Here are some photos from a big University sports match in the UK... The University of York take on Lancaster University in the Roses competition :)

Most if not all of these were shot at f2.8 with a 5d3. The full album is here (external link) if anyone is interested!

Just learning how to use this lens and focus properly with the Canon 5Dc. So far I like it.

Doubly apprehensive, but why should I be?
Didn't pay much attention when doing the purchase-lot's of things going on and click click and it's order when I thought I was getting the OS version for a steal.
So I'm please with several other Sigma lenses on the Canon 6D (12-24, 50-500, 150 Macro)...so once I realized my ordering mistake I came here to read the reviews of this HSM 70-200 Macro.
One thing going my way is the 6D's uncanny ISO ability-that will help with the lack of OS; but after going through 44 pages in this thread I think I've relaxed quite a bit-more posters got a good copy the first time then not, and of those who didn't most got resolution with one trip to the Sigma adjustment facility!
In the end I just want something in this zoom range that is faster than the F4+ zooms already in the bag. Honestly though, I'll always be mentally comparing to a legacy Minolta 80-200G that along with it's prime simbling the Minolta 200mm prime, are the sharpest/fastest focusing (though noisy) lenses I've ever owned.
So fingers crossed my blunder with the PayPal button won't be a continual haunting :)

Hate to revive an old post but I am looking at this lens because it is in my price range.

I wanted a sports lens, then started reading articles about this possibly being to slow of an AF system?
I see a few photos on here of sports with it, but not many, anyone having issues with it?
Probably be shooting rec soccer games and some ice hockey, maybe some baseball in poor light.

It would be interesting to learn who wrote the "articles."

In any case, here are actual sports images from one of the non-stabilized Sigma lenses.

It's useful to note that every piece of photo equipment has a detractor, and sometimes that detractor has actually used the equipment they claim to dislike. Very often, the effectiveness of equipment depends on the skill and experience of the user. Some people are upset when they learn that equipment does not perform miracles.
