Our take on the Sigma Photo 17-70mm f/2.8-4.0 Macro Lens

by Woody Sherman
Sigma Photo

Your favorite "kit zoom," with more options

Your APS-C DSLR might have come with a 3X zoom lens. In a great many cases, this is what we call a "kit zoom" lens, and it does a great job of delivering a lot of versatility while not adding a lot of overall cost to your camera purchase.

The thing that might not be immediately obvious is that they often trade light sensitivity, particularly as they're zoomed in, for those cost savings. So what if you had the great versatility of a kit zoom's focal length with a bit more reach, matched with a light-gathering f/2.8 aperture when zoomed out wide? Add in the ability to shoot small objects at very close distances and you'd have this pinnacle of versatility, the Sigma Photo Contemporary Series 17-70mm zoom lens. Optical stabilization and HSM autofocus technology ensure that more of your pictures will be crisp and clear, even if the shooting conditions are tricky.

Designed to give you everything from a panorama of a sun-dappled river winding through Big Sky country, to tight shot of a desert lizard sunning itself on a nearby rock, this lens is ready for most day-to-day opportunities, whether they're in daylight or low light.

Highlights:

  • 17-70mm f/2.8-4.0 DC Macro OS HSM | C standard zoom lens
  • compatible with Canon EOS SLR APS-C sensor cameras
    • effective focal length of 27.2-112mm on Canon APS-C cameras

  • two FLD glass elements (performance equal to fluorite) combine with one special low-dispersion element for sharp, clear color and contrast across the frame
  • HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) for fast, silent focusing
  • minimum aperture: f/22
  • minimum focus distance: 8.6 inches
  • constructed of 16 elements in 14 groups

Love it

Written By Corelli, NJ on Saturday, November 30, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought it for my travels where I need good everyday lens to shoot mostly landscapes and architecture. This lens satisfies my needs pretty well. It's fast, has fast and accurate AF, and produces excellent pictures. IS works fine allowing to shoot in lower light. It's also well made, zoom is smooth. And it's less expensive than comparable Nikon or Canon lenses, depending what camera you use it for.
Pros:
Fast, sharp, fast and accurate AF, IS

great alternative walk around lens

Written By DB Family Photography, Kalamazoo on Friday, June 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great alternative to the Nikon kit lenses. 1/2 stop faster, very sharp even wide open, extra few mm on both end, and vibration reduction, a clear winner. oh, and it is MUCH cheaper than equivalent Nikons. Sigma really stepped up the quality in their lenses lineup recently with their new Art and Contemporary lines. A good "scientific" review here:http://slrgear.com/reviews/showproduct.php/product/1560/cat/31
Pros:
Light, sharp, good range, 1/2 step faster, cheap... what more do you need?
Cons:
weather sealing? for that price you can't ask too much. We'll see how well it last with time. Also specific known bug with the D7100 on the picture review: you can't scroll through the pic at 100% easily. Not a big deal to me.
