There are 4 Sigma 70-200/2.8s....... the last one which is the EX DG OS HSM should be close..... it's the current one still made for Canon and Nikon.... and is pretty good wide open at both ends centre wise.

Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX OS HSM (FX) - Review / Test Report
Yep, I got the latest one. APO EX DG OS. Could just be a case of "the grass is greener on the other side," but I guess that I'm just saying that the Pentax is leaving a remarkable first impression on me.

The edges on FF at each end of its range is where I'm expecting it to eat the Sigma....will have to wait to see.
