"Good" all around lens, but...

Steve, Camarillo, CA., Amazon

  • 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.

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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Solid lens but blurry focus

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: Have not had a chance to us the lens that much yet, but the solid construction is apparent. I am quite sure that it is going to be a very durable and dependable lens. Takes very sharp pictures on my Nikon D90. Preforms much better in low light conditions than my old Sigma 18-50mm 3.5-5?
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy
