Just 36 more days before I celebrate the 9th year of my retirement. Where does the time go?

Seems to go by faster and faster, doesn't it?

I celebrated my 7th retirement anniversary back on December 31.

Next year will be my second retirement. I retired from the Air Force 15 years ago and it does seem like yesterday.

After 33 years in corporate work, all for the same company I might add I'm actually looking forward to retiring but I still have at least 3 more years to go :cry:! Time does go by quickly though.

Shooting a charity auction, with backdrop shots and general just walking around shots. Thinking of a Sigma 24-70 Art rental to cover my needs. Any suggestions in favor of the Sigma or another event-type lens?

So far I have not used the sigma 24-70 ART in challenging light or for hired events.

I will say the IQ seems to be noticeably better than my previous Tamron 28-75 f/2.8. The files render "different" compared to my Gmaster glass or even other Sigma Art glass.

The auto focus is extremely confident and I never felt any sluggish reaction. Years of owning my Canon system and EF 24-70L f/2.8 mk2 that lens felt rock solid in performance straight out of the gates. Using the Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 ART glass the performance so far is also fantastic with my Sony.

I haven't put the Sigma 24-70 ART in serious application in hired events. True test of low light AF acquistion in that type of environment. The Vancouver Convention Centre lighting isn't that great. Due to the A73 sensor performance I was able to get away with using a f/2.8 zoom. Just think my Sigma 35 f/1.2 was just sitting in my bag since a demanded 24mm wide and left my 24mm f/1.4 prime at home.

The Fan Expo Vancouver was rather challenging. The photography was the easy part...... keeping a watchful eye on my 3 daughters while enjoying my casual photography. I wish I had more of a relaxing fun photography period but I did have stress assuring safety of my kids.

The Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 ART has rather shocked me. The quality of the images and how the lens performs is well beyond it's price point.

The colours and render is easier on the eyes straight out of camera. Almost giving me a Canon "feel" in how it renders the edges and colours. This lens provides a different less hard look like my Tamron 28-75mm. Of course we can post process but the editing of these files seem like less effort.

I know I should have used my Sigma 35 f/1.2 or have brought my 24 f/1.4 ART prime. The images would have been cleaner due to faster glass. I was eager to push the limits of the sensor and see how the Sigma 24-70mm ART performs. I was quite pleased with the results due to the nice versatility of using a zoom.

it's definitely a nice piece of glass, had brief hands on with it, hate the hood though, seems unnecessarily large (I dont often use hoods, so this wouldnt bother me much). I do like the short stout size, seems a good bit smaller than the GM.

Finally got to take a halfway decent photo of my image on the wall in the hotel lobby in Carolina Beach, NC.

I don't want this to get political. Love the expression on the one guy who noticed Bernie was coming to the podium.

Not enough light for a whole lot of DOF, at least the eye is decent. Wished I'd had enough for sharp
talons too.
