  • Summary: If you are wondering about buying this lens the main thing you should consider is if you are purchasing one that is designed to work with the digital line (assuming you have a digital camera, otherwise it will certainly work just fine with a film camera). You can do this best by getting confirmation from the seller. In the case of my lens the seller assured me it was for a digital camera and for the past month plus its been working flawlessly.

GREAT LENS AT A VERY REASONABLE PRICE

Dixon Steele, Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: The Macro feature is especially useful and easy to use, offering various magnifications simply by zooming in or out. The zoom range from wide angle to portrait length will cover the ordinary needs of most of us, and is provided in a lightweight package that won't make you feel like you've been tied to an anchor. To accomplish that, Sigma uses a dense plastic which will endure a lot of abuse which, hopefully, your lens will not have to experience.

It's a cheap lens, but it's cheap and it's a lens

Josh N., Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: That's pretty much the good and the bad of it. I ordered mine because I liked the range on this lens and it's cheap, so it should get me by until I can get a better lens. That said, I wasn't expecting much from this lens, and I got about what I expected. The lens is reasonably sharp, nothing great, but sharp enough to publish. I didn't use the auto focus (AF doesn't work on the Nikon D5000 or D40), and the manual if fairly easy to use.

  • Summary: Excellent value for what I paid, about 12 dollars.Smooth AF and Great Macro shots and above average pictures at other focal lengths, as good as or slightly better than the kit lens. A good buy and definitely worth it.

Ok, not great.

  • Summary: The lens was ok, but it does not like Canon Cameras. If the battery is not fully charged, the camera will give a 99 error. It will also give the error if you switch to macro.

  • Summary: I have found this to be a very versatile all purpose lense - good to have on hand for most occasions - when someone dropped my lense and it broke i replaced it because i really missed it and realized how frequently i relied on it
