Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 OS Zoom Lens


Sigma’s 17-50mm f/2.8 stabilized zoom lens is a direct competitor to Canon’s 17-55mm f/2.8 IS.  Sigma’s lens has similar performance, with lighter weight, better close focusing, and a reduced cost.

The Sigma 17-50mm lens has an EF mount, but only APS-C coverage, making it a good choice for cameras like a T3i, SL1, or even a C100. It also works well on a GH4 or other MFT cameras, with an EF to MFT adapter. For a full-frame camera like the Canon 5D mkIII, you should consider the Sigma 24-60mm f/2.8 instead.

The lens is a massive upgrade from Canon’s 18-55mm, with a speed advantage of 2/3 to 2 full stops.  This makes it much more useful indoors.
