I have absolutely no problem with the Sigma's I have - 10-20 3.5, 17-50 2.8 and 70-200 2.8 OS, all three are tack sharp even wide open. Coming from a Canon snob, I wouldn't have dreamt of Sigma lenses 5 years ago. Just returned to the Canon fold after a (very) short time on M43 cameras - good system but didn't cut it for me at weddings and the money I got back wasn't enough to get Canon glass but I'm certainly not disappointed with the IQ from all 3.

I have three sigma's 10-20, 70-200 and 150-500 the latter are OS and they are excellent.
Plus if you go on Sigma's web site you can get 3 year guarantee free. Now that to me is excellent service.
I don't know of any other manufacture that has that much confidence in there product

I've recently bought the 17-70 f2.8-4 and I love it, it's the perfect walkabout lens, light, fast dependable.

Had quite few Sigmas, and all have been very good. Now using the 18-35 Art and the 50Art for portraits (APS C). Stunning build quality, autofocus is excellent and IQ is simply outstanding. Don't think sigma was ever a great risk in my recent lifetime.
