I have a trial used sigma with option to buy. I am new to such a heavy lens and have tried to use it hand held but I cant steady it to get a clear picture. It doesn't have VR so that might be part of the problem. I am thinking of buying a new nikon 70 - 200 but wonder if that would also be hard to use hand held. I have a nikon 17 - 200 and take pretty good pictures hand held with it. Is it possible that the old sigma is just not a good lens?
Thanks for any help.
