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: I was looking for a video lens that would give me a nice wide-angle to long telephoto to use on my Canon 7D without much bulk and at a reasonable price. I priced the Canon equivelant and even the used lenses (on e-bay) were a couple hundred dollars more than I wanted to pay. I have several Sigma lenses and, while they might lack some of the features of the Canon lenses, they are sharp and generally pretty durable.
Summary: I can't write a review about this lens because it didn't fit my camera. it needed an adapter. Make sure you ask questions before buying I didn't ask had to find out the hard way. there are adapters that will fit the lens.
Summary: Good lenses for the price. some aberrations but easely to correct in Lightroom. in general I found this lenses very versatile giving me the oportunity of travel light. if you have a 35 and a good zoom you'll have all you want for your SLR.
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. This is the perfect companion to my Nikon D40 for casual photographs for a casual traveller. Nearby subjects or faraway mountains, birds etc I don't need to change the lens.
Summary: This is an EXCELLENT lens and has become my "workhorse" lens. Although it may not perform optically as good as its more expensive cousins in the industry, it comes darn close and it can't be beat for price and quality as a general-purpose lens. Unless you are a seasoned pro who is meticulous about minute details and willing to drop a few thousand on professional equipment, this lens is for you.
