Comparing the jpeg samples above, you will not notice must differences in quality but the Sigma does give it a little more sharpness to it compare the Canon. But in all honestly the Canon is a decent camera for use for blogging or YouTube videos and even professional work as well. If you are not into prints but just need something for filming to be shown on the projection screen I do not think customers can see much of the differences in sharpness.

The only reason why I upgraded to the Sigma was because I needed to zoom with a 1.8 aperture in most cases that was one of the major reason for the upgrade.
