Price is not the measure of a lens

  • Excerpt: I bought the Sigma 70-300 DG OS mostly to photograph the moon. For this it has proven excellent. I had previously borrowed a Nikon 70-300 VR and thought it was pretty good but the Sigma lens is better for less than half the price. The lens is not very loud and the OS works at least as good as the Nikon lenses I have.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: This lens works perfectly with my Nikon D7000. I have used it in Auto, P, A, S and M modes without a glitch. The price I paid was less than half of the competitors. The shipping was extremely fast. HIGHLY recommend this lens and purchase it through B & H.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Great lens for travel.

  • Summary: Already have the Nikon, but it is just too heavy to take on extended trips with airfare. This lens fits the bill and is really a nice lens, too. Much lighter.

Great Lens, Great Shots

  • Excerpt: I use my new lens at The Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge to take pictures of the wonders of nature. I love the fact that I can zoom in on everything! I also like the fact that it's not too heavy to use without a tripod. I have noticed that it is sometimes slow to react while using the auto zoom. However, I've been able to capture images that I have not been able to get with my other lenses.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

OK, but watch out for . . .

MW, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: There was a problem with the auto-exposure interface when used on a Nikon d5100. When used in aperture priority mode, the image was overexposed. Correct exposure was achieved in shutter priority or if LivedView is used. Since I live 10 minutes from an authorized Sigma (and Nikon) service center, I had them look at it. They adjusted both to factory specs which reduced but did not eliminate the problem. It is likely a firmware issue that cannot be corrected.
  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus

Great Utility Telephoto

Toni, B&H Photo
1 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Decided to purchase these lens as a all-around telephoto expecting average results, was pleasantly surprised with the outcomes - very competitive for the price range and definitely a telephoto any enthusiast would value before going pro and spending 10x or more on similar focal length in ultra-sharp glass. The build is solid, performance decent, auto-focus relatively accurate and, most importantly, results are very sharp.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Excellent lens at affordable price

Selia, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I needed a telephoto zoom lens with greater capacity than the one I have. I am an artist working from photos and like to get pictures of people out at fairs or in malls, etc. The farther away I can stand with my camera, the less noticeable I am. This lens allows me to take the shots I want without making the people I'm photographing paranoid (as in, who is she? why is she taking my picture?
