The Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is a value option for professional shooters who want a stabilized f/2.8 telezoom.

  • +

    Excellent center sharpness through most of its range. Fixed f/2.8 aperture. Includes tripod collar. Optically stabilized.

  • -

    So-so images at 200mm f/2.8. Distortion at 70mm. Edge performance could be better.

One of the favorite lenses among news photographers, a 70-200mm f/2.8 or 80-200mm f/2.8 zoom also appeals to many serious photo enthusiasts. Although large and heavy, lenses of this type offer several benefits.

A lens with a 70-200mm focal length range, a wide, fixed max f/2.8 aperture and optical stabilization is destined to become a critical part of most people's lens kit. With this lens model now offered by many manufacturers, "Which one is right for you?

Sigma's latest image-stabilized fast telezoom offers a fine option for budget-conscious buyers, with a unique combination of features for the price. It can't quite match its Canon and Nikon equivalents, but then again it's not as expensive either.

  • +

    Very sharp across the frame when stopped down, Minimal color fringing/chromatic aberration of any description, Fast, silent, accurate autofocus with manual override, Very effective image stabilization, Decent build quality, Clever design tripod mount which is quick and easy to remove with the lens...

  • -

    Somewhat soft and low in contrast at F2.8 towards the edges, especially on full frame cameras, Can give somewhat harsh rendition of out-of-focus backgrounds at longer focus distances, No focus limiter switch, No weathersealing, Susceptible to flare with direct light sources in or close to the frame,...

The new Sigma 70-200mm/2.8 APO DC HSM lens is a well built, good-quality tele zoom that is designed to compete against top-of-the-line zooms from Canon, Nikon, Pentax, and Sony with similar specifications.

Sigma have a long history of producing decent lenses in this range. In this review, Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at their latest optically stabilised version.

    Excellent centre sharpness at most focal lengths and apertures, Very low CA levels, Fast AF, Optical Stabiliser, Decent build quality

    Lacklustre resolution performance at 70mm and f/2.8

Sigma has figured out that to compete with the major manufacturers, it has to offer optical stabilization, and it makes excellent sense to implement it into this particular category of lens.

The very wide maximum aperture allows for low-light shooting, but we found significant corner softness at wider apertures.

Even though there's a slight drop in sharpness at 200mm, the Sigma delivers excellent overall image quality, making it exceptional value at the price.

In terms of overall performance there’s no beating the Canon and Nikon 70-200mm lenses. They do the best job of focusing on fast-moving subjects. However, this Sigma isn’t too far behind when it comes to tracking movement.

Love the lens. Nice sharp pics in low light. Will be using this lens a lot in the future. The extra Pack and accessories from Digital Goja were awesome. The Pack is a $50 dollar pack. Just large enough for your body and this lens and a couple of extra things. Decent cleaning kit and a few filters.

This lens will please the most discriminating photo enthusiast and pros alike. This lens is just as sharp as the canon lens. The constant F2.8 is a big plus too. I can not say one bad thing about this lens it’s that good. Buy one you will love it, and love the $$ you saved.

This is my main glass for sports, since it was my first purchase for shooting HS Sports. I have used it with the Rebel and 40D. This lens is simply great for the price and is great for almost all sports. For the beginner, intermediate or casual shooter, you can not get a better lens for the price.

    All you could want from a 70-200 2.8 - period. Sturdy and strong. Just solid. Price.

  • -

    Focus can zoom in and way out when you are in autofocus. Just boom -out of no where. Compared to the Canon 2.8 equivalent (which I borrowed) It is a slight bit off. You will have to work hard to get sharper images.

Very good lens and packaging were really cool. I love the bundle and the camera bag along with the lens are​ decent, even though it can not guarantee a very high level of protection.

Hesitated because of price for a hobby item but once started using it convinced it was a good buy. Used on a 550 and Instantly liked the ability to use f2.8-4 for subject separation and or lowlight at a whim.

I bought this lens because I needed something fast for sports and theater photos. so far everything I've shot has come out amazingly clear. I'm used to a 300mm lens for distance, but I can crop the photo on my computer even a fraction of the photo and it seems as if I was right in the middle of the...

I use the lens with a Nikon D7100 and D610. <br />With the D7100 (crop sensor camera) it is very good for fairly close wildlife - it tracks birds in flight pretty well and produces very good results wide open. However, it is a little bit too long for portraits.
