Sigma still can not get the focusing issue under control

  • Summary: all i am going to say is three things: 1) its built like a tank 2) it weighs as much as a tank. seriously. this is the heaviest short zoom lens i have ever seen. far far far too heavy to carry around as a walk around lens. and... yup you guessed it... 3) Sigma once again produces yet another lens that has the worst focusing issues i have ever seen. this is the last and final time i ever e v e r buy a sigma lens and i would urge anyone reading this to stop..

  • Summary: I had two of these little beauties and as much as I loved the design I was extremely disappointed with the focusing. Both of the lenses I had suffered with terrible back focusing. Tried on two pro Canon bodies with micro adjustments set to +20!!! ans still soft at 50-70mm, on wider setting 24 to around 40 focus was slightly sharper.
  • Pros: Compact size, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

  • Excerpt: Думаю мне просто не повезло. Объектив был куплен через интернет магазин, поэтому выбирать не пришлось. Повелся на это стекло в результате прочтения предыдущих отзывов. Получил довольно симпатичный девайс, приятный на ощупь, но удивительно тяжелый. После пробы выявил фронт-фокус, причем пытался компенсировать его ( на 5Д марк 2 есть такая возможность) не хватило шкалы. Попробовал фокусировать вручную - получил резкую, но мыльную картинку с очень неприятным боке.
  • Pros: Довольно компактен, приятен на ощупь.
  • Cons: Тяжелый, дорогие фильтры, мерзкое размытие, мыло, люфт.

  • Summary: Già non sono un particolare amante delle ottiche non Nikon ed ancora meno delle ottiche Sigma, proprio non riesco a trovare un feeling con queste lenti però visto che adoro fotografare ed è il mio lavoro e la mia passione, appena un mio amico ha una lente nuova che non ho mai usato non vedo l'ora di usarla per metterla e mettermi alla prova.
  • Pros: prezzo
  • Cons: foto impastate, poco luminoso
