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.
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.
Summary: amazing all in one traveler's lens. I bought this lens to use as a one stop shop for international travel and works perfectly, great value for money. only Cons i have are that it is a bit heavy (but in the realm of SLR lenses can't complain) and that on safari you can't quite get there for the far...
Excerpt: I've been using a tamron 18-270 for a while and had some problems with slow focus and blurry images. Traded for this and I'm pleased so far. It produces sharper images and the reach is great. Focus is a little slow compared to my canon ultrassonic, but is faster then the tamron.
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.
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...
Great fit for Nikon D40 with seldom focus glitches

Summary: I had a Nikon D40 with the standard 15-55mm lens. Felt the need for a lens with a higher optical zoom. Nikon lenses are more expensive and because I am not a professional photographer I bought the Sigma lens. Since then I haven't attached the standard 15-55mm Nikon lens.
Summary: I got this lens a few weeks ago, and I love it so far. I haven't gotten a whole lot of chances to use it, but when I have it's been awesome. I know I dont have very high standards, I got this lens and I have a D3000, not like a 24-70 F/2.8 on a D3s or anything like that.
Summary: A great general purpose lens - as good as the Nikkor equivalent for a fair amount cheaper. This is my third lens for my Nikon D80, but before I bought it I was using a Nikkor 18-200 lens (on loan).
