I loved this lens it was my baby

  • Summary: I loved this lens it was my baby. Sharp images. It did have fringing at the longer focal lengths. As loong as you aint shooting against white or anything close to white you should be good.

For non-Nikon/Canon lenses, Sigma is now my go-to

  • Summary: LOVE THIS LENS!! My first non-prime lens was a Tamron wide angle zoom and the autofocus was just plain unusable. When I invested in this lens to get more compression in the backgrounds of my portraits, I was shocked at how awesome the autofocus is! Definintely the highlight.

got it for the wrong purpose

Samantha Rose, Amazon

  • Summary: this is definitely a macro lens. I tried to pull it off as a sports lens, but using rapid fire shutter on this wasn't the greatest. sigma makes great lenses - used it for some portraiture too, that worked a lot better than using it for sports.

Fast glass, great price,

Joshua D. Meadows, Amazon

  • Summary: The autofocus is plenty fast and the lens is sharp. The controls are smooth and it just feels good in my hand. The Optical Stabilazation is very good. I have used this lens repeatedly carrying it only in hand, and my images came out very sharp.

Amazing Value, For most purposes, beat Canon.

Henry, Amazon
7 October 2014
  • Summary: Just bought this lens after using a Canon Non IS version of this lens. The only thing that is different in a negative way is the autofocus. The Canon lens does focus faster, but, not a very noticeable amount. This lens focuses fast enough for me, but I trust the Canon more.

Severely dissatisfied.

TechOps, Amazon
14 September 2014
  • Summary: Not sure if I just got a bundle of bad glass, but I couldn't get this lens to focus on my D7000. Tried it for 2.5 weeks, making many adjustments to fine-tune focus settings, still no joy. 70mm was back focused, 200mm was front focused. For $1000+ I expected better quality.

  • Summary: Simply amazing lens!! Super sharp and precise, gorgeous bokeh, maybe it is me but feels that my photography is more live when i use it...! I'd buy it again if lost, it comes with me everywhere i go along with my 17 - 50 f/2.8 also by Sigma. Quit fooling around buy it!! :)

Worth the money?

Brian Leuthold, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: I am not a pro, but do take a lot of photos; especially sports. I am team photographer for my kids soccer teams. I needed something faster for shooting under the lights; this does that. No need for a flash at all. There are circumstances that if in auto mode, the pic is over exposed.
