Need help as I'm looking for a 70-200mm lens 2.8 which is for indoor sports like volleyball and basketball but also be able to take low light shots ie weddings.
I've done research on the net and here is the gist of what they say.
Tamron 70-200mm - slow AF but good optics
Sigma 70-200mm version 2 - fast AF but as good optics and from the reviews I've read there's problems with front focussing which I need someone to explain, hopefully these were earlier reviews and have been fixed now.
Nikon 70-200mm VRII - the best lens but expensive (3 times the amount on the above 2)
New Sigma 70-200mm OS - I've only seen 1 review and they found it good and its almost double the price of previous version.
Just need opinion based on your experience and what you have read on these lenses. I still consider myself a novice although I've shot a few events but need a faster lens to get the better shots. I prefer not to spend big if I can get away with getting greater shots on the third party lenses. Any opinions/experience will be appreciated.
