Style: Nikon 120-300mm F2.8 Sports DG APO HSM Art
I wanted the option of having the 300mm focal length at f/2.8 but I just couldnt justify buying both a 300 and 400 primec because I honestly thought it would be kind of dumb to be honest. Thats when I came across this monster. I was a little doubtful at first since the Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 I received was an absolute disasterc but this lens is incredible. Its been my go-to lens for just about all types of sport photography. br brFirst off this thing is SHARPc yes even wide open. The bokeh is beautiful and clean. It gets even better as the apertures get smaller (higher f/stops for those who dont quite understand the ridiculous way aperture is measured.) br brI wont beat around the bushc this thing is HEAVY. Youll want a monopod or a seat to rest your elbow on if youre going to shooting with it for a while. But else would you expect from a lens with this focal range and aperture br brThe OS (image stabilization) seems to work just as well as Canonsc not that its relevant when shooting sports. I leave it off most of the time. Regardless thoughc when I have needed itc it does work well. The AF is very quick and responsivec maybe a tad bit slower than the staple 70-200 f/2.8 l IS II. The best part of this thoughc is that if you buy a separate software/usb adapterc you can make 2 custom AF settingsc which I have taken full advantage of. Ive made one that focuses with speed being the main factorc one that has accuracy as the main factorc and the standard one being in the middle. br brAll in allc I LOVE this lens for sports on either my full frame or crop sensor body. The unique focal range/aperture make this lens an incredible addition to any photographer that relies on longc fast lenses and large apertures. br brDont believe me Check out the photos I uploaded to the customer pics section. I think they speak to the quality of this lens.
