Comments about Sigma Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG Macro Auto Focus Wide Angle Telephoto Macro Zoom Lens for Nikon AF-D.:

Great quality at low cost. Very versatile range from 28 to 300mm makes this lense well suited for travel and casual use, mitigating frequency of lense changes;...But, not for the serious photographer, noting lack of sharpness at 28mm and soft focus at 300mm. Note that lock only operates with lens fully retracted to 28mm position. Zoom ring resistance is a bit stiff.
Overall though, another great Sigma budget lens.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG Macro Auto Focus Wide Angle Telephoto Macro Zoom Lens for Nikon AF-D.:

I bought this lens for a throw in the bag and go alternative to my Nikkor f/2.8 lenses. It has a good range, acceptable focus and I love the macro focus of this. It is very compact and lightweight. The downside is that at 300mm the lens is f/6.3 - making it dark to see and the lightness of the lens make stability a bit of a problem at 300mm. I suggest a mono-pod when at the long focal lengths.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG Macro Auto Focus Wide Angle Telephoto Macro Zoom Lens for Nikon AF-D.:

This is a very nice lens at a price that is very reasonable. It is sharp and clear, focuses quickly, and is a real pleasure to use. Because of the extreme range of this telephoto lens, it is not necessary to be changing lenses as often. The macro factor is a plus! I own several other Sigma lenses and I like them all.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG Macro Auto Focus Wide Angle Telephoto Macro Zoom Lens for Nikon AF-D.:

I bought this for trekking with my camera because of its wide range. The hope was to reduce lens changes which introduce dust into the camera sensor. I like the high quality feel (not "plasticy"), and the fact that the lens achieves the wide range without being large and heavy. It doesn't quite have zoom power for birds and wildlife that my 500 zoom has, but it comes close enough, and has enough "wide" angle for some scenery shots.

A real bonus is the macro capability of this lens!

I wish it a were higher speed, but then it would be larger and much more expensive, reducing it's utility in backpacking situations, and breaking my budget.

Great lens for the money.
