Well, not sure you can get too much better IQ than any one of the Canon 70-200's. Never used a Sigma 70-200 but hear good things about them.

The sharpest point of that lens from 3.2 to 4.5

I admire your work. I think you know this lens quite well.

I thought the IQ of the 70-200's were amazing! But then I started to consider primes, and the 70-200's looked terrible in comparison.

Been trying out the 580EX II and Sigma EF 500 DG Super together in E-TTL, both shot into 60" Softliter II's. Controlled by the ST-E2, with the 580:500 at 4:1 ratio. Shot at 1/200 @ f/3.5 on the 5Dii.

"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Since the day I bought this lens it has been a favorite. I just sold my 5D and now it is suddenly a bit longer on a 1D3, but the images are better than they were on the FF!! Very, very sharp but now trying to get used to the added FL (I am cutting things off in photos that I never worried about before...:o) but it tracks beautifully in AI Servo!!
