Pros:price, maximum opening at f 2.8, vignette, stabilization, maximum closing at f 32, af
Opinion:I've been with this lens for half a year now. mounted on a Nikon D5300. taken used at about 250 euros and I have to say that for what I paid them all worth them. Opening the diaphragm to 2.8 throughout the focal point allows you to have a blurry one that is not bad and closing up to 32 allows you to increase the time when using a tripod or sheet taking photos with very long times. I must say that even with regard to the vignette when you have the diaphragm completely open I was amazed because it is almost absent if not absent, which happens with few goals (especially at this price range). the stabilization is exceptional, you can make videos even while walking along the mountain paths and the result are videos that are moved but not very much, on the other hand when you have to make videos to a person who speaks or make videos in the middle of a forest and make the peace of it stand out it is better to remove the stabilization because it is really so noisy. autofocus has pros and cons, that is, it's a good autofocus, fast but some photos, especially in some scenarios (such as mountains away from us) can't focus them and even this is an autofocus that overall a little bit of noise does. this lens also has many small subtleties that it is to take into account but are small subtleties that not a click on lightroom are resolved completely. in conclusion in my opinion is a good lens to buy when you want to change the optics kit or when you need a lens all in all light and capable of having a wide opening of the diaphragm for the entire focal length.
Cons:Slow AF engine, noisy stabilizer, short-focused dial race.
Opinion:I've had it for three years and it was the winner between sigma (f/B focus problems) and Canon (I didn't want a vacuum cleaner), despite being of the original religion on originals. It's sharp at all focal points from f4, a little less to f2.8, especially at 50 mm. I don't think it's a big deal, f2.8 to 50 mm I usually use it for a portrait. The stabilizer works very well, even if it is noisy. However, it is necessary to give it time to get into operation (a fraction of a second), at the risk of micromox. The most important thing is that it does not suffer from f/b focus; in fact, the AF is very reliable. It has no problems with filters of any kind, a testament to the consistency of the AF. Built well, it even has the lock to block the stretching of the barrel. Negatives: Slow AF and the focus ring is very short. For manual focus (e.g. on tripod) it could be a problem. Unfortunately for the price at which it is sold you can not complain. Very recommended, I do not agree with many reviews that are read online about it; personally I printed with excellent detail photos in A2 with 18 megapixels and the aforementioned lens. I hypothesize that much spents are blamed on the lens faults that instead are of photographer or camera.
Opinion:I have been the owner of this lens for about 5 years, and I used it with pleasure on 600d, 700d and 80d, I particularly appreciated the opening to f/2.8 on the whole focal excursion and sharpness. Excellent stabilization that allows you to shoot with relatively long time. The weaknesses are represented by the MAF system very noisy and often, especially in inadequate light conditions, slow to the point of losing maybe a few shots. overall a good economic lens to replace the lenses provided in the kits
Pros:Fixed aperture on the entire focal range. Good image quality.
Cons:A little heavy.
Opinion:I've been with this lens for a few years. I bought it shortly after its release following the advice of a French magazine. Although I already had two transtandards, I was tickled by the possibility of using a 17 mm. That became, on my APS-C, a 28 mm. I never regretted my purchase; Of course it's a little less practical and heavier than the 24-85 I use more often. But, in my opinion, it is very valid, also having the stabilizer.
Cons:Over-exposed photos, abnormal falling lines at 17 mm
Opinion:I bought this lens, paying it a lot, influenced by favorable reviews .. I must say that you do not repatriate it! Returns unsurpassed landscapes of landscapes in full sunlight with excellent definition of wealth of detail All the photos, however, have a slight overexposure, very often corrected in post-production, but what led me to sell it is the accentuated distortion of the falling lines above all emphasize in the photograph of buildings: is it incredible the amount of oblique walls that I photographed ??? Among other things, it does not have a physical button for the stabilizer and the parsluce, standard, tends over time to be ascribed to the external
