    Exactly what I expected for the $$$ (and a little more), August 7, 2009
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I’m currently using a Nikon D90 but the D700 is on the horizon for me. This meant that I am not buying any DX lenses anymore. I have the Tokina 11-16, Nikkor 70-300 VR, Nikkor 50mm 1.8 and the D90 kit lens 18-105 VR (never been happy with the kit lens). So the only focal range I needed was basically 17-70 and the DX Nikkor 17-55 is out. The logical approach was the Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 but ugh… I’m not making $$$ from my shots yet and $1999 was a bit much to swallow. I rented the Nikkor and the Sigma to compare side by side and I really loved the Sigma’s compact but solid presence compared to the relatively big and long Nikkor (chalk up one point for the Sigma)… I took about 150 shots with both lenses and I really could not find too many differences… Certainly none that stood out. I’ll admit that I’m a bit of a pixel peeper and I was truly looking for the lesser priced lens to come up short but honestly only some very minor flare issues (shooting directly into the late evening sun) even showed up. On my crop framed D90 the sharpness was superb on both lenses, color, contrast and focusing accuracy and speed was exactly what I expected. VERY VERY good. One thing that added to the cost of the Sigma though (chalk up a point for Nikkor) is the 82mm filter size. They are not easy to find and are almost always more expensive (high quality Digital UV filter was $100). I now have my FX frame lens lineup set and I’m very happy with it as I purchased this lens right here at Amazon. Now… to save for that D700… *sigh*

    Moral of the story is… if you want to save $800 and have a lens that you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference from the venerable Nikkor… get this Sigma 24-70 2.8 HSM.

    *UPDATE*
    As mentioned in the comments on this original post, if you are going full frame with this lens it is indeed a bit “mushy” from f/2.8 to f/4.0 in terms of acuity. On my D90 I just didn’t seem to notice as much more than likely due to the smaller sensor and denser smaller pixels. On the D3s you can really see the limitations of this lens at wide apertures. I would also imagine if you are using a D7000 (purely speculation here) that you might start seeing some of the limitations on that crop sensor too due to its higher resolution. I will be selling my old faithful friend (this is not a bad lens) for the more expensive Nikkor now that I’m full frame. NEW moral of the story… if you are using a D300 or D90 or below this lens is wonderful. If you are using a higher MP sensor or full frame you will see the limitations at wide apertures.

    MIXED FEELINGS ABOUT THIS LENS, August 25, 2010

    I had read more positive than negative reviews about this lens, so I ordered it to do wedding photography. The lens quality is very good except when it comes to the lens hood; it’s very thin and bends easily. Overall, the lens barrel is sturdy and compact. In terms of focusing, the lens focuses fast & right on target.

    Some people say this lens is soft at F/2.8, but that’s exactly the effect you want to create with your aperture wide open. The lens is sharp where you focus at F/2.8, and creates a nice soft focus around you focus point. All the images I took, were of excellent quality & sharpness.

    The only major issue I had with the lens was not in terms of quality, or image sharpness. My issue was that the lens barrel was very, very stiff when zooming in & out. I had to apply some force to push it all the way in both directions (in and out). Unfortunately, that’s a problem with Sigma lenses, and it seems they’re not fixing it. This is a major issue because during wedding photo shoots, it would really slow me down some good 2-4 seconds trying to zoom the lens to get a shot, but also lose my scene.

    I returned the lens & got me the Canon L lens (which has a zoom smooth as butter). However, if you won’t be doing fast-paced photography, this lens is perfect for you, both in terms of price, quality and construction.
