Sigma mount 70-300mm OS ... $309 !!!
Sep 9, 2012

While checking the Sigma Corp website I ran across their 70-300mm OS lens. The MSRP was $549, which sounded OK. When I entered "Sigma" in the "mount" menu, the price changed to ... $309 USD!

Just over $300 for a 70-300mm zoom, with OS and SLD glass? I couldn't get my credit card out fast enough. Amazon had five of them at the same price, with two-day free shipping, so I purchased one through them.

The lens arrived today, and I took about 50 shots with it. Nice and sharp, fast AF and OS, small and light-weight. Perfect when I don't want to haul around a full-sized zoom.
