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

05_03_1_
Review Date: Mar 28, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $740.00 | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: Terrific resolution with the D100
Cons:
AF tracking not equal to AF-S. Wide open weaker than expected. Questionable QC.

This lens is terrific at f4, but sharpness declines dramatically at f2.8. The AF operates poorly with the D100, in comparison with the AF-S. I returned one lens because of an optical defect. This lens had a tight zoom ring that has loosened up after two months. Recommend this lens as a value buy for events. But, I would get a Nikon lens for wildlife.
