Review Date: Nov 23, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $710.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very sharp throughout the zoom range and aperture range. Comparable to CANON L series zooms. Cheap!
Cons:
Heavy and big!

This is a very sharp lens. Comparable to canon legendaric 70-200mm f4L ..You dont believe me? you dont have to... I have run a comparison test which you can download and see for yourself.

Here...look at this.

Pros: Sharp!Very Sharp!Extremely Sharp! It is a head turning lens for it is white all over. Build quality is nice. Totally metal.Zoom and focusing mechanism are smooth. Light weight.
Cons:
Relatively slow at f/4. I would go for the f2.8 if i have the money. Very expensive tripod collar! damn! Price is expensive compared to the sigma.

I love this lens. It is super duper sharp in any aperture value or focal length. I have tested it thouroughly. But sadly it is only f4 lens. Not quite fast enough for my wedding work. I need that extra one stop f2.8 actually but i couldnt afford the canon 70-200 f2.8L. But im happy with this lens. I heard that the sigma 70-200 f2.8 is not bad as well for the same price. But if i hadto make another choice again, i would still pick this one!
