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

137_small
Review Date: Aug 1, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $369.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Versatility for a beginner, sharpness, wide angle, f2.8 @ 17mm, all around lens best bang for the buck for a 350d/400d IMHO
Cons:
None for the product itself - would have liked a f2.8 through the full range

I start taking pictures with this lense when i had never used a dslr before following some friend advices in june 2006. It has been an still is a delightful experience ( i own only this lense and a canon 50mm f1.8). I was not sensible to the L sickness and still are not. After one year and a lot of shots, I would simply buy it again. a bit of distortion @ 17mm corrected easily during post processing. The best bang for the buck. There is only one similar lens that I have tried that was better, it was the canon 24-70mm f 2.8L on a 5d, not the same league for sure.
