I have a Canon 80D with a couple of lenses:

*Sigma 18-35 f1.8 (i love it and is on the camera 70% of the time)

*Canon 15-85mm (don't like variable F value, not fast, but a versatile lense for good light....thinking of selling)

*Canon 40mm f2.8

*Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary


I am looking at getting a fast lense to compliment the Sigma 18-35mm and was looking at the following:

Sigma 50-100mm - like the range and fast apeture--not sure about having no OS!

Sigma 70-200 f2.8 - Still fast and like the OS, BUT not sure about itnot being wide enough at the short end

Sigma 24-70 f2.8 - not out yet and not sure on price here in Canada...overlaps the Sigma 18-35 a little


Anu suggestions on what to buy. the sigma 50-100 will be $1200 CDN and the Sigma will be $1300 CDN + Taxes


Thanks

I would love to be able to pair the 18-35 with the 50-100, They cover just about all of my uses. I don't think the gap between the 35 and 50 is going to be too significant. Those lenses give you pretty much the full equivalent set of primes that you would have seen in general use on a film SLR back in the 70's: 28, 35, 50, 80, 135. Going all the way to 100mm you also get a bit more reach too. Given the resolution of the 80D, you also have a bit of room to crop if you do find that you really need something between 35 and 50mm. Wide to normal, and the full set of portrait focal lengths, at a very decent aperture, what's not to like. I do at least have the 150-600 C.

I have the 18-35 and 50-100 and am finally completely happy with my kit. I'd love to have the Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, but f/1.8 allows for shooting in lower light without flash, which I prefer to avoid in run and gun settings if at all possible. With the Tokina 11-16 thrown in I've got 11mm through 100mm covered on my 80D with fast enough apertures to avoid using flash wherever possible.

I owned the sigma 70-200 OS and its a nice lens but not the best.

Tried the 50-100 when it came out and it was very nice but I didn't like the small focal range

I personally had the sigma 18-35 paired with the sigma 50-150 OS and found it to be an amazing combo. I actually liked the 50-150 so much that it was the last lens I sold when I switched to fuji and I liked it so much that I still dragged my feet for a few month before finally breaking down and getting rid of it. The down side is sigma discontinued it so you won't find it new. Up side is when you find one used they actually go for a fairly good price and its sharper then the sigma 70-200

Of the lenses you listed I think I would go with the 50-100. If I switched back to a canon (or Nikon) crop camera I would get the 18-35 and 50-150 OS again.
