Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG HSM II Macro Zoom Lens Is about the next best think too a Nikon Lens, 2.8 is good fast piece of glass. Just remember the bigger the glass the better the picture and most of all the price,the same Nikon lens will be about $1,200.00 and the Sigma will $400.00 less. Sigma has many fast Lens at 2.8 they even have some new ones at 1.8 like there 24,28,50mm in low light any one of these Lens are great too have in your bag of tricks and if you shoot Weddings there a must have.
Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG HSM II Macro Zoom Lens is the newer version of this lens the older one well not work well with Digital Cameras unless the software was upgraded by Sigma. For you who have the money they just came out with the OS model witch will help you if you don't know how too hold a lens steady in low light like in a church that will not let you use a Flash this will be help full and the price is about $1,200.00 in stead of Nikon's $2,200.00 for there VR lens. If your new too the business and trying too save a little money go Sigma after a dozen Weddings or so or by the time you will have too replace it you would have made the money too by Nikon.
1. What I like ? The price and the speed of 2.8 lens.
2. What I love ? More bang for my dollar.
3. What I dislike ? Its a litter heaver then the Nikon .
4. Why I decided to buy it ? Price, good glass, 2.8 speed, and a 5 year warranty.
Sigma will stand by there lens as long as you don't drop it!!!!!!!
Yes I rated it good not excellent...let me explain. The zoom is not consistent! It is not as smooth as my Canon lenses, maybe it will loosen up in time.
Other than that, I cannot see how you could go wrong with this lens. Focus is fast and accurate, very quiet and takes great shots.
A great lens for your quiver.
Excellent product. Kept in good condition. I have always wanted to buy a big zoom lens and this is it. I love it. I have been taking my family pictures no-stop ever since I got it. Very good performance. I have even used this lens in couple parties and a wedding reception. The result is mind blowing. Very much impressed with this product.
really fast focusing, sharp, real sharp. i usually purchase only nikon glass but the nikon lens like this one is a $1000.00 more.
i was really impressed!!!
