Lenses / Re: DXOMark: Sigma 24-105 f/4 DG OS Reviewed
« on: January 01, 2014, 11:12:26 AM »
After shooting over 500 images with my new S 24-105 I am much more pleased with the wide end than I ever was with either of my 2 Canon copies. The OS and AF are great without any discernible difference to the Canon counterpart. It weighs a TON but I'm used to lugging a Tamron 24-70 around so it's ok for me on a 5D3. I was able to shoot down 4 stops at the long end without issues and it controls flare somewhat better than the Canon. Bokeh is oniony but it's no Sigma 35.

Worth $854 anyday imho. (B&H EDU price)

That is a very handsome image.

Some call it luck, some call it persistence .... and freezing your ### off waiting just for the right time :)

 ;D

This was pretty cold, but nothing like winter in Canada ! Shot with the 6D and 24-70 f4L @ 40mm. A hand held five vertical frame panoramic. The new 24-70 f4L is a great match for the size of the 6D, which is a really is a really good fit in your hand.

As I have mentioned before there are some annoying features that the 6D has been given. I actually don't have any issues with the 8 way controller or the AF,  but why on earth have Canon fitted the camera with a magnify button which you have to press before using the command wheel to zoom in and out ? I mean why not use the same system as on the 5D et al ? The same buttons are there for heaven's sake !

Also there is no dedicated flash compensation button, which although you can adjust through the 'quick menu' isn't the same. You can live with all these things but it doesn't make the 6D a good second body to a 5D IMO.

First, that is a gorgeous capture!  Secondly, I can't disagree with your conclusions.  I still get messed up zooming at times.  My advantage (I guess)is that I use two 6D bodies, so at least I have consistency between them.  It helps at events; I don't waste time reaching for buttons or wheels that aren't there.  Still, above all it is the results that matter to me.

Here's another from my 6D/Rokinon 14mm combination.  That lens is just great for how little money it is!!


That's a great shot Dustin. You were very lucky with the sun; when it just breaks through the cloud on the horizon it produces a wonderful effect. Love the back illumination of the ice.

That is pretty much my favorite "version" of sunrise and fortunately one that you can get even on a day that will turn out to be overcast.

There's some truth there...

Here a few of the photos that I have shared that I took with the lens over the course of the review time

Great series. I especially like the light in the first one...It's beautiful.

Thanks a lot, Click.  You are always great to take the time to comment on everyone else's work.

It's been awhile since I posted. I've been kind of lazy. But here are 3 photos with 3 different lenses. Tamron 90 VC, Canon 50 1.4 and Tamron 24-70.


All nice photos.  I particularly like the last one.  Great framing

Hello everyone.  I have just completed my most recent review of the Tamron 90mm VC Macro lens.  This is a great option for someone who doesn't have the money to spend on the Canon 100L Macro.  Take a look here if you are interested:

http://www.dustinabbott.net/2013/12/tamron-sp-90mm-f2-8-di-macro-11-vc-usd-review/

There are many, many pictures included along with my typical real world review of the handling, functionality, and performance of the lens.  Thanks for looking!
