Sigma 15-30mm f3.5-4.5 EX Aspherical DG DF

15_30f35_45_1_
Review Date: Oct 16, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Well made. A joy.
Cons:
People tend to underestimate how good it is.

The Sigma 15-30 is a fine lens and it is so much more fun than the EF-S17-55. I'm happy to own both of course but really I often take the Canon because it's reported to be such a crack lens. When in reality the

Sigma takes much more interesting photos.

Street shots or Moonlight landscapes, portraits... can all be straight or playfully distorted with the Sigma when required or if you just need to frame everything you can.

The Canon has the quickness but it's 2 weak points are it only goes down to 17mm and night shots with moon ghost terribly.
