Versions of the lens for Canon EF, Nikon F and Sigma SA mounts do not feature optical image stabilizer. It is a significant disadvantage for a lens of such class - the need for image stabilization only grows with increasing of focal length. In order to obtain sharp images with this lens, you will need to use a tripod or shutter speeds not longer than 1/200 second (at focal length of 200 mm) which may require in some cases increasing the ISO setting and will lead to noisy images.
