Reviews and Problems with Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC MACRO
Showing 1-10 of 14

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. Lens' autofocus gets lost a LOT and when it does get lost it has a very hard time coming back from it.
Summary: Pictures were sharp and bokeh was decent but my shots lacked contrast and saturation. They just looked a little washed out. At first, I thought I just had exposure setting issues or that my D90 photos simply had a different look to it.
Summary: I just wanted to point out that the f2.8 is not constant on this lens. You can only shoot at f2.8 at 70mm, as soon as you pull back , that aperature will change. If you want a constant f2.8 over the full range this is not the lens for you.
It seems that fast and cheap wide zoom is still a pipe dream

Summary: I was excited about this lens when I saw all these reviews that seemed to suggest that it was the holy grail of walkaround lenses: fast, has a super-broad zoom range and is under $500. But when I got it, I was immediately underwhelmed.
Too many bad copies of this lens being produced...

Summary: I got a bad copy. I read a ton of reviews online about this lens and knew that it was a crap shoot as to whether you'll get a good copy or a bad one, but the more you look it appears that there are quite a few bad examples being produced; so many, in fact, that it makes buying this lens a real...
Excerpt: This is a fantastic walk-about and general purpose lens for cropped sensor Digital SLRs -certainly for value for money, it's unbeatable. It does not feel cheap, the build quality is good, it feels sturdy and it comes with a zoom lock, which prevents the zoom sliding out when walking about.
Pros: Superb value for money, great image quality, good construction, high maximum aperture
Summary: Ich hatte dieses Objektiv für meine Canon 40D bestellt und war etwas enttäuscht von der mittelmäßigen Schärfe! Ich habe mir dann das Tamron 17-50/2.8 bestellt, welches zwar nach oben nur 50mm hat, aber rattenscharf ist und mlt Blende 2.8 auch lichtstärker!
Summary: Das Sigma 17-70 erschien mir doch sehr interessant, da das Kit Objektiv eindeutig etwas zu wenig im Telebereich zu bieten hat und auch etwas Lichtschwach ist. Also mal sehen, was es bei der Konkurenz gibt, da die Pentax Linse doch etwas meine finanziellen Möglichkeiten sprengt.
Summary: Ich habe das Objektiv als lichtstarkes "immerdrauf" gekauft und bin im großen und ganzen zufrieden damit. Allerdings ist es für die D40 nur eingeschränkt gut, da durch das Objektiv das AF-Hilfslicht teilweise verdeckt wird, was natürlich bei nicht so guten Lichtverhältnissen ein Nachteil ist.
