    Cant decide, 24-70 Sigma 2.8 or Canon 2.8L

    Anybody messed with both of them? I wanna save and get the sigma, but if the Canon blows it out of the water, I'll go ahead and jump on the Canon 2.4 L

    Wat? Canon 2.4L?

    Do you mean 2.8?

    And the 24-70 f/2.8L is fucking :bowdown:

    If you mean the sigma HSM version, then I would go with the Canon cause the price difference is like 300 bucks and at least the Canon version is proven

    I have the 24-105 4.0L and it is pretty badass.. However, I'm contemplating trading it for a 24-70L cuz I mostly shoot indoors/low light.

    I can't speak for the sigma, but Canon L is :bowdown:

    I did the same thing. Don't ever miss the 24-105 either.

    Go to the store, pick the Sigma up, pick the Canon up...I think it'll be pretty obvious. The build on it is pretty nice, the photographer I shoot with has it.

    Sorry i did mean the 2.8. My friend has a sigma and loves it, but than again, hes never touched the sexyness of a Canon L.

    .

    If you get a good one, sure.

    That 30mm is really, really, really horrible with QC. I know 6 people who own one, 1 is happy.

    I have one, and it's unreal within 1-2 metres, once you're outside that it's literally useless.

    -1 for sigma.
    wasn't a huge fan of my 10-20.

    i loved the 10-20... just wanted a 2.8 constant aperture. what do I do? I go and buy the most expensive and the heaviest 2.8 wide angle Nikon offers. of course!
