  • Sigma 17-35mm f/2.8-4 EX DG Aspherical HSM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Inexpensive, Good Quality Build
    Not Constant Aperture

    I purchased this lens in September 2007 in a Nikon lens mount version from Amazon. I've used the lens extensively with APS-C cameras (Nikon D90 and D7000) and it performs admirably!

    DxOMark recently tested the lens and compared it with a much more expensive Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 II USM lens (which costs $1,549.00 at Amazon). The Sigma lens performed very well in the comparison and held its own.

    Here's the review and comparison:

    The Sigma is a quality lens, made in Japan which won the European Photo & Imaging TIPA Award as the "Best Consumer Lens" in 2004. It's an older but very worthy lens for an FX or DX cameras.
