    Thanks for your review! I would like to see an overview of the Macro II version (I bought it the other day, but I can't send it - I live in Belarus)!

    Tell me, Arkady, in your opinion, what is it worth taking a Canon EF 70-200mm f / 2.8L USM at a cost of 13k or a Sigma 70-200mm 1: 2.8 APO EX HSM for 9-10k?

      If possible, I would buy exclusively native lenses.

        I agree, I would rather buy my own lens myself. But this Sigma kit from 70-200 / 2.8 + 2x converter - all together cost me $ 600, and Canon 70-200 / 2.8 cost $ 1600 then - so the choice was obvious

        Arkady, please tell me, I found this model from a friend, or rather, the model that you have under point 2, the paint at the bottom of the lens peels off a bit, clean lenses, everything works fine and a complete set for 18 thousand rubles. The only thing that worries me is the lack of a stabilizer, doing amateur photography, fotik canon 650D. Worth it?

    It turned out beautifully on a full frame. I like the picture of the lens. No wonder I love this lens. The model is good. Although there is a feeling of light software on 2.8. Thanks for the review / test.

      There is really light software on 2.8 / 400. At this aperture, there is one more trouble - HA throughout the frame are strong enough. I don’t know if I have such a copy or it’s a problem with the model as a whole. I clamp the diaphragm to 3.5 - HA disappears.

        not 400, but 200. I apologize for the confusion :) also when clamping the aperture to 4.5 it becomes much sharper

    Tell me with a choice on the Nikon D5300, what is wiser to take a sigma 70-200 f / 2.8 or nikon 70-200 f4?

      I would take it from 2.8, on F / 4 it will be no worse.

        Good day Arkady!
        I am on the verge of buying and can not decide. In one review, you advise sigma 70-200 f / 2.8 in another nikon 70-200 f4. I can’t decide sigma is cumbersome, but aperture 2.8, alarming the stub, I read that complaints are bad and out of order, there are fewer complaints about nikon, but there are drawbacks, although more reliable than sigma.

    Good time!
    That is, it is more reasonable to take sigma 70-200 f2.8? Why?
    On the camera, the nikon d5300 will not be too bulky, it also weighs almost 1500 kg.
    As a picture, nikon f4 is much worse?

      if there is a choice between this Sigma and this https://radojuva.com/2015/07/nikon-n-af-s-70-200-4g-ed-vr-if/ Nikon, then for D5300, I would take my own Nikon. Of the arguments - native lens, stabilizer, much less weight. In addition, I met advertisements for the sale of such Sigmas with already inoperative autofocus. If you are considering the newest Sigma 70-200 f2.8, then try both lenses yourself. In any case, the difference in weight will be noticeable. In addition, consider the new Tamron 70-200 f2.8, everywhere they write good reviews about it. Or used native Nikon 70-200 f2.8 fifth version, prices will be about the same

        Which stabilizer is the best of these two? The aperture is still a significant difference. Weight is not important to me.

    I bought a used sigma 70-200 f2.8 without a stabilizer. I am going to put it on the first dime. When I looked and tried it, I did not like the soap in poor lighting after 100 mm. What if the tripod is not always possible to carry with me? I do not want iso. The contrast is lost.

    Arkady, good. What do you recommend, tamron 70 200. 2.8 macro. Such a sigma or Canon 85 1.8. Where will the picture be more interesting?

    A couple of points. The oldest in this line is the Sigma 70-200mm 1: 2.8 APO EX, screwdriver, without HSM. I bought my new, still happy. And in the picture, which I really like, it has a minimum resolution not at the long end (200 mm), like all (maybe the vast majority) budget telezoom, but at 70 mm. Peak resolution is about 135 mm.

    Good day! Arkady, tell me, please, do you think this lens will fit the Canon 650d for shooting dogs? (mainly in motion). Will the lack of stub be critical for such tasks (using short shutter speeds of 1 / 1000-1 / 1200 and less)?

      At such shutter speeds, the stabilizer is not needed and it is turned off
