Excerpt: I really just want to comment on my initial impressions after receiving this lens kit (lens, filter, cleaning kit) yesterday evening.The Tiffen filter fits great and appears to be clear enough for my tastes, but I have not had a chance to check its quality yet. It WILL allow the Sigma lens cap to still fit, although it has a thread or two less compared to what the lens itself offers for a "cap biting surface".Cleaning kit is what you would expect, cheap and barely...
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I normally use a standard fixed focal length lens and have several. But this lens changed my thinking. For the bulk of my work this lens will cover it and increases my working speed. The lens is super sharp. The images are far better than a couple of Nikon lenses I have. Sigma has done it, a great lens!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I got this for my Nikon D7000 as main lens, and it does not dissapoint. Nice autofocus speed and accuracy, tack sharp images, and fast constant aperture. Wonderful event or walk-around lens. Balances well on the D7000, the only "issue" is that the focus ring tuns the opposite way than on Nikon lenses (due to Sigma also making this one for Canon).
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I did a lot a research before buy this lens. I have only had it for a few weeks and so far I am extremely pleased. This is an awesome lens. Great for low light situation and just a great all around lens in general. I was a little surprised on it weight, but it's nothing to complain about, it's a well-built lens. I highly recommend it. The bokeh is pretty good too.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
