    Default canon 24-70 vs 24-105 ART

    Hi everyone =)


    Im looking to sack on of these as well... they basically cover the same range. But i dont know which.


    Few things... i use 105mm a lot, i dont use macro a lot, the sigma is significantly heavier than the canon.

    Seldom use this focal range anw.



    If you were me, which would you sack and why? Doesnt matter what i shoot or what not, what would you do if you were me? Keeping both is an option haha but just plain unnecessary.



    Trading the canon lens for a 135 F2L in case anyone is interested =)



    Thanks again

    You probably need to put more information in the post...

    - The 24-70 is f2.8 or f4? and mk 1 or mk II?
    - What do you usually shoot?
    - What caused you to buy both in the first place?

    As for your Want to Trade (WTT), I suggest you start that post in the "Personal Classifieds" corner instead.

    If neither make any difference to you... Just keep the one you feel more comfortable with.. but I personally prefer a "general" purpose lens which the range of 24-105 feels better for me... YMMV.

    honestly prefer the sigma for the general sharpness but if you have ever held both, the sigma is just too darn heavy haha.


    But noted on the 24-105 part, i agree on that too

    Deciding on "what lens" kind of question will almost always revolve around compromising... So just compromise on what you feel is more important.. weight, focal length and sharpness.
