I don't consider the Sigma 70-200/2.8 "so-so IQ". Those from the C@n0n world have always been saying that pictures made with this lens are almost indistinguishable from 70-200L.

If you really don't like the Sigma, try Tamron - you can always return bad copies and eventually you'll get one without any focus issue.

I use a Pentax K100D ( ) and an MZ-S for BW film. I really envy the Canon guys with a two zoom solution for the most used flengths, the 24-70/2.8 and the 70-200/2.8. We Pentaxians have only the Tamron and Sigma 70-200, the first known for focus issues and the second for so-so IQ. There is the FA * 80-200, but rarity rulse it out.

So, what do we have in the 70-200 range? FF is important to me.
