A handy all round lens for usual domestic photography. Nice quality build

  • Summary: A handy all round lens for usual domestic photography. Nice quality build. At long zoom, hood gets in way of buit-in camera flash and focus light. Zoom squeaks a bit too much for video recording. Overall good lens for outdoor stills, portraits and landscapes.

A very good overall lens.

  • Summary: I bought it in 2nd hand, for my Pentax, so it was cheap, and because Pentax has image stabilizator in the body this lens serves me well. The image quality is very good for this tipe of lens, i also have the Tamron 28-200mm f 3.8-5.6 so i was abble to compare them bouth, and The Sigma is way better than the Tamron model. The cons about this lens is that it is a bit heavy.

  • Summary: I bought this lens to use as a regular lens on my nikon D3100. I was a little hesitant as first as a few of my friends as well as some online reviews leaned towards the nikon lens. My photographer friends told me to stick to "original stuff" to get the best experience out of my camera. Let me tell you that i am an amateur photographer and needed this lens for my upcoming vacation trip.

  • Summary: Love this lens! Has great range for all subjects. Perfect for kids and all the activities they do. OS helps back you up for those low light situations even though it is quite a bit heavier than the non OS version.

An excellent go around lens.

  • Summary: I bought it used in almost new condition. I needed a go around lens to take with me on a 2 weeks trip to Europe. I shoot with Sigma SD14 DSLR and own 6 different lenses by Sigma to go with it. This one easily replaces 3 of them. So I don't have to carry extra weight. The picture quality I get from it is better than I expected, as a matter of fact on par with my Sigma prime lenses. It has optical stabilisation which is very handy in low light.

Decent lens but beware the limited warranty

  • Summary: I concur with most of the positive reviews regarding the quality for the price. Its a great purchase for the starter enthusiast looking to take quality pictures with just one lens. Yes, its big and a little heavy. If you are going on a long walk with the camera around your neck, you may want to consider a camera bag or just physically holding the lens to alleviate the awkward pressure.

Tough & still takes great shots!

  • Summary: I do amature rodeo photography & purchased this exact lens last year about this time. Since that time I've taken over 8000 photos & for the most part they're all great (some blurry due to operator error!)! I recently purchased a new camera, but am keeping my old camera as a back up so decided to put the old lens with the old camera & I'm purchasing a new one for my new camera. These lens are tough...mine gets banged around quite a bit..

4 1/2 Stars -- A Highly Versatile, High Quality Zoom Lens!

bobbewig, Amazon
13 May 2011
  • Summary: This relatively lightweight lens with a built-in optical stabilizer is top-notch in delivering high quality images with little-to-no distortion throughout its 18-200mm (really 28-320mm for my Canon EOS Rebel T1i DSLR)) focal lenths when taking outdoor shots. Indoors, images are also sharp but autofocusing is somewhat slow in low light conditions. However, this limitation can be mostly overcome by setting the camera to manual and auto focus.
