Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS FLD Large Aperture Telephoto Zoom Lens for Sony Digital DSLR Camera


Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS FLD Large Aperture Telephoto Zoom Lens for Sony Digital DSLR Camera


Sigma’s New APO 70-200mm F2.8 Ex DG OS HSM is the second generation of this large aperture telephoto zoom lens now incorporating Sigma’s Optical Stablization function, OS, Sigma’s own anti-shake system. Two FLD glass elements, which have the performance equal to fluorite glass have also been added along with three SLD glass elements, all which provide excellent correction of color aberration. In spite of the additions of all of these features, Sigma has managed to make the lens more compact than its predecessor, measuring only 7.8″ in length. For any serious photographer where the 70-200mm focal range is often the most important second lens to own after the initialstandards lens or mid range zooms. The fast aperture is extremely useful and important in low light environments or when shooting fast moving situations where a higher shutter speed demands maximum lights thru the lens. HSM ensures quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. Super Multi-Layer lens coating reduces flare ghosting and assures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. It has a minimum focusing distance of 55.1 inches throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:8 The rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus images. This lens is equipped with a petal-type hood. Its exceptional versatility as an all-around lens is perfect for journalists and wedding photographers. This latest

    Magnificent lens from Sigma, August 9, 2012
    By 
    Anthony M (Morgan Hill, CA USA) –

    Probably like a lot of you right now, I agonized over this decision for about a year. As a Canon shooter, I have the good fortune to be able to outfit with an enormous range of the very best telephotos made. For around the same price as this lens, I could get the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM, one of the sharpest if not the sharpest lens produced in this category. For a whole lot less I could get either the f/4 or f/2.8 in non-stabilized form. And of course, the gold standard of photo journalists, the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, albeit for a cool extra grand. There’s even the excellent Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM. What follows is yet another of my ILWR’s (incredibly long winded reviews), make yourself comfortable!

    So, why consider a third party lens at all? Well, if you’re here you know it’s because of the magic of f/2.8. All of that glass gives you twice the light of an f/4. We’re also not all made of money. $1,000 extra is a lot of coin for a lens, especially when your livelihood doesn’t depend on it. There are definite advantages to the Canon (or Nikkor) brands. Metal builds. Weather resistance (not waterproof). Guaranteed forward compatibility. Peace of mind. Oh yes, and that red ring for Canon shooters.

    That said, I’ve come to like the Sigma brand as of late. They’re upping their game and producing some of the very best macro lenses on the market, and a huge range of UWA lenses for crop-sensor cameras. I’ve had great luck with my Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM and Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD . Since I’m lacking a good lens with range and speed, a fast telephoto seemed in order. I honestly invested in Canon to own one of those gray beauties, but wanted to keep an open mind (and less open wallet) when it came to a new lens.

    So, I read every single review I could lay my hands on. I even brushed up on my German! I asked people on photo forums for every thought and photo they’d post. In Europe, this lens is garnering rave reviews, winning awards and placing incredibly well in comparisons. In the end of course, it comes down to “going rogue” or sticking with the known commodity. Emboldened by my recent experience with the Sigma 17-50, I took the plunge.

    That said, this lens is far and away better than I ever imagined. When it comes to reviews and reviewers, the top of the line lenses by Nikkor and Canon have obviously jaded everyone. The bar is set incredibly high. Remember that when Sigma introduced this lens, the first generation lenses were the target. And here, Sigma succeeds in spades. It’s only when compared to the second generation it has some shortcomings – but it also succeeds over its competition in places.

    The optical traits of this lens are complex, and when examining detailed MTF charts and other data, I’d agree with a lot of it. But where the rubber meets the road so to speak – optically this lens simply stands up to comparisons, period. I was fully expecting to see softness at f2.8, weak edges and poor contrast. Well, if you have to A/B photos with the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II at 100% to see the difference (and you do), then the Sigma has already won the first round. Seriously, this lens is quite sharp at f2.8 (especially from 100-200, which is at odds with some review MTF charts), and then at f4 competes with pretty much anything. The big weakness I’ve found exists around f2.8-5.6 at 70mm, and that’s red CA on distant (<50′) contrasting objects. The flick of a slider, or using the lens’s filter in Adobe RAW or Lightroom solves it. Really, I’m guilty of pixel peeping in the first degree, and scan around my shots at 100% far too often. Not only is this completely unrealistic, but extremely gratifying when I can’t find anything to complain about! Once you move beyond 70mm – say 135 up this lens is amazing. Photos of flowers at f2.8 reveal every single hair on a honey bee, and all the little crystals of pollen on its legs and the flower stamens. And it gets sharper from there? Wow.

