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

145_small_1_
Review Date: Oct 14, 2009 Recommend? no | Price paid: $800.00

 
Pros: Great when it works!
Cons:
Returning for 2nd time - focusing, exposure problems.

Bought in 2006. Returned last May for focusing and exposure errors. Lens can be slightly rotated when attached to camera body. Now, in October, doing same thing! Lost bunch of soccers images this past weekend. Pissed, to say the least. May sell and finally get the Nikon version.

 
Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX APO IF HSM

Review Date: Mar 9, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $799.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Great, all around.
Cons:
Electronic connection (body-lens) problem.

I have the first HSM version, about 2yrs old. Been having trouble with slightly loose connection between body and lens. Results in black frmaes when lens roatates - maybe 1/16 of an inch - and electronic connection is 'lost'! Started with my D70S and now on my D300. Thought it may have been my CF cards, but it is not. Contacting Sigma today.
