All-In-One Traveler's Lens

Run With Them Or Fear Them, Amazon
11 July 2014
  • 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 away shots..

Great All-rounder

  • 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. Liked the new design very much. I just think the OS is worse then tamrons. But I'm happy with my trade so far.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

I liked it!

  • Excerpt: Very practical for travel, children and, in my case (I have two wide angles), using it as telephoto.<br /><br />The lens is very well built, but the focus ring is a little loose. Sharpness is pretty good if you stop down, but wide open could be better.<br /><br />See below two images (@100%): i) center (@200mm) and ii) extreme corner (@200mm).
  • Pros: Sharp From F8 On, Useful Macro Capability, Useful Range 18-200mm, Well built
  • Cons: Slow lens, soft wide open

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.

Definitely What I Was Expecting!

  • Summary: I'm writing this review to hopefully be helpful to those lens-shopping because I know that the reviews are what I looked at the most. This is a great lens so far! I got it today, so this is the initial review. I'll update later on to add more comments! I have a Nikon D3100. - The build is great! A metal mount makes it feel so sturdy. I had read that some lenses of equal size that had plastic mounts, had just snapped and fallen off the body.

Very pleased indeed, after having some doubts after reading reviews.

  • Summary: I agonized over the decision about whether to buy the Sigma AF 18-200 DC OS. The on-line sites (such as dp) showed softness at the edges, particularly with the f-stop wide open. There were criticisms about the focus ring being easy to confuse with the zoom ring. There were complaints that the optical stabilization isn't state of the art.

Good "Starter" Lens

V. J. Han, Amazon
3 September 2011
  • Summary: After taking long and hard look on Nikon D5000 and its "kit lens" 18-55mm zoom lens, I was convinced that I needed something more powerful to have it on as daily lens and avoiding having to swab out lens frequently, or worse, in between crucial moments when you should be busy composing and taking shots of objects from multiple distance.

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..
