I was just offered a couple of lenses that I've borrowed from a friend on occation. One is a Sigma 28-70 f2.8 and the other is a Tokina super wide 12-24 f4.0. I've used both and they worked great! I've been offered both lenses for $400. I believe each of these lenses is worth what he is asking for the pair.

Any thoughts?????

i like the sigma lens not so crazy about the f4 on the other one. But the 28-70 now thats a good lens f2.8. but with that said 400.00 2 lenses. Not a bad deal Nate
Ps you should save your money up and buy a NIKON :) I know your thinkin Ya Right...

I have heard better things about Sigma than I have Tokina. Sony has a website I go to-to check lenses, reviews, pricing, picture quality etc. You can probably check the lenses there. Even though you shoot Canon - the lenses are probably manufactured the same. (just guessing)

I think it all depends on what type of shooting you would do with these lenses. Will they have a specific purpose? What would you hope to get out of these lenses? I do think that is a good price for two lenses. You could always buy and try them out longer. If you decide you do not like them, you could sell them and get your money back (or more money back). I would also do more research on the lenses - reviews, issues, etc.

Thanks everyone, I'm having him give them to me to try for a little while so I can decide whether to buy them or not. The sigma will complement my sigma 70-200 f2.8 which is my favorite lens for indoor sports (basketball and volleyball)! I also read some pretty good stuff about the Tokina as well, they now offer a 11-16 f2.8, but many seem to still prefer the 12-24 f4.0.

Thanks again and if you hear any other +/- 's about either of these, please let me know!
