The Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM telephoto zoom lens incorporates Sigma’s original OS (Optical Stabiliser) system. It offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed approximately 4 stops faster. Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for chromatic aberration. This lens is equipped with the rear focus system that minimises fluctuation of aberrations caused by focusing. It provides optimum image quality throughout the entire zoom range. The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range. The minimum focusing distance of 150cm throughout the entire zoom range and has a maximum magnification of 1:4.2 make it useful for close-up photography. More
Sigma’s DG lenses are designed for cameras with a full-frame sensor, but cameras with a cropped sensor can also take these lenses. These are large-aperture lenses with wide angles and short minimum focusing distances. With an abundance of peripheral illumination, they are ideal lenses for Digital SLR Cameras whilst retaining suitability for traditional 35mm SLRs.

5.6 at 400mm is great for 3 digit price
By S Cheyne
Comments about Sigma 120-400mm f4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM Lens - Nikon Fit:
I considered getting this or the Sigma 150-500mm, decided on this because it opens up a little more. I find myself opening the aperture wide most cases. Focal range is great. focus is quicker than I expected, not noisy either and it's results are sharp even when handheld like I tend to do. Although it may be a little heavy for some doing this, a monopod should help that. I use it as my primary telephoto, I plan on getting the Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 to complete my telephoto range.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lens covers a great range
By Paul the snapper
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
I bought the lens to go with my Nikon D600 to use on safari. The lens never let me down, although heavy this can help for steadier holding. Images were sharp throughout focal range and shutter speed/aperture settings.

Wow what a lens
I researched this lens for months before eventually buying it from WEX , I even filled a plastic bottle with water to get a feel of how heavy it was .I use a Nikon D7000 with a MB-D11 battery pack and when you attach the Sigma 400 to it ,it just fits like a glove and sits so well on a flat surface.Buying this lens also gave me a use for that Monopod which I bought a couple of years ago and never got around to using.So like every other photographer as soon as the lens arrived I had to test it and I was not disappointed . I got a fabulous shot of a Blackbird feeding a fledgling on a really grotty day (max extension minimum Focal length) while sat on the end of my bed looking out of the window. So now I tell my friends that "the Sigma 120-400mm is the lens which brings the subject to you".

Sigma 120 - 400
I think this is one of the best Sigma lenses I have bought. It's OS works superb. Low light, low shutter speed not a problem. At 400mm - 350th second,f8 perfect images. Ok so the ISO needs to go to 800. Best buy vote!

Sigma's AF 120-400mm.f4.5-5.6.OS
from Langtoft Peterborough
About Me Professional
This lens I have fitted to a Nikon D800, with 36MP and the excellent glass fitted inside the Sigma AF 120-400mm f4.5-5.6 APO.DG.OS, it's a cracking lens for Bird and Sport Photography, in fact I'm that pleased with this lens that, I'm thinking of buying Sigma's 300 f2.8..

Because of weather have only used it through double glazed windows on birdlife in garden, top notch results. Can't wait to get to my local wildfowl park this week. Although heavy, handheld shots came out spot-on. Highly recommended.
sigma wins again
Sigma,I sing your praises.This lens has done all I have asked of it,yes it is heavy, but because of its specific uses I would not carry it all day long. The lens has been used on my D90 and D300s without any problem, on one occasion with extremely bright sunlight I even used it at full magnification with a 2X converter with tolerable results. My appreciation of this lens has no bounds and there are no thoughts of replacing it should I win the lottery.

Chuffed to bits!
By a happy punter
All that weight-training I used to do has certainly come in handy! Since I got this lens a couple of weeks ago, it has literally not been off my camera. Yes, it is heavy, but wowsa!, I love using it! Nice and sharp, with great reach, it has transformed my photography. I find it is easy to get hand-held shots just by dialling the ISO a little higher, and the way the depth-of-field separates the subject from the background is really pleasing. I'm using it on a D5100, and although the lens weighs way more than the camera body, I quickly got used to it. The optical stabiliser works beautifully and I've found it focuses quickly and accurately. When trying to make a choice, I did wonder about going for the 150-500, but I'm completely delighted with this 120-400. It is great for nature, birds and close-ups of flowers and insects, etc., even though it doesn't go macro. Some have previously mentioned zoom-creep when carrying vertically, so maybe Sigma have tightened it up a bit in the meantime, cos it isn't a problem on my version (but, if you want, it's lockable at 120 anyway). This is a great value-for-money lens; seems there is nothing else to touch it at this price level. [...]

Looks Like Great Value
from West Midlands
I had ummed and ahhed about buying the Nikon 80-400, and it was rumoured that a new version was about to appear. However, it hasn't so i decided to plump for the Sigma 120-400.I've only had the lens a week but here are my first impressions:Great image quality up to 350mm, then falls off slightlyAt full zoom great image quality at f8 or smaller.OS seems to work well but is a bit louder than Nikons VRHeavy! i wouldnt want to carry it around all day Zoom creeps slightly when held vertical, but who shoots vertical?I have a friend who has the Canon 100-400 generally considered the best of the lenses around this focal length. That lens is almost exactly twice the price of the Sigma but it certainly isn't twice as good.Conclusion:Very happy bunny!
After reading many reviews on this Lens I decided to take the plunge and buy it. Some reviews I read suggested slight soft focus at 400mm, I am pleased to say that this is not the case. My pictures are very sharp at 400mm especially using f8 or f9. The Optical Stabiliser is also very quiet, despite some reviews saying it was very noisey. I can fully reccommend this lens. I bougth it as a replacement to the Sigma 135-400mm the previous version, mainly for the HSM focusing, which is fast and accurate. As my main interest is photographing motorsport this has proved to be a great purchase.
