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

Review Date: Aug 6, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $400.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Sharpness, Price, Build
Hunts in low light

Picked this up to fill the given range and it was a tossup between this and the 24-70. Im quite impressed with my decision, its sharpness is fantastic and it performs better than id expect for a lens of its price.

Some samples:


Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

Review Date: Jul 28, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Build Quality, Sharpness, Bokeh, Weight, AF
Not much

Bought this to replace my Sigma 70-300 and it was like taking off glasses that were not made for me, clear, sharp, awesome. Owned this for 5 months now and its been great, mainly used for motor sport photography but wildlife has been shot and the results have been great.

Selling this shortly for a Sigma 100-300 f/4 EX but only because i was finding the lack of versatility was an issue with my motor sport shooting, otherwise i would hold onto this for sure.

I really do recommend this lens.

Here is a sample motor racing shots and a shot of a Kookaburra.
