Summary: I chose the Sigma EX DG HSM over the Tamron equivalent since it has less coma and chromatic aberration in the edges wide open on full frame. These are important factors to me when shooting the stars and the milky way. Sharpness is great for night sky stuff with this lens.
Pros: -Great for budget friendly astrophotography., -Very little coma on the edges wide open on my D600, -Great sharpness for low-light landscapes and night sky, -Good build and size
Cons: Sharpness is not uniform wide open. Sometimes the outer edges of the center appear sharper than the center. I only noticed this shooting in daylight though.

Summary: Wanted to share some love on this lens. It's similar to other newer plastic Sigma zooms: well made, inexpensive, fast focusing, 77mm filters, very versatile zoom range on full frame, full time manual focusing, focus scale, big zoom and focus rings, flare resistant, decently sharp wide open, nice...
Summary: I shoot different camera systems, Canon and Nikon. I have the old Canon 20-35mm L, a Nikon 20mm f3.5 prime and other decent lenses, and this Sigma performs just as good or better. HSM, FTM, and f2.8 are all amazing features that make older lenses show their age.
Summary: This lens is a great replacement for most typical 18-35mm kit lenses. Provides a wider angle of view at 17mm which provides more dramatic looking photos. The lens also offers a aperture of 2.8 compared to 3.5 which makes this lens able to shoot in darker settings without having to sacrifice shutter...
Summary: I purchased this lens before for the Pentax K20d and thought it took decent pictures. Just recently upgraded to the Canon EOS 7d and decided to buy this lens for my second body. This was probably the best decision I have made. Not only does the lens focus better but the photos are phenomenal.
