17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro (OS)* HSM | C
Contemporary Design, Out-Of-This-World Performance
The 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro HSM OS is the first lens in the Contemporary category of Sigma’s Global Vision. The Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 was designed to be the ideal all-purpose lens for APS-C sized sensors. With a great focal length and macro capability, the 17-70mm F2.8-4 is also equipped with a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and an Optical Stabilizer (OS) for superior image quality. The HSM ensures quiet, accurate, and fast autofocusing while the OS compensates for camera shake when shooting by hand. The construction of the 17-70mm includes new TSC material (Thermally Stable Composite), which allows for increased durability as well a reduction in size by 30% compared to conventional models. Two FLD glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, are incorporated with one SLD element to reduce color aberration at the highest degree. The 17-70mm F2.8-4 Macro DC HSM OS is compatible with the Sigma USB dock for an increased level of customization. The perfect all-purpose travel lens, the 17-70mm F2.8 Macro DC HSM OS is a must have for any camera bag.

I shot indoors, outdoors, landscapes, with and without flash in some incredibly dark places. I was very impressed with the 17- 70's performance as a multi-purpose lens. 17-23 gives you great wide angle options for larger rooms, buildings and gardens. 30-50 worked well allowing me to compose and fill the frame with a subject at near distance. 70mm helped bring things in I just couldn't get close enough to.
The lenses focus is extremely sharp (at all focal lengths). Of course every lens has its "sweet spot" range but I have no complaints here for a lens at this price point. Color and clarity are also excellent. The focus ring is nice and wide, smooth (with the right amount of drag), and is easy to grip when manual focus is used. There is no zoom creep when you carry the lens barrel down and hiking. It stays put (retracted).
On this trip, I visited several exhibits that did not allow any flash photography. This is where a F2.8 lens is really useful. I was happy with the raw captures and got some compliments on many of the photos. The "OS" on this lens is great. You can be tired, or a little shakie and no one will be the wiser. I've only shot a handful of video with this lens, but like stills, its performance has been nothing less than excellent. This lens is a nice step up from a comparable lens in a "kit" camera package, but is by no means professional grade. That said, you will notice a big difference between the photos shot with this lens in comparison to a "kit lens" that comes with your camera. You'll be VERY happy! It's quiet, takes super sharp photos and is extremely versatile. Price new (Amazon) or refurb from direct from Sigma is extremely appealing. The pics below are Mendocino, Liverpool, Sausalito, Paris and the Loire Valley.
The Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM has a longer ranger than the Canon 17-55 IS, while still offering you image stabilization, which the 24-70 f2.8 L II does NOT have! And if it did, just how much would Canon think they could charge you for it? That lens already costs as much as my first car!
In conclusion, buy this lens if you are looking for sharp optics, fast focus, and a decent amount of aperture to boot. Check out my sample photo of my wife cutting the neighbor girl's hair... I took it from my desk, hand held at 1/60, 70mm f4, indoors with only ambient light, OS on, and at ISO 6400. Its not a great composition, but you can see the excellent color rendition and clarity of this glass.
