Not too many posts here. Not a very numerous lens, from what I understand. I almost didn't buy this lens, I was looking for a tamron 28-75 when I found this one for a great price. It has done a really nice job for me.

This taken indoors without flash at 1600 ISO. I rarely shoot in jpeg but did with this one. I have done no pp except crop.

Nice work! Very smooth transitions. Nice PP and subject with strong composition.

I'm still a fan of this lens, although I have never owned it. At the price, I think it is a steal.

Have any of you recently sent your 24-60's in for calibration? I called Sigma today to find out if they still do calibration and they told me two things:

1. That the 24-60 can't be calibrated because it's a ROM lens (not FlashROM or EEPROM)
2. They can no longer get parts for this lens.

I ask because a friend has a 24-60 he wants to sell me but it seems to front-focus. I'm worried that MicrofocusAdjust won't be consistent across the range and the results will vary on what I focus on. Having been through the "lens is off" routine before I'm concerned.

Thank you!

So has this proven to be true? Seems like some people sent theirs to Sigma after this post.


I like this lens, especially for the money. I'd rather not buy a Tamron 28-75. But there are a lot of front focusing issues with this lens, and if Sigma won't work on it, that isn't really something I want to deal with.


Thanks.

this was my first non-kit lens on 20d, my copy was sharp and precise, I liked quick AF and quite good build quality. Tamron 28-75 had slightly crispier colors/contrast at the expense of AF speed. I have 24-105L at the moment which has superior colors/tones to any non L lens I have ever owned - just my 2 cents.

Having just picked up a copy of this I was sprised how nice it feels but am not impressed yet with the sharpness.

Maybe a bad copy? My 2nd copy isn't as sharp as my first one, but it is respectable.

It's important to differentiate between focus errors and optical softness. The latter can't be corrected for, while the former theoretically can.

If my copy is any indication, the 24-60 isn't as sharp as Sigma's latest glass (which is razor sharp -- the 17-50, for instance, is incredible), but it should shine on full frame or on lower-resolution crop cameras such as the 40D.
