flare control: 4
|ownership:||I used to own this lens|
|price paid:||EUR 685 (new)|
|positive:||- Very little Distortion|
- Good build materials
|negative:||- Cheap lens cap |
- Focus ring doesn't decouple when in AF
- Colours aint nice
|comment:||I bought this lens because I wanted something wider and with less distortion than the kit lens. The Sigma provides this in a nice package, rugged build and a fine image quality. Regarding the WA I think flare control is quite good and distortion control is impressive. |
However for €685 I expect to get something better than the cheap sigma lens cap that you can't grab in the centre. And the fact that the focus ring doesn't decouple also is a nuisance, it's close enough to the zoom ring to accidentally grip it when in AF.
Update: I sold this lens some time ago, I just didn't like the colour it produced. Also build quality wasn't up to the price. I've decided not to buy Sigma anymore.
