Sigma 24-105mm f/4 as a Travel Lens – A Review

On this video review photographer Toby Gelston takes a look at the (relatively) recent Sigma 24-105mm f/4 lens as a travel lens.

Gelston had a trip to Italy. Instead of taking his Canon 24-70mm and his Canon 70-200mm he decided to rent one lens that he can use all through the trip as a high-end “do it all” type of lens and he choose the Sigma 24-105mm f/4 with the built in image stabilization.

Below you can see a quick head to head comparison of the Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG (OS) HSM vs. the old Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM


In the past we published here a comparison between two “walking around lenses” – the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 and the Canon 24-105 f/4 also done by  Tony and Chelsea Northrup.

The Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG (OS) HSM cost just under $900 (on Amazon).
