Users and owners of the lenses Sigma 28-200, Sigma 70-200 F2.8 HSM EX, Canon 70-200 F4 L USM, Canon F2.8 L USM, Canon 75-300 IS III and Olympus 50-200 ED gathered at the Ljubljana ZOO (Slovenia). The purpose of this meeting was to test the differences between the lenses mentioned afore.

Our main interest was the comparison of Sigma 70-200 F2.8 HSM EX and two Canon Lenses: 70-200 F2.8 and F4, which are at the moment the most popular and searched on the market. For a comparison we added two interesting lenses: Sigma 28-200 which is valuated for many users, who can not afford more expensive L lenses; and Canon 75-300 IS USM III with a bit more zoom than the lenses mentioned above. This lens is interesting for its stabilizer that enables to make pictures with shorter exposure in conditions with poor light without making shaken picture.

As an object of the picture we have chosen a sign board and we have placed the tripod approximately 9 meters away. All the pictures were taken with the same body (Canon EOS 300D), so the test could be as impartial as possible.

When using the EOS 300D we used a wire trigger to achieve the results as best as possible. We used: ISO 200; whiteness and exposure were automatic; contrast, sharpness and saturation were normal; record - Fine; light measurement was central.
