Difference is barely noticeable and I'm pretty sure in real world it won't matter at all. Is the AF fast and snappy?

I went to a basketball game tonight and used my brand new Sigma 70-200 2.8 OS.
I found the AF quite fast. I shot with a Canon 24-70 2.8 last time: I don't know how fast the Canon is supposed to be but I found the Sigma quicker. I'll let you see some shots once I have processed them. :)

Just order it from amazon for $1249, and will be here on Friday. I will take some pictures at the long weekend. Hope it can be as good as the canon 70-200 2.8L than i will be happy. :)

Here are some of my photos taken while my lens was malfunctioning. Still got some pretty good shots regardless.

OK. Need some help here. My camera bag fell off the bed last night. Everything seems fine except for this lens. It is doing two things that I don't recall it doing before but I"m not sure if I just never noticed or if it is new behavior.

One is that when the OS spins up, the image shifts about 10-15% of the field of view to the left. It's a pretty good jump. And when the OS stops it resets back where it was before. It's rather awkward because the OS only stays on a couple seconds so the result is a lot of hopping around.

Another is that when the OS is turned off and I half press the shutter, the image shifts and then quickly sets back where it was before. The OS is off, but the shift happens briefly anyways.

My instinct tells me that I knocked the OS out of alignment or something like that and that when the OS is off, maybe something still lines up normally but when it is properly in alignment you never notice it. Any thoughts here? The images seem fine other than that. I'm trying to figure out if it is worth sending into Sigma for repair.
