disappointing results at long distances

traveling queen, Amazon

  • Summary: I thought this would make a great multipurpose lens for traveling, but I have to say after seeing my travel photos, I'm super disappointed. Shooting birds at long range and just generally everything at long range, it seems blurred. When using a tripod, it gets better, but too much distortion to blow up landscapes where you want clarity. Photos in the less than 100 mm range turned out really good.

Two things you need to know about this lens

  • Summary: I wish I had known more about the OS (optical stabilizer) feature of the lens before I purchased, tested, and returned it for a full refund minus some delivery costs. The lens overall takes excellent photos. The problem is with its vibration reduction feature which is called OS on this lens. Here is how it works and why it did not work for me as a shooter of events and weddings.

good value for money

  • Summary: I got this lens a few days ago, its works fine for me coz i am a mostly an events photographer, I use it with a canon 60D. Pros: -dont have to interchange lenses to get wide angle and close up shot -it is very light and so easy to run around with -it comes with a 62mm lens hood which helps reduce lens flare -nicely marked with approximate distances when shooting in macro mode -has a lens lock at 18mm which doubles up as a macro setting and as a safety feature while...

Its a good travel lens

  • Summary: I had previously written a bad review, which I think I need to amend. This is actually a good versatile travel lens. The main problem is with its aperture and so when it gets dark you may have to boost the ISO significantly.

  • Summary: my review is so so.. picture quality is not very impressive when you zoom the lens. at 200, its very blur and not satisfactory. at low zoom it is good. I would go for nikon lens by paying more money to get the good quality photo.

Not a bad lens, but I am disappointed.

M. Mann, Amazon

  • Summary: I have no brand loyalty so after spending many hours debating and comparing the sigma 17-70, nikon 16-85, and the tamron 18-50 2.8 I settled on this one due to the features and my past experience with some great sigma lenses. After selling my 18-55 kit lens from my old d5000, I wanted a good all around lens for my d7000. I am comparing it to my $200 35mm prime, a 10-20mm sigma HSM, and the 18-55 kit vr lens.

Good lens but there are better alternatives

  • Summary: I was hoping to replace my Tamron 28-75mm with this for the wider focal length and OS. However, it's quite soft at 70mm. The Tamron is sharper across all focal length and aperture. This is still a great lens and a good upgrade to any kit lens. The OS works really well and focus is fast and accurate. You do have to step down to f5.6 to get good image quality.

Sigma and Canon -Bad Combo

J. Capobianco, Amazon
25 November 2009
  • Summary: In 25 years of using many cameras and lenses it always seems that Sigma and Canon have issues when paired together, this lens is no exception. The Sigma electronics on this and the 18-125mm DC have problems focusing accurately at most focal lengths on Canon bodies. Especially at 18mm forget even trying, instead you must zoom first and then zoom back out.
