Summary: I am not a pro, just an avid enthusiast who loves Canon Cameras and products. I make NO MONEY on my photos, just like to take great photos of my family and friends. I was set on buying the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II ($2100) then I seen this lens at my local camera rental store.
the Canon is the better lens. But the question of whether it's $1

Summary: I went the rental route before making a purchase on this lens. I rented this twice for two different weekends of photo testing, and I also rented the Canon version of this lens. Now, in my opinion, the Canon is the better lens.
A no-brainer if you need OS, fast AF and f/2.8 for use with Sony A/E/FE mount

Summary: I sold my Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G SSM to get the Sigma, wanting the lens-based OS feature with my NEX-6 (w/ LA-EA2 adaptor) but fully expecting a slight downgrade in image quality. Well, I am pleasantly surprised and very much impressed with the overall performance of my copy of this lens.
The build quality seems to be very good although the lens is not metal like the Canon

Summary: This lens was highly rated against the Canon equivalent at half the price. The only complaint was that it was not as rugged as the Canon. I am not a professional and do not subject my equipment to some of the rigors of a working photographer so I don't worry about this.
bought my first DSLR ( nikon d3100 ) used and liked the camera but not the kit lens two yrs ...

Summary: kinda new at photography had a 35mm when kids where growing up,bought my first DSLR ( nikon d3100 ) used and liked the camera but not the kit lens two yrs ago, upgraded to the Nikon d7100 two months ago and needed better glass for a better camera..
Summary: I originally used this lens with my Nikon D300 but it really came into its own when used with my D800. The Sigma VR works well and allows me to shoot hand held at lower shutter speeds without having to use a tripod or monopod. The bokeh is pleasing and the lens has a fast and quiet AF.
Summary: I've recently bought this lens, and used it twice. I love the sharpness, and fast focus on the lens. I have several other Sigma lenses and have been pleased with them all. My only reason for not giving this lens 5 stars is because of the crappy tripod collar that came with the lens.
