Hello all, I'm new to this forum so forgive me if this is not the appropriate place for this thread. Also, for the fact that I shoot with Nikon gear.
I have been considering the Sigma 120-300 for quite some time. Lately my research has landed me here, for which I am greatful, as it appears that here there are some strong proponents of this lens. The existing thread on this lens offers so much information and has been a wonderful resource. However, what I'm really interested in is input as to how well this lens works with the Nikon bodies and specifically the D700. My primary purpose will be sports photography, and more specifically ice hockey. I have been using my 70-200 2.8 VRII which works well when the action is fairly close but I'd like a little more reach. My shooting positions are usually either from the penalty box or from behind the glass at one end of the rink.
Any comments and insight as to persoal experiences would be greatly appreciated.
