Would you recomend the Sigma 18-50 2.8 lens for full body glamour shots? I saw some pictures taken with that lens a couple days ago and they were very sharp and super clear. I read some reviews about the lens and they were very favorable, just curiois if anyone uses this lens in the studio.

I've heard good things about that lens. I own the 70-200 Sigma 2.8 and a 18-125 Sigma 3.5-5.6 and both give very sharp images. The 18-125 works very well for all of my full length shots.

Here is a shot with the 18-125:

Great. the images I saw were taken by a friend of mine right next to me at the finish line at a marathon. I was blown away by the clarity. We both have the same camera too. a canon 20D. Thank's

I've found the Canon 20D to be a really great camera. I've had mine since last September. As a general rule, I shoot most of my model shots with the Sigma 70-200 2.8 because it is really super ultra shot and is rated equal with the Canon 70-200 2.8 L lens. But at 70, it is more difficult to do full length shots since you have to stand back pretty far and many studios are not bid enough. That's when I use the Sigma 18-125. It is also my walking around lens.
Cheers,
rfs
