Need some help,Looking for a zoom lens for this D70 butt do not want to lose any f-stop Thanks
What's the range you're looking for?
Well there is always the Sigma 70-300 but it's not fast. It's not a bad lens at all.
Well there is...
Sigma 100-300 F4.0 not sure on the quality though....
Sigma 120-300 F2.8 APO with HSM only $2300
Thank Voodoocat ,I have a sigma 70-300 mm D 1:4-5.6 APO MACRO
I recently bought the Sigma EX 120-300mm f/2.8 HSM after a lot of angst and web-searching. Glad I did, great lens, I love it. Fast, sharp, contrasty - all that stuff. I think it'd surprise you if you've been using a non-EX non-HSM Sigma. I have recently used a Canon L 70-200mm f/2.8 IS USM and I believe that the Sigma EX compares well to it on build and performance values, although both lenses handle differently due to their repsective sizes.
Anyway, it's something to consider ...
i have to agree with MCTuomey - the EX series of sigma lenses is superb.
Only own one at the moment for my drebel - the 70-200mm f/2.8 hsm/apo/if, but damn, if i don't love it - pictures are sharp as a button at f/4 or f/5.6 and at f/2.8 although it's a little soft you really do get a markedly thin DOF - great for isolating the subject!
build quality - having never handled canon l-series glass, i can't really compare the two except to say that the lens i have is superb, and in my opinion has no equal.
