This is a great choice for an affordable wildlife photography lens. This is the lens that I use for all of my pictures that are on our website. It is a great solution for a non expensive but good quality lens. It has autofocus and manual focus, a macro mode, and it comes with a lens hood. I think Sigma is a fairly trustworthy brand. This lens is very lightweight, and the 70-300mm range gets you very good zoom. All my bird photos are taken with this lens. The Nikon or Canon version is so expensive. The quality is great for the price of $160. But the most important thing is knowing how to use it!
If you know every component of your gear and how it works, you can get better photos than someone with a much more expensive lens, who does not know how to work it. If you really use your gear to it's limit you will get the most out of it. We hope this encourages you to consider getting this lens. Have a nice day and happy birding!
