Excellent Replacement for the Pentax DA-L 55-300

M, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: This is an awesome replacement for the Pentax 55-300. I owned a DA-L 55-300 that was sent off to pentax for a $225 repair. $225 later and I WOULD'VE been the proud owner of a used DA-L or better still I can buy a brand new Sigma 70-300 and perhaps get a little more usage and life. I own an 18-55 and I thought I would miss the coverage in between 18-55 and 70-300. That was an unecessary concern because it is rare that anyone would use a lens like this in the 70-100 range.

Recommended, but forwarned

  • Summary: Now that I've had this lens for awhile, I can write an objective review. All in all, it's a terrific lens and I bought it at a good price. Focus and clarity are excellent, producing so quality prints, even on the Macro settings. Two drawbacks to it though, are minor and can be lived with. First: there's the tendency for it to "search" for the focus plain while on autofocus. Going back and forth while trying to focus.

in coordination with the Book " Nikon D3300 From Snapshots to Great Shots", has gone beyond what I would have ...

  • Summary: I had originally purchased the Manual Nikon 70-300mm for My D3300..It only took a few pics to realize that my vision problems, were tricking me with clear shots through the viewer and just so slightly blurred pics. So I purchased this lens...Using this lens, in coordination with the Book " Nikon D3300 From Snapshots to Great Shots", has gone beyond what I would have expected!! I am "not" a Photographer, just a guy that hikes with a camera...Just an example.

good deal on ebay

  • Summary: I am using this Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG lens on a Pentax K100D. Its a solid feeling lens with a good autofocus, good range, and sharp focus. The colors are a little unsaturated but you are able to fix on photoshop. It has that micro grainy feel to the moving of the zoom that is similar to my other Sigma lens. On a sunny day its a good walk around lens, and distant portraits. The bokeh is like a gaussian blur.

My first non kit lens. Love it.

Jerry "Uber Geek", Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: I love this thing. Seriously it's quickly become my go to lens for just about everything. With this and a 50mm Prime you don't really need much more for normal shooting. I've taken some really fantastic photos with it, ranging from extreme closeups on flowers to 8 mile distant skyline photos (I actually measured the distance in Google Earth). I have recommended this lens to other friends both in the Canon and Nikon families.
