Excerpt: I bought this lens to shoot basketball, I know it's a little pricy as I'm just a mom that wants good shots of my daughter. Anyway, I have only used It for 2 or 3 games but I absolutely love it. The pictures are so much better than the kit lens, hands down.
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.
Excerpt: This lens is what I was waiting for a long time ago. Looking for different solutions including the Pentax 16-50mm F2.8 my choice fall on the Sigma and I can't tell you enough how happy I am with this lens. Very sharp, with portrait and close-up. Bokeh very soft and beautiful.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: Having received the Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 this morning (after examining both the Sigma 24-70 and Tamron 28-75 at B&H), these are my two-cents: [Choice] I chose the Sigma over the Tamron, as IMO, HSM focuses quicker on my Pentax K-5II Body.
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.
Excerpt: Of course the "gold standard" for a lens in the 24-70mm range is the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 Series II but for some of us it's price is prohibitive.The Sigma 24mm-70mm f/2.8 EX Aspherical IF EX DG HSM Lens for Canon is a viable choice as are the samples from Tamron and Tokina.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Performance, Price, Value
