Latest Review Posted Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG APO Macro HSM II
The lens feels great in the hands with a solid build quality although with some weight due to the fast max aperture. The weight is a bit too much for for shooting a whole day without support but a hockey game or so is no problem.

Optically my example seem to be a really good one and after all the sports shooting and everything from "macro" to birds. The bokeh is simply wonderful and creamy. I have yet to encounter a shot ruined bu bad CA (like cheap 70-300 zooms).

Now the only bad history I have with the lens. I bought it used and at first the AF worked ok but after some time it the speed became unreliable and more and more often it even stopped working at all. Recently I sent it in for service and they cleaned the motor and now the lens works great, AF is faster than ever! Though, this kind of trouble seems to be common for almost all lenses with this kind of AF-motors.
