Re: New Sigma 7-200 lens

well, if he gets the f4 , he needs lots of primes to back it up and thus, it is more expensive than just getting the amazing 70-200f2.8LIS2.

I'm in the market for a 70-200 zoom lens, mainly for sports (my kid's baseball/football) so not professional, although I used to be one. I have a Canon 5d11 with the 24-105 but just not long enough.

The new Canon 70-200 is too much although I'd love it but I'm intrigued by the new Sigma 70-200. Does anybody know anything about it? I'm looking at a used Canon 70-200 2.8 last generation for 1,600 but I'm curious if the sigma would be better at thew same price.
Decisions, decisions...

Why not look at the Canon 70-200 f/4? The sports you mentioned are out doors and the light should be good. Besides I would wnat to shoot at least 5.6 or 8 to get decent DOF.
