Wonderful Travel Lens

  • Excerpt: I was looking for something to give me a little wider view than my previous 28-75mm f/2.8 for an upcoming trip. The Sigma 17-70mm fills this requirement nicely along with f/2.8-4 capabilities. The Optical Stabilization is a bonus that I didn't have on my previous lens.

great lens for its price

  • Excerpt: It is okay sharp, but when you using cameras that have very high resolution like 24mp, it is not sharp when zooming in100%.(center is really sharp, other than center, not really) focus is quit quiet and precise. focal range is quite versatile.

  • Excerpt: looks very nice and well balanced with my K5IIs, does very nice pics. i didn't want the very best bulky lens but i wanted better quality than a kit lens. The Sigma is exactly what i hoped it be. for the price it's a no brainer.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 Contemporary lens

SNayak, Amazon

  • Summary: Paired this lens with my Nikon D5300 on a trip throughout Greece and got some fantastic shots, both daytime & nighttime due to the image stabilization. This was the only lens I took on the trip, and the 17-70mm focal lengths allowed me to take all the shots I wanted.

the colors are excellent and the soft bokeh is great

  • Summary: I have two of these lenses and both copies work very well. They are a touch soft at their widest apertures, but that is quickly sharpened up with just a bit of stopping down. I run one of these lenses on a D5100 and the other on a D7100.

I really love it.

  • Summary: I bought both this Sigma and the comparable Pentax and couldn't really pick up any difference between the two. I didn't keep either though because I already owned the Sigma 18-250mm which was not outdone by the 17-70mm. I then broke the Sigma 18-250 beyond repair.

Good Suggested

  • Excerpt: I asked the salesman for his suggestion as to a Go To Lens. He suggested the Sigma. He was not wrong. Takes great shots, light weight and the 2.8 and 72mm lens makes it a great buy

Good improvement over similar Canon lens

Marko, B&H Photo
19 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I matched this lens with my Canon 60D. I have been using this lens for the past couple months for landscape and wildlife photos in S. W. Colorado. So far, I really like the color that I get in my photos. The only problem, which is slight, is the focus at 70mm. Some photos are just not clear.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Rugged
  • Cons: Blurry Focus
