  • Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC Macro

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Nice balance - my example is sharp - excellent warranty
    Would hsve paid more for EX & f2.8 accross the zoom range

    I bought new in January with a D300 & companion Sigma 10-20 EX & Nikkor 70-300 VR. I am very happy - find no specific faults or concerns and recently did a pano shot for a 3 panel print on canvas at 20" X 72" - sharp & detailed (the D300 helped!!). I've been hesitant about Sigma, but bought anyway as much for feel & price. The results have proven Sigma can be a good choice.
