All I have been waiting for this lens for quite some time. Finally Sigma released it and I received it 2 weeks ago. Let me tell you it is a fantastic lens. Tamron and Sigma are finally catching up with Nikon and Canon. They are actually offering pro like lens to DX shooters with optical stabilization. It is strange that Nikon and Canon are just ignoring this market. The images I have taken are razor sharp wide open at all focal lenghts. Bokeh is almost as creamy as my Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8 VRI. I shoot a D7000 - D3200 - D700. Forget about brand names and save some $$$.

Bottom Line:
One of the best lenses I have used, and I have used a lot.

Pros:
Sharp at all apertures and focal lengths across the entire frame. No problem out-resolving the D7000. Worst is at 150 mm in the corners where it is still at a very good to excellent level.

Distortion is well controlled, CA is well controlled, the lens is just amazing.

Image stabilization is highly effective, but it is louder than what I am used to with Nikon lenses giving a clunk when it engages/disengages.

This is finally the pro level lens that DX shooters have been wanting.

Autofocus is fast and accurate. End-to-end time is a bit long (about 1 second) but small adjustments are very rapid. The lens has a long way to go end-to-end with no focus limiter.

Cons:
The only con I have is the lens is very large and heavy (1445 g with hood, front cap, and tripod foot, about 250 g less for just the lens), however the performance is so good for this lens that size and weight are irrelevant for wedding/portrait/professional work.

Verified Purchase
I do not review products very much, but I just had to for this.

I am really loving this lens. It is crazy sharp even wide open. Got it with a D7000 and shot a wedding for my Brother-in-law last weekend.
It is noticeably sharper than my nikon 50mm 1.4G at 2.8 (which is why I am selling that now)

Autofocus was great, the reception hall was really dark with just some accent lights and string lights on the ceiling.

The only down fall is that it is a bit heavy. I'm 6'4 210lbs and in decent shape. By the end of the night shooting with only this lens, my wrists were getting a little uncomfortable.

Choices: this lens, a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II AF-S, or the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS. The latter two can be a bit out of one's financial reach (Nikon much more than Sigma). Reviews regarding the Sigma 50-150 are, overall, positive. Along with the better price, the 50-150 is a DX format lens. Those with a DX may wish to consider that point.

The Sigma 50-150 is quite sharp and clear throughout its entire range, though pushed to 150 the corners are not always as crisp, but clean up pretty well in Photoshop, if needed. Very little if any Chromatic Aberration (CA) or Distortion to speak of, which speaks highly of Sigma's quality control. The bokeh (out-of-focus) and the depth of field this lens delivers are good by pretty much any standard.

The auto focus operates rather quickly, though perhaps not quite as fast, nor as quiet, as my Nikon 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX. The 50-150 glass rarely hunts for the subject, unless there is virtually no contrast between the subject and the rest of the background. That, however, is a problem with virtually any lens. The minimum focusing distance of the 50-150 is 31.5 inches (80 cm) vs 54 inches (1.4m) for the Nikon 70-200.

Sigma's Optical Stabilization (OS), their version of Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR), operates almost as good as the VR on my 18-300, though when the lens is engaging the sound is more noticeable than Nikon. Is it a big distraction? No, not really. It's just different.

I use this lens on D7000 and so far it works great out of the box.

Like:
- Very sharp lens wide open (f/2.8)
- I prefer 50mm end more than 70mm (70-200) - more versatile for indoor/event
- Tripod collar - well design, easy to use
- build quality - seems well-made, zoom ring is smooth
- OS is effective and quiet
- HSM focus is fast, accurate and quiet
- Image quality is superb, comparable to some prime lenses' quality that I own (85/50/35.) Color & contrast are very nice, bokeh is pleasing.
- Very good for low light (with D7000)

Don't Like much:
- It's a bit heavy and long (comparing to the old model without OS/VR) so it's not a "walk-around" lens. With the hood on, it's REALLY long!!
- Price - at about $950, it's on the high end spectrum -- although I think it's fairly reasonable for such a lens (OS/VR + f/2.8 + 50-150mm range)
- Tripod collar can be in the way sometimes

Some perspectives on size and weight:
* Nikon 70-200mm VR II is 87mm x 205.5mm; weighs 1,540g
* Sigma 70-200mm OS is 86.4 x 198.1mm; weighs 1,430g
* Sigma 50-150mm OS is 86.4mm x 197.6mm; weighs 1,340g
* Sigma 50-150mm II (older version) is 76.5mm x 140.2 mm and weighs 780g

I haven't tested for any CA, just mostly indoor shots. I think it's an outstanding lens for DX shooters. Good range, great for low light and it's really sharp.

Overall, I would give this lens a 4.5 stars (minus 1/2 star for compromising the size & weight.) Highly recommend.
