I have a Sigma 70-200 2.8 which I am happy with but have been offered a Canon 80-200 2.8 L (a.k.a. magic drainpipe) for a decent price. I can't afford to keep both so the question is which should I go for...
As far as I see:
Positives- Outstanding colour and image quality
Negatives- AF speed? Older and no longer widely repairable
Positives- Much newer (more reliable?), APO and DG for digital
Negatives- Image quality poorer?
I was struggling to come up with negatives for the Sigma which maybe makes up my mind before even posting this...but does anyone have an opinion either way? Any reason to change to the Canon?
I enjoy walking and use this mostly for just taking shots of wildlife I come across so I don't need anything fancy and definitely can't afford a current 70-200 2.8 (IS or non-IS) .
