Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM for Canon

Price: $1,399.00
Instant Savings: $200.00
You Pay: $1,199.00
Product Highlights
  • Up to 4 Stops of Optical Stabilization
  • Optimized for Canon Full-Frame DSLRs
  • Auto and Manual Focus
  • Super Multi-Layer Lens Coating
  • Fast f/2.8 Maximum Aperture
  • Fast & Quiet Hyper-Sonic Motor (HSM)
  • 77mm Filter Size
  • Excellent for Action/Low-Light Shooting
  • 55.1" (140cm) Close Focusing Distance
  • Lens Hood & Adapter Included

The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM for Canon is the second generation of large-aperture telephoto zoom lenses incorporating Sigma's OS (Optical Stabilizer) anti-shake system. It offers the equivalent of shooting at shutter speeds 3 to 4 stops slower than without OS, thus allowing handheld telephoto zoom shooting even in poorly lit conditions. Its HSM ensures quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focusing.

It features a large maximum aperture of f/2.8 that remains constant throughout the zoom range, making it incredibly valuable when shooting in low light situations such as wedding or other events. It is also great when shooting fast-moving subjects such as sports, when fast shutter speeds are needed to capture fleeting moments. The 70-200mm f/2.8 is fast and versatile and at a length of 7.8 (19.8cm) will be a tool that seldom sees the inside of your camera bag. The lens comes with a petal-type lens hood plus an adapter to extend its length for users with APS-c cameras.

Note: This lens is optimized for full-frame Canon DSLRs and may also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors but it will increase focal length to about 100-300mm with most cameras.

Note: When using the OS function of the lens with a camera which incorporates a stabilizer unit, please turn the camera's stabilizer unit off.

Note! Optical Stabilizer (OS) function will not work with film SLR cameras except Canon EOS-1V

Sigma's New APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is the second generation of this large aperture telephoto zoom lens now incorporating Sigma's Optical Stabilization (OS) anti-shake system. It uses two sensors inside the lens to detect vertical and horizontal movement of the camera. It works by moving an optical image stabilizing lens group, to effectively compensate for camera shake.
Two FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have the performance equal to expensive fluorite glass, and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, combine to provide excellent reduction of aberrations and image quality.
The rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus images (bokeh).
Sigma has managed to make the lens more compact than its predecessor, measuring only 7.8" (8.64cm) in length.
The Super Multi-Layer lens coating reduces flare ghosting and assures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range.
The exterior of this lens is EX-finished to denote the superior build and optical quality, and to enhance its appearance.
The lens DG designation translates to large-aperture lenses with wide angles and short minimum focusing distances. With an abundance of peripheral illumination, they are ideal lenses for Digital SLR Cameras while retaining suitability for traditional 35mm SLRs.

    I've now used this lens for over 6 months and highly recommend it! First of all, I shoot on a crop-sensor Canon 60D. The Sigma is very sharp at f2.8 and goes to another level in the f4.0-8.0 range. I have blown up images to 14"x14" for a calendar and they are crisp corner-to-corner. My primary lens is a Canon 24-105mm L and I can comfortably say that this Sigma has a higher level of image quality the Canon L cannot match. The bokeh is creamy, the build is rock-solid, the tripod collar is strong & easy to use, and I really like the padded bag for storage. The auto focus is very fast and accurate – I took the lens to the NHRA drag races and could track approaching top-fuel dragsters off the line. And honestly, I like the black finish – I don't want to advertise expensive gear with a white lens.I asked myself the question: "Would the Canon give me pictures that are one-thousand dollars better?" I am not a professional so I would never see a return on the additional investment. I used the money I saved to buy a set of macro tubes, polarizing filter, and a very nice tripod & ball-head set (with money to spare). Honestly, I believe I will have better images with the Sigma and supporting gear vs. what I could have gotten with the slightly-sharper Canon alone. (By-the-way, the Sigma ROCKS as a macro lens when combined with Kenko macro tubes – the tubes retain the sharpness and cut the focusing distance down to just a few centimeters.)I have not used this lens on a full-frame camera and cannot comment about this lens to those users. Most reviews say this lens is soft on full-frame edges at 2.8. Since I use a crop-sensor, this is not an issue at all – the Sigma is sharp corner-to-corner at 2.8. If I had to find a fault, it would be the lack of weather sealing. But when I consider the price, build quality, and image quality on my crop-sensor – I am comfortable with giving this lens 5 stars!

