Product Description

Style: Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

This compact high-performance telephoto zoom lens incorporates Sigma’s own Optical Stabilizer function. The lens incorporates SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass in the front lens groups and is equipped with an inner focusing system to provide high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. The incorporation of HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high-speed auto focus. The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function effectively eliminates the effects of camera shake so subjects can be easily and clearly seen in the viewfinder as well as in the image. It allows the use of shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than normal for steady, handheld photography. For Sony and Pentax mounts the built-in OS System allows the photographer to see the stabilized image in the viewfinder and can be used as an alternative with cameras having built-in image stabilization. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides high contrast images throughout the entire zoom range. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 43.3inches (110cm) throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4.5. An inner focusing system eliminates front lens rotation, making it suitable for use with circular polarizing filters.

I am writing this review for all the " Newbies" out there owning a Nikon D3100 who gets tired of the supplied kit lens since it cannot make additional " Reach " for subjects. This review also goes for people who have written, writes, and will be writing reviews for lenses that details the specifications of this lense as compared to "high-priced" lenses. You keep on whining BLAH BLAH BLAH! Save us from our precious time and if you have the money, go buy the high-priced lenses. That is pretty much simple. You all well know that at this price-range it is highly leaning on consumer and pr0-sumer markets. If you are a "pro" then go with high-end lenses,i'm sure you are making enough money with your photography. Also, perhaps you would like to add what kind of Camera Body or even just the model type of your DSLR so that future neophytes will have a better idea if this lense or whatever kind of lense will support the functions of their DSLR body.
First question, will this lense 'auto-focus" with my Nikon D3100. The answer is YES! It has the HSM feature which is actually a counterpart of the Nikon's AF-S. It does also have an inner motor which produces sharp and quick "auto-focus". It does auto-focus on a Nikon D3100. Second, will it support Vibartion Reduction feature? The answer is YES! It has the Optical Stabilization ( OS ) feature which is a counterpart of Nikon's VR. The OS feature of this lense is well appreciated in longer focal lengths with poor stability positioning as it reduces camera shake amplified in the lense. Third question, will it fit in Nikon's D3100 F mount? The answer is YES! It definitely fits! It has also the SLD feature ( a thing with how the optics are made whatever!) which produces high and quality images. The Nikon's counterpart for this is the ED.

Style Name: Canon Digital SLR Cameras
These were the things that I noticed first about this lens. I do professional work
and although I own several Canon L lenses I'm always looking for that hidden gem
that most pros miss because of price, etc. I like having a lightweight mid range zoom
and this little lens fits the bill.

I have owned this lens for well over a year and waited to write this review after I had put this
lens through the paces. I shoot Nature and Travel photographs. Both of these venues can be
hard on lenses, though I don't abuse my gear lenses get changed often and I'm not always in
the best environments for me or my gear.

BUT optically it is really a Gem.
Build quality is not bottom of the barrel either. It has a good metal mount and though it's
made of plastic, Note - even some Canon L lenses have many plastic components, but it's
the tough stuff ( Canon 17-40mm L, Canon 24-105mm L, Canon 70-200mm F4 IS L, and
even the Canon 100-400mm IS L ). I know this from personal experience. In the field
if you do this kind of work long enough you learn to make lens repairs where there are NO
facilities.

So, when someone starts dissing a lens because of plastic, you want to know what KIND of
plastic and the Sigma 50-200 OS I consider to have above average plastic construction.
Not pro-grade, but really, for $160, are you really going to have a cow that it doesn't stand
up to L grade lens abuse?

This lens does have multiple barrel sleeves when zooming out. That is something to consider
if you are planning to use this lens in inclement weather.

Sigma has delivered very good product in this segment, much better than the cheapo 55-250mm from Canon. Good build, nice features (HSM, IS, IF design). And the lens is sharp in lower focal lengths and good bokeh. Only downside is that the lens is not sharp at longer focal lengths, but still very usable.

Style Name: Sigma Digital SLR Cameras Verified Purchase
Sigma 50-200 OS is a good budget lens yet I'm still trying to push it to it's optimum capabilities. I own three Sigma lenses, two are DC lenses while the EX out preforms my others in detail clarity only when enlarged. Focus is quick, focus and zoom rings are smooth but I wish the sharpness was better during an enlargement compared to my Sigma EX lens. Nikon 55-200VR seems to be a tad sharper gaining more details of the image when enlarged yet they are about the same size, Sigma better built. I wish both zooms had a closer minimum focus range. The OS (optical Stabilizer) is iffy, sometimes it works fine while other times there is very slight double imaging blur even when the shutter speed seems adequate @ 1/250-1/320th @200mm with OS on while sometimes I get great images at crazy slow shutter speeds down to 1/10th of a second hand held with OS. I found F-16 @ 200mm and F-11 @ 50mm is it's sweet spot otherwise for standard images it doesn't matter. I love my Sigma's yet I will stick with the EX grades from now on.

I just bought this lens for my D5000 and it is great! The picture quality, focus speed, and size is comparable with the Nikon 55-200 f/4-5.6 VR, but for half the price and with a metal mounting plate! Also, its about 1/4 the price of the new Nikon 55-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR lens which is bigger, heavier, and it focus speed is very, very slow. This lens is a great companion to the Sigma 18-50 f/2.8-4.5 OS HSM lens, which I have and like as well.

There are plenty of reviews talking about the picture quality of this lens, so I just want to add something different that others have missed talking about, which is the design of the lens hood. The hood was designed to be a part of the lens and actually used with the lens, not just a afterthought or add-on bonus. It has the same finish of the lens, and it fits perfectly on the lens when in use and when it is backwards for storage. The way the lens is tapered towards the end allows the hood to be stored on the lens and not stick out. This keeps the lens compact when being stored. I have posted a couple pictures to show what I am talking about.

Overall, this is a great lens. Don't let the low price scare you away from buying it, just take advantage of it!
