Pros: Value for money, only paid Euro250 direct from the Australian Sigma importer with 24 months warranty. Silent AF on my copy, Fairly quick AF. Light weight with optical stabilization makes it easy to handle. Handy zoom range. Constant F2.8. Build quality good for the money.
Cons: Nothing for me.
Opinion: Great bang for you buck lens. Formerly owned the Sigma 18-35mm Art and I'd say this is almost as sharp but easier to handle due to the light weight and optical stabilization. Selling this lens as I am also selling my APS-C camera. I can only hope to find a similar quality and great value FX lens like this. Will be missed. From my copy I can thoroughly recommend this lens.
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:brightness, constant opening, value for money, stabilization, sharpness
Cons:if I have to find it, the lampshade is not up to the goal: the plastic is of poor quality and as a result the lampshade is not robust; the attack on the lens is precarious
Opinion:I bought this lens a few months ago to replace the kit lens (an 18-55 mm DCIII, so not stabilized) of my EOS 1200D and so far I am very satisfied. As soon as I saw it in the store, the difference from the kit lens immediately emerged: the Sigma is bigger and heavier than the "plastic" and is more robust in the construction. It is sold, in addition to its bag (discreetly padded), with the lampshade, which for Canon is an optional (expensive). The Sigma 17-50mm is a standard lens for aps-c that can be used for various photographic genres, since it starts from 17mm wide angle to finish at the length of 50mm useful for portraiture. Its value is undoubtedly the constant opening of 2.8 to all the focal points, which brings in so much light thanks to the wide diameter, gives pleasant bokehs and generally allows you to detach more of the background than the lens in kit; the optics are stabilized, which allows to recover about 3 stops (the 4 declared by Sigma seem a bit too much). My model gives warm and bright colors, as I like. I preferred it to the Canon 17-55mm because of its more affordable cost (the Sigma costs about a third of the Canon) and I recommend it to those who, like me, want to make an upgrade of the optics in kit.
Opinion:they are a couple of sticks that I have this lens.... beautiful lens, grip to use on 70D, I find it as fast as Auto Focus even in cases of poor light, fast even to refocus on fast approaching subjects, besides found at a great price here on the market. For the use I make another planet than the 18-55 canon. Opinion as a true amateur on the beat nor!
Pros:Body solidity, Zoom block (to prevent the lens from sharpening when "resting"), so much sharpness
Cons:Colors of the yield a little cold, Aesthetically not nice, Noisy autofocus
Opinion:A lens with, undoubtedly, many merits. Its constant openness, all over the focal length, the compactness, the solidity of the body, the masculinity of the whole lens make the lens in question greatly appreciate. The price, in line with the unsteady Tamron counterpart, is a nice pro to keep in mind when thinking of a standard zoom optics. The sharpness of the lens is remarkable, especially by closing the diaphragm a bit, but even at 17mm it makes very well with that slight wide-angle touch. The barrel distortion is contained, although it sins for a certain cold and slightly washed-out tone of tones (for me I love the rendium of Tokina 11-16, where the dominant hots fade), but easily corrected in post production. Nice lens for generic and street outings, cute for a bit of "macro" (close up), where the sharpness emerges immediately. A blade in the landscapes. Also great with slab filters, not having front that rotates. Great value for money, from nice satisfactions.
Pros:Brightness,construction,sharpness towards 50 mm,performance price
Cons:Autofocus with some problems with little light
Opinion:It's a few months that I use it, I'm really satisfied with the quality of the images it produces, the price is really good compared to even the nikon not even stabilized, the color yield I like, the sharpness good especially on the 50 mm even at ta, a little less sharp at 17 but acceptable. The brightness 2.8 to all focals is one of the highlights. One thing I noticed is that it focuses closer than the stated one and allows you to make nice macros given the 50 mm sharpness, despite not being a specific lens. I recommend the purchase also saw the good price also on the new.
