    The 70-200/4 is tack sharp even wide open and incredibly light! You could easily hand-hold it at 200mm, 1/60s for most low lit conditions. The Sigma is pretty sharp too but at 200mm, it tends to be soft wide open. This problem is, interestingly enough, eliminated by using it around 190-195mm. Walk forward one more step?

    USM is marginally faster than HSM but not noticeably so.

    The sigma lens if very heavy, but if that is not a concern, then i think the 2.8 helps...
