Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HS M | S

What’s good: Ex­tra-long tele­photo reach, cus­tomis­able via op­tional USB dock What’s bad: Re­ten­tion of its f/2.8 aper­ture rat­ing at 300mm re­quires a large, weighty de­sign Our ver­dict: Im­age qual­ity and all-round per­for­mance are su­perb in this heavy­weight con­tender from Sigma

Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f/4G ED VR

What’s good: Ex­cel­lent im­age qual­ity, ef­fi­cient sta­bi­liza­tion, rel­a­tively light­weight What’s bad: Rel­a­tively ‘slow’ f/4 aper­ture rat­ing, sup­plied with­out a tri­pod col­lar Our ver­dict: The com­pact, light­weight build is ideal for pro­longed hand­held shoot­ing
