Great Lens

When I was using Canon, I owned the Sigma 70-200 lens and it is one of the finest produced by Sigma. I did have a problem with the first one on the 20D body and it had to be re-chipped. Another great thing is that Pentax has SR which would give the 70-200 an advantage over conventional systems.

This lens is sharp wide open and brutally so at f4.0 and above. Would I get it again...NO. I rarely shoot over 80mm and it would get very little use. I think I used the last one about three times.
