Great Bang for the Buck Lens!
3 March 2011
Summary: This is another sleeper lens. Typically inexpensive for its aperture and focal length. Sharpness is excellent as is the contrast, although it does very much benefit from a curves adjustment and a little local contrast enhancement in post. It is a decent lens for weddings and the like.
Summary: I use a mixture of Canon, Canon L, Sigma, Leitz lenses for my everyday work at my studio. This lens makes a great general purpose lens on Canon digitals (both Full and APS-C sensor) It is big (F2.8 speed) with a 77mm front, but it balances well. Zooming and focus is smooth. The lens is VERY sharp.
Summary: Very practical zoom range for everyday use. Picture Quality: Very good picture quality in every aspect. Auto Focus: I must say the auto focus is amazingly quick. Of course, at poor contrast objects it might keep hunting nervously but not within long distance.
Sigma 24-135mm f/2.8-4.5 Aspherical IF review by Nikola_Konsulov

Summary: I've seen many reviews on this lens both for and against it. I needed/wanted a lens with its range for my Konica-Minolta Maxxum 5D. It was either get the Minolta 24-105 f3.5-4.5 or this one. I choose this one and I'm glad I did. It rivals the Minolta lens well equaling it if not bettering it.
Pros: Wide-angle to telephoto range, rather sharp, fast auto-focus, bright: f2.8-4.5, good color
Summary: This lense has been their for me since day one. I think it is really good in low light situations where the 2.8 comes in handy. The shot is clear and sharp. The autofocus isnt as fast as a L series Canon lense but for the price you cannot complain.
Summary: Positives: Nice wide angle for cameras with 1.6 crop factor like the Digital Rebel, 20D, and 30D. Works well with landscape photos. Good range for a walk around lens. This lens has survived my hiking abuse. Negatives: Lens extends when zooming, as opposed to lenses where the zoom is internal.
Summary: I purchased this for a Canon 30D because I shoot low light situations. I have had success with Sigma lenses before so I thought this would be a good lense to have. It is extremely slow to react and to auto focus and my low light photos actually did not come out any better than with previous lenses.
