  • Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Speed, versatility, range coverage, relative cost, calibration capabilities
    weight, filter size, lack of IS/OS/VR

    I get these lenses to shoot concerts and sports events. And I love the versatility of it. At 2,8 is a bit soft, but at 3,2-3,5 its great for the purpose(high [email protected]@long distance).
    For portraiture I recommend the Canon EF70-200/2,8 USM IS L(I use mainly the Canon system).

    IQ, Size, 2,8
    noisy AF, non FTM

    I bought this lens as ultra wide for my Canon 40D and when I upgraded to 5D and 1D Mk III I rediscovered the lens once again. The only non-L lens in my bag.

  • Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM

    No IS, AF*

    Just GREAT lens. Great! Color rendition is awsome. Bokeh is smooth and silky. It's built like a tank.
    On Canon 5D the focus tends to hunt IF the limiter is off. On Canon 1D Mk III this is not such a problem.

    Would be great if this one had an IS built-in.
