Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC Macro review by kiwijono
14 March 2014
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. I sent the lens back to the NZ support agent (who, to their credit, honored the "Australia Only" warranty). It ended up away for 4 weeks, leaving me stewing about it!
Pros: Great range, Good IQ, Faster than 18-55 kit lens, Good value
Summary: I have another sigma lens 70-300 before buying this one so I was impressed with that one, but I wish I can say the same for this. I'm using it on my sony a37.

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: Bought this used as my first APS-C lens coming from Micro 4/3. Read the reviews and made the selection based on the reviews. I'm not disappointed. Not noisy, sharp (not super) but certainly very good.
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!
Great price, on-time delivery, product according to the announcement!
