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: 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
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.
Excerpt: What can you say? At less than half the price of the Canon 24-70 f2.8L, the Sigma lens is a no-brainer for those on a budget. The lens is very well built and the HSM delivers good response. Sharpness is not quite Canon L quality, but it is acceptable in most instances.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
