Sigma delivers great value w/24-70 f2.8

By

from Olympia, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this lens because I was lacking the focal range and wanted to compliment a 70-200vr w/o breaking the bank. I really wanted the nikon 24-70 but could not justify the price. I've been using it as a portrait lens, action shots for wide angle and general walking around glass. Feels solid. Certainly not a pro-level metal lens, but as mentioned - those cost lots more. Getting good results. I wish it wasn't a telescoping lens, but on the other hand it makes it more portable when walking around. The 82mm lens means I have to purchase another ND filter. All in all, I think it's a great lens for the price. The only thing I haven't been able to do with it yet is getting a decent starburst. It does give more flare than I'd hoped. I'd recommend this lens.

This is Super Nice

By

from Greensboro N.C.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

It's clarity is splendid. The weight is a nice balance on my D7100. I wasn't sure what to think when I purchased this lens, but it really surprised me. It has a nice fall-off at 2.8 . This is now my preferred lens for portraits and weddings.

Very good alternative to Canon/Nikon len

By

from Montana  -  Pro Photographer

I still cannot believe how inexpensive this lens is for how good it is. I have one for my Nikons AND my Canons. Very sharp, very clear, lightweight.

A good value.

By

from Spring Hill, KS  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Of course the "gold standard" for a lens in the 24-70mm range is the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 Series II but for some of us it's price is prohibitive. The Sigma 24mm-70mm f/2.8 EX Aspherical IF EX DG HSM Lens for Canon is a viable choice as are the samples from Tamron and Tokina. The Tamron, in my opinion, is also too expensive for what it is. The debatable advantage of the feature 'image stabilization' is marginal. Plus that increases the cost. And the price is the driving factor for buying this level of lens as opposed to the Canon. I have read other reviews that the Siggy was soft and not as sharp. I found that to not be the case in the one I bought. Is is as good as the Canon? No it is not, but than again it is less than half the cost. Is it good? Yes, it is and in real world photography, in all but the most critical circumstances, you may never notice the difference. It is not weather sealed. It is heavy. It requires 82mm filters. It comes with a nice carrying case and a lens hood. On my copy the auto focus is quick and silent. It is spot on as it came out of the box on my 1D Mk III. The Siggy is a valid alternative to the Canon for most of us and a better lens than the Tokina and a better value than the Tamron.

Perfect addition for full frame projects

By

from Largo, FL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This lens really has the range and sharpness I was looking for with I purchased the Sony A850. I just upgraded to full frame and am very pleased with the results I have been getting shooting landscapes and portraits. Always been a Sigma Lens fan and this is one of the best.

Love this product

By

from Lansing, MI  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have been using this product for a little over a week now and absolutely love it! I bought this for a wedding that I am doing in September but have found that it has such good tack sharp images I have had a hard time putting my 50mm back on my camera just because of the versatility of this lens...Also, the wide angle - perfection! Doesn't distort the image yet captures soooo much!

I used this for motorcross over the weekend. Great focus and color rendition. Big plus: no chromatic abberation.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Is this lens compatible with a Canon EOS Rebel Xti?
Rich K  Yes you can use this lens with your APS-C camera but your focal lengths will be slighty longer as this is designed for a full frame sensor. I would not buy any ef s style lens unless you want to later duplicate all of your lens assortment if you decide to use a FF sensor in the future. EF-S lenses will not work with FF cameras.
Patricia A  I am looking at getting the 24-70mm f/2.8 to use with my 60D? Will this be compatable with my camera and does it have the image stabilizer with this lens? I also have a T1I could it be used with that as well?
JANELL G  I just bought this lens and use it with my 50D not sure about your T1. Before I bought this lens I called Adorama and they were very helpful.
Lyn P  Why is this lens more expensive than the macro version? What are the primary differences that would lend me to spend the additional money?
ERIK S  I had the original 24-70 f/2.8 Macro. It was a really good lens for its $450 price. I upgraded to the newer HSM version, spending double the price, and I'm extremely glad I did. First, the HSM motor is quicker, quieter and accurate. I'd had issues with the older version focus searching more often in low-lit environments. Second, while the sharpness of the older version was exceptional wide open, the newer HSM is equally as sharp and maintains its sharpness closer to the edge of the frame, notably on full-frame cameras. Third, the zoom ring is much smoother. Fourth, the lens is shorter and more compact in size. You don't have the problem of the lens always extending when facing downward like with the older version. That was always a nuisance. Five, the overall build of the lens is much more professional, durable and substantial. The older version was very 'plasticky.'
Lyn P  Thank you Erik. This was the answer I was needing! I appreciate your thorough answer and time; it was very helpful and just in time!
