Mega zoom lenses are a bad idea.

  • Summary: Here is the problem with mega zoom lenses. You will NEVER get a sharp image out of it. plus you need a ton of light to even use the thing. Do yourself a favor, get smaller range lenses. 70-200 and 24-70 if you need something wider then get that too. Do not buy.

Description should say it is not for full frame DSLR's

GregR, Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Well, I just ordered this lens today from Amazon.com, based on the reviews here it sounded like a good lens for a decent price. The description of the lens sounds great. The problem is, the description of the lens on Amazon.com does not indicate that it is not for full-frame FX format cameras. The lens will work on an FX camera but it will leave a large black circle around the border of images at all focal lengths. Worse at short focal lengths.

Very stiff zoom control

  • Summary: Had to send it back, very stiff zoom control then purchased the Nikon 18-200 VR superzoom - operationally and optically much better.

Sigma a spent force?

William Mills, Amazon
2 November 2013
  • Summary: I purchased a Sigma 18-200 zoom lens and after a week of testing and comparisons I sent it back. Fortunately Amazon has a swift no quibble returns policy. Sigma's lens failed because the images were soft and focusing problematic. The lens also started to rattle. Bearing in mind all the negative reviews and videos detailing breakdowns and repair delays I decided to get my money back before Amazon's thirty days were up.

Cheap; but thier is a reason...

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I am a amateur and new to DLSR's however I bought this for My Nikon after reading numerous mixed reviews all over the internet. At £280 it was worth a look; considering the Nikon equivalent is £700! The recommendations suggest this takes a 72mm filter - it doesn't, its the newer 62mm version.

Nicht empfehlenswert

Kunde, Amazon
1 March 2013
  • Summary: Habe mir das Sigma 18-200mm II DC OS HSM vor 7 Monaten gekauft und war damit durchweg zufrieden. Auf die geringe Lichtstärke lässt man sich bewusst ein und von den teilweise dramitsch beschriebenen Verzeichnungen habe ich nichts bemerkt - zumindest nicht so negativ wie es manchmal beschrieben wird. Leider ist bei meinem letzten Gebrauch des Objektivs von einer Sekunde auf die nächste irgendetwas mechanisches im Objektiv selbst kaputt gegangen.

Poco nítido

Juancarlos Gonzalez, amazon.es
17 August 2012
  • Summary: Sabiendo que esta tipo de focales no ofrecen mucha calidad, me decidí por este objetivo después de leer alguna review en que lo puntuaban muy bien y destacaban su nitidez precisamente. La construcción se ve muy buena y sólida, pero una vez lo probé me di cuenta de que para conseguir algo decente hay que cerrar mucho el diafragma y si ya partimos de que es muy poco luminoso se me volvía casi inutilizable en la mayoría de situaciones. He tenido que devolverlo.

Manuelles Scharfstellen nicht akzeptabel

Hardy3, Amazon
19 June 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe das Objektiv für eine Canon EOS 600D als Alround-Zoom für meine Tochter gekauft. Ich selbst habe auch die Canon EOS 600D u.a. mit dem Tamron 18-270mm F/3,5-6,3 Di II VC PZD. Aufgrund der besseren Testergebnisse hatte ich mich für das Sigma entschieden. Da die meisten Obejektive von Fremdanbietern größere Schwierigkeiten mit dem Scharfstellen bei Dunkelheit oder kritischen Lichtverhältnissen haben, kommt dem manuellen Einstellen der Entfernung eine wichtige...
