A couple more with the 6D. Rainy here all day.


Excellent captures. Love the clarity and bokeh.


My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....

Nice and sharp! Man, I need to just get the Canon 100-400 out of my mind and go for this. The price is right.

Thanks, fellows. I bought this for use on my Canon 6D. I have the 150-600 C that I use with tripod on my 70D. I think this will be a great pair for birding and wildlife. Extremely pleased thus far.

biggles2002: I see you have the 80D like myself. Does the Sigma 100-400 lens focus with absolute accurately using DPAF in liveview mode?
My 150-600C does, but my sigma 18-35 f/1.8 doesn't, and it's a known firmware issue apparently. It always misses the mark very slightly with DPAF, but works correctly with contrast detect cameras in liveview e.g. 600D. I don't need to use DPAF very often, but it's a PITA with the 80D until Sigma sort their firmware, hence my interest in any DPAF experiences with this 100-400 lens.

I have used DPAF with the Sigma just a few times and I can't say more than it has worked fine for those times.
I'm using latest FW for the lens.

Here are 2 screendumps from Canons DPP software with focus box visible.

Brilliant, that looks good enough for me thanks. On the 18-35 it would be very noticable that focus was shifted from where it ought to be.

Read this review just now - am tempted to get this specifically for video production when I can't bring my 200-400 f/4 1.4x out, or when I'd rather have reach vs the 2.8 of a 70-200.

Those that own this lens and the 70-200 2.8 lenses - how do they compare in size?

It is a good deal lighter weight than a 70-200mm f/2.8, it is shorter when it is collapsed,. but longer when zoomed out all the way.

It's about the weight of the 70-300mm L

Thanks for the info! I met a photographer today that purchased it. Asked to hold it expecting the 70-200 weight and was pleasantly surprised that the Sigma weighed much less than that. Focus ring seems tight enough for video work too. I'm sold - will get it next time when I need to do more outdoor work.
