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.

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!

  • 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.

Great Value

  • Summary: After reading ALL of the reviews, I purchased the lens and have the following comments.... 1. Most of the complaints about reliability seem to come from Nikon owners. Very few from Canon owners. Interesting that so many of these Nikon comments are in the Canon review section. 2. The image quality is exactly what I would expect from a superzoom. Overall, quite acceptable. I would say overall the image quality and sharpness is about equal to the 18-55mm kit lens.

Good lens

  • Summary: It's not the best lens I have, but its just so darn useful. I had one a few years ago and sold it. Then I missed it and had to buy another one. Its hard to find a lens with this range, good construction, optical stabilizer. I wish it was f5.6 on the long end to make it a bit better in low light. But Ive been very happy with it as a general purpose lens.

Very good lens

  • Summary: I am not a specialist but I know when I see a good product. The only issue, not big, is the smoothness of the zoom ring. I am also using it for shooting video with my T2i and it works great.

Great all around lens

  • Summary: Love this lens - went from using a separate 18-55 + 55-200 Nikon VR, this lens is on par with those. I'm still figuring out the best settings but purely for a great low cost all around lens, it's the one.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy
