Severely dissatisfied.

  • 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.

POOR BUILD

Rey, Amazon
15 December 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunately, I can't say that I was happy with this item. I purchased this item based on recommendations and was primarily using it for sports photos. Well it only lasted 4 months when I found that the lens had fallen apart while attached to the camera in my padded bag.

Buy It Somewhere Else (on Amazon) Besides 47th Street.

Just Another Sale, Amazon

  • Summary: CC:Amazon Customer Service This is a replacement for the exact same lens, b/c it is starting to wear out after 100,000+ photos. One of THE great lenses. As for 47th Street Photo:Customer satisfaction must not be a big deal here.

lens review

  • Summary: I've bought the lens and I thought it had a ''very good'' rate for a used item, but then when i unpacked the lens, and attached it to my camera, it didn't focus and the zoom didn't work, that's why I returned it to the address you gave me.

Nice while it still worked ...

Larry, Amazon
13 October 2009
  • Summary: I have had the lens for slightly over one year - just long enough for the warranty to have expired - and the auto-focus no longer functions. When I took the lens to the local camera shop, I was told that I was the second person that day with this lens who experienced the failure of the auto focus...

Back focus is an issue!

Peter D. Raphael "Dave Raphael", Amazon
5 October 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this lens after having owned the Tamron. This is a great lens except that I received mine with a significant back focus issue. I've read others complaining about this as well on the Nikon mount. I just don't believe this is acceptable in a lens at this price point.

User Review

Rob Vestin, Fotosidan.se
8 September 2014
  • Conclusion: Den här skall ni inte köpa. Det är världens mest meningslösa objektiv. Du måste blända ner till 5.6 innan skärpan blir acceptabel, och vad skall man då med 2.8 till? De här tidiga varianterna av Sigma Zoomen saknar rw-chip, och kan således inte korrigeras för fokusfel.
  • Pros: Imponerar på omgivningen, stor och tung. Ser dyr ut.
  • Cons: Ej justerbar af, Oanvändbar på full Öppning, Osäker autofokus. Hemsk oskärpeteckning
