Review Date: Aug 29, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: 'Very' sharp and wonderfull lens! (Waw). TS of course! Construction is super.
Cons:
Some flair in backlight. Cheap and strange looking lenshood.

As sharp as my 135mm f2! (My favourith lens). Better than 70-200 L IS USM at 90mm! Great for table top. Gives photography another dimension. A lens I keep in my bag. Thinking about bying the 24 mm as wel.

Pros: Together with my 135mm F2 L USM and 300mm F2,8 L USM the best lens i have. Incredibly sharp! As scharp as some Leica lenses i have. A keeper. Much better on 35mm then my zoom 17-40mm F4 L USM! Great lens in low light! Use it on my 5D now:) Waw! If you have the money for it, well then buy it very soon.
Cons:
None.

Review Date: Dec 31, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very well build. Feels like a good lens and it actually is. I use it on Canon 5D. Needs to stop down untill at least f5,6 - f8! Better then my Canon 17-40mm f4 L USM at 17mm! Almost no distortion. AF is ok. Not like my Canon L lenses of course. But i never use AF with such wide angle lenses. With f8 you have a depth of field from 0,5m untill unending! For its price a super lens!
Cons:
Lens flare! Maybe because of lens hood? My Canon 16-35 f2,8 L USM had the same problem at 16mm. I sould it.

Pros: Nicely build, cheap and razer sharp between f5,6 & f16.
Cons:
Non.

The first lens from Sigma i ever bought! (Was a bit afraid actually). I am using Canon and Leica glass. Owned the Canon macro EF 100mm f2,8 USM. (I sold it because macro is not really my thing and i have lots off other Canon glass). I own Leica elmarit macro 60mm f2,8 wich i use on my Canon digital body's with adapter from Novoflex. (Not any more)! My Leica glass is not giving me better pictures then this Sigma. I really was suprised with the quality of this lightweight. Don't be afraid to buy it! Very nice lens!

Pros: Razer sharp! Build for life.
Cons:

Together with 135mm f2 'the' lens! Even with extender 2X. As good as some of my Leica lenses! And believe me... that means something! By the way, i always use monopod with this one. It is rather heavy, so 'IS' is not that important for me.
