5.0 out of 5 stars Top marks for money, 25 May 2012
If you're debating whether or not the Sigma 70-200 OS is worth your hard-earned cash, or if you're contemplating the leap up to the Canon L equivalent, hopefully this review will put it into black and white for you, as I was under the exact same thought cloud, so here goes:

I'll set the layout of the review, first. I'll review the lens based on categories, this will be an impartial review based on my findings. Below each impartial review, I will state how this compares to the Canon 70-200 2.8 mkII IS USM lens. This should satisfy both people wanting to know about this lens, and also how the Canon performs in comparison.

Through nobodys fault but my own, I'm not nearly as well-read as I would like to be, but in the interest of changing that I decided to give Dostoevsky a go, The Idiot being my choice.

Firstly, I should warn you that this book is a commitment. To some, that may not be a problem, and they would laugh that this is 'light reading'. Honestly, each to their own, but for myself (a 23 year old with a fairly average attention span) I found myself struggling from time to time on the 620-or-so pages, not including the supplementary pages. I should note, however, that my difficulty is not a fault of the book (which is beautifully written) becoming dull, but rather of my own inability to… Read more
