Make sure you have a focus motor in your camera or this won't work with it.

I purchased a Nikon D70S in August and decided on the Sigma 18-200mm lens instead of the 18-35mm Nikkor kit lens. It really boils down to how one uses this lens as to whether you like it or not. With the 1.5 conversion factor of the D70S, this lens operates as a 27-300mm. I do an ocassional wedding and senior photos throughout the year but I shoot more landscape/nature photography than anything. Unless a person requires a super fast lens, this piece does a very good job overall for the price. Since the majority of my work is off a tripod, the 3.5 max aperture has not been a problem even in very low light situations. Since it's the only Nikon based lens I own, its like having several lenses in one and I never have to worry about dust getting on the sensor during lens changes.

The 27mm is not as wide as I would have liked, but I have had no problems in making due with it especially doing group shots at weddings and has been quite sufficient for most landscapes.

The autofocus is quite fast when needed and it does quite well for my use as a portrait lens. Its 300mm capability really lets you bring in distant objects.

Color accuracy is quite good on both people and landscapes, and works acceptable with neutral density and circular polarizing filters.

My biggest complaint with this lens however, is a bit too much barrel distortion when shooting linear subjects and lens flare when shooting into the sun at sunrise or sunset. The flare problem may be as much the fault of the digital sensor as it is the lens, but I have been told by more than one pro that it's more the lens than the sensor. Therefore, that's why I gave it only 4 stars instead of 5. I have used Sigma lenses on my film cameras for many years and not had this kind of flare problem.

I bought this lense a year ago to go with my Nikon D50. I have been very happy with this lense. I researched quite a bit before I purchased this lense and had read many user reviews both good and bad. The negative reviews were mainly from Canon users related to an autofocus problem. I have not had any focus issues at all on my D50. Focus is fast and accurate providing incredibly sharp photos. I have my D50 set to focus on the center of the frame which is the way I typically use a camera.

There is some audible auto focus noise since the Nikon version of this lense does not have an internal focus motor. The lense relies on the auto focus screw driven by an internal motor in the D50 body (or any Nikon DSLR body except the D40 which doesn't have one). The noise heard is not the lense but the stepper motor in the D50 body. The identical noise is heard when I use my Nikon 50mm f1.8 lense which also relies on the autofocus screw/motor in the D50 body. Other Nikon AFS lenses are super quiet since Nikon includes a very quiet Silent Wave focus motor inside the lense which disables the DSLR body stepper motor.

You will notice the barrel distortion at the 18mm setting with photos of linear objects (eg. buildings or anything with straight lines). Keep in mind that even the Nikon 18-200mm lense at more than twice the price also exhibits the same percentage of barrel distortion as the Sigma. When covering this wide of a zoom range a compromise is made by the design engineers.

Another complaint I've read about, and is also an issue with the Nikon and Tamron, is that some people claim the 200mm zoom setting isn't true 200mm. Well this is correct when you're focusing on an object that the camera has not focused to infinity.

I did quite a bit of research before finally settling on this lense and I think I made a great choice. I was previously using my old 35-80 and 100-300 lenses from my film camera, but this lens allows me to have a much wider angle than I was used to and almost the same telephoto all without having to change lenses.

This lense is not as quite as a comperable new nikon lense, but it also much less expensive, and is much more quite than my old nikon lense. I have not noticed any prolems with the colors or image quality. As an average camera user I am extremely happy with my choice.

I was looking for an 18-200mm lens for my Nikon D50 SLR camera. Sigma is a recognizable trade name for lenses and the price of under $200 was appealing. The lens appeared to be what I wanted, however, the images showed significant "barrel" distortion and the expected maximum image magnification of 11 was less than 9. I returned the lens without any difficulty. My cost was the postage and mailing insurance both ways.

Verified Purchase
This lense is a great value. The size is perfect and the picture quality was good. I am not a pro and this is my first DSLR camera. I used it with my Nikon D50 and didn't have any problems with it. I bought it mainly, because I didn't want to spend $650 on a Nikon lense and was tired of carrying multiple lenses when on vacation. I used to carry a 28-80 and a 70 - 300 lense that came with the kit I bought at Costco. I then later tried to save money and bought the Nikon 55-200 VR, however realized I needed the wide angles for scenic shots. Overall I am happy with this lense.
