I had one of these lenses several years ago, then moved to a Canon 300/f2.8 and a Canon 400/f2.8. Those are great lenses, but the 120-300 is certainly no slouch. I picked up another copy of this lens recently and it's is a great zoom range for sports. It complements my 400/f2.8 nicely for sports such as soccer and football. It's a great value if you don't have the budget for L glass.

Nothing is a better indication of what this lens can do than those hockey pics! Hockey rinks are typically VERY dim, with low quality lights with a very low frequency. The fact that mr pierce can get ANYTHING useful at iso3200 is a testament to his ability and this versatile lens.
let's face it, you can get sharp photos at f/5.6, ISO200 with ANY cheap 70-300mm zoom in broad daylight.

objetivo genial por su luminosidad, versatilidad y precio.
con el duplicador 1,4x la calidad de las imagenes es sencillamente brutal.
la unica pega, es que es mas lento que los motores SWM de nikon, y en segun que deportes.....
para aves y fauna desde hide, muy recomendable!!

I believe the photos appear in random, and are automatically picked up by PBASE server via data entered by a subscriber on his photos (e.g. lens and camera used). It so happened that there are a few subscribers who actually use the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8. Maybe it's about time people buy the lens and start posting their photos accordingly.

you guys are all knuckleheads.. The hockey pics are a fabulous indicator of the versatility of this lens. If you don't like them, don't look. In the meantime, fabulouspics Kerry.

:-( I find a milliom hockey pics. and they are all really crap :-(

if anyone has pics made with the sigma 120/300 without any additional equipment (converters, filters, etc.) please let me know. I'd like to see how it performs on full 300mms..

many thanks

I posted a message in the guest book of the owner who linked about a million ice hockey shots, suggesting that he/she could remove the lens info (and simply make a mention of the used lens in comments!!) so that it would allow us to browse lens samples without having 90% hockey shots per page ...

Unfortunately, the message got deleted by the said owner of those photos :(

i second the notion on the ice-hockey.

I hoped to see some samples here. But all I find is thousand pics of kids at icehockey :-/

I use this camera for sports and I find it fast and very versitile. I chose it over the 300 f/2.8 since it is 2.8 all the way through. To have 120-300 range in 1 lens is great for sports! Also for $2000 I highly recommend it.

Very versatile
