Pros: Robustessa, sharpness, autofocus good speed. Mechanism of insertion / removal of the tripod bracket very well done. Purchased used is the real deal.

Cons: Hood a bit 'cumbersome, Stafa inadequate tripod to size. Mine was not perfectly calibrated like autofocus but the assitance Sigma is excellent and gave me back a jewel.

Opinion: The lens is great, sharp and the quality of the products shots is high. The autofocus is satisfaction, fast and quiet and overall we can work well freehand: the weight is not quite negligible but the size and balance make it very manageable in the pan. Comes easily, in a medium backpack and does not create too many problems for the trasporto.rnNon would purchase it again given the sharp depreciation that suffers, but a good used retains its value over time and allows you to have a high-level lens at a cost medium tool. I've protected with a neoprene cover Photography Outdoor Gear on less than € 40 to compensate for the lack of weather sealing.

Pros: Sharpness, cost (used) f, duplicator with good yield, weight

Cons: Lack limiter f, tripod socket ridiculous lack of hooks for the shoulder strap

Opinion: Great lens by good sharpness. Smooth, fast and accurate autofocus, shame about the lack of the limiter, it would have been even more powerful. Makes good with 1.4x tc, with the 2x (version dg sigma) is close to 2 stops, but it is widely used up to 800 ISO (aps-c). If the 1 .4 x with good light is still manageable by hand, with the 2x af slows down enough and need the support of a monopod or fortune, useful full time manual focus to facilitate the attachment of a soggetto.rnDopo little 'practice you get used to the weight and swing the fly is not complicato.rnMolto inconvenient to carry on the shoulder bracket ridiculous and the lack of buckles for a cinghia.rnSe found used in good condition is a great deal! rnVoto 9 .

Pros: rn price, weight, fast and accurate autofocus, versatile almost 3 ED una.rnrn

Cons: I can not find, but for some perhaps the stabilizer is a Must.

Opinion: I am a happy owner of this lens, bright, a little heavy and goes to God with 1.4x TC e2x! Recommended for those who practice sports or nature photography almost 3 lenses on a FX we have multiplied (420.600 mm) and right (630.900 mm). Great auto focus, precise and very quiet with just under € 3000 I think is a very good investment, I suggest you invest in a (cover Lens Coat) with about 90 € protect the lens from moisture or dust, etc. seen that it is not sealed and not we will have problems in the future

Pros: lightweight, fast and accurate AF and silent. image quality. build quality. price

Cons: no one

Opinion: I own this lens for a long time and I am fully satisfied. excellent alternative to canon if it is not considered essential to the stabilization system. My copy is already sharp, f2.8, f4 from onwards is great. blurred very pleasant. much lighter and easy to handle big brother canon. also recommended to those who do photo hunting. used with great satisfaction both with canon sigma sigma 2x 1.4x with that
