    You can only carry around with such a “solution for every day” only for money. In addition, the picture is rather bland - there are more interesting zooms.

      He doesn’t break his arm out much when a bat.handle / batlock is attached to the camera.
      I use it with the SD-1 Merrill and the original bat.handle.
      I did not feel any inconvenience from weight and dimensions.

      This lens is plastic ... I used to run around with the Tokina 28-70 f2.8 AT-X PRO ... this is really a test. And Zeissovsky 24-70 will not be easier. If it is really easier to search for something, it will be really worse. For in a good light zoom there can be no compact optical scheme. and a quiet nimble motor must also turn this circuit. Well, at least protection from splashes ... that's what we get.

        It's not really plastic.
        But weighs more Tokin 28-70 / 2.8
        Tokin, by the way, is more compact (the diameter of the Sigma filter is 82mm, while Tokin has 28-70 or 28-80 - 77mm), and it also feels more compact in the hands.
        In Tokins, a big plus is the absence of a trunk and better security of the structure.

    > Sigma 20-40mm Zoom 1: 2.8 EX DG Aspherical IF [+ -D], 17/13 [2 ASP], from August 2001
    Quite a rare lens, few reviews - there is no Lens Club at all, there are 2 old reviews on photo_ru, there are no reviews at all on the Yandex market.
    *
    Now on the topic:
    SIGMA ZOOM 24-70mm 1: 2.8 EX DG MACRO
    Thank you for the photo with D70 - you have warmed your soul pleasantly on today's cloudy rainy day.
    > "The lens was projected on a DLC with a low pixel density."
    I have such an EX DG Macro under the SA mount, which is native to Sigma - I use it on the Sigma SD-1 Merrill.
    The lens is soft to 5.6, then everything comes back to normal. I have no negative impressions for him (maybe you can buy it inexpensively). Yes, the motor is not particularly fast. Yes, it can catch hares even with a hood.
    Yes, 82mm filters are expensive (although you can find used ones in good condition).
    On my specimen, there is some uncertainty when you change the focal length from 28 to 24mm, the lens focuses less willingly or less quickly, because the trunk “falls out”.
    And 24mm is better for covering the diaphragm more than 28mm.
    The velvet coating is quite delicate.
    Maybe later I will buy myself 18-35 / 1.8, but this one still works in general and everything suits.
    Perhaps later I will buy the same or later Sigma 24-70mm 1: 2.8 EX DG HSM under Canon.
    I don’t want to take Nikon, since there is Nikkor 28-70 / 2.8D

    In all the above photos, the aperture is 5.6, 4.0 in colors, and 6.3 in example 6.
    I didn’t close further, because it was interesting how the lens behaves on such diaphragms.
    One of the reasons is the reluctance to raise ISO, relative to the base ISO100 for Sigma.

      Thank you for photos. Can you prepare a gallery from it and I will add it to this review, type EXIF ​​and give a link to the archive with the sources? And then there is really little information on the lens, and there are a lot of information on flea markets like Sigma.

        Arkady, unfortunately raw from the camera is not preserved.
        JPG I can throw in full resolution, there are not so many photos yet.
        I will write you VKontakte.

    It seems to me or are the photos from D70 (most) too oversharpened? Here with the D3200 soft and realistic

    Foveon has a huge advantage over other matrices in terms of real color, detail, a certain reality of the picture, but it is noisy from 400. Thank you for the review, but this lens loses to the high-quality Tamron 24-70 / 2.8 VC, and costs not much cheaper.

    Well, I don’t know, to test full-frame lenses on old crops ... It’s better to find a full frame somewhere, the charm of a wide angle is not revealed. On the crop, he can only click something large, no macro

      By the way, yes, I did not add pictures from the full frame. There will be a reason to update 3. By the way, it’s paradoxical, but the d3200 still has the highest pixel density among all Nikon CZKs. She has 24 megapixels on a crop of 6016 * 4000, the rest of the crop is exactly 6000 * 4000. Therefore, even with the d3200, one can well judge how good the lens is in certain situations. Yes, in terms of density is higher than that of d850 or z7.

