Default Sigma Wide-Angle Zooms for Canon D-60?

Sigma Wide-Angle Zooms for Canon D-60?:

I’m in the market for one of two Sigma wide-angle zoom lenses for EOS cameras: - 15-30mm f/3.5-4.5 (or) 17-35mm f/2.8-4.0. How does Sigma rate here? I’m interested in user comments, general pros and cons and related stuff.

Re - the Sigma 15-30mm: - what is a “rear gelatin filter slot”…and how does this work? I invariably attach a UV protective filter and circular polarizer to my other lenses. What adjustments would be necessary for the 15-30mm? Finally, what is “two-touch zoom/focus”?

Thanks in advance…

I purchased the 17mm-35mm. Had it for 2 days and did some initial shooting in studio w/ tripod, different f stops.

Unfortunately, the lens is sub standard. The right side of the format is very noticeably soft, especially wide open. Despite its attractive price, I did not think it is usable professionally. I sent it back.
