Pleasantly surprised

I got this lens because I wanted something inexpensive to shoot from cheap seats at baseball games - cheap enough seats that the 55-200VR doesn't cut it - and am pleasantly surprised. For the price I wasn't expecting much, but it's sharper wide open than the 55-200VR (which compensates for the lack of VR) and Ive been getting quite good image quality. It doubles as a serviceable macro lens and I've been shooting spring flowers with it and my D90. Also, don't confuse Sigma's DG and DC lenses. ...

I got this lens because I wanted something inexpensive to shoot from cheap seats at baseball games - cheap enough seats that the 55-200VR doesn't cut it - and am pleasantly surprised. For the price I wasn't expecting much, but it's sharper wide open than the 55-200VR (which compensates for the lack of VR) and Ive been getting quite good image quality. It doubles as a serviceable macro lens and I've been shooting spring flowers with it and my D90. Also, don't confuse Sigma's DG and DC lenses. DC are for DX digital only (like Nikon DX lenses) but this is a DG lens, which is like a Nikon FX lens. I can use it with my F75 and shoot film. Downsides are size/weight - being an FX lens this is beastlier than a DX lens - and it does creep if it's dangling vertically from a neck strap. Also, of course, it's not as fast or sharp as an expensive lens. There's an APO version of this lens which is a bit more expensive and optically a bit better.

Good lens, great price.

By

from SW Ohio  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I do mostly nature photography. This lens along side similar lenses performs well and the price is well below what I have paid for my Nikkor lenses. It is light, quick and appears to be sharp on the computer screen. I have not made any large prints yet.

Really good lens for its price.

By

from Pinon Hills, CA  -  Photography Student

I mainly use this to shoot local birds and small critters with the use of the macro/telephoto function. This lens is very sharp. It's actually sharper than my kit 18-55mm lens that came on my D3100. The lens is a little soft at 4-5.6, but gets really sharp at f8. The lens has some weight to it and it feels pretty solid. The macro function works between 200-300mm and still produces sharp results! I am extremely happy with this lens. So sharpness, contrast, and its macro function are all positive. It's a very good lens. Now, the only thing that I am not too fond of is the focusing time. If you're using auto focus, the motor takes awhile to focus, but it gets the job done. The motor itself is a little loud. Other than that, it's a really good lens for its price and I highly recommend it to others looking for a great telephoto/macro lens at a bargain price.

Excellent lens

By

from Tucson, AZ  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is the second of this particular lens I have purchased, and for the price it is certainly worth it. After I dropped my lens, I had considered several others that were considerably more expensive and faster, but after careful consideration I chose to got with this lens, considering all the great photos I got with my previous lens. The optics are good throughout the range, and the close focusing capabilities are one of the major reasons I love this lens. I do confess, the major drawback is the noise, and it is not particularly fast, but for shooting from a distance it should not present a problem.

Don't judge this lense by the price.

By

from cleveland,Tn  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is fantastic value for an entry level zoom lens. I use it on my Nikon D3100. Yes, the auto focus is a little slow, and it is a bit noisy however I can not be happier with this purchase. I wanted a telephoto lense, since I only have the 18-55mm kit lens the D3100 came with. After reading review after review, I pulled the trigger on this one, and happy that I did.

Pretty Good For a 'Cheap' Lens.

By

from Daly City, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This Sigma lens is well built and feel solid. I am impressed by its quality considering the price I paid for it. The auto-focus is noisy and slow, but it gets the job done. Macro is down to 1:2 @300mm, very useful for taking macro pix of flowers, gritters and pets. You have a 3+ feet working distance. With the 9-blade diaphragm aperture construction, it makes a fine portrait lens with pleasing Bokeh. However, I would not recommend it for Sports or Hyperactive kids.

Great zoom telephoto lens for the money

By

from Plymouth,MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Using this lens all the time with the 18-55mm one. Takes great photos and the price is affordable. Although, it doesn't come with VR.
