Canon 17-55 or Sigma 17-50, What do YOU think?
Apr 24, 2011

I have done lots of reading on lenses, and there isn't too many people debating on the sigma vs. canon 17mm-50's it only seems to be tamron vs. sigma with what many people are talking about.

So here is my case, I just bought a 7d and need a lens. I want either a Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 or a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 OS. Because of my purchase for the 7d, I will be getting a 15% off coupon so I can get a refurb lens for $800.

So... is the Canon 17-55mm REALLY that much better than the Sigma 17-50mm...

it seems like they are very similar, the Sigma is really good quality and comes with a free hood and a cleaning kit and is a noticable $130 less

get the Sigma 17 - 50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM - $670
or the Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM- $800
