sigma 17-50 compared to canon kit lens
Jan 23, 2014

I have just purchased a sigma 17-50 lens from amazon.ca for 350.00 CA.  So I guess this post should have preceded - but I can still cancel!  I've read and heard good reviews about this lens and it's certainly within my budget (suspiciously cheap actually).  I'm especially interested in using the wide angle range of this lens and so was wondering if anyone has some specs or knowledge of how the canon kit lens, 18-55 performs near the wide angle mark.  The 2.8 aperture is a bonus for sure but I'm interested in having a general purpose lens that also does excellent landscape photos.  Thanks
