  • 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...

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

  • Excerpt: I mainly work with prime lens but sometimes I need more reach. I purchased this lens to replace an older sigma version and after testing it I am pleased with the results. It is better than the older version in both focus speed and sharpness. The only negative is that in very dim light it will hunt a little bit.

Fast Telephoto Zoom Won't break the Bank

  • Excerpt: This is the perfect lens that our non-profit access television team was looking for to shoot indoor sports photos. Teamed with our Nikon D-5300, even volunteers with limited experience can take some great action pics.

Sharp, fast zoom at a good price

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens because I began photographing some events, and for shooting indoor I needed a fast lens. I don't have any previous experience with similar lenses but I'm flattered from the results. I use it on a Nikon D800. I found the autofocus really fast and silent. I'm impressed from the OS (Optical Stabilizer), it made it really easy to shoot free hands at 1/60s while zooming all the way out to 200mm.
  • Pros: Affordable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Silent
  • Cons: Non Tropicalized, Uncompfy Hood

Great Lens, but NOT an L Lens.

  • Excerpt: If you're like so many people, you probably came across this lens after looking at the 2.8L ii Canon lens, and are saying to yourself "it's half the cost, it's probably just as good". Continue reading...First off, let me say this is a great lens, that is well built, and does an awesome job for it's extremely affordable price point. We've used this with a Mark iii and a Mark ii for the last year or so.

  • 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.

Jury is still out.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus
