Sigma Lens Review

Although I had a great time shooting with it for the past event, I wanted to put together a couple tests for it before I send it back.

I did the focusing test to see if it front focus, trying foreground, middle, and background.

I compared it to my old Sigma 28-105mm. One of the first things I noticed is that it has the same contras. Remember when I used the Tamron 17-50mm last month, instantly it was much brighter than my Sigma, so I could get better exposure with lower settings.

I shot this bottle of Kraken Rum (hey I had to use what was laying around, right?) under natural light, and looked at the detail in the label, blur in the background, and colors.


Random clutter (not in my house!) 

I didn't have this lens for long, but I love it already. I will make some kind of decision whether I need to pursue the Sigma, which performed very well during my event shooting, or get the Tamron, which was cheaper and performed great during my short shoot.
