In short

The SIGMA ZOOM 28-70mm 1: 2.8 EX ASPHERICAL is an old fast universal lens of the film era. The camera works well on digital cameras, but it is noticeably inferior in resolution and the number of aberrations to modern lenses. It can be a budget replacement for modern lenses of the 24-70 / 2.8 class.

There are a huge number of such high-speed universal Sigma zoom lenses, a list of which can be found at the end of the review.

Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical attracts with its strong case and low cost in the secondary market.

History

Sigma has the largest family tree of universal high-aperture zoom lenses. It is sometimes very difficult to distinguish one model from another, as well as find information on a particular modification.

Below are listed all such lenses in chronological order of their publication, the names are indicated according to the spelling on the lens housing or near the front lens, and the optical design and the number of special elements are indicated:

  1. Sigma 28 70mm 1: 2.8 Zoom, 13/10 [without special elements], from May 1992
  2. Sigma 28 70mm 1: 2.8 Zoom EX Ashperical [+ -D], 15/12 [2 ASP], from the end 1998

Assembly

The case design resembles the subsequent model SIGMA ZOOM 24-70mm 1: 2.8 DG EX ASPHERICAL.

Build quality Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical is at a high level. The lens is very nice to the touch, well shot down without any obvious flaws.Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical uses a metal mount. The retractable frame of the housing consists of one section. The focus and zoom rings are rubberized.

The lens body is covered with a characteristic Sigma lens. velvetwhich is typical of many old SIGMA lenses. This coating may be overwritten, after which the lens does not look so beautiful.

Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical has one feature - the trunk of the lens lengthens with a decrease in focal length. Sometimes it’s a little annoying, it’s usual that the longer the trunk of the lens - the more focal length installed, but it wasn’t there. Therefore, it is often joked that such lenses have a focal length range not of '28 -70 ′, but of '70 -28 ′.

Unlike a similar lens Canon '70 -24 ′, the hood is not fixed near the fixed part of the frame of the case, but near the thread under the filter. Bayonet type hood.

Устройство aperture comprises 9 not rounded petals and forms a hole in the shape of a regular 9-gon.

Focusing

Auto focus speed high (closer to average). Focus speed is independent of camera orientation or focal length.

For focusing, a conventional micro focusing motor is used, which makes a lot of noise. The nature of the noise is unpleasant.

The lens does not use internal focus. During focusing, the front lens, together with the filter frame, does not rotate, but moves forward. When changing the focal length, the front lens does not rotate.

The focus ring rotates a little less than 90 degrees. The stroke of the ring is smooth.

The minimum focusing distance is 40 cm, and the maximum macro ratio is 1: 4.3.

When used on a camera Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi (aka Canon EOS DIGITAL 450D, aka Canon EOS Kiss X2 with very simple 9-point focusing system) the lens behaves normally, does not often make mistakes in focusing. The only problem found was that the lens often did not focus correctly at infinity (it focused much closer). On camera Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi I checked the presence of the back and focus front at different focusing distances (infinity and MDF as well). Pictures taken using the Live View mode (which does not suffer from back / front focus) were used as a measure. Focusing accuracy using phase sensors completely coincided with the Live View mode.

Focus Features:

  1. Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical has focus mode switch 'AF-M'. To perform manual focus lens required must be in focus mode 'M'. Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical does not have the function of continuous manual focus control.
  2. During auto focus focus ring rotates and cannot be touched.
  3. There is the effect of 'Focus Breathing' (changes in viewing angle during focusing). During focusing towards MDF, the viewing angle increases.
  4. Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical is a third-party lens. It may happen that it will not work correctly with some Canon EOS cameras.
  5. When changing the focal length, focusing is a bit confused.
  6. The lens has scale with focusing distance in meters and feet. Such a scale in itself is of little use and is present more for show (justification of this thought here) The distance scale is plotted on the focus ring, and not made using a special window.
  7. Unknown compatibility with teleconverters.
  8. Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical does not have hard stop (hard infinity mechanical stop) which allows you to accurately and quickly focus the lens at infinity under any external conditions.
  9. Focus shift (shift-focus) is missing.

