  • Excerpt: This is a very nice lens if your looking to upgrade from your kit lens. Images are sharp (except in the far corners), nice image stabilization, nice range. The only minor issue is that sometimes the autofocus is not as fast as you would like.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Very good zoom lens feels like a prime

  • Excerpt: With f 2.8 and VR (called OS in Sigma), it is like a prime lens through 20-50mm range (at least, for my copy). It shows some Barrel distortion at 17-18 range. But yet, it stays on my camera as it serves the purpose of 24, 28, 35 and 50 mm f/1.8 prime lenses without having to change them.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Reasonable Fast Af, Reasonably fast AF
  • Cons: Not very sturdy

Nice lens, but not without its problems

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens specifically for low-light video use, and for the price, I'm mostly satisfied. The glass is fast and the images are sharp, even compared to much higher priced lenses with similar specs. That said, there are two things I'm somewhat dissatisfied with.
  • Pros: Consistent Output

A very capable standard zoom

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a strong standard zoom for my APS-C Nikon that won't break my wallet, after comparing this Sigma with Tamron's equivelant offerings, I decided to give it a try, and I was glad I did. It was sharp throughout the zoom range from f4.0 down, and has good skin tone on my camera.

  • Excerpt: Awesome lens. Replaces Canon 28-105 kit lens. Major improvement. Saving for Sigma f2.8 70-200 ex dc os hsm. Now my pix are worth getting Photoshop, and a better monitor.

great f/2.8 lens for the price ...

  • Excerpt: Focuses pretty quickly, silently and is very sharp. Good price for near excellent performance. I've not had any focusing issues as some have mentioned. I have identical copy in Nikon mount that has been trouble-free as well. Bokeh is good, not great.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Good quality affordable lens

JH, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens to primarily take pictures at my son's youth basketball games. I can sit court-side so long focal lengths aren't that necessary, what I need is a fast lens because of the typically poor lighting conditions in the gyms he plays in.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy
