Hi, basically after looking for a zoom lens primarily for motorsports (and not mentioned before) Nature and Wildlife, hence the need for IS. I cannot afford the canon options.

As im after image stabilisation, the canon options are well over a £1000. Which brings me to the Tamron and Sigma options.

I'v looked at the Tamron SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di and photos on flickr look impressive. Anyone have this lens?

And the Sigma equivalent the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM, i can't find a group on flickr so have no idea what it's like. Anyone have this lens?

I need some feedback on how these lens' perform and if they are suited for the above situations?


Many Thanks
Dan!

OK, the focussing isn't too fast but it's still OK. But it has no IS as far as I can remember. The optical quality is pretty good.
