Why Sigma 120-300 f/2.8
Feb 20, 2013

I was wondering, why any one would like to buy the (new) Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 and why not to carry on with Nikon 70-200 f/2.8; the Nikon option looks better in every regards - be it price wise or weight wise. I would really like to know the specialty of the Sigma offering.
