Nice going Sigma. Now we need a 500mm 5.6 with IS and a 21mm TS lens.

I want to like this lens, but I think it's too big for me. I'm trying to transition to shooting smaller lenses. I just find that when I'm shooting people, I generally enjoy using a smaller lens.

I currently shoot a 7D too, and my go to lens is the 17-55mm ... But boy, that lens is huge!


It's not so bad. I have a Sigma 35mm f/1.4 which is great for portraits, and this one is less than 150g heavier. Given the capabilities (if you are using an APS-C) it seems like it would be a very versatile optic.

Anyone use this lens on their EOS-M? I would love to see a picture of that

It works great on my wife's 100D (SL1). Has been used on that more than my 7D since purchased.

I just got mine today, and initial results are pretty spectacular. Razor Sharp from f1.8 throughout the zoom range.

Ill post some kitty images soon

A few test images...

3.






4.






5.






The AF seems very accurate but at first I thought the lens was busted. The Dof at f1.8 & 35mm is pretty shallow so any movement would make the images look soft.

Anyone have an idea of how long you would expect to wait if you ordered this lens right now? I have never bought a lens right when it was released. For example, B&H just says they are accepting orders and will ship them out in the order they receive purchases.

I am curious primarily because I plan to sell a lens to fund this purchase. I would like to line those up as best as possible.

I know certain APS-C lenses can be use for limited use on full frame. For instance, the Tokina 11-16mm can be used on FF at 15 & 16mm. Does anyone know if a limited focal length can be used on FF with the Sigma?

B&H now has specific expected dates on their website.

Looks very promising for APS-C users, but I can't help but wonder, how do you fill in the gap between it and a telephoto zoom?
Would a typical setup require a 24-70 also?
For instance I have the Canon 17-55 which I transition to a 70-200 and I don't worry about the small gap.

Just curious how others will approach this.

50/1.4 and call it done? Or, use Sigma's 50-150/2.8 OS?

If I bought this for a crop camera as I am wont to do, I'd probably just supplement it with primes or my 24-105L, unless I grab a faster standard zoom. This lens, and Canon's 18-135 STM (in a 70D or 7D kit) would be enticing as a second body setup; I'd have to decide whether I'd want my UWA on the crop or on the FF camera, though. 10-22 or 17-40? Filters are a must .

Don't forget that the 24-70 f2.8 loses 3 stops of light due to glass. Whereas the sigma loses only 1.8 stops. So Sigma allows 2 1/2 stops of light more than the canon.






Just a note so readers aren't confused: Some of the discussion above throws around a bunch of numbers, which are inaccurate.


f1.8 is one and a quarter stops less than f2.8.

The full f-stops for this discussion are-

f1.4
f2
f2.8


f1.8 represents 1/4 stop less than f2 - therefore the difference between f1.8 and f2.8 is one and a quarter stops. in terms of intensity of light that is 125% more light, not 250% more light.
