Awesome lense

  • Excerpt: Strange that I am reviewing a lens that has been around for a while. I don't review anything until I use it for a few months. Reviewing an item out of the box is not a good review since you really didn't use it. This lens is awesome!!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Price

  • Excerpt: I have owned the previous version of this lens, non os, and I have used the Nikon 70-200, version 1 and 2. For what I needed from this kind of lens it just didn't make sense to buy the Nikon, so, I went with the Sigma once again. My copy is sharp at f/2.8 and at all focal lengths.

  • Excerpt: Have always used a Sony lens prior to buying this one. I have a Sony 70-400mm and the speed of the focusing of this Sigma lens is as impressive. Great luck with it so far, have no complaints.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Completely happy with my purchase

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens instead of the Nikon, and I have yet to be disappointed. The only discernible difference is the quality of the glass, this one already has as a very minor scratch, meanwhile my similarly treated Nikon lenses that I have owned for longer do not.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: I mainly work with prime lens but sometimes I need more reach. I purchased this lens to replace an older sigma version and after testing it I am pleased with the results. It is better than the older version in both focus speed and sharpness.

Fast Telephoto Zoom Won't break the Bank

Sharp, fast zoom at a good price

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens because I began photographing some events, and for shooting indoor I needed a fast lens. I don't have any previous experience with similar lenses but I'm flattered from the results. I use it on a Nikon D800. I found the autofocus really fast and silent.
  • Pros: Affordable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Silent
  • Cons: Non Tropicalized, Uncompfy Hood

Great Lens, but NOT an L Lens.

  • Excerpt: If you're like so many people, you probably came across this lens after looking at the 2.8L ii Canon lens, and are saying to yourself "it's half the cost, it's probably just as good". Continue reading..

Nice lens for the price

  • Excerpt: It is a relatively new purchase for me but I am impressed with the overall quality and performance of this lens. I have not used the equivalent Nikon lens so can't compare the two. However, I was very clear about how much I was going to spend. If this is your budget, go for it.
