Overview

The Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM is a wide to standard zoom lens designed for APS-C DSLRs. Equipped with a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and an Optical Stabilizer (OS), the 17-50mm boasts a large fixed 2.8 aperture throughout the entire zoom range. An OS allows for easier handheld shooting while the HSM ensures quick, accurate and consistent autofocusing. FLD glass elements (with performance equal to fluorite) along with two glass mold elements and one hybrid aspherical lens provide excellent correction of aberrations and allow for incredibly sharp images with great contrast.  Super Multi-Layer coating reduces flare and ghosting while the lightweight and compact construction make it a necessary addition to any camera bag.

Charles Hardin's Cathedral Falls

17-50mm F2.8 EX DC (OS)* HSM

This week’s Fan Photo of the Week was taken by photographer Charles Hardin made with the 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM. He tells us:Cathedral Falls is located behind Living Water Ministry in Western North Carolina. Walter Arnold showed me this one April 2010 for the first time. It’s located off of highway 215, I use the highway to get to the Blue Ridge Parkway quite often. This falls is just off the road and very easy to get to. I usually stop here a couple times a year. After a trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway on Sunday June 17, I decided to stop by Cathedral. My sunrise on the Parkway didn’t happen Clouds rolled in at daybreak. But cloudy skies are great for waterfall photography. Water level was perfect, this allowed me to cross some of the water to get a little more depth. What you can’t see in the photo is there’s a falls behind me The French Broad Falls (which is a river). Cathedral by far is the most photogenic of the 2. A wide angle works best for this one but I left my Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 on my D-300s. The area has a fair amount of contrast so I used 5 shot brackets and paned for 3 brackets, total of 15 shots to make this image. I shoot in Manual Mode most of the time but for Pans I always use Aperture-Priority Mode. First shot was 1/20 of a second – .8 seconds for the 5th shot. F-10, ISO 200, focal length was 17mm. As much as I really like this shot I was a little disappointed, see I was wanting a little more sky in the shot. I always use a Polarizer, for this one I also used a ND filter to slow things down a bit.About Charles: My name is Charles K. Hardin, I live in Taylor SC, I’m married with one child (19 year old) My hobby is photography, hope someday to be able to make enough money to support new equipment for my photography. This can be an expensive hobby.I bought a SLR back in the early 80s after getting Married in 1990 I quit taking photos until 2005. I brought a 5.2mp HP point and shoot and knew right away I wanted more. My next step was a Nikon D-60. I decide I want a really good lens for a medium distance and purchased a Sigma 70-200 F2.8.What a great len. I was now hooked on Sigma lenes. I wanted to get better at photography at this point, so I went to Barnes and Noble to buy a book on exposure and they were out. While there I came across a book on HDR photography. I knew then what and how I wanted to shoot. I then came across a blog Jack Howard did with a young man named Walter Arnold on HDR photography. Walter had some contact info and I e-mailed him. Walter spent an afternoon and evening working with me and my photography show immediate improvement. Many thanks to Walter and Amanda. By this time I was shooting with a used Nikon D-200. I needed a better lens than the kit lens that came with the D-60 so I then purchased a Sigma 17-50mm. This is my len’s of choice. This is my go to len. I’m now shooting with a Nikon D-300s. I was once asked if something happen to my 17-50mm F2.8 would I but another one. I said yes. I had to replace it after dropping it back in the winter. I didn’t hesitate on purchasing a new one. Sigma make some of the best glass available at any price! I also have a Sigma 18-250 I bought to do some photos at my son Graduation last year and for a walk around len’s. This too is a Great len’s. Many thanks for such fine product. Hopefully my photography will continue to improve and I can create some very stunning work to show case what a fine product you have…Check out some of Charles’ work on Flickr, Google+ and Facebook!

Michael Keel's North to Burney Falls

17-50mm F2.8 EX DC (OS)* HSM 1/6 f/18 640

This week’s Fan Photo of the week is by Michael Keel. He tells us:I’m a 35 yr old travel writer/photographer. The main magazine I write for is WHOA (what’s happening with original artists). I have been making photos since I was 13, inspired by my grandfather. whowas in the California Camera Club and Sierra Club back in the 1930′s. Amongst my travel writing and wildlife photography projects, this photo is from my personal project loosely titled, “My Childhood – Scenes of Northern California.” That hopefully may turn into a book; that’s the plan, but who knows–money is scarce these day. I was on a particular dirt road my grandfather taught me to drive on when I was about 13/14, or actually, just turn up dirt and make dust-clouds. At about 5:30pm, as I was pulling out back onto the main road to head back to my campsite, I turned my head to the right, and saw this fantastic scene of glowing light through contrails, clouds, and faint mountain tops. I grabbed my camera and carefully stepped into the middle of Highway 89 (we are talking logging trucks traveling at about 80MPH; I had to step a few times.) I wanted to get some good depth so I set the aperture to F/18, I was also freezing, so I upped the ISO for caution of my shaky hands.I really like this shot, kind of fits the theme of the book, searching, remembering; memories go on forever. As a family, we spent many summers, 3-4 times a year up in the Lassen Volcanic National Park area. It is where I feel at home with my photography and it is a place I feel my childhood was left or existed. A lot changed through the years with our family, especially with our father being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I hope through these photos, others can relate in a similar way, and that they also serve the purpose of promoting preservation, conservation and restoration. This area means so much to me that there is not enough words or digital space to describe the feeling.Highway 89 North to Burney Falls CA. (shot taken right after the SubwayCave/Hatcreek area.) Sigma 17-50 OS lens with Polarizer, 1/6 second f/18, 640 ISO,, 34mm,handheld.Check out his Facebook Page!
