Sigma 24 70 2.8?

Is this lense any good? Hope so cos i just skanked one for 150. Soon find out i suppose be here next week.
Certainly bit more cost effective than Nikons new offering in that range that alot of people say is a pile of overpriced junk anyway!!!

Not sure about the 24-70 but my Sigma 24-60mm is fantastic.

Re: Sigma 24 70 2.8?

i was going to ask about this lens. I was thinking about the canon 20-70 f2.8 L but if the sigma does a decent job it would definately be a cheaper purchase!!!

anyone experience of them both?
