12 November 2009
  • Conclusion: On our FX test camera, the lens did not really show impressive performance, however on DX the results are a lot more solid and convincing. Center and border sharpness is generally very good, but there's a visible drop in sharpness wide open and the extreme corners need smaller apertures to show good...

  • Conclusion: On paper, the Sigma 24-70/2.8 EX DG HSM is a very attractive lens. With its excellent build quality it feels like a pro tool and its huge diameter and front lens gives reason to hope for superior optical performance.

  • Conclusion: Based on its sheer specs the Sigma 24-70/2.8 EX DG HSM is a very attractive lens. It promises professional grade results at a more attractive price point.

  • Conclusion: Sigma is known for launching lenses with good quality/price ratios. In most cases they are only slightly worse than the brand-name competitors (if at all) but they are significantly cheaper. The new Sigma 24-70 mm f/2.8 fits this strategy requirements very well.
  • Cons: too low picture quality in the full frame corner near the maximum relative aperture,, visible distortion at wide apertures, especially on the full frame,, significant vignetting toward the focal length ends,, quite visible coma in the full frame corners for the range of 24-45 mm.

  • Pros: dobra jakość obrazu w szerokim zakresie czułości,, małe rozmiary,, solidna obudowa,, klasyczny wygląd,, bogate, czytelne i funkcjonalne menu,, ergonomia przycisków na dobrym poziomie,, skuteczny system czyszczenia matrycy,, wbudowana lampa błyskowa (choć o stosunkowo niskiej mocy),, regulowany cz...
  • Cons: stosunkowo wysokie szumy na najwyższych czułościach,, brak wbudowanego wizjera,, stosunkowo niska moc lampy błyskowej,, wyraźne odbicia w wyświetlaczu podczas pracy w ostrym świetle,, ingerencja w RAW-y na poziomie prądu ciemnego,, wybór funkcji przycisków programowalnych mógłby być lepiej przemy...
