Judgmental Chickens | Sigma 120-300/2.8 review

Photographers:  After 8 long years with my 70-200/2.8 for sports, it was time that I upgraded.  I knew with the low light situations I work with, even with the Nikon D3s set to 104,000 ISO, and aperture at 2.8, it is still difficult to catch action in high school stadiums.  So I opted for another 2.8 lens with just a bit more reach.  I don’t typically buy Sigma, and strictly stick to Nikkor, but felt for the price, and 2.8, this was the choice.  I will be reviewing it a bit more in the upcoming week, but today I decided to give it a quick review on speed.  What best way to test speed?  Chicken heads.  Have you tried to photograph a chicken head, hand held with a long lens opened up wide?  Yeah.  It was GREAT!
