Sigma's Quality Control Needs WORK !

Seal-Tech, Amazon
18 May 2009
  • Summary: Bought two sigma 17-70mm. First one back-focused really bad. Sent it back for replacement. Second/replacement lens had a "de-centering" issue, where the subject on the left side of photo was blurry and the right side was in focus. These were for Nikon mount. I once owned a canon mount version that was nothing short of perfect. So, I was very disappointed when I got two bad versions for Nikon mount. Went back to the Nikon 18-70mm. Amazon's service Rocks!

This is a bad Amazon seller partner.

  • Summary: When this item was in stock on Amazon via this seller (Electronics Basket), it was classified as NEW. I ordered the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM lens from them for my K5 and to my surprise it merely came in a plain white box with just the caps and hood but no instructions or warranty information. They claimed it was still new. I promptly returned it and got my money back at a small cost of $6.00 shipping. I never believed them when they said it was still new.

Purchase agreement not honored.

  • Summary: Amazon had a camera lens listed at a great price. I placed an order, paid, and received an order confirmation. Two days later I received an email from UPS that the order had been canceled for delivery. Amazon was unaware. The seller claimed they had no more in stock, but their website showed 12 in stock at a higher price. Beware I found this to be dishonesty for more money.

Disappointing - tried two - both bad

D. VanderZee, Amazon

  • Summary: I had read several positive reviews of this lens, and it looked to be a very good fit for my needs. I purchased one and when I tested it, I found it to be very blurry on the right side at 70mm (large aperatures esp.). I exchanged it for a second copy. This one was blurry on the left at 50mm. I returned it. I am now going to try the new Tamron 17-50 F2.8. Not sure how that will perform, but I have given up on this lens.

  • Summary: Unfortunately I received a bad copy of this lens. It had severe back focus at the wide end 17-20mm on Sony A700 & A200. Returned it to Amazon who promptly refunded me. From 24mm onward the lens was great, if you can get a good copy through the range for Sony then your lucky. Sigma really need to sort out there Quality Control.

leider 2x unscharf

Gufaz "Oli", Amazon

  • Summary: Ich wollte das Sigma 17-70 als neues Immerdrauf für meine alte D70 haben. Dazu bestellte ich insges. 2x bei Amazon. Leider waren die Abbildungsregbnisse in beiden Fällen nicht zufriedenstellend. Scheinabr hat meine D70 Schwierigkeiten mit dem Autofokus, denn bei beiden Objektiven gelangen nur unreproduzierbar und nur selten scharfe Aufnahmen. Die Schärfe bei Offenblende und 17 mm war absolut ungenügend. Abblenden brachte allerdings nur wenig Verbesserung.

Fokus und Schräfe

Paul "Verbraucher", Amazon
1 May 2009
  • Summary: Schade eigentlich. Mein Expemplar hatte einen deutlichen Frontfokus und war zwische 35-45mm immer unscharf. Die Qualitätskontrolle bei Sigma scheint nicht so gut zu sein, wenn ich auch die anderen Rezensionen lese. Habe das Objektiv lieber zurückgegeben als mich auf die Odyssee mit dem Nachjustieren einzulassen.

Gute Lichtstärke - Aber total unscharf

R. Prangs, Amazon
12 December 2008
  • Summary: Habe das Objektiv für meine K100d super gekauft und wurde bitter entäuscht. Von der Schärfe her kommt es nich an das Kit Objektiv, welches für gerade mal 50€ bekommt nicht heran. Finde ich für ein Objektiv dieser Preisklasse inakzeptabel.

Schade!!!

Roman Gherman "Romanov", Amazon

  • Summary: Ich habe die ein Sterne Rezensionen sorgfältig durchgelesen und hoffte, dass ich mit dem Objektiv Glück haben werde. Leider war das nicht der Fall. Das Objektiv weiste geringe aber deutliche Unschärfe auf. Also habe ich mit meinem Bekannten Testbilder mit einem Stativ gemacht mit der gleichen Brennweite und gleichen Blendenöffnung. Das Kitobjektiv lieferte BESSERE schärfere Bilder, wie kann das sein???
