Northrup reviews the Sigma 17-35mm f/2.8-4 EX DG IF HSM and writes;
“I love shooting super-wide angle. If Canon made a lens with the same zoom range at the same price, I would probably buy the Canon instead. This Sigma lens owns this niche market, though. While you don’t have many choices in this space, you won’t be disappointed with the lens. ”

ePhotozine reviews the Sigma 17-35mm f/2.8-4 EX DG IF HSM and writes;
“Like all lenses, the performance wide open is not as good as when the lens is stopped down an aperture or two and this one is no different. Once you are through the f/5.6 mark though, the sharpness cannot be faulted.”
