Nice shots StevenC, were you on the stands or on the sideline for those shots?

I'm currently looking at this lens for a budget tele. But I'm wondering, what is the difference between the DG and the Super II naming? Is the DG, just the newer version designed for APS-C, while SuperII can be used for 35mm film? Or are they both specifically for APS-C dSLR? I can't seem to find SuperII on Sigma's website.

Anyone know how this compares to the Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 LD Macro

Thanks.

I have no idea what the differences are but on the box mine says DG Super II - How's that for confusing?

I was on the touchline with the press pack harhar.

I think the consensus is that the APO is a slightly better lens than the Tamron, but I'm sure that at this price range - any differences would be minimal and either lens would be more than capable of producing good shots.

I have this lens, but am just trying to figure how best to use it. It is very soft at full zoom...300. How would you get a sharper picture at this setting? I am using it on a Nikon D50......would appreciate anyone's help
