  • Thanks for your reply. There are more than a few capable individuals here who highly recommend the 300mm f4 (and the 1.4x TC). They have good reason to endorse that lens given the results they ...
  • Thank you for the reply alameda. I looked at many photos of the discontinued Sigma 100-300mm lens and found them to be noticeably sharper than the Sigma 50-500mm at the long end.  Shots with a 1.4x ...
  • Ken, thank you for your clear and colorful samples. Sigma is usually good with saturation and rendering its also very visible with the 18-300. At +800m the detail is more than sufficient.
  • OpticsEngineer, than you for the samples and test with the K01. The lenses I was referring to are the Sigma 28-70 and 70-300 DL. These are their low-end zooms and there may be some other acronyms ...
  • About the 50-500, I agree that its a very well-built lens, though I found through lots of static subject photos that it does soften at 500, whatever the aperture. I was warned of this by several ...
  • strange title as there is nothing strange about this lens. its a zoom lens, it focuses, pictures can be made. end of story. i used one briefly in the late 70s. it was sharp but a little awkward to...

  • Created discussion thread Sigma 50-500 on Pentax
    Since there are limited options for long lenses on Pentax (especially factoring in price and availability new) I tried the Sigma 50-500mm zoom. I'd like to know of the experiences of others here ...
  • By your accounts, I'm convinced. I've read that the contrast AF of the K-01 is not good with long lenses. Does anyone think that would be the case with the Sigma 18-300 and the K-01 also?
  • a completely stupid and pointless exercise. the tiger is beautiful and impressive but there are thousands of videos of large dogs mouthing plastic pieces and cameras. the stupid part is that the...

  • Created discussion thread Sigma 18-300 vs Sigma 28-70 & 70-300
    As I pursue bird photography for the first time, I find I am also becoming interested in nature photography in general. At present I have a K-01 on long-term loan and Sigma 28-70mm & 70-300mm ...
  • what an absolutely adorable little child! i rarely see such peace and serenity on the faces of children in NYC and its suburbs. most of the "children" are spoiled screaming brats and that's on a...

  • A very clear and helpful range of shots for anyone considering the Sony 100-400mm. For those not able/willing to depart with $2500US, I'd like to see a comparison of the Sony and the Sigma 100-400mm. ...
  • How far were you from the quail approximately? On close inspection the detail is good. Looking at the Sony lenses compared to Sigmas (at least for the longer focal lengths) I find the Sony's ...
  • Yea, but is it 2-3x better in terms of sharpness, clarity, and AF? I saw a few YT videos comparing the Sigma to the Canon equivalent, and optically they were very close. The reviewer was also clear ...
  • Sharpness is very important in this class of lenses.  There's no point to lugging a heavy lens about if the all-important detail and clarity isn't there. This is why I asked my question. It would ...
  • Created discussion thread Sigma 100-400mm vs Sony 100-400mm
    I'd like to keep this thread going as opinions firm up about both of these lenses. If anyone has had the good fortune to have tried them both, please weigh in. These two are very close in specs but ...
  • The last time I was published in NG was 1982. The entire tone of the magazine started changing then, and by the 90s they had solidified into what they are now. The stories actually generate more...

  • far better shots than the shots posted in DPR articles by today's modern junk photographers. people had a bit of soul back then behind the camera (and in front) - as imperfect as they were....

  • Commented on article Sigma SD Quattro H Review

    Of course. Maybe Dpreview could assemble a brief article suggesting museums by state or country where collections of actual photographic prints are on display for public viewing. It needn't be...

  • Commented on article Sigma SD Quattro H Review

    No matter what minor differences there are it still produces ones and zeros assembled on a computer screen which can be later digitally printed to paper. To my eyes that look and feel is very...
