Excerpt: I'd been looking for a go-to lens that I could use for times when I didn't want to carry around my whole lens collection. This is it! It's versatile enough to take wide shots, and close up macro shots. I have so far been impressed with the range and quality of the images.
Excerpt: I bought this for my mom along with a beginner's crop sensor DSLR and she is IN LOVE with it. We traveled to Italy and I packed "light" because I had a lot of heavy pro equipment with me, and I found myself borrowing her camera so I could use this lens any time I wanted to zoom in.
Excerpt: this lens replaced an 18-105 which replaced the 18-55 that came on e camera. This zoom length is what i wanted all along. Racked in it is no bigger than the lesser zoom range. While i have not used it for nature shots yet, it does great protair closeups of grandchildren without acutally being in...
Summary: The lens is wonderful. I'm quite sure it will be my main lens 90% of the time I was looking for a decent lens that I could use both indoors and out without the need to swap between multiple lenses. The Sigma lens takes some great photos and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Excerpt: After a thorough field experience with the lens on my Nikon D5300, I decided to try out it's near Macro capabilities on a 26mm commemorative coin I had on hand. Using a tripod and with the lens set at 155mm, I took the attached image. I'm very pleased with this lens.
Excerpt: Like this Lens. I bought this lens for camp and bnackpacking trips where I don't wan't to bring multiple lenses to go from landscapes to animal life. After 2 trips the lens has held up just fine. I have taken it caneoning in the swamp and out to the beach. In eithe case never had a problem.
Excerpt: This lens was purchased to replace the two kit lenses on my Nikon D5300. I was ready to accept some compromises for convenience, but I am very satisfied with the lens. The lightweight composite body looks and feels high tech, and the lens system seems a perfect match for my camera in most...
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: I got this as a gift and I am thrilled with it. The lens is perfect for my needs, I no longer have to change lenses all the time and it gives me a little more reach than the kit lenses that came with my Nikon D3300. It is every bit as sharp thru the entire range and the Macro is a bonus.
