Fun lens

  • Excerpt: Surprisingly good results from this lens. I actually went through 2 nikon lens that broke, on with the auto focus got stuck and another just fell apart, so I got this. I have had it a few months now and find myself using my old camera a lot more (nikon d200 with this lens) than I used to. It is durable. Of course it has it's limits, I wouldn't take this to a wedding or anything, this is a great lens for the money and I am very happy I bought it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Rugged
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Great all-in-one for Blackmagic Cinema

  • Excerpt: Excellent price! I bought this just for my Blackmagic Cinema Camera, and it works great! Some lenses don't work well, like the Canon 70-200 F4 L- the iris controls don't work for some reason. This Sigma's iris works well, but the IS does not. Oh well. Image seems good enough, sharp. Ergonomics and build quality are above average. I wish the focus ring turned further for easier manual use.
  • Pros: Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I had been looking for a great general lens that offers a wide range and I just recieved my new lens. I have done some small photos around the house and work and I am fully enjoying it so far. I look to my vacation next week to try and put it through its full range of test.

Excellent for the price

  • Excerpt: I got this lens for one year now. The zoom range it's amazing. Although its slow focus (that's why the 4 stars), the optical stabilizer it's great. The macro is ridiculous, I can even take photos of fingerprints. Don't know why people complaint about lens creep, since not even once this caused me any problem. I use it for both photo (70D) and video (Blackmagic Cinema Camera) at least 3 times/week, and I can't tell any difference since I bought it, it seems like new.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Zoom Range

Good Everyday Lens

  • Excerpt: Great one-size-fits all everyday lens. The autofocus is a bit noisy but works fine. My only quibbles are the lens creep (but I figure that's why the lens has a locking tab on it to prevent that from happening) and the focus ring on the front is very close to the zoom ring as I frequently feel the focus ring moving when I'm gripping the zoom ring...guess my hands are a bit large.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Good Buy

  • Excerpt: I like the fact that you have a does it all in only one lens. Not heavy to carry on a small bag with the camera. The only thing that I don't like from this lens is the material that doesn't feel strong.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Weak Casing

Surprised by its sharpness. A good lens!

  • Summary: I have had several Sigma lenses over the years. Some were not very good (OK, they were bad). Then some were fantastic, especially for the money. This is one of those. I got this particularly for my daughter's camera because it had a long range plus macro. I knew we'd have to sacrifice an f-stop or two but that happens with some of these consumer-based zooms. I expected that. What I didn't expect was how sharp it was. For a consumer-based lens, it's very nice.

The perfect kit lens replacement

Bryank67, B&H Photo
3 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I made my purchase at B&H after making the mistake of going to the many rip off stores of Times Square. Please never buy any where else other than B&H if you go to New York professional advice and service plus you can return if you are unhappy unlike like the rip off stores! now to the lens after much debate and questioning. As I am a novice and new to DSLR photography I decided that I needed a lens that would eliminate the necessity to carry both my nikon's kit lenses.
