The new Sigma 120-300/2.8 OS HSM anyone?
Sep 22, 2010

I know the previous 120-300 f2.8 was reasonably well regarded. This new lens seems to be a complete redesign with FLD and SLD elements rather than just adding OS, a bit like the latest 70-200 2.8 OS HSM.

Hopefully it won't be too much more expensive than the previous version, but considering the approximate price doubling of the 70-200 f2.8 when they did a redesign, I hope this doesn't happen this time round!

It could be an interesting lens coupled with TC's for those who would like the range of 168-420mm at f4.0 or even 240-600mm at f5.6 (with 2x TC) without having to re-mortgage the house to get there!
