Sigma 135-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG announced

Sigma Corporation launch 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG compact ultra-telephoto zoom lens that's optimised for digital SLR cameras.

The new multi layer lens coating and lens design reduce flare and ghost, and also creates an optimum color balance and better picture quality through the entire zoom range. This lens uses one aspherical lens and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glasses for excellent correction of various chromatic aberrations. It provides excellent image quality for digital and film SLR cameras.

Rear focus system ensures high performance stability and ease of use. Since the front of the lens does not rotate during focusing, a circular polarizing filter can be easily attached and use. A removable tripod collar is included as a standard component.

The non DG version did relatively poorly in peer reviews over at fred miranda. You never know - they might have tweaked it beyond just adding a digital orientated coating

I have the old non 'DG' lens and although there is a bit of weight there, I think it is fantastic. It's not the fastest lens but what do expect for 300/400. The images I get from it I think are great when in use with my D70. Just thought I would review the old one which will save you a few quid!
