Sigma 24-60mm f2.8 EX DG Lens

24-60mm
Review Date: May 1, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $400.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Sharp (even wide open). Small, light. Good focal range. Build Quality. Cheap. Performed admirably even next to the 24-70L.
Cons:
No HSM. Not as good as the Nikon 17-55....but that's to be expected.

This is the lens I use most often. It can sometimes be a bit soft at 2.8, but it's not bad. When it's past f/4 it's super sharp. It's also cheap. I've had the lens for about a year now, and it's been dropped a few times and used more than my other lenses, and it's held up quite well. Definitely recommended.

Pros: Reasonably priced, Quick startup, respectable speed, very easy to use, two scroll wheels are nice, very sturdy.
Cons:
No settings below ISO 200, High noise above 800.

I got mine used, body only for $450, which is great. The kit lens is what makes this camera more than the 350D.

The camera is light, but very sturdy. I've dropped it a few times on pavement, and it didn't complain.

I wish the ISO range was better, and I wish ISO noise was not as noticeable.

Overall, it's a great camera, and I would recommend it.
