So the sigma 70-200mm f2.8 macro came out? If it did why does it say on some websites that you can only preorder it?

I got a Tokina 80-200 f2.8 ATX SD. It's a manual focus lens with the A setting. Aside from huge and heavy, this lens is awesome. Very sharp, very easy to focus (correctly), and the build quality is second to none. Best of all... Cheap. I saw one on ebay go for $275 or so, but I paid significantly less off craigslist. There are good/great inexpensive options out there. You just have to keep an eye out.

Instead of waiting for an expensive 70-200mm f2.8 macro, wait a few months and get a k20d and an f4 zoom with similar focal range for much lower $! That's my strategy (for today at least).

Why cant we have both.

Great fast glass, PLUS better high ISO resolution and noise?
