***Revised*** Defective! Don't buy!

  • Summary: Purchased this lens with no real problems... the IS is starting to give me a little trouble. I get a wobbly focus sometimes when I hit the shutter release. I've had this problem with every Sigma lens that I have ever owned.... Good thing these lenses come with a 3 year warranty! *** Revised*** The above statement is what I left two months ago after receiving the lens in the mail. I've now changed my opinion!

Couldn't focus accurately, even after sent in for re-calibration.

  • Summary: I bought this lens hoping the bad reviews were wrong. I really wanted this to be the heart of my photo business, and that the differences between it and the Canon version were negligible - I could not have been more wrong. I tested it immediately when I first received it, and although it seemed slightly off at times, I felt it was well within what could be corrected for in AF-micro adjustments.

Absolutely abysmal lens.

  • Summary: My first suggestion is save your money for a Canon L glass. Do not waste yourtime nor money on the Sigma. I gave it a try and it failed horribly. I took the lens on an test shoot and tested all aperture settings/shutter speed combinations. On all of my photos there was a severe front focus issue. (if you could find a spot in the photo that wasn't so soft it was considered out of focus. The bokeh was like jagged broken glass. at anything below f8 the lens was useless.

Poor quality control

  • Summary: I hope this lens will be good, but my first copy I ordered from Amazon had an unbelievable front-focus problem. Honestly, in all lenses I ever tested I have never seen it to this extreme. It exceeds the DOF at f2.8 thus your focus point isn't even remotely in focus. Again, I am sure (hope) that this is a good lens, but quality control especially at this price point should be better.

Cheaper is def not better

  • Summary: Well, purchased this lens as a backup, thought it may be nice to try Sigma instead of Nikon. What a mistake I made. Pretty much out of focus on the whole range in low light and a little on the loud side as well. The focus and crispness of the images were fantastic out side, in sunny weather and that is great if the sun is always out but we live in England and it is mainly overcast.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Rugged
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Slow Focus

Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 IF EX DG HSM - Nikon

The Cornish Photographer, WEX
6 February 2011
  • Summary: I know that the Quality Assurance at Sigma is questionable but this lens was extremely poor even by their standards. I have previously owned Sigma's 100-300mm f4 and their 150mm f2.8 lenses which were very good and I could not fault them at all, but this 24-70mm HSM was appalling! I gave it a good test through the whole aperture range but it was only at f5.6 that the images became fairly acceptable. The flare and ghosting at f2.8 was shocking.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Quick Focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Flare Ghosting

Schlechtes erwicht?

  • Summary: hab mir dieses Sigma für meine 5D mark II gekauft. der Autofokus lag immer total daneben das was scharf werden sollte war nie scharf. Der Frontfokus war nicht mal mehr mit der Kamera auszugleichen so musste es wieder zurückgeschickt werden. Vieleicht war es ja die Serienstreuung, von den man so oft liest.

  • Excerpt: долгое время мечтала поменять кита на никоне 3100. Днями и ночами штрудировала форуме о фототехнике, осознала, что в мой бюджет и в мое представление о качестве вмещается сигма 24-70. Купила на свою голову. Протестировав несколько минут обектив в магазине, я осталась довольна качеством - бэк и фронт фокуса не наблюдалось, резкий на открытой дырке. Покупала в другом городе. По приезду домой, вышла с сыном вечером погулять, заодно взяла с собой объектив.
  • Pros: не нашла
  • Cons: бэк и фронт фокус, мыльность, вес

  • Excerpt: я от SIGMA AF 24-70 mm f/2.8 IF EX DG HSM для CANON не в восторге проявил себя плохо много фоток просто запорол , у знакомого аналогичный случай, вывод делайте сами похоже это не совпадение
  • Pros: не увидел
  • Cons: SIGMA AF 24-70 mm f/2.8 IF EX DG HSM для CANON после покупки через месяц нуждается в юстировке, стал промахиваться, и размазывать фото, настройки камры не дали ни каких результатов!!!

  • Excerpt: Много говорить не хочу. В объектив я влюбился, прекрасный результат выдавал на кропе EOS 500D (востребованные мною ФР 35-100). Цвета и резкость, рисунок, все на очень высоком уровне. Сравнивать с аналогом от сапога не хочется, так как разница по качеству картинки ничтожно мала по сравнению с разницей в цене - от полутра десятков тысяч рублей.Однако все бы было хорошо, если б через месяц-полтора умеренного использования, очень бережно и аккуратно, стекло стало...
  • Pros: Конструктив, рисунок, вес, постоянное значение f на всех ФР, универсальные диапазон ФР, HSM, комплектность, резкий
  • Cons: Слабое крепление бленды, размер фильтра 82mm, проблемы с качеством
