    Since I couldn`t afford Nikon version of 70-200mm, I decided to go with Sigma. I did very extensive research and decided it`s worth the money. It`s been over a month, I took maybe thousand pictures with it. I can say this I`m in love with it. It`s a perfect lens for portrait works. Gives wonderful color and bokeh at f/2.8. Focusing speed is very very good. It has a learning curve as a matter of fact. at f/2.8 the depth of field is soo shallow and it`s so hard not to move with this heavy lens. I suspected back/front focusing but after I did the test I see no problem. You just need to hold very steady while shooting at f/2.8. Also you have to carry your camera with a shoulder strap when this lens attached so you can let your wrist rest while not shooting. If you want to invest on 70-200mm, buy this, you will be soo happy. Con: Close to 200mm, pictures are soft. Pros: All the rest: sharpness, bokeh, price, focusing speed

    It took me quite some time to decide on this lens. I'm using this lens on a crop sensor nikon camera(D7000). Auto focus is fast. I cannot say it's silent though. Results are super sharp. I have used it extensively for event photography. I was able get 1/100s at ISO 1250 and make perfect exposures. f/2.8 is a huge advantage. OS ( Optical Stabilization) is a boon too. Helps big time in low light hand held situations. Overall I ended up using it for 2 purposes. Events and Portraits. Bokeh is smooth and soothing to eyes. Makes subject pop up.

    This is a very useful lens for any semi-pro photographer. It is an essential to have a reliable telephoto on hand. Although at times the focusing mechanism is slow, it still produces phenomenal images. After using this lens the focusing isn't a problem. Without weather weather sealing, I'm prepared for the day I must shoot in rain, snow, or any other type of moist weather.

    I went to get the item repaired because my photos weren't coming out as sharp as I wanted. They told me it would be 2 weeks to check calibration so I changed my mind and decided to trouble shoot again first. Turns out, I had my camera set on the wrong focus. Once I used the correct focus setting to focus and recompose, all my pictures look amazing!

    The sigma 70-200 offers 90% of what the canon and Nikon are capable of for half the price. The OS works great I could shoot sharp images free hand down to 1/2 seconds. AF is fast, it hasn't caused me to miss any shots yet. This lens is my go to portrait lens and gives me professional quality at a price I can afford.... Because I literally didn't have 2.5k to drop on one lens which is,what the Nikon and,canon cost .

    Great lens for an upgrade

    I've had this lens for a few weeks now. I'm an amateur photographer that wanted an upgrade from the kit lens. This lens fits the bill. I'm still learning how to fully utilize it, but I know it will be perfect for my needs. The only complaint I have is the weight of the lens. I do a lot of sports photography, and the added weight is taking some time to adjust to, for me. Overall, I would recommend this lens to anyone wanting to upgrade but not break the bank.

    This lens was on my mind for a long time. It obviously is in that pricerange that makes it a stretch. But I shot a wedding and this lens was used almost the whole time. It is very heavy. On my Nikon D610 the combo is very heavy to hand hold, but the image quality is unparalleled! Best investment I have made in my photography!

    I'm an amateur photographer that was looking to upgrade a bit from the standard lenses. There's a bit of a learning curve for using this, but I've gotten some nice photos with it. My biggest complaint is the weight of it. It's a bit bulky for carrying around for long periods of time.
