Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 EX DG HSM

Review Date: Jul 20, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,750.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: 2.8 120-300 zoom lower cost than the white ones

I got my Ms Siggy from a known entity from this board. From the moment I shot my first shots and opended them in PS I knew I had made a great buy. It's a non dg and on my 1D for kids sports like tball it's the perfect fl. Maybe one day I'll move it own but not before I see the files from my 300/400 before I let this lens go.

Tamron 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical [IF]

Review Date: Aug 1, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $400.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Great walk around for crop body

This lens is a real keeper. Compared to what I thought was sharp in the razr (Tamron 28-75) all I have to say is if I had to sell one the razr would have to go.

Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX APO IF HSM

Review Date: Feb 26, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $625.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: 2.8 is very usable
none so far

If the white body lenses are any better than my used 03 non dg then I could charge even more for 8 x 10's. This lens is sharp and fast. I have not tried the canon 2.8 but this sig is just as sharp as my L4 same focal length. I do not mind paying more for a 2.8L but somebody is going to have a hard time getting this sig first.