    Okay, optically this thing…

    Excellent 70-200 2.8 lens, but not perfect., December 17, 2010
    By 
    Amazon Customer (Austin, TX) –

    Actual score: 4.5 stars

    12/15/2011 – Update. I’ve had this lens a whole year now and still love it – more every day. It is solid, fast and accurate. I’m kind of sorry I seem to have started quite a stir in my description of the Stabilization sound. It really is not bad at all. It was more of a first impression. No regrets on this lens.

    I also have a TOKINA 11-16 f2.8, and a Canon 17-55 f2.8 These three lenses are all I need for quality shooting from ultrawide to telephoto. -TXJAVA

    2/1/11 – update. Official price drop. New price now $1399 – that’s more like it… If you have been on the fence with this lens, time to give it another look. I still love this lens. -TXJAVA

    12/15/11 My apologies in advance for a long review. There are not a whole lot of reviews out there for this lens so I’m hoping I can help some others make a good decision. Summary: It is a great Lens, but perhaps not for everyone.

    I have been watching this one since it was announced. I tried it out at the local Camera shop and fell in love with it. I decided at that moment, I was going to own this lens.
    The initial drawback was always price. At $1699 (sixteen-ninety-nine) it seems a bit high. Yes, this is a quality lens with a 2.8 constant aperture throughout the zoom range and a very good OS optical stabilization (IS in Canon’s terminology) but at that price it is only a few hundred less than the highly rated excellent Canon 70-200 2.8 IS ii. So I’ve been waiting patiently for the price to move.

    Well one day, quite unexpectedly, the price at the “B” Camera vendor was $350 (three-fifty) less. Suddenly, at $1349 (thirteen-forty-nine) it was near my strike price (I think the lens should sell for $1200 or so). So I watched to see if the “A” internet vendors would match. They did not. I knew this was less that wholesale for the lens, so I ordered one from the “B” vendor. (The next day the two “A” vendors matched the price – Sorry Amazon, you were not fast enough). The lens arrived a couple days later, VERY well packed. With Amazon, packing can be a bit hit or miss. By the time the lens arrived, all the vendors were priced at the original $1699 (sixteen-ninety-nine). Hmmm, maybe it had been a price mistake.

    So enough of that – What do I think of the lens? I still love it; however, there was something that I had not noticed in the store. When the OS system started up (1/2 press of the shutter key), it made a fairly loud click and then the Gyros sounded like very distant fire truck sirens. I literally though that there was a fire truck outside. But it turned out to be coming from the lens. Mind you, it was not loud, but it was disconcerting. I own the excellent Canon EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS and the IS system on that is near silent. I’ve been spoiled by that lens. I went down to the camera shop to see if their copy had the same sound. It did have some OS sound, but I had not noticed before above the ambient sound in the store. The store model did not sound like my copy. So I called the “B” Vendor and they quickly sent me a new lens.

    The new lens arrived today and it too had the OS sound but not as noticeable as the first copy of the lens (I was able to compare side by side). Is the sound bad? No not really, but it is different than the low level “whurl” of the Canon IS system.

    That said, the OS system does work very well. It is especially nice at the tele- end of the zoom. You can really see that camera shake through the viewfinder, and then you press the shutter release ½ way and suddenly it locks into place. Very nice, very cool. I have been able to take nice sharp pictures as low as ¼ second – and that is at the long end of the zoom. Impressive!

    The rest of the build quality is very good. Both the focus and the zoom rings operate very smoothly and with just the right amount of resistance.

    The lens is heavy (over 3 pounds). The rebel series cameras will benefit from the extra holding power that the extra battery grip offers. It comes with a tripod collar so you can use it on a monopod. A lens hood included (wish Canon would include hoods with all their lenses) there is even an extender for APS-c crop sensor cameras. However, I don’t intend to use it.

    The pictures I have taken have all been great. It is a bit soft at 2.8 (as many lenses are), but still within my tolerances. The 2.8 aperture really helps for indoor shots. It is great because you can sit across the room and shoot away without bothering those in the room. F4.0 lenses just do not give you enough light for indoor shooting, especially sports. Seems like it would be a great lens for weddings and other indoor events. As for picture quality, I’ve seen some web reviews that compare this with the Canon and the Sigma comes out pretty good. I do not see any CA at all on my copy. Focus is fast and accurate…

    Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX OS, great lens, no need to go homeless, March 17, 2011
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This is a great lens. I’ve had this lens for a few weeks now and I’ve mostly been shooting sports. The lens is perfect for indoor sports where the gym/court/field is typically poorly lit. The lens is fast enough to freeze the players mid play and the autofocus can keep up with the action. The range is plenty to shoot players from across the gym/court/field. Can’t wait to take it outside for soccer season.

    I also played with the Canon 70-200 which is also very nice. Its more a case of which type of caviar you prefer. However, the savings with the Sigma will allow me to pay my mortgage and still have left over for a nice prime lens to add to my growing collection of lenses.
