    I purchased the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 as a replacement for my kit lens. I did a lot of extensive research before this purchase. I was looking at Canon's version of this lens but decided not to purchase it because it was older, double the price, and had a lot of complaints of the image stabilization breaking after a few years. I really like using this lens, the fixed aperture makes it nice so when I zoom in and out I don't have to toggle with the settings. The picture quality is sharp too. I would recommend this to anyone looking to replace their kit lens, or for anyone looking for a decent fast zoom lens. For the price I paid for the Sigma, I could have purchased two of Canon's version. Also it comes in a nice case with a lens hood. :)

    I'm a full time video producer / still shooter, and I like to take stills and video on my Canon 7D mkii when I'm not shooting on big work cameras. This lens is excellent, sharp, fast, the image stabilization is a huge plus. Great all purpose lens for run & gun style shooting. The auto focus is loud when shooting video, but hopefully you're recording audio externally or manually focusing if you're trying to record sound off the camera's mic. Being able to not worry about variable aperture while punching in when filming video is great. Can't beat the price.

    The Sigma 17-50mm lens is a good general zoom lens for the aps-c camera. It has a wide aperture and decent focal length. It is however a bit heavier compared to the body, so it will have some weight in the front. Overall after using this lens for a month (April 2018) I have rarely removed this lens from my camera and used it in most situations.

    I wanted to get away from using my kit lens because it is, in almost cases, an vastly inferior product to an after market lens. This is an incredible lens. Solidly built, good clarity, and the range of 17-50 is equivalent to 27mm-80mm on my Canon, providing me with a pretty good range at f/2.8 aperture. I liked this lens so much, I also bought one for my Sony. It is my go-to lens for every day use.

    I do real estate photography and like the versatility of this lens. That said, I’m not “blown away” by the performance. It’s a pretty nice lens for video. Just not as crisp as I’d like to present to clients for web display and brochures. It’s great for an “enthusiast“ or advanced amateur but definitely not suitable for professional use.

    This Sigma lens was a great purchase that certainly met my needs. I was looking for a lens with a flexible zoom range as well as a relatively low f/stop that didn't cost an arm and a leg. This lens was just under $400 so it was budget friendly and gave me what I was looking for in a new lens. I absolutely love it.

    I purchased the lens to provide a wider angle for landscapes. I have only used it one weekend and did all of my shooting hand held. So far I am very satisfied with the results and am anxious to see how it will perform using a tripod and mirror lock up (as I should for landscapes). I use the lens on a Canon 50D. I have two Canon L lenses and don't anticipate the same quality of image.

    better value than canon brand, you do lose a bit on the long end but at a constant appature, it serves its purpose as an every day lens. Especially like the small size, as long as full frame is not in the immediate future, why not lose the bulk and enjoy the mobility.
