Thumbs up Sigma 50-150 & Canon 70-200 (non IS ) Lens

Hi everyone,

My first post on this forum .
I have Canon XS with Sigma 50-150 Lens now, I want to buy the Canon 70-200 to replace my Sigma because the sigma is too heavy for me but I love it , the image quality is beautitul .
Is it a good idea to buy the 70-200 ? I know the Canon 70-200 is longer and lighter
and anyone can post the picture of 70-200 here for me plz ?

Thanks ,
P.s : sorry for my bad in English !!!

Sigma = Very Good (Compared to some on the market)

Canon = BETTER!

If you can afford it, go Canon.....

I use a Sigma and am happy with it, cant post Canon zoom, as my longer zoom is not Canon.

It depends on what you want. The Canon wil give you slightly better image quality over the already good Sigma, and of course it'll be a bit longer.

If however your happy with the quality and the range of the Sigma and are only wanting to change because of the weight issue you might be disappointed as the Canon lens is only 65g lighter, which I don't think is a significant difference between two 700g+ lenses.

Thanks for replied.


I'm talking about Sigma 50-150 & Canon 70-200 (non IS ) Lens and I'm confusing If the Canon better image quality , how come it cheapers than Sigma ?

*CANON EF 70-200 F4 L USM (non IS) = $727.99 CAD
http://www.henrys.com/webapp/wcs/sto...2&itemID=37254

*Sigma 50-150 = $1099.99 CAD
http://www.henrys.com/webapp/wcs/sto...&itemID=240754

Any ideas ?

You're not comparing like for like - you've quoted the f/4 Canon vs the f/2.8 Sigma.

The CANON EF 70-200MM/2.8 L AF USM = $1499.99 CAD
CANON EF 70-200MM/2.8 L AF USM would be a better comparison
