I bought this before the filter offer was available so these comments refer to the lens only. I ordered on Thursday afternoon and the lens was delivered first thing on Monday, so top marks for service. In the following five days I have taken 1200 photographs of all kinds to give the lens a good work-out.

Wide open and at 300mm the lens is acceptably sharp for 6"X4"s but needs to be stopped down/pulled in for larger images. Contrast is good. The autofocus is good in well-lit contrasty situations, but tends to "hunt" in less ideal circumstance. The auto-focus is clearly audible 20 feet away so wild-life enthusiasts will need to focus manually.

Macro claims are a bit optimistic! I'm a disabled, wheel-chair user and a "normal" macro lens isn't always feasible for me. That said, my old Sigma 90mm macro easily out-performs this. This is useful only if you would otherwise miss the shot and to call it a macro is a bit optimistic.

The other thing that concerns me is build quality. It feels a bit plasticky and I can't see it lasting a long time (I have a 36 years old PrinzGalaxy that is still in pristine condition).

I'd give this a conditional thumbs up. If you're on a budget and need a decent telephoto lens it's fine. If you've got pots of money and know a good hernia-transplant clinic save up for a Nikkor.

Three months later and my respect for this lens has grown. It is the lens I have on the camera most often and it compares well with my Nikon 18-200mm (cost three times as much) and the much hyped Nikon 50mm f1.8.

At the price, it's a steal! I'm just glad it's not a Nikon because I wouldn't be able to afford it!

I bought this lens because we were going bear watching on our honeymoon and i couldn't afford a Nikon versions.

I was nervous about the comments reguarding it's noisiness, but this proved to be no problem at all. none of the bears or birds were scared of and to be honest it wasn't that noisy.

I got some excellant shots in all light conditions and it stood up to getting a bit of rain of it too. ( i did dry it immediately and carefuly)

OK it's got no VR function but to be honest i used it with a monopod so it doesn't really matter.

the Macro function is also very useful too.

I recommend this lens very highly

A tad heavy but easy to use both in manual and automatic mode. I used it on a cruise in the caribbean recently and proved to be just what I needed to photograph passing birds, flying fish and other wildlife.

I brought this on the 21st and it had arrived today! Quick delivery! Well packed!!
I was more than glad it actually works for my nikon D60!!!
I did buy one from another company e-bay and it didint work as there was no motor but they didint say it would work on some cameras so had to return it back for refund.
I cam across to amazon and brough it. It was a lot cheaper then I brought from ebay!!!
Its actually works and grateful I've brought it! Ive taken a lot of photos so far and they came out so great!!
I would say its worth the money!!
My sister got Nikon D40 and it works on her camera as well so we both are sharing this lens.

I received this package yesterday, and have been using it for several hours now. I read some of the earlier reviews, and cant quite understand the criticism, when you factor in price as well. I am by no means a professional photographer, but i enjoy taking pictures and this lens for me is perfect value for money. Its noisy on automatic mode, but with manual its fine. To really enjoy this lens I would recommend using manual mode anyways, and its quite easy to figure out, even for non-experienced photographers. I tested on automatic mode as well, and it seems to have a hard time finding the object (im using a Nikon D60). But as said, manual works great, and for a non-pro its a great buy.

Great product, the only down side is the constant changing of lenses if you do a mix of photography as when traveling. I have since replaced this with an 18-270mmTamron which is a real all in one. However for close ups with a tripod or when doing a range of similar shoots the Sigma is still a fantastic lense and at this price is well worth it.

Works well with my D3000 and D5100. I lent it to my friend who was a bit more critical - he said it was noisy compared to his Nikon lens but then that was a lot more expensive. I have noticed the Macro Switch sticks now and again, but overall I am pleased with this lens
