Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro Reviews

Photodo reviews the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro and writes;
“It s slightly soft wide open, as the aperture closed down the lens produced very pleasing results and between f/8 and f/16 was in the area of razor sharp throughout the focal range Despite the strange zooming action the lens provided results well in keeping with expectations.”

Ephotozine reviews the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro and writes;
“This is a large lens that is well built and feels like it will go the distance. The zoom ring is surprisingly small for the size of the mechanism it has to move, but although a little heavy in operation, worked well.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

The-digital-picture reviews the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro and writes;
“The Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Lens is sharpest at the wide end of its focal length range. At 24/28mm, the 24-70 is very sharp in the center at f/3.2… Corners (1.6x FOVCF corners included) need an extra stop at all focal lengths to become very good – generally becoming very nice at f/5.6. “
