Product Description
Sigma Corporation adds unique, anti-shake technology to award-winning 17-70mm lens Sigma announced the new Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC MACRO OS HSM. This large aperture standard zoom lens offers an aperture of F2.8 at the 17mm focal length and is ideal for many situations such as portraits, sports, macro and general photography The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. The maximum aperture of F2.8 makes this lens ideal for hand held photography as well as producing an attractive background blur and high speed auto focus. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 22cm (8.7..) throughout the entire zoom range and maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7, making it ideal for close-up photography. It is possible to focus as close as approximately 4.7cm from the tip of the lens to the subject making this lens particularly useful for close-up photography. Three aspherical lenses and one ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass element provide excellent correction for all types of aberrations. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides high contrast images. The incorporation of HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures a quiet and high speed AF. This lens has a rounded 7 blade diaphragm which creates an attractive blur to the out of focus areas of the image

4 out of 5 stars   very versatile for all of my photo needs
By Underwater Photographer (Seattle Washington) October 24, 2012
Review submitted for Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Lens for Nikon Mount Digital SLR Cameras (SG1770OSNA)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Consistent Output, Strong Construction
Cons: Heavy
Other Comments: My 17-70 is mounted to a D7000 Nikon. I use the camera in an underwater housing where I typically shoot fish and some natural foliage scenes. I like the versatility to move quickly from macro to wide angle with the same lens (cause you can't changes lenses underwater). It is my 'go-to' lens for dive/photography. I also use it for landscape work and again find it to be the most versatile lens in my kit.

3 out of 5 stars   Great lens, struggles in video mode
By photodad (Denver, CO) October 06, 2012
Review submitted for Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Lens for Canon EOS Mount DSLR Lens Kit Bundle (E6SG1770OSEOS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy transition, Step Up From Kit Lens, Quality pictures, quality lens
Cons: heavier weight, Large Lens, Video Slr Mode Struggle
Other Comments: It's a great package, the only unexpected disappointment was how poorly the lens functions on the video mode of the canon T1i. Without an extreme amount of light the video quality is very dark and low.

5 out of 5 stars   Best bang for buck walkaround lens
By AtlantaDad (Atlanta, GA) September 27, 2012
Review submitted for Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Lens for Canon Mount Digital SLR Cameras (SG1770OSEOS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Consistent Output
Cons:
Other Comments: I bought this for a Canon T3i body I purchased. I really like this lens as it checks all the boxes. It has a lens range that can cover the vast majority of casual picture taking, it is brighter than a typical kit lens and can be used in low light, it's not too heavy and small enough to fit in a bag made for the camera with the standard kit lens. It's definitely bigger and heavier than the kit lens, but it's wider, longer, and brighter and ultimately is a great price for what you get. I have no regrets as I get great pictures with it.

5 out of 5 stars   Sigma and Nikon is a good combination
By Diblueboy (Catano PR) April 12, 2012
Review submitted for Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Lens for Nikon Mount DSLR - Pro Lens Kit (E5SG1770OSNA)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: As my primary lens is better than Nikkor 18mm 105mm or 18mm 135mm, night shots excellent low low low noise and no hot pixels or white and red dots. On macro the lens is excellent and better w/M focus. Excellent quality material, Things that aren't so great about it, the lens bayonet should cover the camera bayonet or put a big O ring like I did

5 out of 5 stars   Another GREAT lens from Sigma
By Ted Magic (Yonkers, NY) June 06, 2011
Review submitted for Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Lens for Nikon Mount Digital SLR Cameras (SG1770OSNA)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Strong Construction, Lightweight, Easily Interchangeable, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Consistent Output
Cons: Shortens battery life, Lens motor always on
Other Comments: This lens provides an excellent range for a variety of uses. From landscapes to portraits to marco with this f-stop range it is unbeatable. PLUS, you get Optical Stabilization! Of course the best part is the affordable price. I will have to check with Sigma to find out if it is normal for the motor to stay on even if the OS is switched off. The extra battery draw is not noticeable yet, but, I haven't used it all day yet. So far, I've only use it around the house. That's my baseline. I can compare pictures of the same subjects with my other lenses. With the Sigma 18-200mm OS and Sigma 70-300 with macro non-OS, I can cover everything I need. ...at least for now.
I recommend this product Yes, I recommend this product
