  • Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC Macro

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    nice range, 17mm f2.8, contrast, Macro capabilities 1:2.3
    Need a cobra flash, from 2.8 to 4.5, lenght at 70mm, soft at 17mm 2.8

    This lens is good, i only regret the sliding f2.8 to f4.5, but it should be a killer if it was constant f2.8.
    Even if it's a little soft at 17mm f2.8, on stop more and it's ok. The 17-50 tamron and 18-50 sigma 2.8 are great but their range are not so fun, i m waiting for something like a ef(-s) 16-60 f2.8 or f4 canon
