A telephoto zoom lens with tele-macro function and optimised for digital SLR cameras. This performance telephoto zoom lens is capable of shooting with a maximum magnification of 1:2 at the focal length of 300 mm. The Sigma 70-300mm lens is ideal for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and all other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range.
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.
In order to attain the highest quality images, the APO lens has been made using special low-dispersion (SLD) glass and is designed to minimise colour aberration.

Comments about Sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6 APO Macro Super DG Lens - Canon Fit:
This lens is great for the price, and you won't find this quality build for cheaper. Comes with hood & case, fantastic. But the barrel wobbles when extended. The barrel extends way too far. Focus ring is small. AF is a mechanical type - so rather slow.If you're an amateur / beginner, looking for a cheap but good lens, this is it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a great cheap telephoto lens, the 70mm end is great for portraits and general use, the longer end however isn't great... BUT... if you get past 200mm and flick the macro switch, its great for macro photography where you don't want to be too close.I've used it to take bee & wasp pictures, from a safe distance... there's nothing that will make photos blurrier than flinching away from a wasp when you've got your lens a couple of cm away, why not use this and be a couple of feet away.for a cheap telephoto this is good, reliable autofocus (in good light), not the quickest but reliable. a macro mode, and yes theres no image stabilisation but did i mention it's cheap?I've compared this to the canon EF-S 70-300mm and the Tamron 70-300mm and this has less chromatic abberation and sharper shots than both.just buy one.

Great Lens for the Hobbyist!
About Me Casual user
I mainly purchased this lens as an all rounder that gave me more flexibility than the lens that came with my camera, especially regarding its macro capabilities.Although it is heavy and takes a bit of getting used to regarding just how close you can get when using the macro setting (you actually need to be further away than you think) for someone getting used to DSLR photography it's a really good buy. Most of the photos I've taken with it so far have been far sharper than those taken with my kit lens.Other than the weight which you do get used to, the only thing that bothered me initially was the lack of an image stabiliser and that was only because I had gotten so used to there being one on the kit lens.

I'm not an overly experienced photographer, but I am very happy with my recent purchase.I was after a macro/telephoto lens to save a few pennies as I can't justify too many separate and expensive lenses. This ticked all the boxes and I was keen to get the APO lens due to the benefits over the lens without this.I feel that I have made an excellent decision - images are clear, crisp and vibrant (even for a novice like myself), and the lens is surprisingly versatile away from macro and zoom photos as well.There are some limitations as you get up to the 300mm range, but anything from 250mm and below is more than adequate.Highly recommended for the budget conscious photographer.

I recently upgraded my kit to a Canon EOS 1100D, and was wanting to purchase an add-onn lens.After reading a few reviews, I opted for Sigma.I'm absolutely amazed with my purchase!Sharp, vibrant images without fail everytime.I would definitely recommend this lens[...]

This is an excellent lens for the price, you can get some great shots of wildlife and achieve nice seperation on portraits.Sometimes the focus hunts a bit if there is alot going on in the picture.

Having used a Canon and Tamron lens of the same spec, I have to say the Sigma gives the best results.Images are crystal clear and with a beautiful smooth finish to them.Easy to flip from manual to auto, normal to macro and with a deliciously smooth manual focus and manual override this lens is a delight to use.The light this lens gathers in comparison to other names is astounding. Using it I was able to fire off ten consecutive self-timed lunar shots at 1/640 sec which previous lenses have not been able to achieve (using the same camera body each time).I've never been disappointed by Sigma and didn't hesitate to buy this lens when the 70-300 Tamron I was using gave up the ghost. For glass quality and resulting image quality, and also for the pleasurable experience of smooth action this lens lives up to my expectations of Sigma. Lovely lens.

Quality budget zoom
By Blackbird Singing
This is one of three tele-zooms we own and in terms of quality and price it sits in the middle. As a zoom, this lens does all that it should do excellently. The image quality it produces is hard to fault and for the price is marvellous. The build quality is also a miracle in this price-bracket - the silky-smooth movement of the zoom-ring making the lens a joy to use. It's nicely weighted too, with what weight there is concentrated near the camera making for easy balance. The very nice case that comes with the lens is a welcome bonus.I would not recommend this lens, however, to anyone wanting to try macro work for the first time - get a dedicated macro lens instead. The macro function can only be used at focal lengths that are too long for the novice who has not yet developed some expertise in the craft and, of course, the magnification is only x0.5. A dedicated macro prime will give bigger, better images, while allowing the novice to develop his or her skills. A number of reviewers have been critical of the macro switch on this lens. No, it does not stick - it locks - you need to know where the focus and zoom rings should be in order to use the switch.As a budget zoom, though, this lens gets full marks.
