Summary: Compact lens. Has unusual front element that is flat. When using a uv filter I experienced lots of flare but upon removing the filter the lens performed as expected.Was a multicoated filter but not the high end back side coated .
Summary: Bought this as a used lens. But have no problems with it other than auto-focus issues. It does not auto-focus easily. So I usually focus this lens manually. This is a great lens to use for kid photographs. Fast and wide enough to include kids up close without any visible distortions.
Summary: Just recently picked up the Sigma EX 24-60mm f/2.8 Lens for Canon used on eBay. Well, they don't sell it new any more new. I hear they sold off the stock for $200 before discontinuing it. I wish I knew about it then... Well, you can get one here or on eBay for below $300.
Summary: What an amazing lens! This was my first big lens purchase and honestly will be one of the few lenses that is constantly on my camera. I recommend renting the lens first through Camera Lens Rentals or another rental site that carries this lens as any lens purchase is going to be a large purchase.
Summary: The Sigma 24-60mm f/2.8 lens is quite simply one of the finest wide-to-normal zoom lenses available in the budget price range. This lens is now discontinued but you can still find it in on the used market in like new condition for $250 or less.
Summary: I was really excited about this lens for my K-5 and I really wanted to like it but it can't focus in live view at all on my K-5. It just jump all over the place. With live view off it focuses a bit off and the pics look underexposed and blurry.
Summary: Wish the lens had an internal focus motor...so it would work on the newer entry level SLR Nikons....which brings me to the point of why has Nikon not offered the screw drive motor in later camera bodies like my Nikon D80 I use for this lens.
Summary: I purchased this lens in 2006. First I was using for landscapes and it produced very nice images, even though it has some yellowish tone to them. Later when I started shooting portraits and still life images, I noticed that it had a front focus problem. I used with 20D, 50D, and 5DII.
Summary: I love this Sigma 24-60 lens. I shoot portraits & mostly use prime lenses, But this lens has not left my camera since i got it!. The fixed 2.8 really sealed the deal for me. great lens, great build, Does not feel cheap. Check it out.
