    I need to replace my aged Sigma 28-70 2.8 APO lense, after giving 12 years perfect results it now under exposes by at lest two stops!
    Nikon's 24-85 3.5/4.5 is one lense I have looked at, but all reviews mention distortion at both ends of the zoom range (The lens feels ok, if a bit small, but the prospect of distortion & the 3.5 aparture are off putting)
    My other option is the Sigma 24-70 2.8 DG. my past experience with sigma 2.8 lenses (I have 2) is good, but I do not have a dealer nearby & will need to travel to see one. I have read good & not so good reviews!
    Anyone had experience with this lense?
    Thanks.

    I used to use a sigma 24-70 F2.8, and got some great results.
    I moved to Canon's own version, which is better, but not by a huge amount.
    I'm actually considering going back to the sigma version, in order to free up some cash for a different lens.

    Have you looked at the Tamron 24-70mm? I've just received one from Intro 2020 this morning. First impressions are very good. It's a good bit cheaper than the Nikon model, comes with image stabilisation and tests as well as the Nikon glass on DXOmark.

    Thanks for the info guys, adding the Tamron to my list gives more food for thought!Smile
