For the cost minded person who is not a pro you can fool most people...

  • Summary: I rate this high because it's affordable and like most lenses under $500 there are often trade-offs. The price is often so remarkable for these that any negative issues are simply erased. I agree with the other reviewers before me so I'll skip repeating what's been said. When it comes to trade-offs you are sacrificing one thing or another and mostly quality (IQ).

Sigma 15-30mm f/3.5-4.5 EX Aspherical DG - Nikon

  • Summary: This review is based on sample of one in late 2010. I have been an avid photographer on film and digital, but not a pixel peeper; for the amount paid, this lens is more than I expected. Good: super-wide FX on Nikon D700. Great details on center and some corners. Color rendition is fine. Bad: Not able to get sharp results on one corner at infinity focus, doesn't matter what the setting is. Sigma quality control issues are well known, lens possibly de-centered.

  • Summary: You cannot beat the price for such a fantastic super-wide angle lense. Very little distortion for a 15 mm and wonderful sharpness. Don't buy the nikon lense, save money, buy high end sigma!

Sigma 15-30 — fantastic lens, even better value

  • Summary: I wanted a good wide-angle lens for my D200 DSLR. In film, my favorite lens was a 19-35, but that didn't cut the mustard for my wide-angle needs. And a 12-24mm lens was a bit out of my price range. So, I took a leap of faith with this in-between, and I'm quite glad I did. The focal range is quite good, and it's extremely sharp, too. It doesn't have a built-in motor, but focusing is still fast and sharp.

Sigma 15-30 is a very good value

  • Summary: I purchased the Sigma 15-30 zoom specifically for use on a digital SLR, so most of my photos will be taken in the sweet-spot in the center of the image. I prefer zooms on digital SLRs because changing lenses creates a dust problem with them, so the less you have to change them the less often you have to clean. The sensors are remarkably easy to damage, so any cleaning is a risk.

  • Summary: What more can I say..? Go and try one out, you won't be disappointed. Tom Cunningham.
  • Pros: Real solid construction and nicely set out controls. Superb image quality. Fast focusing.
  • Cons: The pull/push manual to auto focus ring. Noisy auto focus.
