Perfect crop sensors portrait lens.

  • Summary: Arrived on time and well packaged. This is the best 2.8 zoom for DX body. If your staying with dx then get this. If your going to full frame soon than your better off with a 70-200. Wonderfully sharp! FX equivalent zoom of 75-225. Good build quality and manageable weight. Highly recommend if your staying in the DX format.

Tack sharp. Very fast AF

  • Summary: This is a superb lens. Paired with my Nikon d7100, I'm getting pixel-peeping tack-sharp photos every time (YES, I get crappy photos, but never because of this lens, only my own limitations). The AF is quick, responsive, and accurate. I've never had it miss focus. I've never had it hunt the whole focus range. Yes, in a quiet room you can hear the OS engage, but it isn't very loud and is much quieter than a mirror moving out of the way.

Great Lens

  • Summary: I was torn between this and the Sigma 70-200 F2.8 and went with this because its a better fit for DX camera's. I have not been dissapointed. This is a great lens for the money but I will warn you it is quite heavy. I have the Nikon 28-70 F2.8 and thought it was heavy prior to my accquition of this lens but not anymore. So far so good. Image quality for the few shots I've taken with it so far is excellent.

Awesome Lens!

  • Excerpt: Excellent Lens! I bought this for my D7100 after reading DXO recommendations for my camera. I can say I couldn't be more pleased! Super sharp, excellent bokeh, fast - what else can be said? It is heavy and long (especially with the hood), but nothing that can't easily be managed. Love it!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Great Lens, Great Price

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens last week, and although I have not had a ton of time to use it yet, I love what I've seen so far. This lens offers nearly all the benefits of much more expensive lenses like the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS for a fraction of the price. Although it does not have the same 200mm reach, I actually think this Sigma lens has greater versatility than the popular 70-200 lenses, especially at the wide end. It is perfect for crop sensors.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Image stabilization, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Stellar!

  • Excerpt: Solid build<br />Nice focus (although I shoot mainly manual focus)<br />Great optics...very sharp. <br />Color/contrast better than Canon models IMO. <br />Bokeh... excellent! <br /><br />Nice for portraits as well. <br /><br />If you are in the market for a great macro lens... do hesitate to give the Sigma 150mm a try. I've owned the Canon 100mm macro and the Sigma 180mm macro version 1. The Sigma 150mm is a great fit right between the two.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Summary: Pro's] 1-Fast AF 2-Nicely built 3-Lens hood better than Nikon's 4-Sharp only between F4-F10 At any focal length 5-Nice carry pouch 6-At the current price of $949.00 it's a steal! Con's 1-Low light performance could be better 2-Zoom ring and focus ring should be swapped 3-At F2.8 Images tend to be soft, at any focal length especially using AF-S Single point, use AF-A 9 Point works much better 4-Tends to have a little back focusing issue, could be me, doesn't happen all...
