Sigma 20-40mm f2.8 EX Aspherical DG DF

20_40F28_1_
Review Date: Feb 8, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: It is an excellent zoom to reccomend people. I bought it new on ebay, the seller was Cameta Camera N.Y., USA, with 3 years warranty.
Cons:
No one.

I red all the comments written by other people in this web site and it is very strange what someone says about his negative experience he had with this lens. I noted that they do not write any think about the price they paid for and if the lens they bought has been a new or an used sample. To date I am shooting with my Nikon F100 about 10 rolls of slides Velvia 100 and the results are very, very excellent. I took pictures in every light and weather conditions (interiors and exteriors), at long and at short end, at all apertures, with or without flash obtaining always the same excellent photos! I have no barrel distorsion also becuse the short focal give me the opportunity of rotating the body camera and by this way I can reduce at all some residual distorsion. About the weight, it is in the normal range for this kind of zoom and the large diameter of the frontal lens is necessary for its high lightness.
I of course reccomend this lens all Nikon users not only for the price, but over all for the high quality level. I am waiting some additional review by other people or by people that had negative experience with this excellent Sigma 20-40 lens.
