I would not buy this lens


from Valley Stream NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

Very poor low light & distinct orange tint to photos taken in doors!


Not a very good choice at all for low light


from Valley Stream, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

The out door pics were ok but the indoor low light pics were horrible at best every face had orange tint in them & poor low light in back/sides of the subject almost blacked out. I would never recommend this lens to anyone !

Good at out door shooting not so good indoors!!


Awesome Lens


from Rochester NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

My main use is for family photos and events. This zoom range works well for tight shots. The F2.8 enables more indoor shots with existing light. Along with the ability to zoom in or out makes it much easier than using a fixed 30mm or 50mm prime lens. I only wish it was faster as f2.8 indoors does not blur the backgrounds as much as I would like. I also intend to do low light videos. Looking at other reviews one would think that this Sigma lens is much lighter than the Nikon 17-55mm f2.8. I was surprised by how heavy this Sigma F2.8 Zoom lens is. Much beafier than the kit Nikon lenses and feels like it will hold up well for my use. Lens feels solid and I'm not concerned nor sorry I didn't get the Nikon instead. Also the reviews show significant distortion at f2.8 and 17mm however I am satisfied with the portrait shots I've taken with a Nikon D7100. Definately recommend this lens.

Super Sharp, Very Impressed


from Berkley, MA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Ok, I'm just going to get to the nitty-gritty. Soft at the edges at f2.8 It gets better at f4 Great at f5.6 The center is always super Sharp. I am amazed that this $xxx.xx lens is so sharp. I have a wedding to shoot with my D7000 and this is the perfect lens at the perfect price. Very compact, Image stabilization works great. If your on a budget you will not be disappointed. I have had to use my cameras ability to adjust the focus on some of my Nikon lenses. This one is spot on, no adjustment needed. GREAT LENS, GREAT PRICE


Awesome lens-great value


from Marshall,Texas  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Hey, I have to admit I did not fully believe the ratings this lens got when I was researching it. But it has surprised from the moment I took it out of the box! Sharp IQ, fast focus,well built, and good bokeh! The only reason not to give it a 5 star was I don't feel the image stabilization is as spot on my my Tamron or Nikon lenses, but not bad. I can still use slower shutter speeds, but maybe one click faster than the other brands mentioned above. I use it a lot on a tripod, so I don't worry with the IS much. Headed to Nashville to get some skyline photos next week. I will try to come back and post those! If you need a good wide angle lens and money is tight- this is your lens


Tack sharp lens


from Temecula, Ca  -  Photography Student

Used the lens in the ghost town of Bodie, Calif. The day was off and on cloudy and the camera and lens worked great. Was able to get shots into old building window that I hadn't been able to do before. All the shots came out crystal clear. Great little lens.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Rachel L  Does this lens kit include a lens hood?
Scott B  All Sigma Lenses come with lens hoods.
David W  I want to purchase a decent 17-50mm zoom lens for my a77 camera and am thinking either the Sony DT F2.8 lens or this Sigma lens. Please advise me and where can I find a good review of the Sigma lens?
SANDRA P P  I have this camera and the Tamron 17-50 F2.8 lens. Really nice combination that fits together perfectly. As for a review of the Sigma lens, you can simply google Sigma 17-50 for sony and it will bring up the review sites for it. I think the Sigma lens is heavier than the Tamron, but I can't speak for the quality of photos paired with the Sony a77.
Ramiro O  Is this lens is compatible whit SLT A77?
ROBERT H  Sigma has issued a warning that the 17-50mm f2.8 EX DC OS HSM might not be compatible with the A65 or A77, but they will make it compatible with an update. They say that it might not focus correctly on autofocus, but if you take it to a Sigma authorized dealer, they'll provide the update free.
