|GM70#7716 date: Jul-23-2010|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I have experience with this lens|
|compared to:||Tamron 70-200 F2.8|
|price paid:||€ 690|
|positive:||AF / MF overide (HSM)|
|comment:||I bought and returned this lens on the same day. About 50% of the pictures i took were unsharp. This was even clearly visible on the camera's lcd-screen.|
The shop's assistent also tested this lens en we compared it to the Tamron 70-200 F2.8. All shots with the Tamron were sharp.
The copy i tried had an AF problem and they returned it to Sigma. I took a Sony 70-300G home instead of it.
After reading all the positive review's on Dyxum i'm thinking about bying another copy and giving it another try, because i still want a fast(er) telezoom and didn't like the way you had to switch from AF to MF with the Tamrom. The Sony 70-200 F2.8 would be nice but is in another price-range.
