I am already a big fan of Sigma lenses and instantly fell in love with their 10-20 super wide angle but that's another story. Sigma has a reputation for designing and building extremely good lenses but only their more expensive ones. There are a few Sigma 'Budget' lenses I wouldn't poke with a dirty stick. Fortunately this lens falls into an all together different category, not too expensive but amazing none the less.
I needed a long range zoom (Not too long, just good enough for candid portraits and some wildlife stuff). Firstly, the build is amazing. It has a nice textured finish and has enough weight to it to know it's quality glass (Maybe even heavy for some people). Overall it's an extremely pleasant lens to hold and feels good in the hands.
Optically, it's amazing. Nice creamy bokeh, sharp images, nice contrast and no soft areas (As far as I can find). Focusing is a little stiff but that's what you want with a new lens because they always will loosen a little with use so if it's too loose when you buy it, it's only going to get looser. The auto focus is smooth on manual but a little noisy on auto. Not annoyingly so, but if you are trying to take covert, private detective photos hiding in a bush, you're going to sound like Optimus Prime trying to play hide and seek...with Asthma.
The only other 'Dislike' is the internals rattle a little when off the camera and the optical stabilizer is disengaged. Not a biggy, just be aware this is not a fault and is normal and you shouldn't be shaking it around too much anyway. After all, it's a precision piece of kit and needs to be treated with care. All glass does.
Personally, I highly recommend this lens for both the professional and amateur alike so long as your expectations are realistic for a lens you don't have to remortgage your house to buy.
This lens way exceeded my expectations. It is not too big, and only extends less than two inches when zoomed out. It is not a HSM lens, so it will make some noise when it focuses, but it is certainly not loud.
It balances well on the SD15, and the optical image stabilization is excellent, giving 3 or more F-stop advantage. It focuses pretty fast on the SD15, but it did hunt on occasion.
To my delight the lens is sharp wide open at both ends. It is at least as sharp as the excellent Fuji XF 55-200mm lens, which I had on my Fuji X-T10 system.
There is not much CA to speak of, but I did notice a small amount of purple fringing on some high contrast pictures (which is mostly non-existent otherwise).
Overall this is an excellent lens for the Sigma DSLR cameras.
It's small and light for a 300mm zoom, and it works perfectly. Great sharpness, quick and accurate focus, and rock-steady OS. At a bit more than $300 - the sale price I paid - it is the deal of the decade for those who need a small, light and very good long zoom lens.
To keep the price low on a product, the manufacturer can either skimp on the overall quality, or forego some of the bells and whistles that aren't needed for everyday shooting. For this lens, Sigma took the latter route. Some of the usual things like a focus lock and lens lock are not included, but they aren't really needed. The zoom stays put, and doesn't slip when the lens is pointed down, so a lock is not needed.
Give it a try. You can always get a refund if it's not what you expected.
Pro's: Great focal range
Produces crisp clear images
Cons: Zoom ring can be a bit stiff
Autofocus is slow
I shoot with a Nikon D90 and all of my other lenses are Nikon so I was a little hesitant to go outside of my 'normal brand' but didn't want to spend thousands of dollars on a lens. Most of the shooting I've done with this lens has been in bright light and I've found the AF response impressively fast, even at full zoom. No issues to date. Overall great purchase and amazing lens for the money.
