    Recommendations to replace the Sigma 17-50mm

    Thanks all for the advice. I think since I already have the sigma, there isn't a clear night and day lens that could replace it. Would appear I need to change focal range to 24-70. Just hate the idea of spending a grand on a lens hurts the stomach.

    Recommendations to replace the Sigma 17-50mm

    It might be but for the £400 it cost it is heavy, felt old and didn't nail the focus as quick as the sigma. Took a 3 shot burst to get the best shot. The sigma could nail it on the first try. Downside is I am loosing the full range the 17-55 offers. I was really hoping it would just be bam...

    Recommendations to replace the Sigma 17-50mm

    Don't know how I missed that one. Looks like a good buy second hand. I appreciate you get a sharper image on prime but when I had the 85 1.8 and still the 50 1.8 I never used them. Where I shoot more "in the moment" I found I lost more shots rater than got more better quality ones.

    Recommendations to replace the Sigma 17-50mm

    Hi all, currently have the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8. Great lens for the price point and it has served me very well as my main lens. However I will be doing more magazine work soon and there are little points which it falls short on and I don't wait that causing issues. For example at 17mm it can get...
