Summary: I found this lens to be very quick, accurate and nearly silent in focusing. The color quality was excellent with no fringing or color distortion. The stabilization was very accurate and the image sharp and stable even though there has been conditions where the camera was not able to stay steady. I have had absolutely no problems with this lens. I can recommend this lens to anyone looking for a lens in this range wholeheartedly.
Summary: I am impressed with this lens so far. I have been doing testing with it and the shots that have been taken with it have been excellent! I have never been disappointed with Sigma lenses and this one is a good one to have with you. The AF is also very quiet and that helps if you are shooting macro subjects like bees, butterflies or dragonflies!
Summary: I have purchased this lens for Sigma mount. It is sharp and have no focus issue on my SD15 body. I love the quality of bokeh it produces even at f4. I shot some close up of flowers and that turned out nice. Nothing much to say about downside of this lens. I would recommend this lens to anybody who loved to shoot in shallow DOF and close up shots.
Summary: I am becoming annoyed with this form Amazon is sending me, soliciting comments. I will write a review after I have used this lens for a year or more. It is nice out of the box, but the proof of the pudding...and all that, you know?
Summary: This has become my favorite prime lens. It's fast and very sharp, and is a superb macro lens. I highly recommend it. It's a perfect match with the Nikon D800E, the combination of great optics with the quality of the Nikon body.
The PERFECT non-Canon Macro Lens for an aspiring photog!

Summary: About me: - I'm about 2 years into building my photography kit - I've spent hours and hours watching Adorama videos and the like on YouTube in an effort to improve my skills - I've purchased the Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 OS lens and simply love it - Delving into the Macro arena About the lens: + it does everything I expected it to do and more; the capabilities of this lens exceed my own limitations..
Summary: I read all the reviews on macro lenses. I wanted one that would allow me to take great pictures of bugs, etc. This lens didn't disappoint! It is rather heavy, but feels well made. I don't want to pay good money for a lens that feels like plastic. I use this lens on my Nikon D5100 and it auto focuses quickly and quietly.
Summary: I'm really really impressed with the overall performance of this lens. It's got solid construction and a nice finish and aesthetics. Pros: - Awesome image quality - Good build - Value for money - Good design, aesthetics and material Cons: - The AF speed tends to be a bit slower (compared to the equivalent Nikon lens). However, when you take in to consideration the price difference, you really can't complain.
Love the lens - 5 Stars. Amazon packing was lacking - 3 Stars!

Summary: The lens is great. Love the detail, etc. And using the OIS on the lens is kinda a nice option for a Sony A77. But, the box that the lens came in from Amazon was lacking packing materials. The Sigma box was on the bottom of the Amazon box with no packing peanuts, air bags or whatnot and it was able to slide around inside the Amazon box.
