For what I wanted the Sigma has been a perfect fit.
After about a month of use I can honestly say I made the right choice. This lens is fantastic. Super fast zoom and also super fast refocus. I tested this out when I first mounted it to my camera. I focused on a fence rail outside my family room window and immediately moved the camera to focus on a tree over 100 yards away. It was almost instantaneous how quickly it was able to refocus on the tree.
Other positives are the quiet motor. You can barely hear it. I am still learning to be a "photographer" and this lens allows me to take very sharp pictures.
During my search I had looked at the same Sigma with the optical stabilization but it seemed a little to pricey for my budget. That will definitely be one I save up for in the future.
I highly recommend this lens. You will not be disappointed.
Very quick focus, very good image quality, wide open at 2.8 very usable images. Yes it would be nice to have OS, but I don't have the extra $$$ to get it. Yeah, it's heavy, but what do you expect for a lens in this category. It feels small and nimble after packing the 100-400 around for any amount of time. Portraits are very nice and colors are good. It front focuses about 6mm from 6m at 200mm 2.8f, VERY good in my opinion. I will tweak that in-camera when I get time.
Tripod mount is very nice also. Easy to take on and off which is nice, because shooting hand-held it gets in the way of the zoom ring in some positions. I didn't think it was flimsy in any stretch of the imagination.
I am sure that many reviewers have legitimate complaints about this lens, but for me this lens met/exceeded all of my expectations. My only wish is that the zoom ring rotated the same direction as the other Canon lenes.
The lens is slightly heavy but this is expected with high quality glass. My reason for buying this lens is the excellent performance for the price. The Canon L version is a beauty, but I think most people are mesmerized with the Canon L look and forget to look for what is more important; that is the quality of the glass. My friend has a Canon L version and I cannot tell the difference between the two when comparing shots. The Tamron version is really not an option in this comparison because it just doesn't perform.
The feel and look is professional and solid; the inner focusing mechanism is outstanding, hypersonic focus is amazing. This is a great alternative to the outrageously expensive Canon 70-200 L.
