Sigma 80-400mm F4.5-5.6 EX OS APO

Sigma_80-400_OS
Review Date: May 8, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Nice colors, resonably sharp focus, great range for the cost.
Cons:
slow autofocus, not the smoothest bokeh.

I got this lens a whiel back after a long debate between it and a canon 70-200mm 2.8 L IS, I descided I wanted the greater reach.

While there have been shots I feel could have been better with the canon with it's 2.8 and softer bokeh, there have also been a lot of shots I just could not have gotten without the 400mm of this sigma. And I paid less than I would have for the canon.

If money were no object I'd go all canon, maybe even all prime, but in the reality of my budget this has been a very good lens.
