not for Pentax users

Jorge Acuna, Amazon

  • Summary: if you are thinking to acquire this lens as your first lens is ok, but if you are thinking to buy this lens just to replace your kit lens, its better not. I own a Pentax K-x and I decided to buy this lens looking to have a brighter lens (it has F/2.8).

Very average image quality, problems with AF

V. Komarov, Amazon
8 September 2009
  • Summary: The image quality of the pictures is average (tested with Canon D450), but the bad part was Autofocus performance. It failed 50% of the time and worked mostly on the pictures were objects were at the same distance from the camera.

OK for a casual, poor for an amateur/semi-pro photographer

Thomas Black, Amazon
21 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this lens for my 500D to replace my kit lens and to give me the option of taking some wide-angle shots at F2.8, which would have been good for my live-music photography. What I got was a lens which, whilst well made and sturdy, was well below-par in terms of picture quality and sharpness.

Looks the part it's far from it !!!

Paul Stephen King, Amazon

  • Summary: Unpack it and the build quality is great. Mount it on your camera and the focus is fast. But it's no macro lens that's for sure. Okay the images are crisp, sharp and bright when you have good available light but anything above f8 and the chromatic aberration is dreadful.

Poor image quality

Alan, Amazon
20 June 2010
  • Summary: Its built solid, focus is ultra fast, the VR really works great. But if your serious about your photography give this a miss as the image quality is no where near good enough, if you just want a lens to mess about with you may be happy with it.

  • Excerpt: Брал как штатник. Тестил несколько экземпляров, вроде нашел с нормальным фокусом. Через пару лет накрылся по собственным причинам. В сервисе развели руками: "запчастей на сигму нет". Ну да и овчинка выделки не стоит.
  • Pros: цена, приятно лежит в руке
  • Cons: экземпляр надо выбирать, низкая надежность

  • Summary: gli zoom standard sono bui e costano molto poco gli zoom professionali hanno grandi aperture (in genere 2.8 su tutta la lunghezza focale) ma costano uno stipendio (se non di più) ogni tanto escono valide alternative da terze parti,ma non è questo il caso la resa ottica degli obiettivi di aziende...
  • Pros: nessuno
  • Cons: poco luminoso

Fast 2013 und immer noch Endkontrolle durch Kunden

Niklas R., Amazon

  • Summary: Erst mal das Positive: +Sehr guter und schneller AF +Innenfokusierend +Gute Farbwiedergabe +Stabiel gebaut +Sonnenblende dabei Jetzt zum Negativen. -Das Objektiv mit EF Barionett lässt sich nur schwer auf meine 450d drehen, bei mein Tamron Sp 70-300 geht das Butterweich und sitzt Bombe.

  • Summary: Lange habe ich überlegt, wie viele Sterne ich diesem Objektiv geben sollte. Technisch gesehen, hat das Objektiv 4 Sterne verdient, wenn es sauber justiert ist. Warum aber nur 2 Sterne übrig geblieben sind, dazu komme ich später.
