Need to learn more to take advantage of this lens

  • Excerpt: I have used the lens for high school bowling and high school competitive cheer. Having some trouble with depth of field at the 24mm end and focus at 70mm. Not sure if it's the lens or it's a matter of me getting acclimated to the lens. My ideal would be 24-100mm f/2.8.

lens shoots very soft

  • Excerpt: The lens feels and looks good however the lens shoots very soft at 2.8. The images are not usable. If I use my canon 70-200 2.8 it is sharp as a tack so its not the camera.

  • Excerpt: For my Nikon D800, I was looking for a full frame portrait and travel lens. I think for this price, this is the best I can get. It is heavy but worth it. POtraits are amazing. Sure I oculd make more sense having a Nikkor which is almost double the price, but this one providing a great picture...

Excellent Lens

  • Excerpt: I loved this lens but returned it because I wanted something sharper. I read reviews about the Tamron 24-70mm on DXOMark and decided that I wanted to pay the extra $400 for the sharper one plus I also wanted the image stabiliztion. This Sigma 24-70mm is a fantastic lens; well built, smooth and fast.

You get what you pay for.

  • Excerpt: This is the first (and last) Sigma lens that I have bought. Thought I would take a chance with Sigma instead of purchasing a Canon L lens to save a few hundred bucks, and deeply regret it. Really wanted to love this lens as it was my first upgraded lens from my kit lens.

  • Excerpt: This lens rocks, now I was a little nervous about getting this lens because it seems quite a few turn out to be a little "blurry" however I got lucky and found this to be a very versatile lens both in the studio and on the street.

A terrific lens from Sigma

  • Excerpt: Out testing the lens in an unfinished factory full of all kinds of subjects to shoot. Great for close ups and long view. Not much going for wide angle. But that's not what I bought it for. If you can take only 1 lens this is my choice as a multi-purpose tool.

A versatile lens at a great value

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a versatile lens that I could use when walking the streets of NYC along with shooting portraiture. This lens is significantly cheaper than the Nikon - AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED Autofocus Lens to the tune of roughly $ less after the $ rebate.

Don't waste your money.

  • Excerpt: Bought this lens to use for both video and photo and I can't find one good thing about it. I returned it almost immediately it was that bad. It had major front focus issues and even with using my cameras AF Micro Adjustments I found the focus to be softer than I even thought was possible.
