  • Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Great sports/action lens even at night under the stadium lights
    Yes, it is heavy and bulky, monopod is a must

    A great lens for sports photography. I use it primarily for soccer and basketball action shots. Images are sharp with good contrast. I also shoot with the lens hood at all times. A perfect lens for soccer and football size fields. You will need a monopod as it gets heavy over the span of a couple of hours of lugging it around. Focus times are fantastic. I never miss shots because of focus lag.
