Great lens for the price!
6 January 2015
Summary: Great lens for the price (especially if you buy a used one for $180 like I did). + Metal bayonet (most Nikkor lenses are plastic) + The HSM (IMO, the biggest advantage this lens has over similar lenses in the same price range) works as advertised, fast and surprisingly quiet. + The OS works well and helps to get sharp images at 200mm (handheld) - The lens rattles when the camera is off, but goes away when the camera is turned on.
Summary: Excellent lens, and reasonable too! Smooth and quiet zoom and auto focus. Images are tack sharp and lens is compact and not heavy....I shoot at or around f8, image quality might not be as good shooting wide open or at very small apertures, but in the f8 area its wonderful..............
Summary: I love love love this lens! I was impressed when I opened the box by the quality compared to the kit lens. Amazing image quality. I can definitely tell the difference! I couldn't be more thrilled, so I purchased the 18-50mm model as well. They are both great lenses at great prices. Needless to say, I will be sticking to using Sigma lenses for my personal and professional photography needs from here on out.
Summary: I absolutely love this lens and love the picture quality. I use it with my Nikon D5100 and haven't had any problems. My only complaint is that if the lens "thinks" I'm too close to an object, it won't focus or take the picture. Other than that, I haven't had any issues with it.
Summary: I found that i spend way more time at 200mm than i do at any other focal length mostly because the bokeh is amazing. Very little lens correction needed in post. I love everything about this lens great work from 50 to 200 The weight is great the markings for the focus point are extremely accurate, the auto-focus works pretty quick and very accurate.
