- I like the fact that the lens hood completely covers the focusing ring when reveresed (as in indoor use), yet leaves the zoom ring completely wide open. This makes for very comfortable usage being able to use the full length to steady the camera and having unfettered access to the zoom ring.
- Focus is quick & silent, and I haven't yet experienced any auto-focus "hunting" problems.
- Shots so far appear very acceptable. Please note that although I appreciate amazon's customer photo "samples", they manage to compress & reduce them so much that they lose a great deal of clarity. The images I've taken are much better than the few uploaded here. Bottom line, this lens takes quite nice photos.
- Look & feel is professional & solid, with smooth as silk zoom & focus action. This lens does not "telecope" in and out as do many zooms. It's length remains constant from 50 to 150mm.Read more ›
after having this lens for just over a week and shooting 1,000 pictures at a multiday outdoor music festival, i have to say it's worth every penny.
one minor caveat: the color tone differs a bit from nikon's--it's warmer overall but didn't show any predjudice between reds and blues--so if that bothers you get a nikkor.
complaining about the pinch cap is a little nitpicky IMO. you can access the cap easily with the hood reversed. with the hood on, the lens is ready to be pressed into action, and resistant to dust and dings when shooting outdoors. you should have a uv filter on this at all times for protection anyway.
anyway, this thing rocks. a nice piece of glass, as they say.
its best feature is the IF (internal focus) combined with HSM (hi speed motor). this thing is fast, with a smooth zooming action, going from 50-150 with ease. it has no aperture ring or af/mf switch, which just makes the lines cleaner and smoother. all the goodies are on the inside with this one.
you will be surprised at how versatile it is, handling a variety of photographic situations with ease. with the fast af and low-light capabilities, it's more useful than the much-vaunted 18-200, except for wide-angle pics (for that get the sigma 18-50 f/2.8 or the tamron 17-50 f/2.8 for a killer 2-lens combo). it's especially good at pics with differently-lit subjects at differing focal lengths, capturing different colors in different areas of the pic with impressive attention to contrast and detail.
the build quality isn't tokina at-x or nikon pro, but the ex finish on sigma's pro line is durable and solid.Read more ›
