Sigma 17-35 mm f2.8-4.0 EX DG HSM

sigma1735
Review Date: Jan 14, 2008 Recommend? no | Price paid: $250.00 | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: Nice Case, looks good, achieves "focus" quickly
Cons:
No significant image quality, VERY soft images

I bought this lens based on a friend's recommendation and the reviews on Amazon. Didn't see these reviews till after I ordered it. Worked with the lens on my new 40D in many different light situations: early AM, mid day, and evening outdoors. Almost hourly indoors, including the "tripod Dollar Bill test. All I can say is I found the IQ to be marginal. WAY worse than one would expect from a lens from Sigma's EX series.
I would not recommend this lens to anyone.
