Minolta AF 80-200/2.8 APO/APO HS G or Sigma AF 70-200/2.8 EX DG OS APO HSM?

I am literally about to purchase this lens as I am a lead wedding photographer. is this a great lens or does anyone have any other option in mind, as far performance goes...


For a lot less, look at either of the Minolta AF 80-200/2.8 APO/APO HS G (same optics) or the current Sigma AF 70-200/2.8 EX DG OS APO HSM. Check Onestop-Digital for the Sigma and see if you can do better locally, though OSD will normally be able to beat any lower price.  The Sony is too expensive for what it is when compared to other models of a similar focal range and aperture.

Have you done the basic comparison research on the Dyxum website (lenses section) just to guage owner feedback and view image samples?
