Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 vs. Canon 24-70L f/2.8
Jun 11, 2012

I am interested in a real world comparison of the sigma 24-70 f/2.8 against canon's 24-70L f/2.8 both first generation and 2nd generation. I want to add a 24-70 f/2.8 lens to my collection but not sure which one to go with. I feel I can't go wrong with L glass, but the price difference (always seem to be that way) makes me have to consider the Sigma. The reviews I have read go both ways on the Sigma. I can't help but wonder if it is user issues that cause the complaints or if there is that great a difference in production standards from Sigma. I am currently shooting with a 60D but at some point will step up to a full frame camera (probably in a year or 2).

Thanks in advance for all the input that I get.
