Sigma has announced an image-stabilized telephoto zoom in the shape of the 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG OS. Suitable for use on both APS-C and full frame cameras, this lens incorporates Sigma’s Optical Stabilization technology allowing hand-held shooting at shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than usual, along with a circular diaphragm for attractive rendition of out-of-focus backgrounds. The minimum focus distance is 1.5m giving a maximum magnification of 0.26x; unlike Sigma’s non-stabilized 70-300mm zooms there’s no extended macro focusing option. The lens will available for users of Sigma, Nikon, Canon, Pentax and Sony SLRs.

  1. Okay pompous Michael without an E, try reading more on Canon lens forums to get you up to date. While you’re at it, read up a little on the differences between a wide-angle lens design and a normal lens design. Get back to me when you’re sufficiently edified.

  2. Oh, Johnny-boy, don’t use the “royal we”, Michael without an E would get frothing mad at you. :P

  3. I have asked you a direct question – please do explain why according to you (and you only) the current FF are not suitable for crop cameras. Please do explain why would Canon want to release a top-notch, good quality lens as EF-S only mount that severly limits its sales. Do not escape into firing cheap shots and hiding behind empty rhetoric. You have made a statement, you have been challenged as to its accuracy so now answer the questions. If you can, if not please just remain silent for the future.

  4. >Sigma don’t know how to make good glass.

    You’ve got to love the Internet and the anonymous trolls, it’s so easy to show up and some forum and make an idiotic, baseless, sweeping statement like that. Of course they don’t know and people who think different and the thousands satisfied customers are just wrong:–review?start=2
