Ok it's a cheap lens.You get what you pay for.


Built quality is very bad.


A lot of problems with flare and ghosting, CA on a high level, barrel distortion at the wide end, light falloff wide open (untill f11), sharp only stopped down 2 stop.

Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8-4 review by crmorse

Pros:
Cons:

Replaced this with the Canon EF 28-135 due to softness all over and a general lack of contrast. The colors from this lens always looked washed out.


The close focusing distance was nice. This lens is nearly capable of macro work (albeit with a low magnification ratio)


One advantage is it is very light weight.
