Upgrade from Sigma 18-200
« on: September 21, 2012, 06:09:46 AM »
Hi

I have 2 Sigma-lenses for crop-cameraes, 18-200 DC and 10-20 DC (in addition I have the sigma 150-500 lens)and I am thinking about  changing the 18-200-lens with a better lens. I have a canon 40D-camera, but possible will go full-frame in the future. I am thinking about the Canon 24-105L-lens.  Is this the way to go?

The 24-105 is cheaper as part of a kit, and the focal length range is better suited to FF than APS-C.  A lot of people find 24mm to be too long on a crop camera for a mid-range zoom, but that is really up to you.  If you're ok with 24mm at the wide end, then the 24-105 is a good choice.  Just look for deals (about 860 currently from authorized dealer in US -- see canonpricewatch) because there is a large variation in price for this lens.

If you want a lens with a larger max aperture, then the 17-55 f/2.8 IS is a good choice.

I think 24-105 is fine on my 60D but it really depends on your style of shooting. I find it to be a bit tight (and slow) indoors, but outside it's fine, for the most part.
