Lens vs. A700 image stabilization... which one should I use?
Mar 1, 2014

Last night UPS dropped off the Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens I plan on using next year during my daughter's basketball games (most of what I took this year just didn't cut it). This is the newer version of the Sigma lens and with the Alpha 700 having built-in OS,  I'm wondering if anybody has noticed any significant difference between using a lens OS vs. what's already on the camera?

I plan on doing my own tests, but thought I would see if others have already done testing.

I'm not sure how the Sony lens compares weight wise to this Sigma lens, but wow is it heavy. Definitely not a lens to lug around on a backpacking trip.
