Product description
Announced Feb 20, 2010

Sigma's latest image-stabilized fast telezoom offers a fine option for budget-conscious buyers, with a unique combination of features for the price. It can't quite match its Canon and Nikon equivalents, but then again it's not as expensive either. Optically it's very good indeed, if a little soft at F2.8, and the autofocus and image stabilization systems are excellent.

Sigma's latest image-stabilized fast telezoom offers a fine option for budget-conscious buyers, with a unique combination of features for the price. It can't quite match its Canon and Nikon equivalents, but then again it's not as expensive either.

Good for: Budget-aware buyers looking for an optically-stabilized fast telephoto lens.

Not so good for: Applications for which portability or discretion is more valuable than outright image quality. Event photographers who regularly shoot in wet or dusty weather.
