Hi All, I decided to take the tripod collar of my new Sigma lens and put back to see how its done. I was sure when turning the lens from horizontal to vertical and back there was a hard stop on both ends. Just wondering whether I was just imagining things? It just turns now even thought I've lined up everything. Thanks!

I recently bought the Canon 80D and when I fired used the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens for action shots and a lot of the images were out of focus. It seemed like the lens had trouble focusing and keeping the subject in focus. I switched back to using my Canon 60D and the lens worked fine. I tried multiple settings on the 80D but it still had problems focusing.  Has anyone else had this problem with other Sigma Lens?

Hi all. Please help me decide which lens to buy. I am hesitating between the SONY 70-300mm F/4.5-5.6 G SSM II and the Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM. I am working in a wet white water environment making pictures on rafting trips. I think it would be awesome to seea bit further with the 70-300 but on the other hand having f/2.8 can be nice too. I think the Sigma performs better in low light and maybe the focusing is better too. What do you think? I really appreciate a little help...

Hi everyone! I'm an amateur photographer and currently have a Nikon D750. I'm using the Tamron 24-70 as my standard go-to lens at the moment but I wanted to purchase a 70-200 to give me more range while out and about doing street photography. I can't decide between the 2 lenses as the reviews I've found online are from a while ago and they basically compare the older version of the Tamron without the VC feature. So not like-for-like. - Tamron 70-200 f2.8 with VC, or - Sigma 70-200 f2.8 with...

I have been using this lens for about a year with my Nikon D7000. Today I turned on my camera and the lens was not working properly. It works fine in manual mode. But in autofocus mode, the lens won't attempt to focus and will not take a picture.  But if I focus manually at a fixed object then switch to autofocus, the autofocus won't move but it will take a picture.

I'm a video creator and just switched from the GH4 to the C100 for my fast turnaround workflow. Previously I used the Panasonic 35-100 f/2.8, and need to find a C100 telephoto alternative. I've been doing a lot of browsing on the differences between the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 OS and the Canon 70-200 f/4 IS. From what I gather, the IQ on the Sigma is better than on the Canon, but I haven't found much on the differences in the optical/image stabilization. For my shooting style, which is usually...

At dpreview most of the user reviews tend to rate this lens highly on Canon but not so well on Nikon.  Fortunatley I'm a Canon shooter, currently with a 60D and getting a 7D MkII shortly.  I'm also looking to get a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens for shooting ice hockey.  Will the Sigma 70-200 have fast enough zoom and autofocus for this sport? Currently my only lens that goes over 70mm is the Sigma 50-500.  I find that its AF is fast enough to get the action easily, but it's too slow to zoom to keep up...

Hi all, I have a problem with deciding upon which lense to buy to be compatible with my Nikon D3200. Will one of those work properly with this camera?* Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS FLD * Tamron SP 70-200MM F/2.8 DI VC USD. I want to invest to the quality lenses as in soon future I am planning to buy professional camera, but for now I have no budget to buy both - lense & body itself. I am interested in mainly travel, landscape shooting and shooting details (nature, people,...

Hi, I was wondering if any of the lucky A77II owners could confirm its compatibility with the Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens? Would the lens need any firmware upgrade or some other special treatment to work with the A77II? Will I be able to use the focus peaking feature? Also, I hope I should not expect any problems with my other lens, Sony DT 16-50mm F2.8 SSM, which I got a few months ago? (Well, they sell it together with the A77II, but maybe it's a newer revision?) Thanks for...
