I sold my Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 Art last week as AF did not perform well in dim light. Bought a used Canon 24-105 F/4 for the time being which does a much better job in dim light. I do want a faster lens with better optical quality. Figured I wouldn't loose much if any on the 24-105 and after 6-12 months of reviews I can then decide what direction to go:
Canon 24-70 F/2.8 - no stabilization - $1,750
Sigma 24-70 F/2.8 Art - has stabilization - $1,299
Tamron 24-70 F/2.8 G2 - has stabilization - $1,199
Good plan. I really want that stabilization, but decided to just go with a used Canon 2.8 II. And even though I don't have it yet, assumed I would be 100% set on selling the 24-105 II. But, even though they seem very redundant, I may keep both. That 24-105 is just a ridiculously useful range...I use the entire spread all the time. And of course the IS works really well.
