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...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
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.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Using this lens for portrait photography has been great. The focus can get a little soft when fully open at 2.8 and focal length 70mm, but it is just how you use it. I find it often gives just enough softness to enhance the look of my portrait photography. Not too harsh on the skin.
Pros: Great value, Lightweight, Strong Construction
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
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.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
