Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM

 

The Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM lens is a solid replacement for the 18-55mm that shipped with your camera, but another Sigma zoom is our Editors' Choice.

Sharp. 4.1x zoom range. 1:2.9 macro magnification. Optical stabilization. Wide aperture. Compact and light. Available for multiple camera systems. Compatibility with Sigma USB dock and mount conversion service

Some distortion. Edge softness at 70mm

When you consider its price, it's hard to argue with the value that the excellent Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM ($499) delivers. Its aperture is wider than the run-of-the-mill 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens that ships with most entry-level D-SLRs,...

Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM

 

The Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM Lens is a standard zoom for APS-C digital cameras. The lens has a fast f/2.8 aperture through its zoom range, but isn't that sharp when shot wide open.

Fixed f/2.8 aperture. Useful zoom range. Includes hood. Optical image stabilization

Soft wide open

Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC AF Review Round-Up

 

The Sigma AF 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC is a very good standard zoom and a viable alternative to the Nikon offerings in this range. Generally it is capable to produce very sharp results although the corner performance leaves a bit to be desired at 17mm at...

Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM standard zoom lens

 

With a constant f/2.8 aperture, the professional-grade Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM makes a great upgrade to a standard zoom kit lens.

Constant aperture of f/2.8 ; Smooth zooming action ; Delivers excellent results

Manual focus ring is fiddly ; All-plastic outer construction ; Resolution tails off above f/11

Whether you’re buying your first DSLR and want to upgrade the standard zoom kit lens to something a bit more special, or a DSLR owner looking to build a lens collection, the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM is a good place to start . While its build...

Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM

 

Progettato per essere utilizzato nelle reflex digitali con sensore APS-C, questo zoom versatile corrisponde a un 26-105mm (equivalente). Si differenzia dai modelli tradizionali per la grande apertura del diaframma (f/2,8-4), lo stabilizzatore ottico e...
