Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM - ISO Comparison Charts
Jul 14, 2012

Bryan has just posted the charts for the Sigma lens.

It's pretty interesting to compare the lens to the first generation Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 VR and Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L IS lenses, where it has pretty respectable showing. Second generation is a bit unfair, but also interesting! You do get what you pay for!

Sigma vs Nikkor:

Sigma vs Canon:

This pretty much bears out the MTF charts that it's competitive with these lenses - especially the Nikkor, save for falling off in the corners.

Hopefully a full review is coming, along with charts for the Sigma 50-150 f/2.8 OS!
