All purpose lens

  • Summary: This is a wonderful all purpose lens. The quality is fantastic for the price. It's great for daily shooting, but the zoom isn't enough to handle anything more than a casual shot. I'd recommend this as a starter lens for anyone who is knew to the Canon SLR.

Excellent for shooting video on DSLRs

James Burkart, Amazon
1 September 2011
  • Summary: I am a professional filmmaker and the majority of the video I shoot is with Canon 5D mkII DSLRs. I first purchased this lens used on craigslist. After using it a couple months I dropped it from 6 feet to concrete. It didn't survive, nor should anyone expect it to!!!

SIgma 28-70mm

Ramious, Amazon
14 January 2011
  • Summary: I ran the 28-70 2.8 through the paces and it's off to SIGMA for calabration after one day. I read many reports of focus issues from 2.8 through about 4.5. I rolled the dice and lost. The autofocus missed on 99% of the shots running up to about f 4.5.

Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG review by theflyingmoose

  • Summary: As a replacement for a kit lens (even one that was as reasonable as Pentax's 18-55), this lens seems worthy of my investment. While I'm used to really sharp images through my elderly 50mm prime, changing from regular use of a kit lens (it being convenient and auto-focus) was an eye opening...
  • Pros: good value, decent optical performance, seems sturdy
  • Cons: odd plastic, bit soft at f/2.8

  • Pros: price, quality, speed
  • Cons: no canon logo?
