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.
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.
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...
Summary: We bought this lens for portraits and wedding photos. It worked great for the first wedding we shot, about 1300 photos, but then some of the family and senior pictures (shot a week later) were blurry in the foreground. The background was clear but the foreground was blurry.
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.
Summary: I wanted very much to like this lens. I read every review possible. This lens won awards! It is reasonably (as far as glass can be) priced. Got it on sale with instant rebate. At that point I am thinking I have scored my walkaround lens and can now live in peace.
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.
