Slow focusing with aperture wide open

CarbonFibers, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The HSM is quiet. The optics of this lens is OK. I compared the bokeh of this lens with my Pentax DA* 50-135mm at f=2.8, the Pentax one's bokeh is significantly smoother than this Sigma. The biggest problem I had with this lens is the slow focus at 50mm when aperture is opened to 2.8.

It is not easy to zoom the lens

  • Summary: The picture it took is sharp and the focus is good. But it needs some efforts to zoom the lens. It feels like something stuck (I released the lock switch) inside. I can not do a continues zoom smoothly.

Sigma 18-200 lense

Fonda Thomas, Amazon
1 July 2012
  • Summary: I am somewhat pleased... Lens kinda slips down when focusing in and out. Like its dropping. I ordered 2 filters which were suppose to fit it and one if them was too big. Thought I was getting a 62 but sent a 72. Other than that I feel the lens is pretty good.

Used item, you get what you pay for.

  • Summary: This is an older lens and doesn't always work well with my Nikon D5100. The autofocus often gets 'confused' and goes more out of focus than in, forcing the use of manual focus. Does not fire nearly as fast as my Nikon lenses when shooting sporting events.

Only buy this if you don't plan on using it a lot

  • Summary: I used this lens for the last year or so and have taken approx. 15k images with it. Mostly portraits, but some action shots. I've noticed at first when you turn the camera on it's side to get a vertical picture, the image would "shake" in the viewfinder.

  • Summary: Good, though not specially sharo. I use as my walkaround lens but not when I need pictures to be sharp and clear. Practical at the least but not bad. Normal,not and awe inspiring lens.

It's just ok for me.

  • Summary: really looked forward to getting this lens but after having it for a little while I'm not so excited about it anymore. I have an older nikon d40 camera and was hoping getting a nicer lens would help with the pictures and give them a fresher look, until I get my upgrade camera.

O.K.

  • Summary: This lens offers a huge focal range for the money, no doubt. For what it is, it'S O.K. f 3.5-4.x is on the slow side.
