Re: Advice on Sigma 120-400 lens.

It has a pretty good reputation - I've it's larger sibling, the 150-500mm OS as wildlife is one of my priorities (and prefer to use over the Canon 100-400mm IS)

Re: Advice on Sigma 120-400 lens.

I've been happy with mine - the IQ and focussing speed are about 95% of my Nikon 70-300mm but the extra reach is useful.

OS works fine but is quite noisy

The balance when using the foot is just right, although hand holding is possible I wouldn't want to do it all day

All in all good value for money
