Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC MACRO

137_small
Review Date: Aug 10, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $369.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: AF is fast. Overal IQ is excellent
Cons:
The hood which came with my lens, has a 'brushed' cloth feel to it. It will mark both quickly and badly I suspect.

I have to admit, this lens has taken me by surprise. At $369 (Arlington, Texas), I did not expect a lens of this quality.
Just about everything that can be said about this lens has been said, so I would simply confirm this is an excellent walk-about lens with very little feeling of weight, and overall superb for the price.

The colours are warm, and the images very sharp. I have yet to explore the macro facility.

The hood worries me a little if I ever wanted to resell.
