Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO review by ETStudio

  • Summary: I bought this lens after long searching and reading, compare it to the 4 or 5 canon models, and also tamron and sigma other models. as i seen it, there is no better option for the money! sure you can always seek more from your gear, more speed from the focus, more quality from the optics, and also shorter focus distance and lighter weight...
  • Pros: optical quality, build quality, quick focus, efficient stabilizer, price -performance ratio.
  • Cons: a bit longer focus distance compare to the other models.

Sigma's Best Ever

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM to use on my Canon ESO Rebel T2i due mainly to the price of the Canon equivalent. After using it once I was completely satisfied with the smooth operation, the speed of the focus and clarity of the pictures. I own several Canon lens as well as other Sigmas and found this to be the one that will stay mounted most of the time.

worth the price

  • Excerpt: I have owned the previous version of this lens, non os, and I have used the Nikon 70-200, version 1 and 2. For what I needed from this kind of lens it just didn't make sense to buy the Nikon, so, I went with the Sigma once again. My copy is sharp at f/2.8 and at all focal lengths. I do find that it will hunt a little bit in very dim light and the af is not as fast as the Nikon - the Sigma does NOT have slow af, it's just that the Nikon is very fast and accurate and TWICE...

  • Excerpt: Have always used a Sony lens prior to buying this one. I have a Sony 70-400mm and the speed of the focusing of this Sigma lens is as impressive. Great luck with it so far, have no complaints.

Completely happy with my purchase

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens instead of the Nikon, and I have yet to be disappointed. The only discernible difference is the quality of the glass, this one already has as a very minor scratch, meanwhile my similarly treated Nikon lenses that I have owned for longer do not. It could be a coincidence, either way, I am still very happy with the lens, especially considering it is half the price. I do a lot of concert shooting with it, both photo and video.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus
