It's a great lens outside but indoors in was very slow and hunted allot focusing. i sent it back and ordered the sigma 18-50 f/2.8 EX DC Macro AF Zoom. I've read hundreds of reviews all over the web and the canon 17-55 2.8 is the best but if your on a low budget like me and can't afford a $1000 lens then the sigma 18-50 2.8 is the way to go. It's much faster and works better in low light than the tamron 17-50 2.8 and I've read close to a thousand reviews about the two lenses. Then I finally stopped reading and asked the pro's at Adorama and they agreed the sigma 18-50 2.8 is the way to go. If your not buying from Adorama your not only waisting your time but also your money.

Not a very good choice at all for low light

The out door pics were ok but the indoor low light pics were horrible at best every face had orange tint in them & poor low light in back/sides of the subject almost blacked out. I would never recommend this lens to anyone !

Awesome Lens

By

My main use is for family photos and events. This zoom range works well for tight shots. The F2.8 enables more indoor shots with existing light. Along with the ability to zoom in or out makes it much easier than using a fixed 30mm or 50mm prime lens. I only wish it was faster as f2.8 indoors does not blur the backgrounds as much as I would like. I also intend to do low light videos. Looking at other reviews one would think that this Sigma lens is much lighter than the Nikon 17-55mm f2.8. I was surprised by how heavy this Sigma F2.8 Zoom lens is. Much beafier than the kit Nikon lenses and feels like it will hold up well for my use. Lens feels solid and I'm not concerned nor sorry I didn't get the Nikon instead. Also the reviews show significant distortion at f2.8 and 17mm however I am satisfied with the portrait shots I've taken with a Nikon D7100. Definately recommend this lens.

Super Sharp, Very Impressed

By

Ok, I'm just going to get to the nitty-gritty. Soft at the edges at f2.8 It gets better at f4 Great at f5.6 The center is always super Sharp. I am amazed that this $xxx.xx lens is so sharp. I have a wedding to shoot with my D7000 and this is the perfect lens at the perfect price. Very compact, Image stabilization works great. If your on a budget you will not be disappointed. I have had to use my cameras ability to adjust the focus on some of my Nikon lenses. This one is spot on, no adjustment needed. GREAT LENS, GREAT PRICE

Awesome lens-great value

By

Hey, I have to admit I did not fully believe the ratings this lens got when I was researching it. But it has surprised from the moment I took it out of the box! Sharp IQ, fast focus,well built, and good bokeh! The only reason not to give it a 5 star was I don't feel the image stabilization is as spot on my my Tamron or Nikon lenses, but not bad. I can still use slower shutter speeds, but maybe one click faster than the other brands mentioned above. I use it a lot on a tripod, so I don't worry with the IS much. Headed to Nashville to get some skyline photos next week. I will try to come back and post those! If you need a good wide angle lens and money is tight- this is your lens

Tack sharp lens

Used the lens in the ghost town of Bodie, Calif. The day was off and on cloudy and the camera and lens worked great. Was able to get shots into old building window that I hadn't been able to do before. All the shots came out crystal clear. Great little lens.

nhue h  does this work well with the canon eos 5d mark 3? I notice that it is 2.8..does sigma make anything less like 1.8?
YIFU L  nope, it won't work with 5D mark 3. This lens is for crop sensor camera only. 5D is full frame. Sigma has 18-35mm f/1.8, but also only for crop sensor only. To go beyond 2.8 aperture, you need to go to prime lenses.
nhue h  can you please explain what is the different how how can I tell?

Shopper  Does this only work for crop sensor, or can it work for full frame?
RANDAL K  This is designed for a crop sensor. Like others it may "work" but it would have limited functionality as far as usability, i.e. it might take acceptable pictures at 50mm....very unlikely to be worth anything at the wide end.
