Thanks guys! I went ahead and pulled the trigger and ordered the Sigma. Should be here by the weekend. I'm looking forward to trying it out!

*update* It was just delivered by UPS. This sucker is heavy! Gonna snap some shots here in a bit.

A couple of shots of a flower on our front porch. I couldn't wait to try out my new lens. I didn't even realize there was a fly on the leaf. I really bought this for taking pictures of my son's high school soccer games. His next game is Thursday, so hopefully I can post some shots next Friday.

Checking how the Sigma lens can isolate a subject at f/2.8 with a shallow depth of field.

This is one of the most useful aspects of a f/2.8 lens, of course.

These are from my first soccer game shot with the 70-200. I got a lot of keepers with this lens.

Curiosity about the Sigma's low-light performance led to these images from the lens.

DC Fan very nice, what camera did you use? ISO setting? Time of day?
