Review Date: Apr 6, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $750.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Solid build and feel, fast focusing, usable at 2.8 and great rest of the way. Quite good w/1.4TC and usable with 2xTC (stopped down)
Cons:
lens cap (buy a Canon 77mm lens cap)

If you are not buying an IS Canon version, this is a perfectly good alternative. It's on the heavy side but can be hand held. When using TCs I prefer to use a monopod with good results.
This lens is very well made and I find it a pleasure to use.
Be sure to also get a Canon 77mm snap-on lens cap when you buy this lens. The Sigma cap is horrible, and my lens would always come out of the camera bag without the cap. The Canon cap fits perfectly and always stays on.
