Excerpt: As a 'Prosumer' as B&H would call me, I did not want to spend the money for the Nikon version of this lens yet I wanted to have the same features in a good lens. I am growing a p/t business doing portraiture work and needed some quality without taking out a second mortgage ;-) This lens meets all my needs and the picture quality is fantastic...in fact, I don't see why anyone would buy the Nikon when lenses like this are available. Now...
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
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: This lens is such a great buy. My boyfriend and I always purchase from B&H Photo and we wouldn't think of going anywhere else. The lens came in a great padded bag to pack the lens away in complete with a strap for easy travel. I am very happy with my purchase!
Excerpt: So far I have only used this at the zoo and theme parks but it works extremely well. I have rented its comparable canon version and see no difference between them. I don't use my camera for my bussiness but it is comfortable to use and takes great sharp pics. I am looking at other sigma gear as the quality seems very good.
