The high performance telephoto zoom lens is ideal for digital SLR cameras. This lens has two SLD glass elements in the front lens group and one in the rear lens group It is able to shoot with maximum magnification 1:2 at the focal length of 300 mm. It is the ideal lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range. This lens has two SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements in the front lens group and one in the rear lens group, the lens has excellent correction of chromatic aberration through the entire zoom range. This lens also comes with a 10 Year Sigma Warranty.
I bought this lens for my Rebel T1i to replace my Canon 55-250 IS. Compared to that one, this one has a longer reach: it is an EF mount so the 70-300 is more like 112-480 with the crop factor.Compare the two lenses (http://www.dpreview.com/products/compare/side-by-side?products=canon_55-250_4-5p6_is&products=sigma_70-300_4-5p6_apo)The macro feature is fairly nice, though not a true macro.The build quality is pretty nice, and it doesnt feel like a cheap lens. And it comes with a pouch and hood.The cons however: the focus motor is LOUD. Louder than any Canon micromotor I've used, and the combination of this lens and the T1i appears to have a harder time acquiring a focus in low light than the T1i + 55-250.
