  • Summary: I recently had this lens serviced by Sigma due to autofocus issues (back-focus) I been seeing on this lens and another, Nikon 80-200, on my D7000. The camera shop used Fine Tune to dial adjust the back-focus and said the Sigma wouldn't respond to it, in either direction ( - or + ). They recommended it send it Sigma and agreed, camera shop sent it off for me.

  • Summary: The lens seems to be a good lens as long as you are using manual focus. When the AF does work don't expect speed it is slow, but most people use a macro in MF mode anyway. The lens does a decent job as a portrait lens, but again don't expect it to focus very fast. The lens does also seem to hunt a bit while trying to lock focus. I had a front focus issue with the AF, and the AF stopped working at about 3 months of ownership.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Slow Focus

Totally Bummed

  • Summary: I shoot models, this lens is very slow and when it locks it's focus can be hit or miss!! Sometimes it is crisp and sharp sometimes it is blurry!! Most of all, I found that it wanders or hunts for focus constantly searching for the subject that it is pointed at!!! I am sending it back along with more money and waiting for the Sigma 70-200 2.8!! I hope it works or I do not know what I will do!!
  • Pros: Sharp when it works
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Lens Creep, Slow Focus
