Style Name: Nikon SLR CamerasPackage Type: Standard Packaging
I hesitated purchasing this lens for my Nikon D40X--probably looked at this listing six or seven times before making the purchase. Truthfully I was worried about how inexpensive it is. Now, I'm probably a pretty average amateur photographer in that the majority of my pictures are family stuff: kids' sporting events, vacations, birthdays, and the like. But that doesn't mean I'm willing to compromise on quality just to save some money, and I know that the Nikon 55-200 is a quality lens.

But, I purchased based on Michael Del Priore's review (his was the only review at the time)--I figured, at this price (especially when compared to the Nikon 55-200), why not give it a shot, and I'm glad I did.

This is an excellent lens. The auto focus motor is fast and doesn't chew up the battery (I was concerned about that, but I shot almost 170 pictures at my son's games two Saturdays ago and didn't use any more battery than the Nikon 35-70 lens that came with the camera). Like "cinderoo" I haven't had any stabilization issues to speak of either, even snapping away while following 12 year old boys run the length of a field. That may be more of an issue with macro photography, but I'd imagine most of the (admittedly limited) macro photography I'd do would probably be with a tripod anyway.

Now, no one would mistake me for a professional photographer, but I can tell you that when I pull up photos shot with my D40X and this Sigma lens on my 24" iMac and view them full screen they are *everything* I was looking for when I decided to move to an SLR camera.

Style Name: Canon SLR CamerasPackage Type: Standard Packaging
I just bought this lens yesterday for my Canon T3i/600D at a camera shop on a whim because it was so inexpensive. I am gonna break my review down into four key categories; Image quality, Autofocus Speed and Accuracy, Build Quality, and Value.

Image Quality - 3/5 Stars. Once you buy this lens set your camera on AV or Manual and set your aperture at f/7.1 or f/8 and leave it there! No kidding! This is the sweet spot because images are super soft and soaked in purple fringing from f/4 down to f/6.3 on any shot above 100mm. That being said, I got some duck images at f/8 and 300mm that are awesome! And f/8 gives you plenty of depth at that range. I did have to boost the ISO up to 400 because without image stabilization, you definitely need faster shutter speeds for hand held shots.

Autofocus Speed and Accuracy - 2/5 Stars. The speed is fine but it's not accurate. I have my lens set to manual focus now because looking through the view findwer, I have been more accurate than the autofocus every time. EVERY time! It focuses to a point about 3 to 5 percent closer to you than your target. The grass in front of my duck was tack sharp when I tried to use the autofocus. (This is one reason I should have bought a 5D Mark II. That way I can make Autofocus Microadjustments for each lens.)

Build Quality - 4/5 Stars. No weather sealing but it feels solid and has a metal mount that locks into place firmly, unlike the plasticky Canon 55-250mm. Hey, you don't get weather sealing for $169!!! (p.s. I would still pick the Canon 55-250mm over this lens because of the IS and better performance at f/5.6)

Value - 4/5 Stars. You get the possibility of tack sharp, spot on images and 300mm range for $169!!! I haven't even talked about the Macro function that works great!

I purchased the Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG macro lens for my Nikon D40..the lens has a Built in Motor Drive and does Auto Focus very nicely with the Nikon D40..D40X and D60..
I shoot mostly landscapes, animals, birds, and flowers and have taken some very nice photos with this 70-300mm Telephoto and Macro Lens. This lens does not have Image Stabilization however using the lens without a tripod does not seem to be much of a problem because I have not had many blurred photos..The lens is very reasonably priced for the amateur photographer..

I have shared some of my recent photos that I took using this lens which are posted on this Amazon listing with my review.

The lens shipped immediately by 47th Street Photo and was received in two days.

I highly recommend the Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG Macro Lens.

Style Name: Pentax SLR CamerasPackage Type: Standard Packaging
I wanted a cheap telephoto lens for those times I need the reach. Since I don't use it that often, I felt no need for a large or expensive lens. I debated between this lens, the Tamron 70-300 Di, and the Sigma APO of the same type. This was the cheapest so I went with it. Frankly, I can't believe how good this lens is for its price. At 70mm, it's tack sharp corner to corner. Even 200-300 it's quite good. And the Macro mode is just icing on the cake--1:2 magnification means you can get quite close.

It's true, you need a fair amount of light for this lens to shine--no argument there. But for the individual who only does this sort of stuff for fun, this lens is hard to beat. I can't imagine the APO variant is worth $70 more--I cannot detect any difference from sample pictures posted online. So if you only need a lens of this focal length occasionally, this is the one to get.

So I was the first review for this lense and I have read over a few of the reviews. Please disregard any of the bad comments about this lense. I have owned this lense for quite some time now and it still is a great lense for the buy! You can't beat the price for the quality. I work in Studio and we use Canon 70-200mm f 2.8 lenses that are around $1300 and to me it's a waste if your not shooting indoors when you can spend $140 on a 70-300mm f/4-5.6. I have shot many jobs with this lense and have printed many pictures out. Optics in this lense is amazing. You do not have to use this lense on a tripod at all. I use it hand held in most everything I shoot except long exposures. The only thing that could be slightly difficult is indoor shooting. Overall this lense is good. Not worth the money to invest in a VR lense...Can't even tell the difference.
