Pros: Price, focal range, possibility of mounting screw filters, value for money, distortion contained (visible only to minor focal lengths), overall optical quality in the center, weight.

Cons: Flare, economical/plasticous coating that does not give the impression to last over the centuries and be sensitive to any bumps, noisy autofocus, sharp drop at the edges, vignette at 17mm

Opinion: Premise: My version is not DG and HSM. I use it on Nikon d610. Suffers the flare in sunny conditions in the room without a doubt, to TA the quality is discrete in the center, improves hand by diaphragming, but eye not to go much further to F22 because after suffers from softness due to diffraction (tested to F45 type... photos unwatchable) , at the edges I'm sorry to say but it's obscene (to TA) shutting down a little improves, but not too much. The colors I see them quite cold and definite (the opposite of shepherds but I do not come the term). The AF works fine (uncertainties case never due to the body), but we say that makes noise, then I do not notice maybe someone yes, in any case has never given problems. Good resistance posed by the zoom ring which is also very homogeneous along the whole stroke. It still has the aperture ring, so you can very well use it on the analogue rooms. Rated 9. Really practical because of the focal range that allow you to use it for both landscape and Street.

Pros: price, quality construction

Cons: focus engine

Opinion: I bought this lens a few days at an extraordinary price (65 euros) because the autofocus was not working, the first impressions are decidedly positive given the alarming criticisms from many parties read about its excessive softness, I find at the contrary that is well contrasted, the beautiful and natural colors and focus given the short excursion of the dial excellent even in manual

Pros: Price optical yield strength

Cons: Autofocus sometimes capricious ....

Opinion: I bought this lens at a price I could not refuse (€ 150 !!!), made a few test shots to test if I had taken a rip-off or not, I realized that I got a great deal, more than affordable price I found in his hands a view to bad either. Absurd to compare it to the Nikon equivalent but even more absurd to pay certain figures for original optics if you are not professional. Made some shots with a friend to understand the differences between his Nikon 16-35 f4 and my paltry Sigma I find that this "glass" will enforce without problems, the FLARE occurs in certain conditions but also the Nik no joke, distortion minimal and negligible, good contrast and very life-like colors, no problem of over / under exposure autofocus sometimes uneven but this is the only weakness I found in comparison to the original, the highlight is the price ..... definitely I recommend it also because it is in used at attractive prices, much less than the 1,000 € of the Nik.rnP.S. tengo to point out that my sample has the small button for the AF / MF switch .... do not know what number it is but it works 100%

Pros: Crisp, light, good overall performance, construction, little AC

Cons: suffers from the flare, but the version DG much less vignetting at RT, but noticeable distortion corrected, filter diameter 82mm

Opinion: I purchased this objective (non-DG) because I needed a nice wide cheap prezzo.rnIl sigma has been proposed as the best among the options of buying a relatively cheap price for a good resa.rnA TA 2.8 is a little soft in the center but not a lot, but does not lose the edge vignetting is consistente.rnchiudendo to f8 sharpness is very good, the af is annoying but not bad; I also do not appreciate how many of the joint lining to Sigma, rnl'esemplare in my possession has no flaws in the headlights, so that as the only defect has the far right corner with a considerable drop in sharpness, but it is a very small angle the frame.rnA f16 starts to drop sharpness, f22 to lose tantissimo.rnNon use this light above the 24mm so I can not say, but the distortion is corrected and the vignetting is reduced considerevolmente.rncon the use of filters is a difficult use, but with a 100mm system filter holder with adapter rings WA everything is resolved without any sort of trouble as vignetting or otherwise.

Pros: Price, AF, FF format, costruzione.rn

Cons: Do you suffer from flare, coating Sigma

Opinion: I bought it as a "wide-angle" for APS-H as an alternative to 17/40. I consider it a bell'obbiettivo when you consider that it costs about half of the Canon and how quality and features is very, very similar (after a test between the two). In my opinion for quality / price ratio I see no other better optics for the FF.rnSe '"activities" were not the main landscapes (where spending more is better) I highly recommend it as a generic wide angle on APS-H or FF.
