| p.1 #9 · Third party lenses?how many use them? |
I've tried and/or used many different third party lenses. I currently have a Sigma 70-200 OS that easily betters the Canon v.1 and is "close enough" to the v.2. I also have a Rokinon 8mm fisheye, which is awesome, but manual focus. I'm looking forward to receiving a Sigma 24-70 that I recently acquired in exchange for a Sigma 10mm fish. At one time or another, I've also tried the Tamron 70-300 VC, Sigma 70-300 OS (though just because it came in a lot I picked up on ebay), Tamron 17-35 (nice alternative to the 17-40, a little slow focusing), Sigma 17-70 (ok), Tamron 70-200 (great optics, slowww focus), Tamron 180 (super), Sigma 150 (super), and Sigma 30 1.4 (nice, but not a focal length I loved on crop). All of them were pretty good bargains and no lemons... I love Canon's lenses, but don't feel any loyalty to them. The 3rd party lenses are often very fine, but occassionally sacrafice a bit here or there.
