Sigma EX series compared to Canon L series
Mar 29, 2008

I've been wondering how well does top range 3rd party lenses such as the 'EX' series lens from Sigma compare to the Canon L lenses. I understand that there are only a few lenses that can be compared directly against each other but this question is more in general.

What I am interested in is IQ, sharpness, focus etc. I have a Sigma 100-300 f4 EX lens which I use for outdoor sport and wildlife and I find the build quality to be really top notch.

Overall, I think it is a great lens, I am just curious to learn from more experienced users whether the more expensive 'L' lenses are in fact better and whether it is a case of 'you get what you pay for' or that you pay more for the brand name?

Thank you
