| p.1 #7 · Anyone used a Sigma 24-70 2.8 ? |
#1 I'm a Nikon shooter, and #2 I was in a camera store so take this with a grain of salt... but,
I just obtained the Sigma 24-70 HSM in a lens trade. I haven't received it yet, so I went to the camera store to check it out. The salesman told me that even though the Sigma 24-70 HSM is a full frame lens, "it wouldn't do full frame." But the new Tamron 24-70 is all the rage and of course it WOULD do full frame. The reason given was that the Sigma 24-70 wasn't sharp on a full frame camera. Considering the new Tamron was $1300 and the Sigma was more like $850, it took me the entire ride home to figure out that he was just trying to make a sale.
