In this dimly illuminated gym, the combination of the Sigma lens, a Canon 60D at high ISO, and Imagenomic Noiseware did a credible job.

Can anyone speak to their experience using this lens on a 5DII? I'm looking to swap out the Canon 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS for this lens, and plan to use it mostly for portraiture and candids, including children.


Canon 5D Mark II *Canon 1D Mark IV * EF 28-135mm * Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM * EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro * EF 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II * Speedlite 580EX II

Looks like the $800 is now going for the snow blower and not a new lens.:(
I will wait and see if a new model comes out don't need IS\OS.
However if a new one does come out I can use it to shoot my son with the new snow blower from inside my house now :).

fyi, a google search came up with this old thread from over 1 year ago:
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=861411

I wonder if its just that they are out of stock? I was looking to get this hopefully this upcoming spring.
