    Ok so i've been wanting a 70-200 2.8 for a while now and the nikon is just way too expensive and I can't justify spending that much money at the moment and the 80-200 2.8 was an option but after reading some pretty good reviews I decided on the Sigma 70-200 2.8. It should be here Wednesday I had to end up going with B&H because Adorama was out of stock :( Hopefully I made a good decision!:mrgreen:

    I'm on the same boat... I told everyone to give me cash for Christmas to see if I can get enough to order one of those... I read a lot about the Sigma 70-200 F2.8 Of course I'd love the Canon version but my budget is not in that zone at the moment. The thing that scare me the most about the Sigma is the reported focus problems, but I also heard that Sigma Costumer Service is great, so I'm still one step (actually a couple of bucks) away of that lens...

    Hope to hear from your experiences with your new glass


    BTW this is my first post =) Hope to learn from everyone here!! ;)

    Welcome to TPF and ya I heard some things about the focusing but when I read that all you have to do is send it in and they will calibrate it for you I was like awesome!