    Today I bought exactly the same lens, but for Canon EF mount.
    I already have one at Sigma SA. Today I traded with a small surcharge Nikon 35 / 2D (moving away from this focal towards 28mm and 50-85mm) for this Sigma from the review. The lens was in almost new condition, almost perfect shelf preservation.
    First impressions - the Canon 1Ds mk2 has a different picture than the Sigma, possibly due to the matrix structure. The sharpness on my copy is very good and even at 4-5.6 everything is very good with it, while on the SD-1 Merrill I constantly wanted to close the aperture a little more.
    The weight of the 1Ds mk2 + Sigma 24-70 / 2.8 EX DG Macro bundle is impressive - no need to go to the gym.
    Focus today never missed, focusing is also fast. I haven't tested it on 1Ds mk3 and film EOS3 yet, but I'll write it back later if I don't forget.

    This lens has one caveat (or drawback).
    When working with the CZK - everything is ok, there are no problems on 1Ds_mk2 / 1Ds_mk3. The color is great, the focus works right the first time.
    There is a caveat that the lens is not confidently focusing at 24mm.
    This is on Canon EF mount (on all cameras and + film) and on Sigma SA mount.
    I have two of them and both are in good condition.
    But at 24mm, AF performance is worse than at 28mm. Design feature.
    And yet - there is a suspicion that on the film it takes the color to yellowness, adding urea (sorry, but it is) into the frame. Especially I compared it on different films I know and was surprised that AutoBB works correctly on digital - both on Sigma SD1 Merrill and on Canon Units.
    But this lens spoils the film. And any - Kodak Gold200, Kodak Aerocolor (here not urea, but some red-brown shades climb), Kodak Vision 3 250D and even Kodak Ektachrome E100. Another nuance - on the film the lens sometimes "falls off" from the camera. But this rarely happens, thank God, you need to shoot and put it back, which is fraught with exposure of the frame.
    There is also a moment such that a lens with an exposure meter of a film canon EOS3 works in a peculiar way - you have to set a correction of -0,3EV (sometimes -0,67EV).
    Probably I will no longer use this lens with film, as it is not a cheap pleasure to overscan with color correction.

    I have a problem with this lens. Daylight and remote flash are fine. But. It is necessary to put a mounted flash on a shoe - and write is gone. Autofocus does not catch anything at all. No, he regularly squeaks, pretends to be focused, but in fact - yes focus there, as if walking to the moon. You have to switch the mode to tracking autofocus - and voila - life is getting better. But still not 100%. In general, for indoor reporting, he sums up ((

      For a long time I thought that only my copy had such a problem. But, as it turned out, this happens not only with this model. A friend's ART 35ka on d850 behaves similarly. The problem was partially solved by changing the focusing area to automatic - then it more or less hits if the camera bothers to choose the right subjects :)

    This lens has a design feature, and it doesn’t matter what kind of mount it will be (although on Nikon F this lens goes under a screwdriver and it may be different there).
    Under the Sigma SA and Canon EF mount, over time it becomes difficult to focus on SHU: 24 / 28mm.
    On the SHU, the trunk of the lens comes forward and can loosen relative to the body.
    Maybe there is a problem with the cable or something like that.
    I had one for the Sigma SA mount, and problems with focusing at 24mm were already starting there, but as soon as the trunk was rolled back to 28mm, everything focused fine.
    At EF, my lens was in a more recent shelf condition and it showed up there 2 years after purchase. Namely, at 24mm, he stopped focusing, and at 28mm after one or two. I'll try to take one of these days to the official service - the master cursed, but reluctantly agreed to take him to look. Officials, both Canon and Sigma, are extremely reluctant to take the lens to work 3-5 years after it was removed from production.

      And if someone decides to buy it under the video, the noise of the motor is audible and is somewhat reminiscent of the noise of a drill at a dentist. In general, this is not L-ka :-)
