I have the OS and love it, sure it can be sharper at 200mm even stopped down, but I got it for portrait and events/wedding so that's not a major concern. The stabilization works as it should, and some claim it to be just as good as the Canon and I can believe that. As for sharpness wide open it's definitely sharp, it may need some AFMA and should be good for anyone. The bokeh is my favorite with this though, very smooth and creamy, and gets somewhat swirly.
Focus speed is silent and fast as others will say, but the Canon is faster. And you might miss the weather-sealing, although that either matters or it doesn't, for me not really. Best part was I got this under 1K, and I chose this over the 70-200 2.8 non IS, the Sigma beats that
I'm on a crop body for this
