  • Arkady Shapoval

    Sigma 20-40mm Zoom 1:2.8 EX DG Aspherical IF cosplay, 2001

  • Michael

    I just didn’t understand one thing - why?) Better 17-30 / 35 or classic 24-70

    • wj

      How is this why? 17-35 / 2.8 are expensive and heavy, and this tamron is more compact and light, it also reaches 40mm. Yes, and it will probably cost less than $ 1000.

    • Gandalf

      An excellent replacement for 28-75, which lacks a wide angle, and sho 40, sho 75 - one fig portrait. That's how I'm going to change. Yes, and 200g lighter and less. Ideal as an all-rounder. And perfectly complement 50-400.

      • B. R. P.

        It's not a fucking replacement. Too different focal lengths.

        • Gandalf

          For portraits, both 40 and 75 will do.

      • Victor

        Replacement is not a replacement, but as an addition to 50-400 fire, for general plans.

        IMHO, 20-40 is an excellent ratio, it is already wide enough not to carry a separate width, weight and dimensions are not burdensome, the price, apparently, too.

  • wj

    Very interesting model! Focal lenses would be great for street photography for me.

  • Dmitry Kostin

    Weight: 365 gram
    Thought it was a typo.
    And indeed 365 grams.
    My Tokina 20-35 / 2.8 weighs 585 grams
    (for comparison, my past widths weighed:
    Nikon Nikkor 17-35 / 2.8D - 745 grams
    Sigma 15-30mm f3.5-4.5 EX Aspherical DG DF - 615g)
    Amazing.

  • Oleg

    slightly trimmed 17-55 \ 2.8. The question is the price

    • B. R. P.

      And what about the cropped 17-55?

      • Arkady Shapoval

        In general, some kind of nonsense, cropped mirror and full-frame mirrorless :)

  • Oleg

    Sorry not attentive, it's full frame. Very interesting solution compactness misled
