Excellent images.
That Sigma SD10 does produce good detail & color.

How is the 80-400 OS working out, being Sigmas first stabilized lens?
I came close to adding it to my bag, then picked the 120-300F2. 8 instead. May add the 80-400 OS in the future :-).

Hi Peter,

It's quite good, about the same in sharpness and such as my Canon 100-400L IS or perhaps a bit better.

The 120-300 F2.8 is a much better lens, but alas no stabilization. I wish Sigma would put stabilization on the
120-300 F2.8 and on the 300-800 F5.6

The downside of the 80-400 OS is that it has exceedingly slow autofocus. I couldn't recommend it for a Canon
or Nikon wildlife shooter since there are better options such as the 100-400L IS. The stabilization works as well
as on my 100-400L IS, but the dog-slow autofocus is problematic.
