  • Excerpt: I have several Sigma lenses that I shoot with my Pentax bodies, all of which are very good at what they are designed to do. This one? Not so much. I tried it and did not like it. Fuzzy/drifting focusing chief among my complaints.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Lens Creep

Very disappointed. It should've been clearly noted in the product ...

  • Summary: I just picked up this lens and haven't even taken it to try it out, but right out of the box I discovered one major issue. I bought this lens because it also has Optical Stabilizer (OS), but in the brochure that came with it, it says the OS does not work with Sony DSLRs. Very disappointed.

Horrible speed

  • Summary: I'm not so much of a fan of this lens on the Sony Alpha 55. It's to slow on auto mode and 95% of my pictures are blurry unless I take my time with the snaps.

Update to My Previous Review

Reinaldo, Adorama
8 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I first gave it four stars because of the versatility. I used it for images for the web and sharing sites first. It looked fine, but later when I tried to make larger prints, I found that the images were often far too soft. Also I noticed that images were often out of focus.
  • Pros: Versatile
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Lens Creep, Slow Focus

Disappointment

p, B&H Photo
18 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased this on recommendation of the sales person for use on my Cannon T3i. I wanted a lens to replace the two kit lenses so I would not have to carry and switch between them. Bottom line, a disappointment. I returned it.
  • Cons: Falsely Calibrated Zoom, Poor in Low Light, Stiff Binding Zoom

  • Summary: UPDATE #5: DECIDED TO SEE IF ORDERING FROM THE SELLER (47TH STREET PHOTO) THAT DOES NOT HAVE AMAZON FULFILLMENT AND FINALLY RECEIVED THE CORRECT LENS. GOTTA SAY THE OS WORKS WELL AND IT'S A BETTER LENS OVERALL THAN THE NEWER "MACRO" VERSION.
