Summary: I've bought the lens and I thought it had a ''very good'' rate for a used item, but then when i unpacked the lens, and attached it to my camera, it didn't focus and the zoom didn't work, that's why I returned it to the address you gave me. I purchased different camera items before from Amazon and they were great. this is the first time I found an item that's not working. Anyway, thanks for asking.
Summary: Very nice lens for money. Fast, accurate focusing, great image quality. Nikon's counterpart not anywhere near a $1000.00 better lens. I have the Sigma 17-70, and will eventually get either their 120-400 or their 150-500 as well.
Summary: Even Nikon gives 4,5 stars for it . It is really perfect lens, because of the weather conditions and I am on moving I am not able to use it much right now, But first day I tried it a cpl times, It works perfect. And the best it, it arrived only in 3 days in its original box, not used.
Summary: This lense is fast and accurate. I shoot professionally and I was reluctant to purchase non-canon glass but this lense has sharp detail, great speed and fantastic low light abilities for half the price. Build construction is solid and heavy.
i love japan's lenses, not only Sigma 70-200 f2.8 APO EX

Summary: 1. I love it's solid structure with black color that goes well with my Canon camera body, (I do not like the White color of Canon 70-200 f2.8 or f4l, i think if i use these Canon lens on my 60d its looks like i am going to wear a white pants with a black shirts, looks so weird for me:)) 2.For an amateur like me, i am happy with the quality of pictures by this lens, day and night. 3. OS helps me alots coz of my shaking hands. 4.
Summary: So I used to own the Canon 70-200 2.8 II, and it took amazingly sharp images... and was an all around GREAT lens. I sold it to get the 5D Mark iii, and have never regretted that. But I needed the reach of a 200 and thought that I could compromise with this lens. Going in, I never expected it to be equal to the Canon, (as it was less than half the price). I have been impressed that the shots I took were pretty good.
Summary: My son was so excited to get this that he didn't wait for Christmas, but opened it and began using it the minute it came! He does a lot of professional photography and said he usually had to resort to renting a lens like this. He says it does everything he wanted. Great!
