Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM

583_17-50mm_f28_EX_DC_OS_HSM_copy
Review Date: Feb 21, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $375.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: small and relatively light. OS works well. HSM is quick, just shy of Canon's USM, and on par with Tamrons USD. Well built and great price
Cons:
No FTM.

I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger on this lens. I knew I wanted a fast standard lens but the price of the Canon 17-55 was WAY out of reach. I have had the lens for about a week and taken several hundred images. I can allay your fears, this lens is sharp, even wide open. The focus is fast and the OS on par with Sigma's 4 stop claim and I am getting 3.5 very consistently. The build quality is excellent, this thing just feels nice in my hands. I wish Sigma could have added FTM, but that is really my only gripe. Highly recommended!
