Showing 1-10 of 153
Great sharp optics and color rendition.
22 July 2015
Summary: I shoot it a lot and its got great contrast and sharpness. If your leaning out of a helicopter you have to be wary of the 'zoom creep' (shots made on sharp incline or decline) and just 'touch' the zoom when its where you want it.
A good Brand replacement if you cannot afford nikon

Summary: Small, Light and does the work perfectly. Bought this for my brother who is a professional photographer and he is really happy with it. Took few pics and sent it to me and they were just awesome. No doubt he is professional but the lens did play a good role to assist him.
Summary: it is what it says. I just needed a lens. this isn't anything special but has a great zoom. works great with my Nikon D50. Make sure you have a focus motor in your camera or this won't work with it.
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).
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.
