    Great value for the money for a walk around lens, May 20, 2012
    By 
    BruceB (Louisville, Kentucky United States) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I bought this lens with a little trepidation, b/c of so much Sigma bashing going on out there, and its extended aperture to 6.3. However, I have other “good” lenses for specialized situations for my D7000, and didn’t want to spend the money on Nikons 18-200 just for what I considered to be a general, walk around lens, so I tried the Sigma. (Just so you know I am not cheap per se when it comes to lenses, I also have the Nikon 16-35 VR; 24-120 VR; 105mm DC; 105mm VR macro; 50mm 1.4; 85 mm 1.8; and 80-200 2.8.)

    The first time I used it was for a train event yesterday, which involved a whole lot of shooting variety: outdoor garden trains; train sets set up in basements; a toy train museum; a real train museum; and a real train ride. And I came home and pored over the images, trying to find fault. I did find a few minor faults in sharpness in some pictures, but, not having a Nikon 18-200 to compare it against, I don’t know if those were any different than the Nikon would put out, or just the way it is with a 18-200 lens in that situation (for example, some of the shots were in a basement shooting at iso 6400, no flash. Some were of moving toy trains outside. So some of the lack of sharpness in some of the shots could very well be what you are going to get with a do it all lens zoomed out to 200mm in that situation.)

    But, other shots, like in daylight, at reasonable iso’s, were tack sharp. And going through the pics, there was not one that I could say was unusable (at least b/c of the lens).

    Then today, I did a test shot against my Nikon 25-120 VR in the kitchen, with one of the Department 56 buildings above the cabinet, at 120 mm, no flash. And side by side in LIghtroom, I could not tell the difference. And even 100% zoomed in, I could tell only the tiniest difference, and only b/c I was looking for it (which I actually hoped I would, with a $400 lens vs a $1000 lens!)

    So basically, I have looked for every reason to send this lens back and buy a Nikon, but so far, I just can’t find one, other than that nagging feeling in the back of my mind of “missing out” by not having the Nikon. I seriously think that sometimes people, like me, get caught up in fretting whether a third party lens is good enough, and end up buying a Nikon just for peace of mind, if nothing else.

    But I have had to remind myself, I only bought this lens not for absolute perfection, but just so I could have a decent lens without having to change lenses for basic shots, and that sometimes (and maybe even most of the time), when it comes to travel, family shots, etc., “good enough” really IS good enough. After all, once I send these pictures to Walgreen’s to be printed out as 5×7 prints, and they come back and go into an album and they get looked at maybe 2 or 3 times in the next 50 years, does it really matter which lens I had? Probably not.

    Also, this new found consideration. The D7000 was to replace my D700/28-300VR combo which was stolen a few weeks ago in Seattle. (BTW – I hope the people who stole my camera, and anyone who buys it knowing it is hot, die a slow and painful death. But I digress.) But never again am I traveling anywhere with my very best equipment just for taking glorified snapshots. So if something happens to a $400 Sigma lens instead of a $900 Nikon lens, I know I will sleep much better that night than I did after I found thousands of dollars worth of equipment gone from the trunk of my car.

    So bottom line to me is, is it perfect? No. Do I expect any 18-200 zoom to be perfect? No. But for a very good lens of convienence, I can’t see spending over twice as much for the Nikon.

    Amazing lens for the money., May 10, 2012
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    First of all, if you are an advanced photographer, please don’t look at my review. I was just looking for an affordable lens that I can carry all the time instead of exchanging lens on a regular basis. I have a Nikon D3100 with the kit lens 18-55mm. The kit lens is very good, but my son started to play soccer and I realized that I needed something else. I looked at the price of the Nikor 18-200mm and it was way beyond my budget. I looked at this lens and I saw that it is kind of new in the market. I only found 3 reviews from Canon owners, but I did not think that was a big deal since Canon is also a top notch brand name. The lens are just a little bigger and heavier than the kit lens which is awesome. I am extremely happy with the pictures. The pictures from the soccer games look great. The OS system equivalent to the VR system for Nikon lenses works just fine. I have taken pictures in every single range from 18mm to 200mm and I could not be more pleased with the results. The pictures at the 18-55mm range are as good as the ones taken with the kit lens if not better. Pictures at the 200mm range sometimes look a little bit blurry, but based on what I have read this is normal for these telephotos. I have also recorded videos and the AF function works perfect as well. From time to time if there is not enough light, the AF works slowly, but it is not a big deal for me. If you are an amateur photographer and don’t want to expend a lot of money, you should consider this lens for sure.
