Sigma 70-300mm f4 -5.6 DG OS
The downside is they 'steal' your gear. Robin has grabbed the Canon 5D and the 24-105 zoom lens, leaving me with a 50mm and 200mm prime(s). As good as they are, my skills need something with a little more reach and flexibility. For everyday use, at some point I will get a 24-70 f2.8 Canon lens...
Even so, something we can perhaps 'share' with a little extra range would be welcome, hence this week's arrival of the Sigma 70-300mm DG OS tele-zoom lens below.
For a modest financial outlay, it is light weight, has a reasonable aperture and with image stabilisation it will fill a void I hope.
This is my first Sigma (and in fact non-Canon) lens but I have friends who are happy with them, so I am optimistic.
The new Sigma is already packed in the backpack for our annual Queensland holiday so I sincerely hope I can bore everyone senseless with some great images from the Sunshine Coast upon our return in a couple of weeks!
