Need Some New Glass? Sigma Has 25 Lenses on Discount
We like to keep you all informed of the best time to make your larger purchases to save your hard-earned money, and now is one of those times. Sigma has 25 lenses on up to $200 off some of their top selling glass. They also have three flashes on sale, including a macro ring flash.
Rather than describing the lenses with information you’ve probably read before, I decided to source some reviews of a few of the lenses on sale from users who are already enjoying Sigma glass.
“I am really loving this lens. It is crazy sharp even wide open. Got it with a D7000 and shot a wedding for my Brother-in-law last weekend. It is noticeably sharper than my nikon 50mm 1.4G at 2.8 (which is why I am selling that now).”
“This is great and I’m very pleased with the sharpness and image quality over all. I’m not a pixel peeper but I did magnify a couple of my photos 100% just to look, and great stuff! This is my first sigma purchase and being a dyed in the wool Nikon fan was a little nervous but my fears were wasted. In my opinion a great lens for your
crop sensor camera.”
the sigma 24-70 F2.8 and 70-200 F2.8 are my two lens I canʼt live without. I love my sigma kit they have never let me down
My friend had an older version of this product that I borrowed a few times, and liked the results. When I upgraded recently I decided to splurge on this one. Lots of people were telling me to get the Canon product and pay the extra grand, but truly there is no reason so far to spend that extra money.
Great lens, never saw myself buying a lens that cost this much, it was purchased at a good price considering what I would have to pay for the same Sony version. I purchased this lens for my Sony A99 and I haven’t been disappointed with it yet, Super quite when shooting weddings and doing event photography it also has
outstanding low light picture quality.
Love it, love it, love it! I wish I could show you all the great hummingbird shots and others this lens has helped me capture. I picked it over the Canon, simply because it was a few hundred $ more affordable and the great reviews in numerous periodicals. I haven’t regretted that decision.
I purchased this lens for my wife as a gift. Our children are avid dancers and we needed a good lens to take action shots in low light conditions. After an exhaustive search I decided this would be the best lens for the price. It is everything I had hoped it would be and I am very pleased with it. I am nowhere near an expert, but if you are on a budget and want to take your photography to beyond just point and shoot I would consider this as a good upgrade.
“I, want this lens! I, want this lens! I, want this lens…. Even trying to win it on Digital Photography and Outdoor Photographer… I, want this lens.”
“This lens never ceases to surprise me! The level of detail it picks up (even in lower lighting), fast-focus, and versatile range has made me keep this on my Canon 60D about 90% of the time. I love shooting sports with it!”
“I purchased this lens to use with my Canon 60D. took a road trip around the U.P. this weekend to see some fall color, and Iʼm now looking over some awesome fall pix that I took with this lens, Iʼm impressed Sigma great job. I can officially say way to go sigma you 2 for 2 with my lens collection.”

“I would like to say that you will love this lens if you need to get that shot now! It ‘s range is perfect for that closeup & then the picture you need to get in which your not as close as you wish. I have several L. lens canon’s and wasn’t sure about it but now that i have played ‘I am HAPPY.’”
“GREAT LENS. WORTH EVERY PENNY Like it says in the title, worth every penny!! I’ve had this lens now for about 2 weeks and have had the chance to use it indoors, outdoors, at a house party and in a in a basketball gym. Places where the casual/amateur/pro photographer would go and this lens came to work every time. It’s focus is fast and accurate, Bokeh is very nice, and it worked great in low light.”
“I was debating getting the new canon version but as an amateur and a parent, I couldn’t justify spending over $2k on lenses. The Sigma version is a great alternative as it produces very sharp pictures!”
“My only regret is that it took me almost 2 years of agonizing with my kit lens before I decided to get high end high quality lenses.”
“Probably the most useful lens I have. Works great on a FX body!”
“After testing the expensive Canon f/1.2, I decide to purchase the f/1.4 because the price difference, I was skeptical first cause I never owned a Sigma, but after using the f/1.4 for several months now, I can say THANK YOU SIGMA… What a incredible glass, very fast and precise focus, sharp images, color rendition is flawless, what else can I say…ohhh wait a minute, I saved over 1G….:)”
“I hate this lens! Why? Because you cannot find any on the used market, that is a real testimony how good this lens actually is.”
“I have this lens and it’s fantastic. Much cheaper than the new Nikon 85mm f/1.4.
This lens is fantastic! Itʼs a leader in itʼs class and one of the sharpest lenses Iʼve ever used. The bokeh is as good as any lens in its class…creamy and super smooth.”
“Iʼm in love. I sold my Nikkor 24-70 f2.8 to get this lens with never a regret. Iʼm in love! This is my favorite portrait lens. I sold my Nikkor 85mm f1.8D after I bought the Sigma 85mm f1.4. I could not be more pleased with the results it gives with my D700 and D7000 camera bodies.”
