If you have such special condition at the first place, dont you think you should go proper means to take proper care of yourself such as tailor made clothes? isnt it kind of obvious? If you have such a problem and stubbornly try the product, insisting all product should be brand new when you try it, I am sorry but this is outright selfish. Remember, for one single t-shirt, before you want to try it on, you might want to consider that a lot people have tried it before.

Yeah, that comment sort of shows your ignorance on how common that is. A piece of dog or cat hair is easily inhaled off a piece of clothing when someone tries it on. In some cases this sends people to the ER. This obviously isn't as big of a problem with lenses, but in some cases there are still issues. A family member has a severe allergy to black mold. If she gets near it, she has seizures. She avoids used book stores, garage sales, laundromats, etc. She's had problems with clothes that she later found out were returned.

There are a lot of folks out there with all kinds of issues that may seem strange to the regular SUV-driving male with gelled hair and a Burger King Whopper in his mouth. Severe allergies are common. Remember, not everyone wants what has been in your house.

Then for god sake, dont buy from the mentioned shops which has such reputation.. this is the vendor way of customer service as well as to improve sales..
I'm willing to bet my last dollar that NCCB couldnt have expect this when he started the thread.

So I am guessing most people wouldn't mind receiving a one-week used lens at full retail price?

I know I would prefer a lens that is BNIB.

Horrible thread.

1. Lack of ethics by OP
2. Comparing pictures of dead leaves
3. The shots are handheld with inconsistent exposure

BTW, my opinion is to purchase the Tammy, since it costs the least and offers good IQ. Use those saved funds towards the 24-70 L II after upgrading to the 5DX.

this is precisely the kind of mentality prevalent in parents who are afraid to let their children play dodgeball in school for fear of a scraped knee. so if a piece of cat hair can be inhaled, do you then NOT go to any store? because if you come from a home with a pet, wouldnt you be worried about going to ANY place where there are other people, for fear of someone having an allergic reaction? or, as a person with allergy, do you consistently avoid any place that has a gathering of people?

Quick question, do I need to mount the hood on Sigma 17-50 all the time? Since I have a tiny camera bag, there is no room for a hood. I have B+W UV at the front and happy its performance. Any difference?

I am not acquainted with the OP but really disappointed by the Squeaky Clean Forumers (SCFs) here, destroying a thread which might be useful to people to make a comparison.

While his review might not be useful to you, he is one of those who actually contribute info to this forum. I appreciate his time taken to upload photo, crop and compare the difference.

Putting ethics aside (this is totally nothing to argue about since the vendor approves it, how many times have we state that), calling this thread horrible esp by someone who put 25 posts (maybe useless post) in 2 years is totally uncalled for.

I think you are trying to pick up a fight behind the screen.

the hood is functional for protecting the lens from glare and the front element from bumps. you have the second purpose covered by the UV filter. you dont have to have the filter front-mounted at all times... will it fit into the bag if its reversed on the lens? unless the bag is completely packed, it shouldnt add more to the girth of the lens

The truth I don't hood right now, and wonder if I need buy one. The bag (lowepro flipside 200) is also very tight to hold all my stuff. I did store my 100mm hood in bag with reversed mount since I found big difference. That's my question.

Sigh......indeed. I have lurked here for months/years and haven't seen a thread go this direction with people attacking each other.... I would have already locked the thread if I could. But oh well.

doesnt the sigma come with a hood? i thought only the canon 17-55 doesnt come with a hood included. IMO, a hood is more function over aesthetic form, so if you can fit it in, take it

Yes, it does. I saw reports online of the hood fitting loosely but mine fits fine.

i recommended the sigma to my friend for his 60d, and he is extremely happy with it. i shot with it, the hood is snug.

I am not attacking anyone, I'm just felt that it is unfair to brand the OP unethic/for creating a horrible thread when he is trying to contribute. I believe the forum is strong due to our contributors here.

If they dont like about the policy of the return goods, they can contact the mentioned sellers.

The review is totally going off track thanks to the SCFs..


Back to the review, I find that Sigma 17-50 is tack sharp with great contrast, but I had to try for several copies in the shop before I get a copy without any focus problem
