Re: Would you still buy the EF-S 17-55mm 2.8 IS USM?

Hmmm, i had the same experience with the Sigma 18-35 on my 80D. AF using the VF was quite erratic. Using LV it was spot on.

Its a nice lens, and very sharp when it nails focus. I have borrowed this lens twice as i really wanted to get one, but i had a lot of miss focused shots. Not off by much, and not always, but comparing them to shots taken with Live view they could be quite soft.
