Sigma 50-150 f2.8/Sigma 50-150 f2.8 OS/Tokina 50-135 f2.8?
Dec 31, 2012

Hello All,

I am looking for a nice zoom lens for my Canon 60D. I would love a sharp lens for portraits, sports, wild life etc. I normally shoot free hand as I do not like to carry a tripod. I am shooting on a crop camera so naturally the Sigma 50-150 f2.8 OS/non os and Tokina 50-135 f2.8 seem attractive. I am having some trouble deciding which lens would be the best purchase. I am willing to spent a bit more for the OS Sigma 50-150 but I can't figure out if the OS is really worth $500.00 more. I have heard some of the non OS Sigma 50-150 have trouble focusing. The Tokina seems to be solid lens with very little negative being said about it.

In your opinion should I wait and purchase the more expensive Sigma or buy one of the cheaper Sigma / Tokina lenses?

Thanks!
