  • 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!!!

  • Summary: A good lens, however. Have had several occasions when the lens stops communicating with my 50d body. I have to turn off the camera, remove the lens and reattach.

Did not preform well.

Ed Bob, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a Pentax K-20D and the SIGMA 18-50 F/2.8-4.5 SLD Aspherical DC Optical Stabilized (OS) Lens would not perform well or adequately in low light as advertised. It is also big and heavy. Save your money buy a Pentax or Tamron.

Better than Canon EF-S 18-55 IS, olny heavier

Ricardo Galassi, Amazon
13 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this lens because my original Canon lens was broken. For my amateur needs, it is very satisfying. The 1:2.8 aperture is great, and the building seems to be strong. The built-in zoom system is very interesting. The only con is that this lens is heavier than the original Canon. Beside that, no complains at all.

  • Summary: The Sigma has decent IQ, and build quality far superior to the Canon 18-55. Has a nice feel and looks good on the camera (important to some people).

Adequate but a little disappointed too

Herball "herball", Amazon

  • Summary: Am just an amateur and picked up a T4i with the 40mm pancake lens a few months ago. Thought this would be a better all purpose lens than a stock Canon 18-55mm. Read many reviews and took a chance on this one. Sample photo quality so far is more than adequate for my purpose with good true colors. Focus is sometimes a little slower than expected though but not bad.
