Sigma’s DG lenses are designed for cameras with a full-frame sensor, but cameras with a cropped sensor can also take these lenses. These are large-aperture lenses with wide angles and short minimum focusing distances. With an abundance of peripheral illumination, they are ideal lenses for Digital SLR Cameras whilst retaining suitability for traditional 35mm SLRs.
HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor)
This lens uses a motor driven by ultrasonic waves to provide a quiet, high speed AF.
The exterior of this lens is EX-finished to denote the superior build and optical quality, and to enhance its appearance.
IF (Inner Focus)
To ensure stability in focusing, this lens moves the inner lens group or groups without changing the lens' physical length.

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 IF EX DG HSM - Sony Fit:
Great lens really, considering the Sony version costs double and the Tamron is around £800. It's built like a tank, really solid but incredibly heavy. From f4 onwards it takes sharp shots across most of the frame, f2.8 is quite soft at the edges, but that's to be expect. Overall it's a great lens. Why get the Sony version?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
