Re: Nothing compares to the 70-200 mkII (but)

I use the Sigma 70-200 2.8 OS II with the 60D and don't think anyone could pick which lens took which image between the Canon and Sigma out of five mixed shots. I know the Canon does test out to be the best between the two lenses but I don't think 99.0% of photographers could tell which was which with minimum PP added by someone that knows what they are doing.

If I were making a living with it and time was of maxinum importance I'd brobably buy the Canon mk II but I don't.

If you're looking at used lenses, make sure you see OOC images taken with it at the settings you'll be using most. Although I haven't bhad problems with Sigma there's always copy to copy differences in any brand of lens and I'm not sure Sigmas quality control is as good as Canons.
