Good quality, slow focusing

  • Excerpt: This is a good lens with crisp focus through its range but the focus is a bit slow! Great for stationary objects but too slow for action photographs. It is definitely one of the quietest focusing lenses I have ever owned though!

Good replacement for 2 kit lenses

  • Excerpt: Not top of the line, but I get to eat this week, and I can put the money I saved by buying Sigma into my piggy bank for a new camera. No lens creep at all for me, though the zoom is tight around 80mm, maybe deliberately.
  • Pros: Compact Size, Consistent Output, Zoom
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Tough To Attach

perfect for everyday

  • Excerpt: I was looking for an everyday lens, I looked at the Pentax 18-270mm but at 589.00 I felt this was a better deal, also offering Macro. I have a Sigma 10-20 wide angle and that has been a great lens. I'm very satisfied with this lens and highly recommend it.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: NONE

Worthy upgrade to kit lens

  • Excerpt: Bought this lens for Nikon D3300 to replace the 18-55mm VR II kit lens. It works great with the camera. Image quality is on par with the kit lens which was sharp itself. Initially the Sigma lens felt substantially heavier, and it took me some time to get used to its heft.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Good focus, Rugged
  • Cons: Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light

Outstanding value

Lidless, B&H Photo
22 January 2015
  • Excerpt: When I was researching lenses, the professional reviews all talked about how any superzoom was a compromise and not to expect the kind of quality that a less ambitious lens might provide. So I was expecting to be a bit disappointed.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus

  • Excerpt: Image quality is overall very good, as good as the best lenses just a generation ago, and, as I recall, some excellent photos were taken in the 20th Century. Inexpensive, rugged, lightweight. Works only on crop sensor cameras (such as APS-C sensors).