Image quality and sample photos

I used a Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical lens with a Canon EOS DIGITAL Rebel XSi crop camera (aka Canon EOS DIGITAL 450D, aka Canon EOS Kiss X2), because I can not judge some of the features of this lens in full, in the first place it is not clear what image quality at the edges and corners of the frame when using it on full-format cameras.

The lens is rather mediocre at F / 2.8 in the center of the frame over the entire range of focal lengths, while the lens is not so bad as to completely abandon the use of F / 2.8. The picture suffers from chromatic aberration. Distortion acceptable for a lens of this class. Vignetting on APS-C cameras is slightly noticeable even on F / 2.8.

Optimum image quality is achieved at F / 5.6-F / 11 and medium focusing distances.

My experience

Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical is old and not very noticeable. If you are looking for a balanced budget model that can be a replacement for a 24-70 / 2.8 class lens, let’s look at Tamron SP AF Aspherical XR Di LD [IF] 28-75mm 1: 2.8 Macro A09.

UPDATE, version for Nikon

Came to me to review a copy of the Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical for Nikon cameras. It looks like this:

  • Unlike the version for Canon, the version for Nikon no focus mode switch... To convert the lens to manual focus on cameras with motor For focusing, use the focus mode switching lever located near the camera mount. For cameras without motor Only manual focus mode will always be available for focusing.
  • Auto focus with this lens is available. only when using it on cameras with a built-in focus motor. The exact list of such cameras can be viewed here... During focusing, the focus ring rotates and should not be touched.
  • The lens has manual aperture ring. To be able to control the value aperture from camera or for automatic installation aperture on modern central control valves, you need to turn the control ring to the extreme position and fix it with a special switch, which is located on the right. If this is not done, then on a number of cameras, the display will display an error - 'fEE' (ring is not installed aperture) Some cameras having diaphragm rheostatallow you to control the aperture using the ring aperturebut only in metering modes exposure 'M' and 'A'. You can read more about this issue in the section on Non-G Lenses. Ring aperture rotates with clicks.
  • One shot at him and Nikon D700 I have here

Results

Sigma 28-70 / 2.8 EX Aspherical - an old man, can be a good solution for enthusiastic amateur photographers.

Advantages

  1. fast focus
  2. during focusing, the front lens and the thread under the filters do not rotate
  3. good maximum magnification ratio for macro shooting, which is 1: 4.2
  4. focus distance scale, depth of field and tag for working in the infrared spectrum
  5. good build quality, sturdy construction, metal mount, rubberized focus and zoom rings, the lens does not change focal length under its own weight, bayonet type hood. Considered a professional Sigma EX lens
  6. 9 petals aperture, the lens creates fairly smooth blur discs
  7. F / 2.8 over the entire range of focal lengths, a very convenient set of focal lengths
  8. aspherical elements in the optical scheme
  9. normal sharpness in the center of the frame on covered apertures
  10. weak vignetting on Canon cameras with APS-C sensor (crop)
  11. acceptable distortion
  12. lack of focus-shift during iris

The main disadvantages

  1. ordinary micro focusing motor instead of an ultrasonic motor (or similar), which use original lenses
  2. unpleasant noise during auto focus
  3. rotation of the focus ring during autofocus and, as a result, lack of the function of constant manual focus control
  4. small focus ring travel
  5. while zooming and / or focusing, the trunk moves forward
  6. focusing falters while changing the focal length
  7. the zoom ring rotates in the opposite direction (inconvenience for those who have original Canon zoom lenses)
  8. rear lens movement while changing the focal length, small effect of a vacuum cleaner / air pump
  9. 'Focus Breathing' effect (changing the viewing angle during focusing)
  10. the lack of a protective O-ring near the mount and the absence of any dust and moisture protection, which is critical for a professional lens
  11. outdated model not optimized for use with modern digital cameras (optimization only starting from Sigma 28-70 DG model)
  12. poor image quality: poor resolution on open apertures, strong chromatic aberrationlow backlight resistance
  13. slight bulb bokeh effect
  14. there may be incompatibility with some cameras and / or teleconverters (no exact data)
  15. lack of data about the lens in modern cameras, which makes it difficult to automatically correct some types of distortion (distortion, vignetting etc.)

