Large aperture standard zoom lens provides superior performance both for Digital SLR Cameras and 35mm Film SLR Cameras To achieve an F2.8 aperture at all focal lengths, it employs three aspherical Lens to provide optimum aberration compensation. Two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements are provided for color aberration compensation, to assure high image quality. Optimized for digital SLR cameras It incorporates Super Multi Layer Coating to reduce the influence of harmful light caused by reflections from the digital image sensor. Excellent correction of aberrations Two SLD elements, one Glass Mold Aspherical plus two Hybrid Aspherical lenses provide excellent correction of various aberrations and a high level of optical performance. Minimum focusing distance of 40cm The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 40cm at all focal lengths and is capable of macro photography with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8. DF (Dual Focus) System This lens incorporates a Dual Focus (DF) system that is designed to make the lens easy to hold during autofocusing, and yet provides a large focus ring for easy manual focusing. Petal Type Hood Since the front of the lens does not rotate, a Petal-type hood and circular polarizing filters can be easily used.

And I have been very pleasantly surprised. I have been very pleased with the shots I have taken with this lens even in comparison to photos taken with more expensive Canon L-series.
I use it on a Canon 400D. I don't notice the reported 'excessive' motor noise at all. The lens focuses quickly and accurately (which is important to me for sports photography). Colours come out vibrantly. The lens also allows me to take indoor shots without using the Canon's overbright built-in flash.
A lot of peope make a fuss about the noise of the lens - but honestly if you are doing work in just about any area other than very quite nature work, this isnt an issue.
It does make a slight buzz when focussing, but about 6ft away you couldn't hear anything at all, and even when using the camera it focuses so quickly that I couldnt say I found it intrusinve.
Unlike Canon this lens ships with a hood, high quality case etc. and when I consider it is 30% of the price of the equivalent Canon (the L series) then for me there was is question - I will buy more Sigma lenses.
I have taken some truly beautiful pictures with it
Built like a tank
Lovely matte black finish
Great range on APS-C sensor
Very sharp >f/3.5 or 4
A little soft @ 2.8
Slight zoom creep - Probably because of the heavy glass!
The focusing is fast and not noisy at all. Very happy with my choice.
Also the lens barrel on mine (maybe not others?) falls forwards, rolling from 70mm to 24mm whenever the camera is facing downwards with the lens barrel at the ground. This surely shouldn't happen! It should have enough grip to hold its focal length! I have a feeling that this issue has worsened since using.
Also I got some dirt particles inside the elements of mine within the first month of use. I've tried to keep it as clean as possible although have been on a fairly hectic 5 week trip with the camera and lens always together in a camera bag. There are quite big gaps between the barrel elements so its easy to see how this could happen.
Its a real shame as the lens looks at first sight to be really quite good quality. Its big, heavy and aesthetically very pleasing but upon finer inspection mine fails to meet the grade. Sure its a lot cheaper than any canon lens but its not actually that cheap an item so annoyed its not better.
The auto focus is a bit slow especially focusing from one extreme to the other and I have to say the lens hood provided is pretty useless and in bright light gives no protection from lens flare so be prepared to make one yourself out of bog roll if bright lights are your chosen subject.
I love the matt black finish and also the weight which in my opinion gives more stability when shooting but thats just my personal preference.
All in all pretty damn good considering you would be paying over £600 for an L series of the same focal length.
I returned the lens and eventually bought a CANON 24-105 1.4 L IS USM. And can only give it 10 out of 10 a brilliant lens of the highest pro quality. It was expensive but worth every penny. I will only be buying Canon L series from now on.
Expensive but you get what you pay for.

Amazon as usual were great on returns and refunds.
