    @Aleksandaryt Ummmm… Of course, why wouldnt it?

    “you don’t get very close to them.” that’s exactly the point, AF from far
    away is easy, but when you are 3 meters away from a diving bird you just
    simply can’t catch it with AF… besides, manual focusing is far more
    reliable, at least if you know how to do it. though many people are too
    lazy to use it nowadays…

    when the birds fly off they can reach speeds up to 80km/h… if you are
    close to them there is no chance the AF will get them

    @wolfr65 Thanks! I plan on doing a review, but as stated in the video, I’ve
    only had about 45mins with the lens 😛

    Taking a picture of a moving subject, using manual focus? Are you insane?

    What camera settings did you use for these photos..?

  8. puiselo Says:

    for birds you should use manual focus…

    yes. nikons do

    Were these taken wide open? They look a little soft

  11. Captain Cocoa Puffs Says:

    Tell that to my 100-400mm L who gets them fine. I photograph raptors, and
    believe you me, you don’t get very close to them.

    would you recommend this lens for sport photography ?

  13. Robert Wolf Says:

    Nice images, a review would be good…. Cheers

    Oh I adore photographing birds. Quick question if you could answer please;
    I have been looking at lenses and I currently have a 55-300mm from Nikkor.
    The autofocus speed is incredibly slow and doesn’t work well with wildlife
    so I was wondering how fast is the auto focus on this sigma lens? Thank
    you, and magnificent photos for a quick shoot!

    the Bokeh is not so beautiful

    @StarStruckFilms101 That,s the dream, my friend!

  18. Alex Stojanovic Says:

    can it autofocus on a D2X after f 5.6?

    Hello there, do you know “Photo SFXart Tricks” (just google it)? On their
    website you can watch a smart free video showing the best way to take
    incredible photographs. It helped Daniel to take photos that leave you with
    that jaw-dropping-effect after you look at them. Hopefully it works for you
    as well…

    Hey, do you know “photo SFX art” (just do a Google search for it…)? There
    you will find a useful free video explaining how to make better pictures.
    It made it easier for Matt to make pictures that leave you with that
    wow-effect whenever you look at them. It might work for you as well.
