Rock Solid

  • Excerpt: I am 88 and not able to hold as steadily my camera. This lens has eliminated that problem especially since I cannot lug around an elderly heavy tripod etc. It has been a wonderful acquisition!

Good value

Jim, B&H Photo
11 February 2015
  • Excerpt: Just purchased this lens (2/10/2015) for my D7000. I'm going to Mexico in May for vacation and wanted a good all around walk about lens to replace my kit 18-55 and 55-200MM and basically lighten my bag a bit. After playing with it just taking a few shots in house I like it. It focuses fast in strong light and relatively fast in lower light situations.
  • Pros: Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Great Travel Lens

Ed, B&H Photo
9 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I am using this lens on my Canon T3i. I purchased this for range and weight. Now for usage, Review the exposure triangle and use the manual mode. Most Sigma lens have a sweet spot around F8, so set the aperture to F8, Shutter speed to 1/500 and the ISO to auto. Other settings to remember are, white balance, picture style, and Focus (I use AI-FOCUS). When taking a photo remember to check the exposure level indicator you might have tweak the shutter speed.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Powerful lens with diversity of uses

Student Sandler, B&H Photo
1 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I'm a sophomore at the Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State. I'm using this lens for everything, all media that might accompany my stories. Obviously close-ups and portraits come out beautifully, but this is the most powerful lens you can use before you need a tripod. It is a little heavier than the kits lens, which can make framing difficult, but you get familiar very quickly. This lens is an all-around.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Versatile
  • Cons: Heavy

good walk around lens

Genaro Goyzueta Jr., Amazon
16 December 2014
  • Summary: good walk around lens, excellent reach but light is compromised, switched it for the 17-50mm f/2.8 OS, now the wife uses it for when we travel, does not distort like the Nikons of the same family, have not noted any chromatic aberration, fringing, vignetting, etc... it is a very good product, you'll be happy as I was with it...

Couldn't be happier!

Jeff S. Christensen, Amazon
31 October 2014
  • Summary: I think this is the perfect travel lens. Who really wants to switch lenses over and over on a vacation cruise or European street? I've always thought it was a pain, especially when in a group of none enthusiasts. I have found its really nice for traveling in National and State Parks, where wildlife can show up unexpectedly at different ranges. I really couldn't be happier. I upgraded from a Tamron AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF) (Model A14E).

soooo useful, love this lens

  • Summary: soooo useful, love this lens, it's my favorite for trips, it might not be very sharp but it does the work considering the range. It is a bit heavy.
