hello,

In about a month or so I'm looking into buying a new lense. I really like to take closeup/protrait, but in some senses I like to take sport shots for my school. I took some time to look into the sigma 28-70mm F2.8 EX DG. I read some reviews and I like what I read, but I am still a beginner. Is the lense worth it's money? My budget is 300-450ish - would you guys perfer a different type of lense? If so, which? Anything information would be greatyl apperciated, i could use a little help =X

-thanks!


Remember! protrait/closeup meh! =)

Love the Tammy!!!! Though I don't think it will suit you for sports. Remember, you can't get a lens that does it all.

Well the Tammy will do you just fine! I'm sure you will love it. The only problem is it's quite long at 28mm. If you want something wider, check out the Sigma 17-70. But the Sigma isn't a constant aperture like that of the Tamron.
