Which Non-Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8?
Nov 6, 2010

I had an older Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 that had a connectivity issue with my D90 so I had to sell it. I will need to buy a replacement and can't afford the Nikon 70-200mm so I figure I have 2 choices, a new Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 or a Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8. Have any of you used both? Reviews seem to be pretty similar for the two lenses with the cons being that they're both heavy and the Tamron may have slower focus. I'd be using the lens primarily for high school football, so I really don't like the sound of slower focus with either lens, but maybe that was user error by the reviewers.

Also, is there another alternative I should be looking at? Thanks in advance for any advice, I appreciate it.
