Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM


Excellent center sharpness through most of its range. Fixed f/2.8 aperture. Includes tripod collar. Optically stabilized.

So-so images at 200mm f/2.8. Distortion at 70mm. Edge performance could be better.

The Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is a value option for professional shooters who want a stabilized f/2.8 telezoom.

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


Sigma's fixed-aperture mid-range zoom is a long-standing favourite

Value for money ; Overall performance ; Dual-mode image stabilizer

Slight loss of sharpness at full zoom ; f/2.8 maximum aperture makes it big and heavy

Even though there's a slight drop in sharpness at 200mm, the Sigma delivers excellent overall image quality, making it exceptional value at the price.

a bit too soft wide open at the edge of full frame,, significant vignetting on full frame,, cooperation with converter might have been better in some areas.
