Summary: I have had this lens for a few years now on a D7000 but when I changed to a D800 I'm so glad I didn't sell it. Great for studio photography. I use it for wildlife, studio models/portraits and shooting small products .
Summary: I really required a longer telephoto with a larger aperture. I considered offerings from both sigma and Nikon and based on cost and others reviews I plumped for the sigma. The focusing was awful, even fine adjusting it via the menu in my d300 could not rectify it.
Summary: I looked at several 2.8 lenses in the 70-200 range and ruled out the Nikon straight away , Purely because of financial reasons . The Nikon costs about £1600 but my budget wouldn't stretch that far.
Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 APO EX DG Macro II Lens For Nikon
1 January 2012
Summary: This lens is stunning. I've had it for a few days now and have tested it across an urban environment and am well satisfied with it. Many others give a detailed breakdown of performance, from my perspective I've never felt happier with a lens.
Summary: I photograph bands, among other things, in often dark and badly lit pubs and where the difference between focussing on the microphone, guitar strings but not the face can make/break a picture. I need a lens to look serious, but not flashy, to compete with the press boys (& girls).
Summary: my lens arrived very promtly all the way from leipzig in germany and it is transforming my telephoto and macro photography this is a unique lens and very sharp, quick focussing. better than the nikon equivalent optic
Summary: I have owned this lens for about 9 months now. Overall I am very pleased with it. Build quality is very good with a solid well made robust lens body. Image quality it pin sharp, I have got 3 customer images loaded on this page. As yet I have no negative things to say about it.
Summary: A really good third party lens! I use it a lot on my Nikon D90. the lens it's reliable, silent, sharp enough even wide open and the results are really good! probably it's not at the Nikon level, that I've never used, but it cost a third and I'm not a professional photographer so I probably don't...
