Summary: Well, It's a sigma lens so it's hard to go wrong there. As always its a really good piece of optics. I have to say I was impressed with the flash as well, it's a very nice unit. That's pretty much where it stops though. The kit I got did not come with the Vivitar backpack like it was supposed to.
Summary: Lens is great. Wife loves it. However, i am displeased with seller u.d.i. Box looked like it was used for a soccerball, and lens was packaged against box wall with bubble wrap to keep it there. Ya think you woulda WRAPED it in the bubble wrap. Just an idea.
Excerpt: Got this lens as a gift for my girlfriend a few years back. We both use it and love it very much. Fits on our T3i and takes really nice photos. We are both amatuer photographers but still get great shots from this.

Summary: As a novice photographer, I was looking for something I could take great photos with that would allow me to zoom in far. I have several friends in sports who persistently ask for action shots, and I purchased this lens because it was the only telephoto lens within my price range.