Comments: 19, on the topic: Overview of SIGMA ZOOM 28-70mm 1: 2.8 EX ASPHERICAL

  • Pokekmon

    Nice picture and color.

  • zengarden

    I had one, only for Nikon (with the letter D), sold it along with the camera. In general, not bad, although the focal points are inconvenient on the crop. Sharpness was inferior to Tamron 17-50 / 2.8.

  • Dmitriy

    Than to shoot with such a sigma ... It is better to take Gelik-81N. Twist your hands and bring home a gorgeous shot!

    • Fedor

      Wow! Compared F ... with a finger! It is still necessary to think of it is necessary to compare the fix (whatever it is) with the manual fix ...….)))))))

    • Arkady Shapoval

      If you suddenly offered a choice between G81N and this Sigma, I would definitely choose Sigma.

      • Dmitriy

        well then nikon 28-105mm is better than that !!! not so much money it costs

        • anonym

          But what about Helios 81N?))

    • Valentine

      Dmitry, well, you really compared a very mediocre manual fix, with prof. zoom. Meanwhile, for people who make money with photography, the choice of zoom is an essential thing. I would like to see how you will photograph a wedding or corporate event… Customers, to put it mildly, will not understand your “gorgeous shots”.

  • Dmitriy

    By the way, I had only good impressions for the G81N. This is my first lens and took very good pictures on this glass. Now I only have top glass (Nikon 14-24 / 2.8G, 35 / 1.4G, 85 / 1.4 ART), but I will never say bad things in my life for 81N. But if they told me you could have only ONE glass. I think it’s already clear that this would not be this gopo-sigma!))

    • Pokekmon

      "Not this gopo-sigma!)"
      It costs the very little money that they ask for at the flea market.
      Not everyone has a brand new $$$: Tokina 24-70 / 2.8, Sigma 24-70 / 2.8 ART, Nikkor 24-70 / 2.8Е.
      For the keen but not wealthy amateur, this Sigma is quite an option.
      If you do not want 28-70 / 2.8 EX, then at flea markets and in some places in stores there are slightly more expensive 24-70 / 2.8 EX DG, which Arkady spoke well of.

      • Dmitriy

        I agree with you! 24-70mm EX DG will be more interesting in comparison with this model!

  • reader

    I apologize for being a little off topic! I have this question: is it worth putting a polarik to tessar 50 2.8?

    • Oleg

      Yes, you can put it, but I think the polarik on the crop behaves best on focal lengths from 15-35 mm, and 50 seems to be already too narrow.

      • Jury

        I used to have a polarik on the crop and 17mm, if there was a lot of blue sky in the frame, it had a very uneven color. Color leveled starting at about 24mm

        • Oleg

          Well, probably yes, the 15mm most critical points are wider, it makes no sense to climb at all, but at 18mm it still looks like that. Simply, if you take a polarik, then for a lens that is sharpened for a landscape, and if the tessar's diameter is less than that of a landscape painter, then you can use the adapter ring. For example, your landscape painter has a diameter of 58 mm, you buy a polarizer with a diameter of 58 mm and through an adapter ring 58 to 49, of which there are a lot on Ali-express, install it on Tessar. But I don’t see any reason to buy a polarik specially for Tessar

  • Alexey

    And I liked the photos from this sigma. Let sigma, albeit ancient, but the quality of professionalism in personnel is felt.

  • Maksim

    Years of release are not entirely accurate. In fact, from 1998 to 2000.

  • Jeanne

    Hello! Is this lens suitable for the Sony NEX-VG900 camcorder (E-mount, full frame)? Are there any video files captured with this lens?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Will not work. If you really want to, you can install it through the Nikon-Sony E, Pentax Sony-E adapter (depending on the Sigma modification, it is desirable that the version has a manual aperture control ring), with only manual focus and only manual aperture control).
