Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4 - OS version vs non-OS version
Mar 2, 2012

Sigma decided to remove the OS from their Sony/Minolta lenses even though it does a better job than the in-body IS (for their 70-200 f/2.8 at least). Bummer.

I can still get the OS version from the US with a much shorter warranty but I can't find it in Canada any more and so I'm considering the non-OS version.

Any recommendations one way or the other?

Thank you,
Keith
