"Good" all around lens, but...

  • Summary: The Sigma 17-50 f2.8 is a great all around lens that I used on my Nikon D7100. But I did get a lot of lens flare when shooting into the setting sun for portraits. So if you don't like the flare you might want to look at a different lens.

A totally great lens.

  • Excerpt: I normally use a standard fixed focal length lens and have several. But this lens changed my thinking. For the bulk of my work this lens will cover it and increases my working speed. The lens is super sharp. The images are far better than a couple of Nikon lenses I have.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
