Good but not Great...

Summary: I found this lens for cheap and decided to give it a try. The focus is fast and works with my Nikon D3200. The motor is a bit noisy for my liking. For the ranges of this lens the animals are far enough away they don't seem to hear or mind the noise. The stabilization is great. No blurry pics anymore. Focuses right in on birds, dear and other animals. The color is what seems to be a little bit off.
Summary: I am learning how to use this lens. I took it on a birding trip recently and was very pleased with it. It is very powerful and as a novice birder, I was able to obtain some amazing photos. I would recommend this lens to others.
Summary: As a professional, licensed photographer I am cursed with the never ending desire to acquire another 'must have' piece of equipment (It's a sickness I tell you) but when something truly wonderful comes along, it's delightful. I am already a big fan of Sigma lenses and instantly fell in love with their 10-20 super wide angle but that's another story. Sigma has a reputation for designing and building extremely good lenses but only their more expensive ones.
Summary: This is the second Sigma lens I own and I've had it for almost two years now. The quality is there, no problems at all. It does not come with a case but I already had a case for it when I got it. My Sigma 10-20mm came with a case but not this telephoto. Works fabulous with my new Nikon D7100. Order one today.
Summary: I am using a 70D and for a while had the Tamron 18-270mm lens. I was not satisfied with the results when I was out from 200 to 270. Very soft, and color was not good. I saw the Sigma and bought it from my local dealer. The lens is fantastic, the colors are solid and the clarity is much better than the Tamron and also better than my original 55-250 Canon. There is no lens creep and it feels great when attached to my 70D. For the price it will beat others in this range.
