Photographer William Beecher Jr. perched himself above the tracks on Norfolk Southern’s Sandusky District, waiting for the train. A whistle in the distance, and then another - from behind! This was shaping up to be a fine meet. Before long, the pair of rushing trains met underneath the nearly century-old coaling tower.

Beecher was ready, with his Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary lens. “Here we have contrasting technology - an old coaling tower and modern efficient railroading. And it’s the same thing with camera equipment. I’ve owned other 100-400 lenses, which I’d characterize as big and bulky, while the Sigma 100-400 is a beautifully constructed, modern lightweight lens.”

“It’s easy to handle, and sharp through the entire focal range,’ Beecher continued. “It provides enough reach to comfortably track the approaching train. The autofocus is fast and dead on target, and the Image Stabilization really helps me get maximum sharpness.”

Weighing in at just 2.5 pounds, the Sigma 100-400mm Contemporary is a joy to carry all day. “It’s perfect for packing on hikes for those remote walk-in shots,” Beecher says. “This is THE lens that packs versatility without taking up half your bag!”

If you enjoy telephoto photography but don’t want to deal with a large, heavy lens, the Sigma 100-400 will help you create professional quality images. And, paired with the Sigma 24-105mm F4.0 mid-range zoom, it makes a great partner in a perfect lightweight two-lens kit.
