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

Review Date: Mar 24, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: Build quality, range, includes hood, case and straps
weight, slow AF

This lens takes some gettin used to, but after that you'll enjoy the great range and OS. When compared to the canon 70-200/F4L you notice the extra wait and the difference in AF speed, the canon focusses instantly on a subject while the sigma will take a lot of time to focus. If you're in a hurry try prefocussing behind the subject to avoid excessive AF hunting.
