Pros: build, image quality, price, stabilized
Cons:
a bit heavy

For shooting video this is my go to lens. I use it for probably 80% of the stuff that I shoot. The Tamron equivalent is also optically nice but the build quality doesn't feel nearly as sturdy/smooth as the Sigma and as I'm shooting video on Canon bodies the fact that the Tamron is backwards is a big con for me. The Canon is a nice lens too, but considering that the Sigma is so much cheaper there's no reason to go with the Canon over the Sig for me. The Sig is sharp, has good color, and is relatively affordable. Thumbs up.
