Thanks. Got it. I was looking for a review specifically/exclusively of Sigma's 120-300mm lens.
I always associate saying "times" something as being a multiplying function, that is, increasing something to make a value larger. In the review, that is clearly the opposite of what is intended.
Um, the values do get larger. 1/250 is 4 times larger than 1/1000.
why not express it as "lets the photographer manage the situation safely even three or four stops slower" instead?
My guess is that this gets back to the page not being a review of just one lens. So it uses more general terms because saying 3 stops specifically may not be true for every lens listed.
