Sigma super-tele multi-coated 400mm f/5.6
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2014-05-08
Built-in extendeable hood
Built-in trypod mount which can be turned 360°
Very well made and solid.
Not the most impressive lens I have tested exactly.
Mostly because the image quality is not very good.
Wide open look terrible with tons of glow and color fringing.
Stop it down an it okay but not great.
The nice things are however that it's a quite the small and lightweight lens for this focal length.
Focusing only moves a smaller lens elements inside which is nice because focusing is quite easy and smooth.
Compared to moving all elements which is often quite heavy on a lens like this.
Last point is also that this lens seems to be somewhat known to be quite bad.
That is at least good for the price and you can find this very cheap with some luck.
So that is always great for those that just want to give the focal length a try or can't afford to spend that much money.
Lightweight and size
8 bladed aperure
Often very cheap
Glow and color fringing
