  • Conclusion: The Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG Macro HSM II is a prime example of an independent manufacturer producing a design which can challenge the camera companies' own lenses in most aspects of optical and operational performance, but at a much lower price. In almost all regards it performs well in everyday use, delivering good quality images across a broad range of situations.
  • Pros: Decent image quality, Low vignetting even on full frame, Fast and positive autofocus, Very good build quality, excellent tripod collar design, Low price
  • Cons: Relatively weak at 200mm (softness, chromatic aberration, pincushion distortion on full frame), Unconvincing 'macro' performance; soft at wider apertures, significant focus shift on stopping down, Red/cyan bokeh chromatic aberration

Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
17 July 2008
  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO proved to be a worthy although not stellar representative of its league with quite high performance figures in most categories. At 70mm and 135mm easily matched and even excelled the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 USM L whereas it was somewhat worse at 200mm except at medium aperture settings. Both distortions as well as vignetting are nothing to worry about. The build quality is very impressive.
