Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 EX Aspherical DG DF

Review Date: Aug 31, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: Excellent value for the money Built Solid
Cons:
Lacks Sharpness Unable to capture close ups

I purchased this lens for my Canon 10D and really wanted it to work for me as an all around lens. However it just wasn't consistent. Way too many photos slightly out of focus. I replaced it with the Canon 24 70 L, Outstanding Lens. Focusing problem isn't an issue. However I must admit I did capture a lot of shots that were outstanding with the EX.

Pros: Sharp, Fast Focusing
Cons:
Heavy

This lens will definitely due more then I can accomplish with it. First purchased the Sigma 24-70EX for my 10D. Too many slightly out of focus shots. Unable to shot Close Up photos. With the "L" Photos are Outstanding, even in Auto mode which one should be able to use at times. "L" series is the way to go if you own a Canon... I do plan on using this lense for over ten years and I'm sure it will outlast the camera.
Highly Recommended
