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

24_70EX_med_1_
Review Date: Jan 3, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Optical quality (sharpness & color rendering), Build quality, fast focus, overall feel.
Cons:
2 step AF/MF switching, pretty noisy, zoom ring a bit small & weird feeling, creeps.

I got this because at the time canon's 24-70 2.8 L was out of my price range. I'm now VERY happy with this lens, and after spending a week with the "L" thingie i'm even happier Smile
yes, sigma's version has no USM/FTM equivalent, but it's got as good optics (IMHO), focuses a bit faster (this particular area interests me alot, so i did as extensive tests as i could) and feels a bit better in my hand too (subjective, i know). Well worth the money, try if out in your local photo store and see for yourselves!
