Gets the job done for a great price. Requires skill to get good results.

  • Summary: Using on a Canon 60D Definitely best for use as a Macro lens. Bought it with intention of using it as cheap, multipurpose, fast glass. Works great in brilliant sunlight, not as sharp in low-light. It gets the job done and at an extremely reasonable price. Works wonderfully for up-close video!

Excelent walk around lens

  • Summary: I got this lens just in time for a vacation. I ordered it one week before departing and arrived on time. During the vacation it hardly ever left my camera. You can find a very good review of this lens at Photozone (Google photozone sigma 17-70 pentax). Its findings were reflected well in my use.

Good lens for round about use.

  • Summary: I decided on the Sigma 17-70 because of the extra speed with the /2.8. While using it at this aperture though, you won't get the sharpest images. It's not so much a dof / focusing issue, but rather a softness which can be noticed when compared to my 50mm prime.

Nice walk around lens, excellent color

  • Summary: I got this lens about a month ago and it has been on my Pentax K10D for most of the time. The lens produces sharp pictures with nice colour and contrast in daylight and covers a good range from wide angle to medium telephoto. The only issue is that f2.8 is only available till 21 mm.

  • Summary: I purchased this lens as an upgrade for my Canon 400D 17-55mm kit lens about 6 months ago. I am glad I did! It’s a little gem, that seems to get over looked. I did plenty of research before parting with my cash, and had my eye on the Canon 17-85mm EFS.

  • Pros: Ультразвуковой мотор, качественное исполнение

Suo, objektiivi
23 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Omassa käytössa lähes pysyvästi D80 nokalla. Sopiva all around -objektiivi. Tarkka, etenkin himmennettynä. Hsm -tarkennus hiljainen ja nopeahko. Korvasin tällä Sigman 18-50mm 3,5-5,6:n valovoiman ja pidemmän telepään vuoksi.
  • Pros: Pieni ja kevyt. Mukava valovoima, hiljainen ja nopeahko tarkennus. "Macro", eli tarkentaa telepäässä noin 1cm etulinssistä. Tarkka piirto.

  • Excerpt: Hyvä linssi korvaamaan kitti-linssin hintansa ja laadun puolesta. Tarkkaa jälkeä jo suurimmista aukoista lähtien! Paranee tietenkin pienennettäessä vielä. Loistava linssi matkoille.
  • Pros: +Tarkka, +Kattaa mukavan polttoväli alueen, +Nopeahko tarkennus, +Kevyt, mutta jämäkkä

  • Conclusion: Gick från kitobjektivet 18-55 till denna och märkte först knappt något alls. Men efter att ha fotat ett tag kunde man inse den stora skillnaden och jag är mycket nöjd över att jag köpte detta. Ett väldigt bra all-around objektiv.
  • Pros: Närgränsen, 17mm, skärpan, motljusskydd
  • Cons: ganska dåligt i mörker, tungt
