despite all the craziness going on in my life as a photographer, I still get the good things goings ons. Obviously many people seem to talk about the negative things in their life including yours truly, but the positive should get as much attention
One of the positives is the purchasing of a new lens. I recently am in possession of a Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM. I have heard a barrage of statements that you should own at least one 70-200 regardless of make, well this is my second. The other is the still currently owned Canon L but only at F4, so now I have added the faster F2.8
quite the hefty little lens (little compared to a 400 or 600mm lens). I have taken it for a spin recently though I have not had the opportunity to really test it out yet, when I get time I will definitely take it out more.
Above are two photos taken with it, both testing at different focal lengths at the widest aperture of F2.8. Of course shooting anything at F2.8 let alone a telephoto lens leaves little room for error on the focus, and these photos show the extremely narrow DOF, but there is no doubt of the potential that this lens has. Just an FYI my shooting with fast lenses is almost exclusively during my astrophotography, that being, my go to Rokinon 14mm f2.8 is used a good 90% of the time. This 70-200 has other plans in it’s future.
Who else has shot this lens? This is my first experience with a Sigma, and my first non Canon L series zoom lens with my current camera.
