View Full Version : Sig 70-200 as good for sports as Canon 70-200?

Just wondering if any of you folks out there that own the sigma 70-200 f/2.8 use it for sports, in particular, volleyball. My main question is can the AF keep up with the fast paced action? Also, for those that have used both, is the Canon 70-200's AF faster than the Sigma's?

Anyone using the sigma 70-200 for Vball?

I've used it for hockey, and it's excellent. Focus speed, accuracy, and sharpness were all excellent (with a 1DmkII), and easily on par with the 70-200 f/2.8L that I own now.

I use one for wildlife shots, AF is fast and acurate, nice and sharp too...

I've owned the Canon 2.8L IS and now own the Sigma.
Both as good as each other if you don't need IS.
They are Great, smashing, super :D

I have the Sigma and am very happy with it. Although I think it is a little soft at 200mm...but thats a copy by copy hting I believe...

Thanks for the replies, everyone. I have a Vball game to shoot tonight so I'll be putting the Sigma 70-200 to the test.
