Ok Hi all,

I may have asked before about the Sigma 100-300 F/4 but the chance has finally arisen where I can order it, and it could be mine.

Would some user's just be able to give me, the final low down on what they think of it, and maybe some examples. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Dom - Capital Aviation Photography

Buy one - I had one for a while and REALLY regret selling it.

They are a great lens!

Cheers,

Hi all,

I didn't realise you used one Tony, thought you had the 70-200 EX.

Yup Tony is right in the sence that I use this lens and Dean is also right in his opinion of the lens.

Great lens, constant f4 throughout the zoom range, sharp silky images good contrast and colours silent and fast AF and built like a tank to boot.

In the words of Tony and Dean...get it  yes 

Cheers

Thanks for the opinions guys.

It was ordered from 7dayshop. I was as happy as Larry thinking ah stock plenty and for a bargain proce. As soon as I ordered I get an email saying it's out of stock. The same happened to Dave Potter on his Bigma.

There is me thinking ah what is going on. So I have sent an email to cancel the order and I have ordered it from www.camerabox.co.uk. It's only £559

BARGAIN OR WHAT.

Cheers all. I can't wait to see the results.
