Comments about Sigma Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG AutoFocus Wide Angle Zoom Lens for Canon EOS Cameras:

I've only had this lens for a very short while and I am very happy with my choice. I got this as a replacement for an older Canon 28-80mm kit lens and the difference is very noticeable. The images are much sharper with improved contrast and color. I also have the amazing Canon nifty-fifty f/1.8 that I love to use and it seems to rival that in image quality. With the improved quality comes weight. Compared to my kit lens the Sigma is heavier, but the build quality is also much much better, so for me it's a fair trade off. I have a wedding and a senior portrait session soon and I look forward to putting the Sigma through a good workout.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG AutoFocus Wide Angle Zoom Lens for Canon EOS Cameras:

due to budget constraints and the need for a fast lens, i chose this one because it fit both requirements. i chose it over the tamron 17-50 f/2.8 because the focal range was flexible for my needs (a wedding). i already had a wide angle sigma lens and was pleased with it's results.

after using this lens for a full day wedding and several weeks for general use, i can recommend it to anyone needed a fast lens at a decent price. we can't all afford the canon version, so this makes for a good compromise.

the sharpness is a bit soft, but can be easily fixed up later in post processing. the lens has some weight to it and has a good feel to it.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG AutoFocus Wide Angle Zoom Lens for Canon EOS Cameras:

I use this lens to shoot weddings and concerts in low light. It has performed well. I did need to have the focusing ring repaired once, but I use my gear pretty hard. If I could afford the Canon lens I would have definitely gone with it, but I would buy another Sigma product based on my experience with this lens.
