Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 AF APO DG HSM ????
Jul 16, 2012

I'm tired of waiting for Nikon to upgrade 80-200 that may never happen in my lifetime and was wondering if the Sigma 120-400 any good?

I was just checking one out at the NECCC Photographic Conference on a canon no less - ha ha. It seemed like a very well built lens (I'm suspect of the finish though!) fast, etc. plus it's a lot cheaper ($899 on Amazon) than the current 80-400 that I had and sold.

I'm not a lens snob but I don't usually buy 3rd party lenses; got stuck in the past so I'm looking for a little direction here. I have the nikon 500 Vr but I love the size on the Sigma for those occasions when you want to bring along something smaller.
