Sigma stabilizes 17-70mm fast normal zoom: Digital Photography Review
I want it! The question is... how much?
Sigma - Lenses
EDIT: $449 from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Sigma-17-70mm...=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=photo&qid=1260421459&sr=1-5
They also have a new 50-200 f4-5.6 OS
Thanks, now I just need some sample images.
Jeeesh, you want everything!
Sigma really knows how to exploit a niche, don't they! They have a way of evaluating the major camera makers' lens lineups,and then producing something that the camera makers are not producing--like a 17-70mm f/2.8~f/4 variable maximum aperture zoom lens WITH STABILIZATION for $450.
That is how Sigma got to where it is today...that and making lower-priced versions of popular lenses that the camera makers also make, like the 70-200 f/2.8 Sigma EX.
17 to 70 plus 70-200...Sigma looks to be going for a two-lens knockout punch!
LOL, I kinda want this lens, screw my 18-70!
As long as they don't fall apart! :meh:
Well, it's not an "EX" glass lens, so I'm leary of it. All of my Sigma lenses are EX and built very well, but I don't know ...
It would have to have EX stamped on it for me to even consider it. Good range though.
Does anyone know when it is going to be released?
