Excerpt: Recently putchased a Canon EOS6D body and needed a long end zoom lens that would also double as a macro. Bought this from B and H and impressed with their service and vey impressed wit the lens quality both optically and build quality. Superb value. Well done Sigma
Excerpt: This lense really its the best deal, considering price and performance.I needed a 300mm zoom, i buy this instead of others for this reasons- Really a bargain, maybe it wont give the IQ of the sony, but it cost 7 times less- Its sharp at center, and using a sony aps-c, you get the better of this...
Excerpt: For a lens that reaches out to 300mm and cost under $, you can't go wrong with that. Images are sharp at 300mm and has fast auto focus; all be it noisy. As an amateur photographer, who can't spend $-$ on a long lens, this is a good compromise.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: I read the reviews and decided to pick this lens up. I looked at as that this will be great to get me by until I can really splurge. And it is! It is loud and it focus slow and toggling back and forth between auto focus and manual will happen.
Excerpt: I first took this lens to a local park with my children and captured wonderful images of them playing together. Next test I took it to a local area known for birds and wildlife and was able to capture a few great images of cardinals and some baby Great Horned Owls.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Overall, this lens is a good value....but you get what you pay for. The lens is decent at 70-150 or so, but gets much softer after about 200. It is good in daylight, but - as you would expect - not so great in low light conditions.
