In the lead up to Photokina 2012, Canon announced the new Canon EOS 6D full-frame entry-point model within days of Nikon publicizing their most-affordable full-frame camera to date, the 24-Mpix D600. While the EOS 6D boasted some attention grabbing features including built-in WiFi and GPS and slightly undercut the Nikon on price, it couldn’t match its rival in one or two key areas, namely the less populated AF system and lower resolution sensor.
Introduced in November 2012 as the proposed ‘kit’ lens for the EOS 6D, the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens represents an interesting move for Canon – despite two well respected lenses in this category, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM and the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM hopes to offer a compact, lightweight lens suitable for the newly created lightweight, full-frame camera segment. The red L-series band offers the promise of professional performance, but does it live up to the expectations?
The Sigma 17-70mm OS HSM replaces the previous Sigma 17-70mm HSM launched in 2006 and it’s the equivalent of a 25-105mm on a Full-frame camera.This new model has stabilization.
The 24-70mm f/2.8 is the classic trans-standard lens for Full Frame and it’s available for Canon and Nikon mounts. With a fixed aperture of f/2.8 this lens is fast and suitable for any circumstance. The Sigma 24-70 competes vs. famous and pricey models such as the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM and the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED, we will compare them all on this review.
