Canon 24-70mm 2.8 better choice than Sigma 17-70mm

EF24-70_28LU_C

My new Canon 24-70mm 2.8 lens arrived today and I admit I got quite a thrill opening the box.

I’d had a go on the Sigma 17-70mm, which I bought because a friend took stunning photos at my wedding with it.

The Sigma was disappointing and seemed to produce very soft photos on my Canon 7d. Not sure if it was a dud lens, but it’s going back to the shop regardless.

I decided the investment in the Canon was worth it (it cost £900 cf w/ >£300 for the Sigma) and I was right.

It focuses really quick and produces amazing photos – I’m amazed at the bokeh (blur around the subject) it creates, really nice.

I even like the weight of it, it feels really solid.

I’ll post up the photos I get with it next week.

    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly
    enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    I wish to express some appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of this type of instance. After surfing through the search engines and getting methods which are not pleasant, I believed my entire life was well over. Living without the presence of approaches to the problems you’ve solved all through your good report is a crucial case, and those which may have adversely affected my career if I had not come across your blog. Your own personal know-how and kindness in controlling every part was vital. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a step like this. It’s possible to now relish my future. Thanks very much for the reliable and amazing help. I won’t be reluctant to propose the blog to anyone who would need guidelines about this subject matter.
