Soft, with lots of aberrations

A. Nathanson, Amazon

  • Summary: I used this lens with my Rebel T2i, and believe me, I really wanted to like it for its $200 price point. Wide-open at f/2.8 (available only at 18mm), I was dumbfounded by how soft the output was.

Pentax users beware: low-light shots are no better than kit lens

  • Summary: I bought this lens hoping that the F/2.8 and optical stabilization would provide better indoor shots than the Pentax kit lens 18-55mm F/3.5-5.4. Unfortunately it provides no improvement for low-light shots. I am using this on a Pentax K-x.

  • Summary: I've received one copy of this through amazon, not through a vendor and when compared to my tamron 17-50 2.8, this one is blurry and soft at 2.8.

Be wary of quality control

J. Mackey, Amazon
26 December 2007
  • Summary: I went through two copies of this lens. The first copy had a front-focus problem approaching 20mm. I sent sample shots to Sigma, and they directed me to simply return the lens to Amazon rather than have it serviced. So, I exchanged it (big points to Amazon for making that so easy!

  • Summary: Bilder sind prinzipiell überbelichtet. Ständig muss probiert werden und nach der richtigen Einstellung gesucht werden. Habe die Rücksendung leider verpasst, da ich dachte es läge an mir. Liegt es nicht.

Fokusierungsfehler bei Sony Alpha SLT 55

24 October 2010
  • Summary: An sich ist dieses Objektiv sehr gut verarbeitet, macht einen schönen Eindruck, und die Makrofunktion ist wirklich sehr gut! Wenn das Sigma Objektiv richtig fokusiert macht es auch gute Bilder.

  • Excerpt: Я не доволен. Больше брать аналогов не буду.
  • Pros: Хорошее качество сборки, светосила, не высокая цена
  • Cons: резкость далеко не на высоте..даже при съемке со штатива.. постоянно желтит, снимаю Никон Д80, возможно в других камерах, ведет себя иначе, но врядли.
