As you may remember, the “Bazooka” is my much loved Sigma EX 70-200/2.8 HSM DG Macro II tele lens. I love it with a passion.
Oh, and exceptionally this shot is available at higher resolution. Click on the image (then click again to enlarge) to check detail. I often read people complaining about the Sig 70-200/2.8 being a little soft wide open. What the f#@k do you mean, soft ?!?
I’ve had this lens since 2005 I think. I can’t for the life of me remember if I had it first for Canon or Nikon, but what I do know is that I had several, successive versions for both, and each and every one of them has been of outstanding optical quality. I’ve also had the 50-150/2.8 HSM in all three mounts (Canon, Nikon, Sony) and it’s equally fantastic. How useful it would be to you in indoor settings remains to be determined, but those zooms are incredible value. I constantly use my 70-200 in Sony mount on the NEX 7 and have had nothing but joy with it.
