Sharpness and focus problems

Russ, Amazon
28 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this lens based on a Popular Photography test and a recent Sigma purchase. I'm very satisfied with the 50~150mm, but I returned this lens. I wanted to like it, but I continued to have focus problems and unsharp images. The lens seemed to want to focus to infinity at anything beyond a few feet. Many times it went beyond infinity resulting in nothing being in focus. The final straw was a series of outdoor photos at f/8 where the lens failed continuiously.

Mine has a focus problem.

  • Summary: Maybe I just got a lemon. I worked with this lens for the first time today and I noticed that it is focused at infinity when the outer scale reads 3 ft. And when I turn the focus ring to the infinity mark - at the line, the focus starts to go out. Going beyond this mark it goes further out of focus.

  • Summary: Had to send the lens back. Had problems with focus, I never got to the point I wanted to focus, focused always a cm or meters ahead. I was really disappointed.

Worst Lens I've Ever Bought

Tim Kidner "Hucklebrook Hound", Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: This was always cited as being a better lens than its slower f4-5.6 sibling and with a correspondingly higher price tag, so it should. Therefore with much eagerness to get some true ultrawide-angle 'punch' into my D7000 photos, I was so disappointed when anything taken wider than f6.3 just looks slightly out of focus, stopped down further images still requires loads of Photoshop extra sharpening, which ups the image noise and loses colour saturation.

Bei 10mm nicht brauchbar

Max Bachmann, Amazon
24 May 2014
  • Summary: Mein derzeitiges Standardobjektiv ist das Nikkor 16-85, Kamera ist eine Nikon 7000. Hab mir das Objektiv wegen der 10mm gekauft. Bei 10mm ist das Objektiv für mich nicht brauchbar, erst ab Blende 7,1 ist die Schärfe so, dass das Bild für mich akzeptabel ist. Vignettierung ist kein Problem. Jedenfalls hab ich das Objektiv zurückgeschickt.

Sigma 10-20 mm F3,5 EX DC ungeignet fuer Nikon D7000

TPK, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: Zwei dieser von mir an der Nikon D7000 getesten Sigma WW-Objektive, weisen starke Unschärfe und Fehlfokussierung im Kontrast-Autofokus (durch den Sucher) und bei allen Blenden-Einstellungen und verschiedenen Motiventfernungen auf. Das Objektiv funktioniert mit dem Kontrast-Autofokus an meiner Kamera definitiv nicht (im Gegensatz zu meinen Nikkor Objektiven).

Leider nicht brauchbar

Dirk, Amazon
4 September 2011
  • Summary: Ich hatte mich für das 3,5 10-20 aufgrund der vielen positiven Bewertungen in Zeitschruften und Foren entschieden. Entsprechend enttäuscht war ich, als mein Exemplar an meinen Nikon D90 und D200 nicht zuverlässig scharfstellen wollte. Der Autofokus braucht sehr lange und ruckelt bedenklich hin und her, bis er sich dann für eine vermeintlich korrekte Fokussierung entscheidet.

Leider unscharf!!

Oliver, Amazon
22 August 2010
  • Summary: Habe mir dieses Objektiv als Ergänzung zu meiner Festbrennweite 35mm und einem Telezoom 70-300mm an einer Nikon D5000 gekauft. Leider zeigte das erste Exemplar über den ganzen und das zweite (nach Rücksendung) über den linken Bildbereich eine deutliche Unschärfe. Offensichtlich ist die oft zitierte Fehlerhaftigkeit der Sigma-Objektive eine Tatsache; zumindest nach meiner Erfahrung.
