70-200 F2.8 mark I or mark II?!

(1/5) > >>

Hi guys,

I know this topic probably came up a bunch of times...I'm looking for a 70-200 F2.8 lens.
I've looked at the tamron, sigma and the canon mark i and mark ii...but I cant decide which one!
Anyone have experience with the Sigma and the Canon 70-200 mark i and mark ii that can compare the quality and image quality?!?


BTW I'm shooting with the 5D mark III


To save yourself from return and exchange - get the Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II while Canon Rebates still last.

I agree get the Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II. If in doubt check the lenses you mentioned in

5DMKiii and 70-200mm MKii are the same generation; 70-200mm MKi is 1 generation older.
I have 5Diii and MKi. Just bought MKii with Canon's rebate: it's different.

I have Canon EF 70-200 mm 2.8L IS II USM and really like results which can be achieved by using this lens. Before bying it i read a lot of info about I generation lens as well as third party providers. I am not professional photographer, however, based on all info that I read it seems that my current lens is the best that could be bought fot money at the moment :)
