Excerpt: I needed a solid zoom lens. The price was right. The quality is way higher than expected. I took photos during a friends wedding and they turned out beautifully with this lens. The auto focus is a little sketchy at time depending on distance and settings, but that's the only drawback I've found.
Excerpt: Wonderful lens, great for portraits. I enjoy the macro function, but definitely will need a tripod or monopod to help with stabilization. I had an almost identical lens for my film camera, and used it for years, and was always very impressed with the fine detail quality of the images.
Pros: Attaches Securely, Durable, Good Color Value, Powerful
Excerpt: I use this lens on a Canon EOS 6D. The images are very sharp, even turning out very nicely at 300mm. For the price, this lens shouldn't perform as well as it does. Flare is well controlled, and I haven't noticed any vignetting. It even performs well wide-open, though stopping down still helps.
Excerpt: Okay, fyi, I am college student who is not willing to spend more than $500 for single lens. (Although i want to, its just difficult to spend that kind of money on single lens.)But, this lens literally fits perfect on my budget and do the great job as it suppose to.
Pros: Budget, Durable, Good Color Value, Lightweight, Long-Lasting, Value
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.
Summary: Great Lens for the Money! optically this lens has a very nice sweet spot on aps-c/DX format camera(make sure its the APO MACRO VERSION(redline) i mounted this lens to a Nikon D5100- great images till about 200mm (350mm on a DX Body) if your lighting is good then this lens rocks..
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..
