Terrific option

  • Excerpt: OK, I'll pop for 5 stars. My copy is crisp as I could ask, focuses very fast and I do like the quick-mount for tripods. No problems at all, and though I've not run extensive edge-to-edge tests (I will), I'm certainly pleased with the quality of the image. Construction seems robust, and the bokeh looks as good as the Canon. Love that I bought it for almost half the cost of the Canon.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

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.

too heavy

  • Excerpt: Bought both a Sigma 17-50 and this lens. The image quality is good on both. But I carry these lenses when hiking. The 70-200 adds excessive weight to my pack and is just too heavy to hold steady by hand. I've good legs but only average arm strength. Buying this lens was a mistake. The image stabilization is not sufficient to overcome the strain of holding this long, heavy lens steady. Maybe best to use as a barbell (then it might become acceptable as a lens?).
  • Cons: Heavy

Nice lens for the price

  • 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
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: I've used this lens for sports, wedding, concerts and other special events and I have been nothing but pleased so far. I've previously rented the Canon equivalent 70-200 several times but have found that the Sigma lens meets and exceeds my expectations.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

nice , but not worth the price

movielighter, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens after a recomentdation. After using it for a day to get familiar with it, I found that it was just too slow for an f2.8 for the money. The focus seemed to be just a little bit off when wide open at 200mm. The lense is heavy, but this was not a factor and shouldn't be a reason to stay away from a telephoto lens, they are all going to have some wieght to them. It was sharp though for most of the photos.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

  • Summary: I bought this product because I needed a Telephoto lens. After a few months of debate I went with Sigma because, well, I like Sigma and I'm not a fan of the Canon 70-200 color. I like the all black finish. From all of my research, this lens comes second to the Nikon and Canon version. That being said, it doesn't slack on quality or durability.

Not What I Was Told

Adorama
16 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I will give this a 3 because there is not anything wrong with the hood. It's plastic, as expected, and looks great. I try to get hoods for all my lenses and this was the only Sigma 70-200mm one I could find. My lens is a very old model, so old that it doesn't even have image stabilization. So I was afraid that this product would not be compatible with this lens and i would waist my money.
