  • Great lens. Cheap price

  • August 01, 2012
  • By: Brett

At close to one try the price of the new canon 24-70 mk2 it was almost a no-brainer to get this lens. I had seen people using it and noticed their pictures turned out well and they seemed happy with it. Read some comparisons between the 1st and 2nd gen canons with this lens and it faired pretty well. I've been enjoying this lens. It is on my body for about 90% of the time. Only switching it out for my 70-200 f4 and 50 f1.4 for the rest.

  • Not Sure It's Right For Me

  • November 30, 2011
  • By: David

I'm missing shots more than I used to. So I wanted a top quality, and fast lens that might take the place of a lot of my museum pieces. Certainly, this new Sigma 24-70 EX model is a great lens. It's supposed to be more at home on Full Frame cameras, but it certainly performs well on my very small, and aging RebelXTi. And here is my biggest real problem - this lens is fat and heavy - I guess it has to be to maintain that f2.8 from 24-70. It absolutely dwarfs my camera, not so much by length, but diameter. Also, it makes my little Rebel very front heavy, and two handed shooting is almost a necessity. And although Canon's Digital Rebels are not intended to be pocket cameras, when I'm using my little Pentax 50mm, I can actually put the whole rig into a jacket pocket. Not so with this Sigma! So, is this the lens that will be on my camera most of the time? It should be, being $1000, but it works against the way I typically use my camera- this may have to change. In many ways, it's the right lens for me - the 24-70 range is where I work 99% of the time, even with a cropped sensor camera, I seldom ever go wider than 28, and if I need to, I've got a Russian Mir-20! As for the lens itself, most lab reviews I've read find their typical faults, and especially if you're thinking of using this with a FF camera, you should read these reviews. But if, like most people you have a 1.5 Cropper, this lens is certainly almost perfect at all f-stops and focal lengths. My own findings after only a few days- especially faithful color rendering, fast, accurate and quiet AF, excellent build quality, sharp enough, although not tack-sharp - I've got a little Industar 50-2 ($30 on Ebay)that's sharper! The Bokeh is good, but not as great as my Jupiter-9!Personally, I prefer a little bit of softness, making the Sigma 24-70 ideal for me in so many ways. But seeing as this is only a 3X Zoom lens, I wonder if there's any way Sigma could put it on a diet?
