I've got more if you need them. I also use this lens for basketball. I use two 430 EX II to light them.

My first shot with my new (well new to me!) lens. Not exactly inspiring, but was just a test shot of two of the 3 most important people in my life (wife and one of my daughters):

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.

No problems here:

Ice Hockey

I have more on my flickr stream (including soccer). The Canon versions are faster focusing but the cost quite a bit more. Let me know if you have any specific questions. I have used the lens for years and enjoy the lens thoroughly.

Is Sigma 70-200 a fast focus lens?

To be honest I don't have anything to compare it to as I have never used a Canon 70-200, but yes, from my perspective it is. I think some of the reviews point to it being pretty fast as well.
