Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 EX Aspherical DG DF

24_70EX_med_1_
Review Date: Oct 25, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Price, coverage on 1.6x crop is ok, built quality, f2.8
Cons:
Soft wide open, slow auto focus, weird manual clutch

You should save more and get the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L
instead of spending 300-400$ on this one.

For a starter lens, it's good.
But for more serious work, or pro work, it's just no good enough. I had mine for 2 years now, and after heavy use, the lens is giving up, and the auto focus is hunting.

But then again, if you dont have 1000$ to get the L version, you'll be satisfied for a while with this one.
