18-50
Review Date: Jun 27, 2005 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 1 

 
Pros: It is a lens. Low cost. Good for a camera you would take into a burning building or mud wrestling ring
Cons:
Pictures are bad to very bad. Money could have been saved or put to a good lens instead of tossed into the fire.

I was sent this lens with my Canon 20d by mistake so I figured I'd give it a try before I sent it back. I'm not going to get into the bull about contrast and soft on the edges. It's enough to say that you would not want this lens on your 20d becaue it takes bad pictures. Why would anyone spend $1300 on a camera and put this on it when you could save your money and get a real lens for betwenn 5 to 7 times more is beyond me. You could get a nice used fixed lens for this price. If you want a low cost junk wide angle zoom get the canon lens it has 13 elements and it's less money. The people at sigma must be smoking the rope to think up somthing like this.
