Has anyone used or know anything about the SigmaZoom Wide Angle-Telephoto 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG Macro IF Autofocus Lens for Canon EOS? This sounds like a pretty good lens to me, however, I am a newbie to this game. :G



I hope it is as I just recently bought this lens about 2 weeks ago. I will post some sample pics later today.

May I suggest starting a new thread on this lens and these pictures?

As far as a suggestion for the OP - in general superzoom lenses aren't really of great quality. Unfortunately, this lens is not in the same quality category as the others being discussed. Don't get me wrong - I'm not a canon snob - I own several sigma lenses. But, 70-200 f4, 70-200 2.8, Sigma 100-300 f4, etc are all pro grade lenses. The 28-300 is a consumer grade lens and the quality drop-off is going to be steep.

Again, if you're interested in feedback/suggestions on your photos - please start a new thread - I'd suggest the sports forum as you can get valuable feedback from people outside the Canon family there.

oops Sorry guys. :-?

Thanks JohnG for the info on the lens. I wanted to get a Sigma 100-300 f4 and add a T1.4x, but funds would not allow it.

I have started a new thread under Sports & Action Photos

So I went with neither of the choices listed above and actually dug around for an affordable dinosaur. As of this morning I am now the proud owner of a canon EF 70-210 USM 3.5f-4.5f USM lens. It was well priced for my budget and it makes a great companion to my other film era lens the EF 28-105mm 3.5-4.5 USM.

I ordered it on ebay, so it should arrive here in a week or two. It might not look AS sexy as an L-Series lens, but it certainly seems sturdier and better than those cheap plastic 70-300mm lens's that every radioshack and ritz camera has on display.
