"Does this lens have the autofocus motor in it, or is it dependent on the camera body having the motor in order to autofocus?"
The quality of the lens is superb. Excellent build quality and optical performance. It may not be quite up to par with the Nikon equivalent, but it is a tremendous value at less than half the price of the Nikon. The only complaint I have is that this IS a grey market lens. The warranty card inside is for Hong Kong or Macau, which means if you're in the US, there is NO warranty, despite what the description above says. That said, in my 20 or so years of dabbling in photography, I've never had to claim warranty service on a lens. At the price I paid, I assumed this was the case and was willing to take the chance. But for those less knowledgeable in regards to the photography market, you should be aware that if something happens to the lens, you'll be paying for repairs out of pocket....
ITEM#: 15329599Sigma's APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is the second generation of this large aperture telephoto zoom lens now incorporating Sigma's Optical Stablization function, OS, our own anti-shake system which makes viewing a stabilized image in the viewfinder possible for Sony and Pentax users if chosen. Two FLD glass elements, which have the performance equal to fluorite glass have also been added along with three SLD glass elements, all which provide excellent correction of color aberration. In spite of the additions of all of these features, Sigma has managed to make the lens more compact than its predecessor, measuring only 7.8' in length. For any serious photographer where the 70-200mm focal range is often the most important second lens to own after the initial standards lens or mid range zooms. The fast aperture is extremely useful and important in low light environments or when shooting fast moving situations where a higher shutter speed demands maximum lights thru the lens. HSM ensures quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. Super Multi-Layer lens coating reduces flare ghosting and assures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. It has a minimum focusing distance of 55.1 inches throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:8 The rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus images.
