Does anyone have any experience with the Sigma 400mm 5.6 manual focus lens? The one I am looking at is olive green and is manual focus. I am having trouble finding any kind of review on this lens. Possibly there were APO and non-APO versions. Thanks for any information,

Tim

do not get the non-APO, it's a good paper weight.. the AF is worth 100-125us delivered. the APO is ok.. the APO macro is also ok
the non-APO manualis soft as cotton thru out the aperture range..

I just took delivery of the 400mm AF version of the lens (yesterday). When I have a chance I will post a few shots from it. I paid $106.00 and this included caps, case and a 72mm Tiffen haze filter.
