Personally I wouldn't buy from eBay but for the price the new Sigma is a great performing lens (on paper) so I would give that a really good look.

The Sony is also a great performer but not sure I would be willing to spend nearly twice the price on it.

I will add that this is only based on what I've read and heard as I've not used either of the options.

Here's a review that may help (with discussion on how the new Sigma compares to the Sony/Carl Zeiss and Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses).

MARK--> I agreed that Sigma is always cheaper than Manufacture. Sony price is a bit high but i guess you pay for high quality for the lens.

JimC-->Thank you. After going through the article it did make it a bit easier to decide on which lens to get. The fact that the Sigma is better than Canon lens is great. I guess i will wait a bit to see if the price will drop on the SONY and get it.

thanks both...
