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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

Santa Claus said to say hallo

Yes, that’s right, he came to visit me and he also brought a present. You are asking yourselves, which one? A lens! Namely, the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 Contemporary. 😉 It’s too early to draw any conclusions. I can, however, already tell you that even though it belongs to the comparatively cheap Contemporary line, it’s every ...
