Sigma 24-70 f2.8 vs canon 28-70 f2.8 l

I AM CONTEMPLATING BUYING ONE OF THESE TWO LENSES. IDEALLY I WOULD LIKE A CANON OR TAMRON 24-70, BUT CANNOT AFFORD THEM.

SO, I THOUGHT EITHER http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&k...l_8a1rfdvgwh_b

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sigma-24-70m...ds=24-70+sigma

OR A USED CANON 28-70 www.mpbphotographic.co.uk - Used Secondhand Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8 L USM

HELP AND ADVICE ON THESE LENSES MUCH APPRECIATED

Re: Sigma 24-70 f2.8 vs canon 28-70 f2.8 l

The Tamron gets good press lately and Blackadder has reviewed one

Pixalo Photographic Equipment Reviews - 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD -

UK prices for the Sigma are about 200 less than the Tamron but has no stabilisation.

And the Tamron is available from One Stop Digital for 600

Camera Lenses :: Tamron :: Canon Mount :: Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens for Canon - Onestop Digital

Re: Sigma 24-70 f2.8 vs canon 28-70 f2.8 l

THANK YOU GRAHAM, I HAVE JUST HAD A LOOK AT ONE STOP, THAT IS A REALLY GOOD PRICE, ALSO THEY STATE FREE SHIPPING AND NO IMPORT CHARGES, MAKES ME WONDER HOW THEY CAN DO IT FOR THAT PRICE.

I WILL CERTAINLY BE CONSIDERING IT THOUGH, JUST NEVER ORDERED FROM ONE STOP BEFORE, SO A BIT HESITANT

Re: Sigma 24-70 f2.8 vs canon 28-70 f2.8 l

Woody, i recently bought a lens from them. Ordered on the web site at 3.30pm our time, so after hours in Hong Kong. At 3.30pm on the following Wednesday I was holding the lens in my hands!! 48 hours exactly from the order being placed.

In the rare event that you do get charged import duty, get a proper VAT receipt, scan it and e-mail it to them and they will re-reimburse you. Check out their Ts&Cs it is all on there.

THANK YOU GRAHAM, THEIR SERVICE SOUNDS VERY GOOD, THAT IS A VERY FAST DELIVERY FROM HONG KONG.

A VERY GOOD PRICE AS WELL, AS AMAZONS PRICE IS 783, SO THAT'S A BIG SAVING.

I WILL PROBABLY GET IT AFTER CHRISTMAS, AS I WOULD NOT WANT IT GETTING LOST IN THE CHRISTMAS POST FROM HONG KONG.

That is a great lens and is the equivalent of a 24-70 on a crop body.

But is there free delivery and the promise to reimburse any taxes? And has the seller got the long history of reliability and customer service? I do find cheaper prices than One Stop, but research has kept me away from these sellers.

Not so long ago during the initial stages of the world financial crisis, I often found that UK prices were cheaper. As with everything else, it is always worth shopping around, but make sure that you compare like with like.

Woody. I have had deliveries by FEDEX and it is usually next day. (Mind you the FEDEX driver lives in the next street to me, he parks his van outside his house ).

Let us all know Woody. I am thinking of splashing some cash very soon and that lens was on my radar as an alternative to a Canon 24-105 F4. I read the reviews too.

I don't know how it performs or how the spec stands up, but I'm sure that Sigma now do a 24-105. Might be worth a look if the range is useful for you.

LATEST UPDATE :- IT HAS BEEN SHIPPED VIA DHL, IT HAD A STOPOVER IN LEIPZIG AND THE LAST TRACKING INFORMATION WAS, AT 3.28 AM THIS MORNING, IT WAS AT EAST MIDLANDS AIRPORT CUSTOMS.

NO LATER UPDATES THAN THIS AT THE MOMENT, I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT WOULD HAVE COME TO GATWICK AIRPORT, UNLESS IT WAS DIVERTED TO EAST MIDLANDS BECAUSE OF FOG

This is the normal routing woody. DHL European hub and operating centre is in Leipzig, so pretty well everything flown worldwide goes via there (you should see the operation - very impressive). Next stop is as you see East Midlands - landing fees and ground rent for warehousing less than London, and you need a special setup to handle the D shaped containers. The rest of the journey is by road normally. If you ordered this on Sunday it should be in your hands Wednesday afternoon, or possibly Thursday morning. (I'm pretty certain DHL do not use Gatwick).

The chances are I will be getting the 24-105 Canon as a kit lens (a lot cheaper that way) I will post my choices in another thread so as not to hijack this one.
