Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Aug 17, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: build, IQ, sharpness, colour reproduction, weight, price
Cons:
none

If you can get away with F4 then buy this lens. I am very impressed with it.
I use it for outdoor sport and also portraiture.
I also have the 135L if I get stuck in low light so they would well together.
This lens produces A+ quality images.
Big plus also is the feather-like weight
Highly recommend especially if you cant afford the F2.8 version

Pros: sharpness, build, colours

Really nice landscape lens and then doubles as a nice walk around if you have a crop body.
Some may say not quite wide enough but it works for me.
Produces high quality images
Highly recommend

Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG APO MACRO HSM

Review Date: Aug 17, 2008 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: price, build, feel
Cons:
soft wide open

Sent this back for calibration numerous times and still came back soft.
I paid for f2.8, I expect to be able to use it.
Sigma need better quality control

Positive notes would be the excellent feel and build quality

It just doesn't cut the mustard for me
