  • Summary: The flexibility of this lens it´s great. The autofocus it´s a little bit slow, specially if you are taking moving objects, but overall, it´s a great bargain! Pics are not incredible sharp but highly acceptable. In general, Sigma lenses are very good!

Not for all cameras

David Manning "The Dave Manning", Amazon

  • Summary: WARNING if you have a low end entry level DSLR then you will probably want to buy this. This camera lens does not have a motor in it and if your camera does not have a motor in it, it will not autofocus. Wish I would have known before my purchase, or I would have saved up for the nikor 55-200mm.

Good budget lens but not perfect

Scott, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to save some money on a zoom lens but found that the sharpness just wasn't there. I did all sorts of test shots using both the AF and the MF but both really didn't wow me. There is also no image stabilization and I had lots of camera movement in my photos.

Not as sharp as I'd hoped for.

Rebecca M. Obrien, Amazon

  • Summary: The lens is nice and light weight but kind of slow to focus and the focus isn't as sharp as I would've thought. I have trouble with my eyesight so I really rely on on my autofocus. What looks great through the lens doesn't always look so hot in production on my computer.

It's okay for the $$$$$

  • Summary: The lens is average. The zoom quality is mediocre and the edges do get a tad fuzzy. You get what you pay for. It will do what I need for the time in which I have it.

plastic build, light weight, surprising optics

E. K. Arnold "amazon hunter", Amazon

  • Summary: i briefly had this lens and though i traded it in, it's actually a pretty good deal for the money. anyone expecting a pro-quality lens or a 2.8 at this price is insane. the first thing you notice is that the build quality is super-plastic-y, even toy-like.

It's OK, but if you can afford more then do so.

Mr. M. Graveston "gravyboy", Amazon

  • Summary: This was the first lens I bought after getting my K100D. It's pretty good value for the money, but in my opinion is slightly let down by it's resolving abilities. Most images seem to be slightly soft, especially when compared to my f1.7 50mm.

Billig aber solide

Chris, Amazon
26 January 2012
  • Summary: Der Versand dauerte leider etwas länger als erwartet aber das tut ja nichts an der Qualität des Objektives ändern. Ich habe dieses Objektiv jetzt seit etwa 2 Jahren. Auf jedenfall für den Preis sehr solide (viele staubige Reisen und noch immer keine Abbildungseinbußen).

Für den Preis ok, aber...

Erklärbär, Amazon
29 July 2010
  • Summary: Zuerst einmal gesagt: Für den Preis ist die Leistung gut und die Verarbeitung dem Preis angemessen. Doch wer so etwas wie Hochwertigkeit oder gute Haptik erwartet wird klarerweise enttäuscht werden.

Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis = Top!

Zaphod, Amazon
1 December 2009
  • Summary: Da meine Präferenzen eher im Weitwinkel- bzw. Porträtbereich (an der 450D 30-50mm) liegen und ich dennoch für den Notfall ein Telezoom in der Tasche haben wollte entschied ich mich für das sehr günstige Sigma.
