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.

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.
I also bought the Sigma USB dock: A common (focus) issue with Sigma lenses is that they're not optimized for your particular camera model so in the past I sent them in for a lens firmware update. No longer needed with the dock, you can do it yourself if needed.
This think is sharp like crazy for a standard range zoom. It beats just about any current lens in the 16-80 ish range
The best part is that it is consistent at all focal lengths with minimal softening at the edges when wide open at 17 mm
The rest of the time It is sharp across the frame. Just about every other lens will have 1-1 very soft corners that require you to stop the lens down to get a consistent sharp image corner to corner. No this lens..
Tests at DPR and SLRGEAR confirm this. DPR talks it down for some reason. But looking at the tests and my experience make it the best "kit range" lens out there for the money. The Sony 16-50 f2.8 might be a bit sharper but has weak ranges and I like the extra 20mm of zoom.
The Sony version has no OS.. since the camera has it. Some complain.. I think it means the lens optics don't float and shift the image at all, so I am fine with it being left out of the Sony version.
I took off one star for the quiet clicks it makes when focusing that sometimes can be heard on video.
