You don't see these guys too frequently. It is an awesome lens. I am very happy with mine and it is compatible with the Sigma TC's!

Better than the OS FLD version (which is FF)?

There are, I believe 2 optically stabalized versions, the latest one is reputedly sharper than the first. As for non optically stabalized lenses, I.e. the DG macro and HSM lenses, those all have a reputation for being soft at 200mm.

I own I believe, this lens, if it is the same, specifically (as you read the lens markings) APO 70-200f2.8 EX. There are no DG markings for signifying digital coatings (specifically rear element ) or the words macro printed any where.

It is a good and sharp (at all FL and apertures) performer

And since they work with the screw drive TCs a good pick up.

Yes, Lowell, this is the same lens.
I have used it with the Sigma TC (also selling) and the results are great.
