2x DOB latter, the third one worked great!

  • Summary: So I got one of these for my birthday form my parents and as soon as I put the lens on and turn on the camera it starts to emit this uncharitable high pitch squeal. So my first reaction was it was the IS, but I turned that off and guess what? It was still doing it.

First Impressions...

  • Summary: After doing alot of debating over what lens to get, (Sigma 17-70, 18-200, 18-250, Canon 18-135, 17-85, 18-200, some Tamron's) I finally decided on the Sigma 18-125mm OS HSM after reviewing a crap load of customer reviews on a myriad of websites.

Pretty nice compromise lens

  • Summary: If you are like me and want a bit more reach than the standard 3x kit zooms (17-50, 18-55, etc) but don't like the price, weight, or optical compromises of a superzoom (18-250) then this is a great lens. The build is really excellent for a lens of this price.

Lasted 12 months

  • Summary: This lens worked fine for the first year, but like clockwork after the 12 month warranty expired, it died. It was making a loud grinding sound when my D60 was powered on. This didn't matter whether the OS was on or off, or whether it was switched to manual focus.

  • Summary: I have had this lens for a week. It was purchased to replace the factory kit lens on my Canon T2i and am very impressed with the quality of both construction and optics. A great match for the T2i. Lots of fun!

General-Purpose

Joseph Yu, Amazon

  • Summary: The range fits most of my casual needs, and the HSM is fast and quiet. Images are sharp but there's not much in the way of bokeh (to be expected). I've been reading a lot of reviews that complain about the OS "noise", but my copy seems to make very minimal noise -- I can only hear the noise if I put...

Remarkably good

  • Summary: I was willing to pay a few hundred more for a lens that was just what I wanted. But this one had the right specs and so I jumped. Its been great so far after about 1500 pictures.

Sigma 18-125mm f/3.8-5.6 AF DC OS HSM Zoom Lens/Canon Mount

J. French, Amazon
4 April 2010
  • Summary: This lens is sweet, it gives the ability to have a "walk-around" lens that does what I need for the shots I take, which are mostly street scenes and architecture. I am glad I bought it and can recommend it to any amateur photographer looking to add to their kit.

Good

  • Summary: I'm really liking the extra reach at the long end (125mm). I bought this lens to replace my Nikon 18-55mm. I have NOT even put the Nikon lens back on my D7000 since I bought the Sigma 18-125mm. I think the lens only comes with a 1 year warranty, I believe.

Excellent Walk Around Lens

Paul M. St John, Amazon
4 April 2010
  • Summary: OK, perhaps it isn't perfect, but it is darn good, and amazing for the price. I'm a small guy who lugs around a 60D on long trips. Things get very heavy very quickly. If I had my druthers, I would carry this, my 50 mm Canon f1.4, and my Canon wide angle.
