  • 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.

18 October 2013
  • Summary: Yes this is a very expensive Lens, and not for the faint of heart. I saved and saved and saved up for it but still couldn't afford it. It wasn't easy saving up for it.

First Impression

Dave Fox, Amazon
20 July 2013
  • 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.

Not for a Pro, but definitely for the rest of us

Lac "lac", Amazon

  • Summary: Fantastic lens. Soft at the far ends. It is the Sigmonster for sure. It's great for those that are looking to take some fantastic shots at incredible lengths, but not for those that plan to sell those shots to National Geographic (let's face it, most of us aren't). 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.

Perfect Lens In The Super Telephoto Zoom Range

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 February 2011
  • Summary: First off, this lens is no toy. It is a serious tool. One of the reviews here is not taking into account the persons ability to know how to use a lens like this. If you do not know how to use the lens, the lens can be no better than the photographer. This lens requires support.
