    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!

    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.
