Day and Night Performer

Jose A., B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is my first Sigma product which I paired up with a D5300. I have owned this lens for approximately three weeks and I have tested its performance in both daylight and at night. Out-of-focus areas have a soft satin appearance. I found that though at its widest the aperture is f2.8, it appears that f4 is the sweet spot throughout the focal range. At night it struggled a couple of times to focus, but once it "got the hang of it" it did not miss-fire again.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

  • Summary: Excellent, sharp, clear and did everything I was hoping for in low light. I used it with my Sony A77ii to take some interior pictures of the Mission San Xavier del Bac. I was more than pleased.

Great companion for the Nikon d7100!

  • Summary: Excellent all around lens. Small in size and light weight with a nice wide to zoom range. All that with a f2.8-4.0 makes one of the fastest standard zoom lens out there.

A Great Upgrade

Karen C Photography, B&H Photo
19 October 2014
  • Excerpt: A very happy match for my new Canon 60D body. I shot most of my last wedding with this lens. I spent a lot of time shopping on line. Ideally one might want a Canon lens, but third party lenses are a great way to go if you cant foot the price tag of a Canon Lens. I love this lens, its wide enough for venue shots, fast enough for great quality images in low light and works well for portraits. High quality lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Awesome Upgrade

Karen C Photography, B&H Photo
19 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I did a lot of research before choosing this lens and I'm so happy with my decision. Very versatile, fast and sharp. You can do beautiful venue shots with available light, it has macro capability and works well for portraits. Love it. If you are not able to foot the cost of a canon lens, this is a great option. A great match for my Canon 60D.

Excellent upgrade from kit lens

Chris H., B&H Photo
28 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I recently purchased this lens as an upgrade from my 18-55mm kit lens, and there is an immediate noticeable bump in photo quality. I originally bought the older version of this lens, but have since bought the newer "Contemporary" version, which is noticeably smaller, lighter, and with better overall performance. This lens is ridiculously sharp, decently fast at f2.8 at the wide end, and covers a good distance at 70mm.
  • Pros: Affordable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Sharp, Strong Construction, Versatile

Sharpest lens I own. Better than the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 by far!

Bradly Bennison, Amazon
16 September 2014
  • Summary: Wow! Just wow! This is the sharpest lens I own. Before buying this I bought the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 and was not impressed with it at all! The 17-50 was supposed to be quiet and fast focusing with HSM but it was slow and loud. This new C lens has definitely had an upgrade to the HSM motor cause its a lot faster and quieter (although not as quiet and fast as a Canon STM lens). I loved this lens from the beginning! It looks stunning and performs stunning.
