Summary: I love this lens. I have only had it a month, I have used it with my Nikon D7100 to take some really unbelievable shots of the moon. I received it late afternoon and the first night got some really great shots. No learning curve.

Summary: I just got my lens a few days ago and just had a chance to use it today. I went down below the house and set up to take a few pictures of Mt. Hood as we can see it from across the street. You will need a pack mule, 3 teen age kids, and a wagon to pack the tripod lens and body.

As such, a very fun lens.
Summary: I got this lens for avian photography, with high hopes of its quality and performance. Unfortunately, when they were shipping this lens to me, UPS forgot to feed it. When it arrived at my house, I unpacked it and did the usual new lens tests.
Summary: I read with interest the three previous reviews. Unfortunately, I have poor results with this lens. My particular lens required warranty in the first month after purchase. Subsequently, I have returned this lens to Sigma two additional times.
