Nice lens for the price
17 June 2014
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: I use this mainly for shooting my son playing tennis and portraits. I have had good results for each use. The $750 savings over the Sony version is the main reason I bought this lens. I do not have comparison shots for these lenses so I cannot comment on that. However, I am not disappointed and would buy this lens again. I would not recommend this lens for travel or a walk-around lens, as it is too big and too heavy.
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I wanted a 70-200 2.8 but the Canon was a little out of my range.I read a lot of reviews on the sigma and most said they had a issue with the canon 7d,well I have a 7d i thought about renting one but on 11-24 2013 we attended the American Photo Model Shoot in NYC and Sigma was a sponsor,and they had lenses to tryout so I grabbed the 70-200 2.8 and was very impressed none of the issues showed up on my 7d the photos were very sharp good fast focus and I was very impressed...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: My husband and I take photos of our grandchildren's' sports events.<br />Just used this lens for the first time this past weekend. Love it's performance.<br />For the first time we were able to shoot indoor basketball games without blur and the yellowish tint from court photos,<br />At the night football game, much clearer photos with less blur were obtained.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The photos are tack sharp. A lot of bang for the buck. Has a learning curve if you have not had a large lens. A little heavy but now after a month it does not bother me. You have a extra ring to use if your not using a large format camera. When using the ring that is used on small format you have trouble using filters that you have to rotate. I use a lens cleaning cloth to turn the filter. The case it comes in is very nice.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Focus Is Great And Fast, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, TACK SHARP
Excerpt: Went to the NCAA BIG-12 Women's basketball tournament in Dallas to try out the lens. I was really impressed at the results shooting at ISO 800. During times of little action, as when the Lady Bears were cutting the nets, I shot at 1/125 second and the images were very bright. I used my foot on the back of the seat in front of me for a prop to rest my elbow on to steady the lens (it's heavy), but I would recommend this lens to anyone wanting to save a few bucks.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I'm very happy with my purchase of this lens. I was torn between this and the canon version . The price difference between the two is extremely large. As that i'm not a pro and not planning on being one . This lens fit the bill. Solid construction. Fast focus and tack sharp images . Also I prefer the black body over the Canon white. Is it better than the Canon ? No but very close in my book. Highly recommend.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
