Really good lens for its price.

  • Excerpt: I mainly use this to shoot local birds and small critters with the use of the macro/telephoto function. This lens is very sharp. It's actually sharper than my kit 18-55mm lens that came on my D3100. The lens is a little soft at 4-5.6, but gets really sharp at f8. The lens has some weight to it and it feels pretty solid. The macro function works between 200-300mm and still produces sharp results! I am extremely happy with this lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Don't judge this lense by the price.

  • Excerpt: This is fantastic value for an entry level zoom lens.<br />I use it on my Nikon D3100. Yes, the auto focus is a little slow, and it is a bit noisy however I can not be happier with this purchase. <br />I wanted a telephoto lense, since I only have the 18-55mm kit lens the D3100 came with.<br />After reading review after review, I pulled the trigger on this one, and happy that I did.

Pretty Good For a 'Cheap' Lens.

  • Excerpt: This Sigma lens is well built and feel solid. I am impressed by its quality considering the price I paid for it. The auto-focus is noisy and slow, but it gets the job done. Macro is down to 1: 2 @300mm, very useful for taking macro pix of flowers, gritters and pets. You have a 3+ feet working distance. With the 9-blade diaphragm aperture construction, it makes a fine portrait lens with pleasing Bokeh. However, I would not recommend it for Sports or Hyperactive kids.
  • Pros: 2 Macro 300mm, Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

A Winner.

  • Summary: To begin with he Sigma APO Macro 70-300 mm F/4.0-5.6 APO DG Lens is a FULL FRAME lens that can be used by the top of the line models of Nikon cameras . It is very light and reasonably compact for the range of focal lengths it covers. Not only it image quality is first class , its price cannot be beaten by no manufacturers and that , in my book , makes it a winner.

Great Lens for the value

  • Excerpt: Good Quality Lens for the price. I liked the Macro feature and it does do what is promised. It is not a lens to replace your Macro lens but can come handy if you are not carrying one. I used it on my Sony A77 and it did a decent job. The images are sharp. There are no soft edges. Lens quality isn't bad either. There are two versions of this lens. DG APO Macro and DG Macro. Get the APO version which is like $50 more at the time of this review.
