It was okay..it is kind of slow to focus imo. Also you don't get the same level of bokha. It is an okay lens.
Sorry to hear it wasn't a positive experience for you. I've shot a full season of football with mine and was actually surprised at the high number of keepers I got - particularly at the long end. Being an f/5-6.3 yes, the bokeh isn't going to be on a scale of a 300/2.8 - however with a short depth of field of close up subjects from the sidelines I've been very happy with the outcomes. Regarding another post mentioning the amount of turning of the zoom collar, I'm wondering if you used the push/pull method with the lens, as it can do both. I have big hands and a wingspan to match, so turning is my preferred method and hasn't caused me trouble, but again, that's just me. I hope this isn't coming off sounding like I'm a Sig rep and that I think it's the be-all-end-all of zoom lenses, just that my experiences with it have been very pleasant.
