Absolutely - mixed reviews I looked at suggested it was way too soft when wide open at the 300mm end. But, for sub £60, it must be of use to a beginner maybe.

they've pulled it... darn !

Bah, looks like it's gone. The £258 one is the Di version, which is supposedly much better. Perhaps there were only a few in stock, though it definately said collection from store available too. :-(

I used to own one of those sigma 70-300 lenses, they were pretty decent for the money. There was nothing "Ultra Sonic" about the motors though..they were loooooud.

Canon 70-200 these days, never looked back :)

Yes, but that's a "no contest" :) The 70-200f4 IS is probably the best zoom lens money can buy, period.

Agreed! I picked up the 70-200 F4 L two weeks ago and it's absolutely outstanding. The L series lenses are a dream to use, no rotating ends, no physical extension on the 70-200, and it's light enough to carry around all day. Then again they are over 10 times the price of this one.

Would you choose that over a 70-200 L 2.8 is ?

I did because, I travel with my gear alot & have weight restrictions. I also got it before the f4IS was out, I'd love to have the 2.8IS but couldn't justify the big increase in weight. I think the F4 is an amazing lens, but the 2.8IS gets rave reviews as well, if you don't mind the cost & the weight I can't see why you would pick the F4 over the 2.8..
#14
I understand ;)
#15
******. I would have had one at that price. :-(

Should bag yourself a 100-400 IS L series, awesome.

I also went for the F4 L over the F2.8. The 2.8 weighs almost twice as much and also costs a hell of a lot more. If you really need to shoot in low light then get the 2.8, but the 4 is great for travel. Mine is the non-IS version, I think the IS F4 is quite new. If you can afford it get the IS. Saying that, the non-IS is fine if you can keep your shutter speed under 1/250. I had some excellent results in Greece last week as the weather was lovely and I really didn't miss the IS which I have on the 17-85 lens. The only time it might have helped was photographing inside some caves, but I had to use a tripod anyway.

If I had the cash spare I'd probably upgrade to the F4 IS but the 2.8 is just too much to lug around for me.

Yes :thumbsup:

The f4 IS one is sharper, and has a much better (newer) IS system. On something like a 5Dii you can ramp up ISO easily enough to make up for the 1 stop slower speed :thumbsup:

I'd rather add a 135 f2 if you really need speed, and you can use a TC on it for more reach :thumbsup:
