Not as expected

Cole, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I was disappointed with the first photo I took with this lens. Also with each one after. They were all dark. I returned it as I felt it was defective. The staff was very helpful with this process.

OWNERS OF SONY A65 AND A77, PLEASE READ!

Pro Photographer "Ben", Amazon
13 March 2015
  • Summary: OWNERS OF SONY A65 AND A77, PLEASE READ! The AF on this lens will NOT work with the a65 or a77 unless a firmware update is performed by Sigma.

O.K. lens when used horizontally

H. H. Huisman, Amazon
18 September 2012
  • Summary: Bought this lens as a replacement/upgrade for my Nikon 18-55 kit lens. Autofocus and speed are indeed better. The quality of the pictures are about the same. I guess I could sort of live with that. What I find unworkable though is the 'barrel creep' of this lens.

Disappointed in this lens

Jane Palmer, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this lens to take on vacations, and as a general walk around for my Canon T1i. I wanted to be able to take landscape shots, have a little reach on the tele end, and the macro was a bonus.

  • Summary: Bought this lens from amazon warehouse and was excited when it arrived. However putting it on my Nikon D200 this excitement soon changed to annoyance as I quickly realised something wasn't right.

Bad autofocus, poor image quality

Mark K. Cowan, Amazon
19 November 2012
  • Summary: On a D5100: The autofocus is inaccurate (about 3 inches off each time) and fails in average indoor light. When manually focused at f/4, the results are sharp at the short end. I had the Sigma 150-500mm, and decided to order this (17-70mm) and the 70-300mm as Christmas presents.

Very disappointed with Sigma 17-70

Mr. A. J. Brown, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: I have already sent a review which you have seen fit not to publish, so I'll try again, more briefly. The Sigma 17-70 is simply not worth even half the price and is out performed in all respects by my cheap Canon 18-55 kit lens. Antony Brown.

Not a good choice for Canon EOS 40D

Jules, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: I'm sure this is a great lens, but the auto-focus system does not get on well with a Canon EOS 40D - specifically the lens spends a lot of time "hunting" for focus. I upgraded from the original non-OS non-HSM version of the lens, but now I've gone back to that lens.

  • Summary: I bought the lens in order to replace the canon 17-85 IS. I use for a very short period, because I experienced a front-focus problem. I sent to an authorized service and the calibrated on my canon 40D.