    I have both good and bad to say about this lens. I will start by saying that I am shooting with a Canon 7d mostly using the kit supplied 28-135 , I must have gotten lucky with my copy, it gives me great quality, crisp and clear and for me the range of this lens is perfect, if it came in an f2.8l series I think I could work with just one lens, so my mission is to start adding pro quality f 2.8 lenses.
    I read every review on every web site about the Sigma 24-70 and I tried it, please see my review under that lens , to sum it up, I got mostly blurry shots with that lens, I thought wow, I must really need the image stabilization after all, I can,t get a clear shot here. So I sent it back and decided to try the Sigma 70-200 lens, I just can't justify the $2500 price tag of the Canon, and so many of you have given the Sigma great reviews, I though the price was fair so I ordered it.
    I think the lens is a thing of beauty, the finish is top quality , I thought the feel of the lens was perfect, it fit my hand like it was custom made for me, the monopod collar fit right into the palm of my hand, the zoom ring was perfectly positioned for my fingers and it adjusted easily and smoothly, It fit on the camera body nice and tight, some of you have mentioned that it had a loose feel, mine was great.
    The lens hood was fine and the lens just looks awesome , also the HSM focusing was totally silent and very fast. Some have said, it's very heavy, of course it's heavy, the lens is a foot long and it's high quality, I found the weight to be a bonus, made it easy to balance and hold on to.
    But now for the important part, how do the shots look?
    For the sake of argument, i am a good photographer, doing mostly senior portraits, theatrical headshots, and I have done five weddings, all outdoor events, but now I have two Fall weddings booked , both in churches, so it's time for me to get the top of the line glass.
    I started using one of my daughters as a volunteer model, took dozens of shots, trying various f stops and shutter speeds, flash , no flash, zoom in , zoom out, I got a few great shots, but again lots of blurry shots.
    Now I know the Sigma shows as a full frame lens, but is also listed for the crop sensor cameras, such as the 7d, but it should be able to focus correctly, it is being sold for a Canon camera after all.
    Round two. For this test I wanted to shoot at f2.8 because that is what I am buying the lens to do..low light shooting.
    I went to a dog agility event indoors, with those big sodium lights, perfect for a good f2.8 lens.
    I shot at f2.8' about 1/500. To 1/640 shutter speed, various iso settings but the camera seemed to like 800 to 1200 iso, I thought I was doing great, I loaded the shots into my 27 iMac expecting to be knocked out, but instead I had not ONE tack sharp image.
    I don't mean blurry dog because of how fast he was running, I mean the entire shot, soft and some just plain blurry. Not ONE usable shot!
    I know you might be saying, use your micro focus adjustment to fix it , but no.
    The lens Just will not give me sharp shots. If I had taken my new lens and shot a wedding with these results, I would have a nightmare on my hands.
    So here is the bottom line, some of you are getting good results with this lens, and I wish it worked for me, I would have loved to own this lens and maybe if you are shooting with a 5d Mll, full frame, the lens might be your answer.
    But speaking just for me and my Canon 7d, it just won't do the job.
    If you decide to try this lens make sure you give it a good workout test session BEFORE a real job.
    I'm ordering the Canon 24-70L f2.8 and I will save up again and hope for a price drop on the canon 70-200 f2.8 IS USM.
    Also as a parting note, I tried various focusing modes at the dog event, I know how to use my camera, I never have trouble with focus, the Sigma lens just won't sync up with my 7d
    I hope this helps any other shooters who are looking at this lens.

        Sigma's Best Ever

        By Tideman1

        from Tennessee

        Comments about Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM for Canon:

        I purchased the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM to use on my Canon ESO Rebel T2i due mainly to the price of the Canon equivalent. After using it once I was completely satisfied with the smooth operation, the speed of the focus and clarity of the pictures. I own several Canon lens as well as other Sigmas and found this to be the one that will stay mounted most of the time. I take a lot of indoor sports shots and this lens overcomes the typical low lighting problems found in most gyms. It's a great lens and I appreciate B&H for introducing me to it.

            Purchased lens from B&H after reading tons of reviews. Have been extremely happy with image quality, bokeh and accurate colors, shooting handheld.
            If you are looking for a great lens, don't waste your money on the more expensive lenses when you can achieve great results from this 70-200. I've been using on Canon 6D and 70D. Also purchased Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art lens. Love it too. Don't hesitate. Just get it. You won't be sorry. Have a 24-70 2.8 on order. Kudos Sigma.

