I know Derek uses this on a 1D anybody else?

I use mine of a 5D every now and then and its fine on that. Should be great on a 1D.

Although Im starting to look for something else a little wider for general use. Back to the toss up between the 18-50 2.8 and the tamron 17-50.

Here's one out of my MkIIN. SOOC

I believe Teamspeed has one and uses it on his MkIII.

I find it almost the ideal focal length range on a 1.3 crop. Makes it plenty wide enough for most walk-around and general use.

Thanks Derek. Cameta still has them for about $220 so once I sell everything I will likely pick one up.

Be sure to look at their Ebay store, they usually have it for $199 plus $14 shipping there.

Not every one they list is at that price, so look around at their listings.

Thank you again. My 1DMKII should be arriving tomorrow and a friend of mine has a 24-60 and will be coming over tomorrow so I will get to try it firsthand before buying one.

Hey All, I have had my 24-60 for over a month now, but i believe that it is not focusing properly. What do you think?

Focused on the middle tip of the "W". F2.8 at 60mm. I tried it with my 10-20 and 17-85 and the focusing on the body works fine.

Try the test there and see what you get. It may need to be sent in for calibration.

Mine definitely has some focus issues . . . will be sending it in in a few weeks when I send in my camera body for servicing . . . .

At any rate my roommate:

Here's one from wedding I shot last month. I think I need to calibrate my monitor, the WB might be off. :confused:

Shot in the church was with no flash, ISO1600 used (no NR used so probalby noisey)

Yes, happened to me too. In fact, twice. First recalibration was done by CRIS Cam in Phoenix, with some improvement. Used if for a few weeks, still was unhappy, sent to Sigma USA. Turn around and ship back to Phoenix was less than a week. Problem is I have been in San Diego for three without it and the camera, as they wanted both. My advice: send it to Sigma the first time.

I know this is not a very impressive image... that is until you realize that it was taken from a moving boat.
