Review Date: Apr 11, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 2 

 
Pros: Build, unique range
Cons:
Soft, doesn't work with EOS 20D.

Had two examples of this lens, neither worked with my Eos 20d. So soft that even the crappy little kit lens blew them into the weeds when I tested them on newsprint - unusably so. After reading the reviews on here I was shocked, but the guys I bought it from said they were aware with issues with lots of sigma lenses on the 20d - I sent back a 24-70 which was just as soft. Nice build quality but if it isn't going to work with THE most popular prosumer digital camera out there - what's the point? And why market it as being compatible?

Putting my money in L glass from now on. Liked the sigma's solid feel, but wouldn't trust one as far as I could throw it after my recent experience.
