    I am an amateur wildlife photographer who has always used Canon lenses on my 400D camera. When I needed a lens with more reach the cost of Canon's lenses meant either a second hand or a look for an alternative. The Sigma 120-400 had very mixed reviews - especially with regards the lens full open - but what persuaded me to buy the Sigma was looking at the quality of photos on some of the better known photo sharing sites.

    The Lens arrives in a well padded lens case. Also included is a lens hood and caps. As you can see from the photos of the lens there is a very useful tripod mount included; this also makes an excellent hand-hold for carrying the lens. Two straps are also provided - one for the lens, and one for the case (the case one is a little short, but quite usable).

    Make no mistake - this is a big lens! With the hood attached and mounted on a 400D camera it extends to 41 cm (16 inch) but it is also very well designed. On the left hand side are three buttons: one is a lock to prevent 'lens creep' when the lens is carried pointing down, one is a choice for auto or manual focus, and the third selects the Optical Stabiliser (OS) allowing hand held photography at 400mm.

    Neither is it light! When mounted on a camera (inc. battery etc.) it weighs in at 2331 grammes (5.14 lbs) but when used with the second strap it feels quite well balanced on the neck. (These are my own weights and measures and are as accurate as the average tape/scale in a home!)

    How does it take? I have posted two photos with this review. Both are taken hand held at 400mm and are unprocessed. Auto focus is quick and quiet and the OS is very effective.

    Just a note on the OS. There are two options for this - the 'normal' (option 1) detects camera shake and movement.

    Decided on this lens as it fitted perfectly with what I wanted to photograph (wildlife and airshows) also my budget isn't that of a rich man lol.

    Well i can safely say this lens is superb, the clarity is fantastic and zoom perfect if a little slow. For a lens of this length you really can't go wrong for the money. If I take photography further then I may upgrade and find a whole new world with much more expensive lens's but for not this is absolutely spot on.

    I shall try and upload some images that I took at the Biggin Hill Airshow to show you just how good this lens is. I for one would defo buy this lens again. Top job Sigma :o)

    I have had this lens for about a year now, and it is a lovely piece of equipment.

    The lens compares well with 3 other contenders for this range:
    Canon 100-400 L
    Sigma 150-500
    Sigma 50-500

    All of these lens are pin sharp, this one and the Canon 100-400L are arguably the sharpest, the Canon though is twice the price of the Sigma, and does not come with a hood nor tripod collar.
    It scores over the 150-500 and 50-500 by being slightly "faster" - it is F4 not F5 at the widest and F5.6 not F6.3 when fully zoomed.
    All of these lenses are heavy when compared to typical 70-300mm lenses (e.g. the Tamron, which I also own).
    The Sigma 120-400 benefits from Optical Stabilisation and Hyper-sonic motor. The latter is particularly good, as the focussing ring can be used to override the auto focus without having to turn it on and off. The manual focus ring does not turn when the lens is auto-focussing. The optical stabilisation works well, it cuts in when you press the shutter button halfway down and you can see the difference through the viewfinder. OS consistently provides 3-4 stop advantage.
    The biggest advantage of this lens is the clarity of the pictures. Pin sharp at F7.1 and F8 (I can detect no difference between them) - sharp as a prime lens, which is astounding at the price.
    The biggest disadvantage is the weight and size. The Canon is slightly lighter, but only a small amount less (240g). The other two are heavier (the 50-500 significantly heavy).
    I have not had good results when using a teleconverter, I think my cheap one is not compatible, so I will think about the Sigma 1.4x. Sigma state that auto focus will not work if you add a teleconverter to this lens, but it is compatible and all other functions will work.

    See also the review by Barrowfordian (the first one, above)together with my comments then.

    I bought this baby in November 2009 and from delivery there was no other lens for me! Today, 4th Jan 2014 after some 20,000 action shots I give you The Good Bits: Although not a Canon L series lens, at better than half the price, it provides at least 95% of the performance. AF great; O.S. great; Sharpness great: Down side. Haven't found one yet and use it mostly in the 300 to 400mm focal length ranges. I find that f9 is its sweetest spot. I still love it to bits!

    I have owned and used this lens (on a Canon 50D) since late 2009 (Call it a retirement present)I was in 2 minds - this or the Canon L equivalent. Well then, perhaps not quite as sharp as the Canon lens but the sharpness difference is not worth the price difference. One hand held photograph that I took included the back view of a cricket umpire and was taken from the boundary. When I enlarged the image at home I was absolutely amazed to discover that the time on the umpires wrist watch was a clear and as sharp as could be. Unfortunately I couldn't read the name of the watch maker. Also a shot that included a chicken mesh fence from 150 yards at least , revealed both the mesh and the twists in the metal wire that were necessary to maker it! Yes i am 100% pleased with this gem of a long lens. I have given it 5 stars because I couldn't give it 4 3/4 (5 for the Canon L) Note the camera is now on its third shutter mechanism!
