Sigma 28 mm f/1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro

 

The increased popularity of APS-C digital reflex cameras created a problem with standard lens. In small format analogue photography a standard lens meant an instrument with 50 mm focal length and 1.4-1.8 aperture. Connected to digital reflex cameras,...

good image quality in the frame centre from f/2.8 aperture ; low chromatic aberration ; low distortion ; quite good work against bright light ; solid housing ; minimal focus already from 20 cm ; rich standard accessory kit ; 3+2 years of guarantee

very weak image quality near the maximum relative aperture ; unacceptable performance at the edge of full frame practically at all aperture values ; visible coma and high astigmatism ; huge vignetting on full frame ; noisy and unreliable autofocus ;...

Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG Macro

 

This lens from Japanese manufacturer Sigma is their answer to a ‘do everything' lens. With a zoom ratio of nearly 11x it covers everything from wide angle on a full frame sensor to long telephoto on a cropped sensor. We take a look at how it performs.

Huge focal range; Compact and lightweight to carry; Good performance through the short end; Good value for money

Softens a tad at the longer settings

Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG

 

Originally designed for full frame 35mm film cameras, this lens has now been upgraded as part of Sigma's programme to make all of their lenses compatible with digital sensors. We take a look at whether this focal range is still useful in the digital age.

Picture quality, especially edges.; Size and weight for f/2.8 lens.; Price (especially from ePz shop)

Autofocus

As a fast and relatively lightweight lens for standard to short telephoto work, this lens has a lot going for it. Although small and light for it’s genre, it is well built, nicely torqued and felt right in use. The picture quality was good throughout...

REVIEW: Sigma 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 DG Macro

 

This lens is nicely compact for it's capabilities although it does extend somewhat as you zoom to the long end of the range. The extension, achieved by a double trombone, comes out some 52mm. It does so with quite a smooth action though and the second...

Good focal range; Compact and lightweight to carry; Excellent performance through the range; Cracking value for money

CA around the edges at the wider end; Distrotion just evident

If you need a general purpose lens to carry on your camera, and use the long end as much as the wide, then this offering is well worth a look. The excellent resolution figures achieved through the middle to the long end are a pleasant surprise and make...

If you need a general purpose lens to carry on your camera, and don't use the long end that often but would like to have the option there without changing lenses, this could well be the item you are after. Good performance through the shorter half of...

Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Lens

 

Like the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Lens, the Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Lens is a well-built, well-spec'd lens with a value price. But, giving up 4mm of focal length range on the wide end results in a much more compact lens. In addition, the 28-70 is...

Sigma's zoom ring turns the opposite direction from Canon's zoom lenses - neither is better unless you are very used to one direction or the other. A zoom lock switch locks the lens in the retracted position. This switch is not necessary unless this...

The new multi layer lens coating and lens design reduce flare and ghost, which is a common problem with digital cameras and also creates an optimum color balance through the entire zoom range. This lens features two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass...
