In case you're not convinced - check out this nice bokeh of my 70-200 f/2.8 EX (200mm and wide opened): :-) :lol: :G

Very nice shot NHL.

BTW - Where do you find 70-200 f2.8 for $699? I see it at B&H for $840.

NHL,

Curious about your location - does that mean Germantown, MD?

I guess it's too popular:

... However if anyone plan to shoot any 70-200 with a 1.4x teleconverter - This is an absolute steal - for only $60 more (i.e. less than a 70-200 f/2.8 + 1.4xTC and sharper still): :idea:

Yes that sigma 100-300 F4 is almost painfully sharp,
and at a price that is a steal.

If you don't need f2.8 it is the way to go.
