Sigma 17-35mm f2.8-4 EX Aspherical

17_35f2_8_4EX_1_
Review Date: Aug 30, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: good price well built and on my D300 it pin sharp. not sure what problems others are having? yes the contrast does need at tweak but I would expect that at 17mm for a sub 1000 lens!
Cons:
it not f2,8 through out apart from that a great lens on the right body


Great lens for the price only shame is its not f2.8 through out it zoom range.

I used it on my Kodak DCS Pros(Full Frame) and on D300 and D2X (In cropped mode) and all are perfect at A4 print size.

Contrast does need a boost but at this price I would expect so.

I have several Sigma EX lens and none of them have disappointed, if you are comparing them to a top end Nikon or Canon L series at triple the price then yes you may be disappointed.

17mm - 35mm f8 excellent 17mm f2.8 very good 35mm f4 very good.

I would have been happy paying 250 for it.
