| p.1 #2 · Sigma 70-300 APO or Canon 50-250 IS II |
I have a Canon 350D, and currently the Sigma 70-300 APO DG, but I mainly use old manual focus lenses, and if I do use the sigma it is likely in manual mode as the AF is just too slow and unreliable.
My question is if the Canon 50-250 IS II would perform any better in AF terms? and the overall quality of the lens, is it worth struggling through with the Sigma or would the Canon be the better choice? My budget for a lens would be the price I could sell my Sigma for (The canon can be got for £106 on ebay new, which in itself is a bit of a worry)
Just wondered if anyone has compared these lenses together, or any experiences with the Canon lens on the 350D
Thank you for your time!
i've never used either but i recall seeing complaints about the sigma 70-300 and some praise for the canon 50-250 can't really say much in detail, i think the 50-250 af is probably still slow but maybe better than the sigma af, tamron 70-300 vc is likely fastest focusing of the bunch (canon 70-300L has full on precise and very fast AF but it's very $$$$$)
