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
I use it all of the time. Definitely a go to lens.

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.
Summary: Perfect answer to my problems catching the fast action of ice hockey. Auto focus is spot on most times and super silent motor. This is a sturdy product worth the money. After a while, you get used to the size and the weight of this monstrosity. When you get rave reviews for your fantastic shots, it makes it all worthwhile.
Excerpt: This is a great lens, everyone should have this is their collection. The focus is fast and accurate in low light conditions. I use the lens for High School sports and have been very pleased with the quality of the images from my Nikon cameras.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
