I just couldnt drop $1,00 to $1,100 for a Canon 70-200 2.8... I bought a Sigma 70-200 2.8... used... from KEH. It was $550...

Took it out today and played around. Its nice having 2 more stops in the cloudy weather!!

    Nice.

    I used to have an older version of that lens and it served me well for sports ad such.

    Sigma's EX series of lenses are of good quality and measure up to Canon L lenses in many ways. Mine had some issues I had to have fixed twice (Canon's lenses take more abuse) and I sold it. But image quality wise and for AF, the Sigma was fine. The Canon : 70-200 does AF a bit faster, however, especially with servo.
