Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM

Review Date: Dec 29, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $669.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Well built, sharp, price and warranty
Cons:
no ftm.

I have owned the 17-40L and the 16-35L, this lens is far superior to both. It is easily as sharp as both L lenses and the focus is fast, quiet and dead on. I recently shot a gathering around a campfire and the lens focused without any issues. When others have viewed the images the first comment is "great colors".

I have not been happy with prior Sigma purchases and really agonized over this purchase. I must say that they have made a believer out of me.
