Sigma 17-70mm f2 8-4 Contemporary: How is the Wide-Angle?

In my first hands-on for the 17-70mm f2.8-4 Contemporary, I investigated all the major features except for the wide-angle. No opportunity presented itself to use the shorter focal lengths. In January, I had the time to shoot the missing wide-angle photos and to get an idea of the image quality the 17-70 C offers on ...

My preliminary Conclusion for the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4

I didn’t have the opportunity of testing the wide-angle range. It just wasn’t to be. Either I didn’t’ find the time to take a tripod with me to shoot stopped down landscapes and buildings, or it was too cloudy or too cold to stay outside for a longer period of time. This is why I ...

New photos with the 17-70mm f2.8-4 Contemporary

Because I don’t have the 17-70mm C that long, in the last couple of days I’ve used the lens exclusively, in order to learn more about it and get familiar with its features and character. This is how I came to notice that you can get very close to your subjects at wide angle as ...

Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 Contemporary Link Collection: Reviews, Sample Images and Videos

It’s about time I did something for the community, especially for those who are interested in the new Sigma 17-70 “C”. It can indeed be time-consuming and tedious to google all the information on an only recently published piece of equipment on the market. So that Fotogenerell-visitors don’t need to do just that, I compiled ...

New firmware updates for lenses

A few days ago SIGMA published new firmware updates for lenses. The four new editions are models with Canon EF and Sigma SA mounts. The updates are said to have led to improvements concerning the auto-focus as well as to a reduction of the operating noise of the shutter lamellae. Sigma has published firmware updates ...

Review: Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG HSM Contemporary lens

The Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG HSM is my second Contemporary lens. Except for belonging to the same lens series as the 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM which I also have, they hardly have anything in common. It is large and heavy like every other full frame compatible telephoto lens with an extremely long focal ...

The Last Photos Before it Began Snowing

While calendarically, winter has long since begun, in reality it was a long time in the coming. Temperatures here were partly above fifteen degrees in the first half of January. Only a few days ago, it got abruptly cold and began snowing for the first time. As expected, unprepared for the climatic carousel as I ...

New Photos with the 17-70 C

This time, it took me very long to shoot some presentable photos. Partly, this is because of hibernal sloth, but partly also because of the numerous Serbian holidays. Did you know that Serbia celebrates its New Year twice? That’s right! The “international New Year” as we all know it, and the “Serbian New Year” in ...

Sigma 24-105mm f4 Art Link Collection: Reviews, Sample Images and Videos

Once again, I spent hours googling to find as many reviews, sample images and videos as possible. The result is this collection of links for the Sigma 24-105mm f/4. Interested in Sigma equipment but want to spare tedious research? Just have a look at my other collections of links: Sigma 60mm f/2.8, 17-70mm f2.8-4 Contemporary, ...

Swans and Dogs

My second last photo session was rather macro-based due to the bad weather and miserable light. I think that “flat” and low-contrast light is best suited for macros. Here, high contrast is not desirable. But if I want to take photos of animals, I usually wait until the sun shows up, so that the colors ...
