Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro review by dugong5pm

Summary: for the price.. it really does worth your money. IQ is nice.. not as good as Canon's or Nikon's 24-70 but it's really ok considering the 1/3 price. Mechanics & build quality are also nice. It feels solid in your hand. AF is somewhat quite fast & silent, that's a good thing. Now the bad thing are.. it's big & heavy.. so big that it won't take your usual 77mm filter. Front glass is quite heavy, the lens creeps down when facing downward. For me, the worst of all is.
Pros: usable (wide open), smooth bokeh, fast AF, cheap!
Summary: Good cheap replacement for the canon lens. the zoom kept locking up at first but the more i used it, the better it got. since i dont have the money to but the $1,500 canon lens, this works great for me. If used correctly, this lens provides great color and contrast. Im using it with a canon 5d and i have been really happy with the results.
Too expensive for the quality!!! read this before u buy

Summary: I should have spent the extra money and bought the Canon 24-70 f2.8. The lens is not consistant on sharpness, also with front focusing and I throw away many shots because of it. I sent my 60D body and lens to a Sigma repair shop, their tech said they didn't find anything wrong with it. Do I have to send it to another shop, what do I do? It cost me 75.00 for the round trip which I could have applied towards the Canon.
