The Camera Bag Staple
Sigma’s 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM large-aperture standard zoom lens covers a focal length from 17mm wide angle and offers a large aperture of F2.8 throughout the entire zoom range, making it ideal for many types of photography especially portraiture and landscapes. The OS, Sigma’s anti shake feature offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. HSM provides fast and quiet AF. Sigma’s own FLD glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite along with two glass mold and one hybrid aspherical lens, provide excellent correction for all types of aberrations. The Super Multi-Layer coating reduces flare and ghosting. This lens boasts superior peripheral brightness and provides sharp, high contrast images even at the maximum apertures.

-Build Quality: This lens is built like a tank. It's very solid, and also very heavy compared to the 18-55mm kit lens. It is much bigger and is just of higher quality overall
-Image Quality: I'm a VERY novice camera user, but I could see an incredible difference in both my photos as well as videos in how sharp/detailed the images look as well as how nicely blurred the background can be.
-Value: This is both a wide angle prime and a standard prime. You can buy the international version (which I did) for less than $300. By far the best value in its category in my opinion.
-Optical Stabilization: This works very well in my experience and this thing takes amazing handheld video as well as stills.
-Literally the only thing I can even begin to complain about is the autofocus. This isn't really an issue for me as I almost always record external audio of some sort, but if all you have is in-camera microphones, you WILL hear focus noise. It's very clicky and can definitely be annoying. I can't dock it a full star for this but I would dock a half star if that were possible here on Amazon.
Overall, it's a great lens. You should buy it. If you are on a budget like me, it's a clear choice over a fancy Canon L Series lens.
The lens itself is nice and sharp. The AF is decently fast and the fast f2.8 aperture is welcome when shooting indoors. Optically, I am very happy with this lens. The OS (optical stabilizer) seems to be working fine.
When using the lens, you have to be aware that this is a slightly older model, and the focus ring rotates during autofocus. In addition, you have to move the switch to manual focus if you want to manual focus. You cannot override the AF by just turning the focus ring. This also results in a somewhat irritating situation if you happen to have your fingers on the focus ring during autofocus. Since the ring turns, you'll hear a whine when it fights your fingers. So, try to keep your fingers off the focus ring when using AF.
Next, the image metadata from my Nikon D7200 does not correctly note if the image stabilization is on or off. This is a minor thing, but is one of those compatibility things you should be aware of.
I've saved the biggest compatibility issue for last. The OS system of the lens stays awake for a full minute, keeping the camera from going into standby for a whole minute (I have mine set for 6 seconds). I have yet to shoot through a whole day using the lens so I cannot provide an accurate number regarding how much this affects battery life. However, from other sources I have read, this can reduce effective battery life by 10-20%. My workaround is to turn off the camera when I have completed a sequence of shots. I have read that a Sigma service center can update the firmware on the lens to deal with this issue. I have not tried that yet.
My overall thoughts?
This lens is great optically. It is also much more affordable than the comparable Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED Zoom Lens with Auto Focus for Nikon DSLR Cameras, which costs over twice as much. The compatibility issues are relatively minor, and if you carry a spare battery or two with you on long shoots, will not result in major issues. I am happy with the lens because it gives me good optical quality at an affordable price. I'm removing a star because of the compatibility issues, but that is not going to stop me from using the lens.
