REVIEW: Sigma 55-200 f/4-5.6 DC

  • Conclusion: The combination of good build quality, reasonably good optical quality and price make this lens a good value for money bet and the full size manual focus ring has distinct advantages. Offered in conjunction with their standard zoom in many packages makes it even more of a bargain.
  • Pros: Good build and finish, Proper manual focus ring, Metal mount, Hood supplied
  • Cons: AF a little slow and noisy, Softens towards the longer end.

  • Excerpt: For those on a budget, the Sigma is well worth a look, with an average street price of £109, though the Nikon fit has a Hypersonic Motor (HSM) adding another £50 or so...

Sigma AF 55-200mm f/4-5.6 DC - Review / Lab Test Report

3 July 2005
  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 55-200mm f/4-5.6 DC is a budget lens and it shows in some aspects such as small max. aperture combined with a limited zoom range and some mechanical shortcomings (rotating front element and coupled focus ring). Nonetheless the lens is also capable to deliver quite impressive resolution results. So if you can live with its shortcomings and you just can't spend more for a faster or longer tele zoom the Sigma is a viable option.

Kipróbáltuk: Sigma 55-200mm/F4-5,6 DC

  • Summary: Az optikák közül általában a teleobjektívek kerülnek a legtöbbe. Egy jó minőségű, fényerős darabért nem ritka, hogy több százezer Ft-ot is ki kell adjunk. Az APS-C szenzorméretre rajzoló optikák azonban itt is költséghatékonyabb megoldást nyújtanak. Cikkünk alanya kevesebb, mint 50e Ft-ba kerül, mégis jó választás lehet a hobbi fotósok számára.
  • Pros: Alacsony ár, Könnyű, utazáshoz is ideális, Megfelelő felbontás - árához képest, Kromatikus aberráció 55 mm-nél nincs, 200 mm-nél nem túl jelentős
  • Cons: Egyszerű DC motoros fókusz, Nyitott blendénél jól látható peremsötétedés, Csak átlagos fényerő (de ilyen áron nem várható más!)
