70-200 f2.8 - Nikon or Sigma ???
Oct 24, 2010

Hi,

I'm new!

I'm looking to buy a new Lens - mainly to use for Sports, Running & Football, but maybe a bit of Wildlife too (and also Portraits!). I have a Nikon D200. I've been looking at the "Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX DG OS HSM" which retails at about £1,100 in the UK and the "Nikon 70-200mm AF-S Nikkor f2.8G ED VR II" which retails at about £1,650. The Nikon is £550 more. Is it worth the extra money? My budget (before I started looking) was £1k, however, I don't want to buy the Sigma and then regret it in a year or so! I have read reviews on both lenses and they both sound great.

Any advice will be greatfully received!

Many thanks,
Ade.