              Comments about Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM for Canon:

              If you're like so many people, you probably came across this lens after looking at the 2.8L ii Canon lens, and are saying to yourself "it's half the cost, it's probably just as good". Continue reading...First off, let me say this is a great lens, that is well built, and does an awesome job for it's extremely affordable price point. We've used this with a Mark iii and a Mark ii for the last year or so. We bought 2 of these lenses because we couldn't afford to buy two of the Canon 70-200 2.8 L ii Lenses. These lenses did an awesome job for us, and we've been very happy with them. Recently, I purchased the L lens and had a chance to truly compare the two. Let me say with 100% honesty, there is NO comparison. The 70-200 2.8 L ii lens blows this out of the water. It's not that this is not a great lens, but it's simply that the 70-200 L ii lens IS an INCREDIBLE lens. I will not directly compare them because the sigma is half the cost, and I don't think that's a fair comparison. However, with 100% honesty, from some one who owned/owns both. If you can afford the 70-200 2.8L ii Lens,do it. It's sharper, brighter, more accurate colors, much nicer focus ring, and build. If you're a couple hundred dollars short, save up the money, and get the L lens. Please take note, I'm not comparing this with the model 1 version of the L Lens. That one is not as good as the model ii. If you can afford L, get it, if you can't, get this lens, and you'll be happy. With that said, if you buy the sigma lens, do yourself a favor, and don't rent or borrow or try the 2.8 L ii lens, because you WILL see a difference, and it'll shock you. Either way, Sigma made a great lens here, and it's half the cost.

                I've only owned this lense for about two weeks and have used it on probably a half dozen shoots. I guess it would not be fair to compare this to the Canon "L" series, but unfortunately its all I have to go by. Most of the other lenses in my bag are of the "L" variety with the exception of my Canon 85mm prime lense. The feel right out of the box is a bit plastic. Its heavy but thats not an issue for me. The bokeh is nice and the images are fairly sharp. The issue for me is the focus which seems like it takes a second to lock in to the subject and then it seems to wonder a bit. Some of the images in post have been a little soft while others have been sharp. It's possible it could be a learning curve with this lense but it is troublesome to me.

                Comments about Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM for Canon:

                So far I have only used this at the zoo and theme parks but it works extremely well. I have rented its comparable canon version and see no difference between them. I don't use my camera for my bussiness but it is comfortable to use and takes great sharp pics. I am looking at other sigma gear as the quality seems very good.

                It weighs a ton but I love it anyway.
                I wish it had a beep or a prompt of some sort to remind you to turn off the stablizer

                Comments about Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM for Canon:

                When I upgraded to a full-frame sensor camera body, I had to find a replacement for my 50-200mm f/4-5.6 lens that I was using, as my old lens was designed for APS-C sensors. Torn between the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM and the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 OS HSM. As my budget was a concern, I decided to go with the Sigma. I am very satisfied with that decision.

                The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 is a large lens that is built very, very well. The size of the lens and the quality of the build translates to a lens that gets pretty heavy after hauling it around. But really, for the image quality offered by this lens, I cannot complain about how heavy it is. I'd much rather lug around a heavy lens that takes incredible photos than to carry around a feather-weight that takes photos of questionable quality. And this lens definitely pays off, in terms of quality!

                The autofocus seems to lock onto the desired target in an acceptable amount of time and it does so very quietly. I notice that this lens does not seem to hunt like my Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 did. It finds the target and locks on to it, tack sharp. But, if it doesn't quite find the target you desire, don't worry... the full time manual focus will help you fine tune your focus.

                Yes, this is a heavy lens. But, with the weight, you get a lens that is built like a tank and takes amazing photographs. It is a very good alternative to the Canon L-series counterpart and would play very well with the other lenses in a professional's camera bag, as well as photography hobbyists, alike.

                I just purchased that lens after selling my L lens and I absolutely love. So sharp and focuses pretty quick. I see no reason to buy a Canon lens that cost twice the price..

                Can hand hold at a 50th with no blur. The OS (stabilization) flickers from time to time. Not sure if that is normal or not. I'm use to the zoom ring being closer to the camera body and this one is at the end if the lens and going to take some getting use to.

                    This lens is great except from 180-200mm it then becomes very soft.
                    I even sent out my 7d to see if it was missing focus it was so bad.
                    I am currently checking into how to get this lens serviced and how long it will take.
                    I shoot allot of sports and need that 200m zone

                      So far so good. If had this lens for about two weeks now and no problems at all. It's very fast and produces sharp images. What more can you ask for? Yeah, it may be heavy, but you get what you pay for! This has a ton of glass and is a pro lens. I love it! The fact that I can get it at half the price of the canon is amazing!
