Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC

18-50f28
Review Date: Aug 17, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Value for money, f/2.8, EX buid, close up ability (would not call it macro)
Cons:
No HSM.

Note i've got the new Macro version. This is my standard lens. Realy like the f/2.8 apeture. This is the lens that's on my camera most of the time.

The addition of HSM would make it even better, it's fast enough focussing and it makes a resonable amount of noise.

As with my other f/2.8 lens it a bit soft wide open, gets better stopped down a bit. Can't wait to use it for my holiday in France.


 
Sigma 50-150mm F2.8 EX DC HSM APO

Pros: f/2.8, size, weight, hsm, price, fmt.
Cons:
No tripod collar, soft wide open, minimum focussing distance.

For a long time I was in the market for a 70-200mm f/2.8 HSM etc etc. But then the 50-150mm f/2.8 came along. Picked it up second hand from a guy who wanted a 70-200mm.

Together with my 18-50mm f/2.8 it makes a nice alround combo. It's fast enough for motor sports, got a lot of keepers with this lens at the French Grand Prix, and the ones I didn't keep where due to lack op experience.

Definetly a keeper!
