Pros: Fast and accurate AF, usable focal range, sharp at 24 mm (fully comparable wqith primes), effective VR
Cons: Brutal vignetting wide open (not so easy to remove), less sharp within 80-105mm focal range
Opinion: Not a bad value for money, but brutal vignetting wide open and f4 is limiting factors. At the end of the day, it is better to use a prime lenses :) Fast and accurate AF, usable focal range, sharp at 24 mm (fully comparable wqith primes), effective VR, less sharp within 80-105mm focal range. Otherwise, bokeh is quite pleasing, although not much pronounced due to the f4.
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Solidity and build quality, sharpness in the center, quality of materials
Cons:Weight, not all specimens are the same, brittle lampshed
Opinion:Beautiful lens with the right focal range that covers all needs a bit. Good image quality with decent flare resistance and sharpness. Be careful when buying it: trying a couple of them I noticed that not everyone has the same sharpness and some tend to spread the edges. The materials are beautiful and quality and feel (especially from the weight), the lampshed instead is ridiculous and risks splitting even on the stock exchange.
Pros:Sharpness, focus accuracy, price, construction
Cons:Weight (not in fact a problem), vignetting (completely correctable in the car with a special function, or in post)
Opinion:I would like to say that I am a fan, not a professional. Lens that I have been buying new for two months, at an excellent price of 620. I needed a quality all-rounder zoom, to be combined with the D700, just purchased used, as before FF, after 4 years of the excellent D7100. I calibrated it with the usb-dock sigma (taken used online at 30e). Spectacular lens, very sharp, very good stabilizer (better than the sigma 17-50 2.8 for aps-c that I had before on the D7100). Very precise focus, even with little light. Price quality in my opinion excellent. It costs less than sigma 24-70, and having that little more zoom I need so I don't have to crop the D700's 12 megapixels. It will be the best machine body, it will be the best goal, the qualitative leap is seen. Very satisfied!
Cons:Maybe a little bit of weight, but in the end you get used to it
Opinion:A fantastic goal, great sharpness and engraving; the colors are great! Once the focus is adjusted with the appropriate dock-usb tool, the lens becomes a blade for the very precise with which it resumes the details. It has become my main lens that I can not detach from the D750, in fact it is very versatile. A lens that I recommend for those like me looking for a quality lens to carry with them as the only travel lens but not only, in fact even in the portraits I was amazed at the quality of the blurry.
Opinion:It's a real "everything do" and it does everything right. Five basic focal points in a single lens (24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 105mm) allow you to do virtually any photograph. Ideal to take on the go, it allows you to face any photo release without any particular regrets. The sharpness is remarkable for a zoom. It has a very good contrast. Never had a chromatic aberration problem. The autofocus engine is fast and precise (my model showed no front/back focus problems, a problem that unfortunately afflicts many Sigma). No distortion on the entire focal excursion. Constant F4 opening. Against all odds, it has a very nice F4 blur that is able to return excellent portraits. Only neo: vignette a lot at 24mm, but the problem is easily solved in post production. Strange.
