Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM "C"

Screen_Shot_2013-11-15_at_11_10_33_AM
Review Date: Feb 1, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Lovely walk around lens, cheap and sharp. OS works a treat. A people lens.
Cons:
Too much distortion for stitching landscape panoramas. I vastly prefer the 18-35 for stitching, constrained light, and moire sharpness.



 
Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO

Review Date: Dec 18, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $900.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Better than 70-200/2.8L II? Sharp and quick.
Cons:
Heavy?

Got this because 70-200mm f/2.8L II was often a little long for track,
XC and gymnastics with the 7D. I thought I would use both lenses.
Instead I stopped using and carrying the 70-200mm II, 85/1.8 and
135L. I don't mind the moire one bit.


 
Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM "A"

Review Date: Dec 18, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $900.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: sharp, fast, flare free even with sun in the frame
Cons:
slight distortion

Better than anything I've found in it's focal range.
Replaces a bunch of primes.
