Very good

  • Excerpt: For the price this is awesome. It does lack a bit in the 'bells and whistles', and can't be compared to glass that is 10x its price, but for what it is, I am very happy with it. I've been using it for about a month now, and have gotten some pretty decent pics with it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight

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.

  • Summary: Product delivered promptly, and as advertised. Works like a charm. Not a huge difference from the 200, but enough to make my pictures better

Good but not great

  • Excerpt: I am comparing this lens to a Nikon 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 which I also own. The Sigma is a quality looking lens, and has a nice bayonet hood included. The macro feature is nice and comes in handy. However, this lens does not have as much contrast as the Nikon, and is not quite as sharp at the 300 mm range.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
