Since the original announcement the general tone was one of disbelief: the specifications were impressive but not real. So, one month after the initial announcement Canon revealed some more

Sigma calls it a ultra-telephoto lens, but the zoom range this lens covers is more common than you may think, and there isn’t really much “ultra” in the 100-400mm lens range, which is, nowadays, available from different brands. In fact, some telephoto lenses even exceed this range, as Sigma knows well, as the company also offers a 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM, a 60-600mm F4.5-6.3
