Meet Expectation

Johnny, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: Actually is not a bad lens for the price. I consider it my all around lens for traveling (one lens vs one wide, one mid and one tele). Excellent performance in the day light but not so good on low light. This lens is little bit slow.

Will not work with Nikon D5300

Arnaud, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: For your information, it will NOT be (fully) compatible with the Nikon D5300, due to glitch in the lens firmware. If you want to use it, you will have to ship it to Sigma USA to have updated. If you use it with a Nikon D5000, 5100, or 5200, no problem

Decent lens but beware the limited warranty

R. E. York, Amazon
16 January 2012
  • 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.

Good pics but poor design

K. Bhatia, Amazon
31 August 2011
  • Summary: I took great pics with tis lens with my Nikon D90. However, there is significant issue with accidental handling of zoom ring. There are two rings and it is very easy to turn one over other. Advise to rather go for the 18-250mm sigma lense.

Good for price while it lasted

india jackson, Amazon

  • Summary: Not as sharp as my Nikon lenses leaving me sharpening every shot in post production a bit more than usual. OS doesn't work as well as Nikon's VR feature but I didn't really need it for studio fashion and entertainment work. As a student on a tight budget I could only afford one lens.

Great walk around lens

  • Summary: Great zoom capabilities. Little sluggish auto focusing and has problems auto focusing at 200mm. The Optic Stabilization is noisy as well. It does get the job done!

Practical...but image quality is disappointing.

Steven Dunski, Amazon
12 June 2009
  • Summary: This lens is very practical given its range. It's a perfect match to the entry level D40/60 with its built in focusing motor. If you are looking to upgrade from your 18-55 kit lens or want to replace your 18-55 and 55-200 with one lens then this is a great option.

Very Disappointed

Matthew J. Siegelbaum, Amazon
9 February 2009
  • Summary: I read review after review, did my research and was very excited to receive my Sigma 18-200 in the mail, but was very disappointed in the overall crispness of the images I took with my Canon EOS 40D. The lens feels solid and well made. I love the fact it has OS and a barrel lock.
