  • Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp at most apertures, cheap!!!, buttery bokeh, warm colour rendition
    Heavy, Need to try samples to get a sharp copy

    Sharp lens thats very much cheaper than the equivilent Canon or Nikon version(I'm using the Canon mount one). Colour rendition is slightly warm but I see that as a plus. Most shooters might use this focal length for people photography and I find that slight warmth can be advantageous (easily corrected in PS if you don't like that). Bokeh is nice and smooth. Solidly built but the price is weight and that huge 82mm filter size that makes polarizers a real pain to purchase.
