the new 70-200 f2.8 Sport.
