Sigma 50-500mm f4-6.3 EX APO RF HSM

50_500EX_mdl_1_
Review Date: Nov 20, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,060.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp, warm, fast and quiet HSM, sharper than non-DG
Cons:
Heavy (will you buy 1 that's light?), can't remove lens cap when hood is on, needs a good support, small aperture
 
Tokina 24-200mm AT-X 242 AF

8232atx242af
Review Date: Jun 15, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $340.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Fast and quiet focus, good torque zoom, solid build, very good colour, contrast and sharpness.
Cons:
Poor FT focus.

May be I have got a good copy, it simply works with my 20D.
It's cheaper than 85mm f1.8 but colour, contrast and sharpness is as good as L lens.

Lower the EV to reduce flare and CA.
