Pros: Brightness , color balance , Bokeh

Cons: Heavy with no OS, not real macro like Sigma 17-70mm f 2.8-4, bit soft at 2.8,

Opinion: This one was the first constant aperture lens I have purchased. I have sticked with Sigma ever since and I am satisfied. At start this lens seemed to me a bit soft at 2.8 and perhaps it is ( don't have it any more to compare with more lenses) It was my main lens for about a year till it fell down while on camera and broke Though for sure it was softer at 2.8 than my Nikkor 1.4G. When stopped down produced excellent image quality with great color discrimination with minimal aberrations. Best shot from f4.5-9. It was heavy though and at low light conditions that did not help to have a steady shot. I would recommend the lighter Sigma 24-70mm and if you need good macro the new ( 2013) contemporary series Sigma 17-70mm. Heaviness was also a factor that this lens broke as it didn't sit quite balanced when resting the camera and at a small fall 50mm height) totally broke from base. ( my mistake but tooo heavy). Still have it in storage and thinking of repairing it

Pros: Rugged, well built, versatile, sharp, even very much between F4 and F10, bright, good bokeh, decent performance "macro" shooting from 40-50 cm away

Cons: Marked softness to f2.8, no stabilization, AF a bit slow (not a big deal, anyway)

Opinion: Had for a couple of years (bought used and at last resold), I often paired it to my quasi-ubiquitous 28-300 VR, which is much more versatile but I starts from 28 when, in certain situations, I crave that greater wide that you can not always simulate "taking a few steps Back "(Interestingly, however, I am satisfied with the 28-300 on DX, which starts from well 42 mm equivalent). Sharp (and also very much between F4 and F10), bright, effective, there were only merits until some photos, taken towards 70 mm with little light, was not implacably plagued by the blur if you do not remember to shoot at least 1/100 and then with the need for high ISO , and fortunately that the D700 that I had at the time held them very well (the absence of stabilizer, to which the 28-300 you get used to it too much, it was felt!). The real troubles were beginning in the evening, or indoors without flash, when f2.8 revealed a marked softness, a noticeable collapse compared to the rest of the openings. Woe to take pictures freehand at 70 mm to f2.8 at 1/60 or around them, 50 shots and over on 100, between shake and softness, were to be trashing rabidly. The (very) soft focus at 2.8 was much less a problem in portraiture, but I do a portrait on average every 1000 photos... The autofocus is relatively slow, but it was not a problem for my type of shots, and anyway it seemed to me always quite accurate, most importantly. Rating: Altogether 8.

Pros: Weight, ruggedness, sharpness, bokeh, colour rendition, excellent value for money

Cons: Little Fluid Zoom Ring

Opinion: Quote as written by Prodeettorre: «As a whole it defends itself very well, faithfully returning colors and sharpness. Let's not forget the quality/price ratio and nevertheless the quality/weight ratio. ' The chromatic rendering in my opinion is placed on a level of authentic excellence: neutral, without dominance. The contrast is balanced and the shadows are readable. The bokeh is pleasant, although in certain situations (diaphragming and with points of light) can be a little "nervous": Overall the image returned by this sigma is realistic, ie arouses the memory of the scene as well as it is exactly lived, and this is in Ultimately the prerogative of the best objectives. At 70 2.8 The lens is particularly suitable for portraits: at the same aperture it does not disfigure at all with my 85 Nikkor lenses. For those who love portraits is undoubtedly a perspective that gives satisfaction, but is defended with decorum in every circumstance, even indoor. In the landscapes, by diaphragm, remarkable results can be obtained, as in the rest testify the images present at the bottom of the page, sometimes indistinguishable from those obtained from far more noble optics. The AF is not a thunderbolt but the practical act has never bothered me. Sturdy object without being heavy: 700 grams for a full frame zoom with fixed aperture at 2.8 There are not many, also considering the weight of the individual fixed optics that it replaces (24, 28, 35, 50, 70). It is the classic honest and no frills lens that makes bringing home the result (a good result) in every situation. Over time I switched to using mostly fixed optics, but when I need flexibility combined with brightness I still use this Sigma with pleasure, and I never felt the need to change it to chase fads. I look good from selling it, because it is worth far more than the handful of euros that ricaverei. In Conclusion: The Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro, while being dated and lacking features that today seem indispensable (stabilization, tropicalization, etc.), achieves in my opinion a good balance between practicality of use, cost and optical quality, and It is a good choice for those who look after the substance.

Pros: Price and weight.

Cons: Maybe a little soft at all opening.

Opinion: I used this lens on a Nikon D750 and I can only give it a more positive opinion. To look for the hair in the egg I might say that it seemed to me a little soft at all opening, but overall it defends very well, faithfully returning colors and sharpness. Do not forget the value for money and nevertheless the quality / weight ratio. Even close-range photography may also be considered acceptable, although this is certainly not the predominant use to which the target is targeted, even if labeled Macro.

Pros: Clarity and definition to high openings must be content to 2.8 (but it is a bell'accontentarsi). Not even looks good in comparison with optical Canon L series resistance Flare.

Cons: AF a little slow if subject movement, as a handyman does not excel in everything

Opinion: Purchased used to race when I noticed that I could not use the Sigma 18/200 3.5 / 5.6 per220 € I think that I could not wait any longer '... Optics solid, bright and well suited to landscapes, portraits with a discreet zoom range. is the classic lens which is held ever mounted for travel and any evenienza.rnNon could expect more 'for what I pagato.rn
