Sigma 28mm f1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro

28_f1_8_1_
Review Date: Jun 27, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: Good build quality. Sharp when focused. f1.8
Cons:
Autofocus is not working precisely with Canon digital bodies.

This lens is nice and sharp when focused. The build quality feels very good, however it consistently front-focuses with my Canon 20D.

I've talked to Sigma and been told that only lenses with serial number atarting with 2 or more can be upgraded to work with Canon digital bodies. Too bad I wasn't told when I bought it...


 
Sigma Electronic Flash EF 500 DG Super

Review Date: Jun 27, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 3 

 
Pros: Cheap. Same functionality as the Canon-flashes for half the price.
Cons:
Poor construction. Not robust.

I've had two of these flashes. Both broke after less than a year. I'll stick to Canon from now on, even if it's almost twice the price.
