The last Sig 70-200 that I had, I brought to Sigma for service. I brought it there w/o a collar. They gave it back to me WITH a collar.I just scored a sigma 70 200 f2.8 for $425 shipped to my house. As soon as I get it I will post some results with it. Anyone know where i can get a Tripod collar for it? Its expensive at sigma.
Hi Eric! The lens the guy is selling me is the older version (without the DG).I have the older version (without DG) i do not know if the newer versions are anny better in combination with the D700. With my D200 the lens worked perfectly.
I had the Non-DG version in a Sigma mount. Honestly, I saw no problem w/o the DG coating, none whatsoever. The HSM was very spontaneous, even in my Sigma camera. I loved that lens, and have read much that it was an overall better lens than the newer DG version/w macro...and lighter also.
