Awesome!

  • Excerpt: I really just want to comment on my initial impressions after receiving this lens kit (lens, filter, cleaning kit) yesterday evening.<br /><br />The Tiffen filter fits great and appears to be clear enough for my tastes, but I have not had a chance to check its quality yet. It WILL allow the Sigma lens cap to still fit, although it has a thread or two less compared to what the lens itself offers for a &quot;cap biting surface&quot;.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

loose fit

RevDavid, Adorama

  • Excerpt: This hood replaces one that fell off due to a bad fit. The new hood is even looser, and I have had to add tape to the internal thread to ensure that it does not fall of.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor Design

Satisfied, but not blown away.

  • Excerpt: I have had this lens about 3 weeks, and have shot about 500 photos with it, mostly of landscapes or indoors in low light. I have, over the past 3 years, used a Canon EF 17-40L f/4 and a Canon EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (non-VC) and now this lens on a Canon T1i and 60D. The full-frame (EF) Canon and the Tamron and Sigma are all excellent lenses, great resolution. The 17-50 mm range is great as a walking around lens on a crop sensor camera.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Nice Glass but some Issues

Evan, Abes of Maine
13 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I was primarily looking for a faster alternative to the 18-55 kit lens and my 16-45mm F4 which I love dearly and use most of the time. But i needed something fasterand with better in low light and Wedding situations. Sigma's 18-50mm is definitely a very decent lens and the photos are very good but i wish they were just a bit sharper. AutoFocus seems quick except when at the 50mm end where i experienced a lot of hunting in semi-poor light conditions.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
  • Cons: Autofocus hunting, Focus Issues At 50mm, Heavy
