Re: Non IS

The Canon is supposed to have better IQ than the IS version.

However if you're happy with your Sigma and it focus tracks fine, I wouldn't bother changing. Unless you have money burning a hole in your pocket

Re: Non IS

I don't know what the Sigma is like, but I've just bought the Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM (non IS version) and it is the most wonderful lens, but as Mike says, if the sigma is working well, there would be no reason to change it.

I recently commented on why I ditched my Sigma last year. I did prefer the ergonomics and blackness of it, but it didn't work as intended so that's why I went to the Canon IS. Had it have behaved itself, I wouldn't have changed.
