Sigma 50-150 vs Canon 55-250
Mar 25, 2012

Ok, I need a cheap, light fast tele. Currently I'm looking at a used Sigma 50-150 2.8 which is well within my budget. If I can find the tokina 50-135, that would be better.

Most 70-200 variants are out of my limit, so cannot consider that.

So, before I pull the trigger on the Sigma, I need to know how is it compared to the Canon 55-250. I'm more interested in the AF, sharpness, colour/contrast, among others, in comparison between those two. No. I don't think I will buy the Canon, but if the Sigma simply cannot match the Canon, I might as well wait. My subject is human/portraits.

Thanks in advance.
