Pros: Good focal range, build, Speed, Close focus

Cons: Little soft at f2.8, Manual Focussing

Opinion: Apparently, the new replacement for this lens is much better and would be the obvious choice. I liked this older lens, when I had it, which naturally married up with my 70-300mm nicely. However, for landscape and general use, I find Nikkor 16-85mm VR, which I replaced it with more versatile and better image quality and for low-light live music the little Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 has the necessary quality at f2.8 that this Sigma didn't, especially at the edges. So, for me and my needs, the 17-70mm too much of a compromise. For many though, it would be ideal, well weighted, well built and with HSM and stabilisation. Main gripe was the rotating lens barrel which startled during AF. Conclusion - one of Sigma's winners, useful and cost effective package though if buying new, the replacement would be the one to go for. Overall score 8/10

Pros: Versatile

Cons: not perfect color rendering; not very sharp at lengths over 50 mm

Opinion: Low cost, very versatile for travel photography. I use it as an excellent all-rounder yield at 17 mm. At the longer lengths it loses its sharpness; if I can allow it from 40-50 mm I stop using it, preferring a fixed lens (type 50mm) because in portraits it does not make much. color rendering not always beautiful, especially with little light. My lens has an insensitid autofocus, it often focuss behind the subject.

Pros: Versatile luminous and stabilized

Cons: heavy, it rotates by itself if too inclined.

Opinion: I use it for about 7 years, especially for ceremonies. very bright and with stabilization it is used in practically every condition. is not very clear at the maximum aperture and is f2.8 only up to 20 mm (about) good for portraits the blurred is very soft. sticker a bit 'too much but nothing exasperated. The only drawback is that after a few years holding it vertically after a while 'tends to close (the zoom returns to 17 mm). But I do not use it almost never in this condition (if not freehand). account is very robust, perhaps a bit 'pesantino. Anyway, for what it costs is good value for money.

Pros: Money, bright, sharp, ultrasonic motor.

Cons: There is no manual focusing even in autofocus.

Opinion: Costa the right engine hsm fast and precise autofocus faster and canon 17-85, missing the focus in autofocus mode, but given the price details are fairly bright with a 2.8 interest, which can be locked so it does not stretch while walking, excellent stabilizer up to three stops working well and feels good finish recommended. Never had problems with the front or back focus. Interesting possibility to do macro, focuses on up to a few cm from the vetro.rnOttimo purchase!

Pros: Great value for money, bright and sharp, excellent resistance to flare, vignetting nothing on aps-c.

Cons: Lack of focus Full Time.

Opinion: This lens is truly a jewel of Sigma, accurate and fast on focus, clear and bright, the most out of this lens is ottine at F6.3 / F8. Also great stabilizer. It has a small focal defect in the ring, sometimes it's a little soft if you fold down the camera tends to vary the focal length, I think depends on the weight of the lens which has a diameter of 72, however, nothing that compromises the performance and 'use. How to put its point against only the lack of focus on Full Time. It should be the antagonist of the canon 17-85, but in my opinion is much higher. rnHo heard that some specimens may have small problems of back-focus, you are not on my verificato.rnUno of my best Purchasing, super recommended.
