Excerpt: I have been covering a College Summer league baseball team with an older 80-200 f/2.8 lens since May 2014. Due to lighting conditions and the used of 800 to 2000 ISO that was being used to stop the action of a runner sliding into home plate or stealing second base. The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM has allowed me to capture the action being handed held. The only drawback is the auto focus does not work on the 1.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This was the first add-on lens that we purchased for our Canon. We were a little torn between price and brand name. We went with the Sigma after speaking with some professionals and could not be happier. Can't wait to try out all of the features!
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this product primary for getting in close to objects for my video company. Overall I love this lens for my videos and photography. I have got some nice close up of bees in mid flight. Great lens overall. I would also recommend this for 2nd shoots of weddings and events.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have been saving for a 70-200 lens for the past 18 months reading reviews on Nikon, Sigma and Tamron. Based on what I read and results, comments of others that own the lenses and an evaluation of the cost/benefit by price I chose the Sigma for my Nikon D610. After two weeks of use I couldn't be happier with my choice. The Nikon would have been great but I didn't want to spend the extra $1,000 after looking at some others results.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: It is a relatively new purchase for me but I am impressed with the overall quality and performance of this lens. I have not used the equivalent Nikon lens so can't compare the two. However, I was very clear about how much I was going to spend. If this is your budget, go for it.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Product is great gives very sharp images, Letting in a lot of light which is great if shooting in low lighting areas. Must try it, it really is a great product without having to pay lot of money for it.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I've only owned this lense for about two weeks and have used it on probably a half dozen shoots. I guess it would not be fair to compare this to the Canon "L" series, but unfortunately its all I have to go by. Most of the other lenses in my bag are of the "L" variety with the exception of my Canon 85mm prime lense. The feel right out of the box is a bit plastic. Its heavy but thats not an issue for me. The bokeh is nice and the images are fairly sharp.
