constant-aperture wide-angle zooms

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Ben Rosengart, Mar 27, 2005.

  1. What constant-aperture wide-angle or wide-to-normal/slight-tele
    zooms lenses do people here like for EF or EF-S mount?

    F/4 is a little slow for a walking-around lens for me, but Canon's
    16-35L costs about 2x too much. Tokina 20-35/2.8 maybe? That'd get
    me both wider and longer than the 28mm/1.8 prime I use these days at
    the cost of a stop and a third (and, ahem, about $600). How do
    people like that lens?

    Ok, enough shopping, time to go do some shooting.

    LOL Ben,

    Have you seen the new
    Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 EX Aspherical DG DF AutoFocus Wide Angle Zoom Lens with Hood for Canon EOS Cameras

    Seriously though, I checked Adorama's web site. If you narrow your search to Sigma>Canon EOS>Wide -Tele
    you'll see the lens I'm talking about. They're selling it for $409.00 Although it troubles me that they don't mention it's macro capabilities as they do on the Sigma web site.

  3. Heh.

    Yep, sure have -- but I'm still not convinced that it isn't the
    one that disparages. How are you so sure, anyway?
    Seen it, yup. I definitely hope this is a worthy lens, as I'd
    rather go down to 24mm than up to 75mm.
