Reviews

"Although this lens isn't one of Sigma's EX series, they don't appear to have cut any corners with the build quality. Much of the lens barrel is finished in Sigmas matt powder coated finish, which looks very smart when new, but seems to show up marks a little easier than some other lens finishes.

It has a fair bit of weight to it too. Weighing 1780g, many who've not used a large super-telephoto like this
