Anyone with experience with SIGMA 70-200mm F2.8 Lens?

I want to buy it. Anyone have good or bad experiences? It's either that or the Canon 70-200mm F4, but I'd rather have an F2.8, but the Canon version is twice as expensive as the Sigma version.

I can't comment on the Sigma lens, but with respect to your question about which lens to buy, it really depends on what type of shooting you will be doing. In general, for the average hobbyist, I recommend getting a telephoto before a wide-angle simply because if you really need that extra width, you can often make it up through panoramic captures, but if you're trying to get something that's farther away, nothing but longer glass will bring it "closer".

But with the canon you get the satisfaction of owning a white lens and standing out of the crowd
