Sigma 70-210 2.8
 
Anyone have any experience with this lense. I don't have the extra scratch for the canon l lense. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have this lens that I use with my Nikon N80. I bought it used for only $250.00 bucks off Ebay. I love it. It's fast and sharp.

Does the yob, always a good cost effecient option when it comes to lenses. I find sigma does ok with its 10-20 2.8 and its 24-70 2.8 along with the aforementioned 70-210 2.8. Stear clear of the 50-500, the 80-400, and the 300-800, imho, they make them simply cause...well they can [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Shouldn't have any problems with the glass, much more inexpensive then the Canon and the L's are clearly better preferrably with the IS, but the non IS version still a great chunk of glass.....and the 70-200 F4 L isn't so bad either if your looking to save some dollars and get the quality.

Just my thoughts

Marc Grant has lots of experience using both the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 HSM, and the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 USM L lens..

Ask him which he likes better..

Are you sure you don't mean the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8, which is an excellent lens especially for sports. Value wise it can't be beat!

I bought Canon's 70-200 f/4 lens, wasn't impressed at all with it (for the money), returned it and got the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 EX. VERY impressed.

I attended a workshop in Atlanta quite a while back, and the Sigma was the most prevalent lens there. I only wish they'd make it for the Oly 4/3 format.

While I have not used this particular Sigma lense, I have used others and have found that they are an excellent lense. I have the Sigma 35-135 and it is a very solid lense.

I have he Sigma 70-200 2.8 HSM and it is a fantastic lens. It has been rated almost in a dead heat with the Canon 70-200 2.8 L lens. Now you say 210 rather than 200 and I don't know if we are actually talking about the same lens. Are you talking about 200 or 210 and if 210, then would it be a used lens?
Cheers,
