Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC Macro review by kiwijono

  • Summary: I bought this lens while on holiday in Australia and after getting back to NZ, I was disappointed with the results. A large number of images were blurry and not sharp. Focus tests showed up a lot of back focus (and sometimes even front focus) at different focal lengths.

  • Pros: Great range, Good IQ, Faster than 18-55 kit lens, Good value
  • Cons: Quality (focus) issues

  • Summary: Needed a better lens then the one I got with my Sony A33. Good speed lens and I have no complaints. I tried the Tamron lens and had nothing but problems with it. I had to return it. I have-not noticed any distortions and I have taken a few low light photos with great results.

  • Summary: This is the only zoom lens that is worth taking anywhere, crisp sharp quality from both ultra wide to macro! Quick focal ring Great for video work! A bit on the heavy side but what good glass isn't!
