Excerpt: Pictures are incredibly crisp, Lens is efficient and it eliminates the need for constant Lens changes. I am a novice so I will not use all the lingo I read in all of these reviews. Plain and simple, the lens does not have to be changed all the time and the picture quality is so clear that cropping photos later on provide better pictures than a telephoto lens could take.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: For the price this lens is a good value. I wanted enough range and wide angle both to use as a walk-around lens. This lens removes the hassle of making a lens change when I need more reach for a far away subject, or a wider angle without having to back away.There is a much appreciated locking switch to eliminate lens creep too.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: HSM are quiet and fast on my K-3 body; a great lens when compared to similar offerings elsewhere. Aperture of f2.8 was indeed quick, but not quick enough, but please don't blame Sigma! My tastes are begining to lean toward the prime lens. I had to think long and hard about keeping this gem. I ended up using B and H's gracious policy to return, so I can fund pricier primes. Based upon Sigma build quality and price?
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: This lens is very versatile for the price point.Less expensive doesn't mean its not a quality product. This lens has limitation on the sharpness as well as distortion, overall I like the value for the price. The center of the photography is very sharp, however when you start enlarging or zooming in you tend to loose some detail/blown pixels, etc. If you expect a Nikon quality lens you will need to buy the real thing.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
