Nikon and Sigma 80-400mm Stabilized Lenses

By John M. McBride

Nikon users looked on jealously in 1998 as Canon launched a new era of handheld photography with their 100-400mm optically stabilized telezoom lens.  Suddenly photographers could capture handheld telephoto shots that previously demanded a tripod.  Two years later Nikon countered with the 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 ED VR AF Zoom-Nikkor stabilized lens.  Not to be left behind, Sigma introduced its own stabilized 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 EX OS lens in 2002, matching Nikon’s specs while offering versions for Sigma, Nikon and Canon users.
