The Landscape, Sigma Zoom AF 21-35mm F3.5-4.2

 'Five frames with the EF-mount Sigma Zoom AF 21-35mm F3.5-4.2, Part II'

Continuing from where I left off with Part I of my first outing with the EF-mount Sigma Zoom AF 21-35mm F3.5-4.2, a lens highly acknowledged for its image quality and sharpness.

These images were from the same hazy early morning visit to the park, looking more at the overall landscape rather than the zoom range views.

To some extent, I do have to agree that the lens is capable of capturing and rendering the images as mentioned and commented on in the forum, while I do believe that I may have a bit more to learn about handling such a versatile lens.

The Sigma Zoom AF 21-35mm F3.5-4.2, launched by Sigma in 1985, was a carryover from the highly acknowledged and revolutionary MF version which was first introduced in 1979. Back then, no one was quite sure if such a lens was possible until Sigma proved otherwise.

The AF version, which came with a 77mm front end, is much bigger than the original 67mm, is still with its built-in floral hood and has only a single ring for the zoom control, with the aperture opening linked to the cameras AE mechanism. The lens is all metal and glass, made to last, and comes in at a hefty 480 grams in weight.

Mounted on the Canon EOS 700QD, the camera is a bit of a tight fit into the compartment my green khaki triangular camera bag. With the divider moved to accept its larger size, the opposite side is a much smaller space, just big enough for me to slit in a 35mm compact, part of my routine of always having a couple cameras in the bag.
