Happy with my purchase.

  • Excerpt: I have a 50mm 1.4 ons and used it as my close focus lens or carry around lens. On a trip to NC I found myself in some situations where because of the crop<br />factor I couldn't get in everything I wanted and needed more of a wide angle.<br />Checking with friends the Sigma 18mm-50mm seemed to be a great fit. I have<br />been very pleased so far but the weather has restricted it's use somewhat so<br />far.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Have Not Used This This L, Lightweight

Somethings you should know

  • Excerpt: Overall construction of lens with internal moving parts is very good. But there are two things that you should know, If using the on board flash, when the lens is open up to it's widest setting w/ hood, there is a very large shadow blocked area, second and something the surprised me, is that after you take your picture, the picture revue stays on. Requires that you press the revue button to turn off screen. no big problem , but it is a surprise.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Shadow W On Board Flash

Good for the price

  • Excerpt: As an advanced amateur on a budget, this lens does nicely. It is acceptably sharp for the price, but obviously does not perform to the level of pricier models. The stabilization feature is a real plus.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Unbelievable value!

13 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I wanted to upgrade the 18-55mm kit lens that I use on my Nikon D90. I first bought the Tamron AF 17-50mm F/2.8 SP XR Di II VC from another vendor. I was extremely disappointed. The sharpness was very poor, the lens was heavy and to be honest...the Nikon 18-55 kit lens performed better. I returned it.<br /><br />I was about ready to stay with the Nikon kit lens when I came across this Sigma lens. Adorama had a used copy so I decided to give it a go.

  • Summary: I still haven't learned how to use it all the way, but it is definitely clear, easy to use, and sharp! Works well in semi-low lgiht situations. Great to partner/swich out with Pentax Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 8. Much better that kit lens!!!
