This is a beautiful piece of equipment! I bought it for use with my Nikon D3000 and I have been very impressed with the results. Yes there are limitations to what it can do but once you understand its limits you can produce some high quality images. I will mention the situations in which the lens struggles:

- the auto-focus tends to search in low-light indoor situations.
- using the macro function indoors will require use of a tripod.
- the motor noise will seem quite loud in indoor situations.

So, once you stop attempting to photograph extremely small things in your dimly lit room without a tripod you'd be fine in all other situations.

The lens performs beautifully outdoors. I've got some fantastic images photographing sports and wildlife. Yes, in both these situations you will require some anticipation and experience to produce the best images. But the lens will not disappoint. Excellent color, sharpness, focus! This lens will make you got out and look for things to shoot!

I originally purchased a Nikon D40 which came with the 18-55mm kit lens, which i have to admit is an amazing camera. You can see my review for it here.(http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A2WCNP087X10O8/ref=cm_cr_pr_auth_rev?ie=UTF8&sort_by=MostRecentReview) However, i only paid £250.00 through amazon at the time! This lens was bought to act as an upgrade in those situations where my 18-55 didnt have enough 'reach' and/or when i wanted the macro function my Nikon 55-200MM F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX Black Lens doesn't have! The lens itself is quite heafty (its about 550g, nothing major but a lot given the size of the camera), and when fully extended in macro mode quite long as well, especially with the hood attached. However, it does ship as standard with the plastic lens hood, both caps and a sigma travel case/pouch, all of which are of reasonable quality. The lens itself feels relatively well made, and does have a metal mount. The zoom ring is smooth throughout, as is the focussing (when manual is selectted) and the macro switch is easily engaged/disengaged. Since the D40 doesnt have a built-in motor, it is important the lens had it. This does. Whilst it is not the fastest or quietest motor in the world, for the price it is quick and quiet enough. The same can be said for the image quality. Images are always sharp and focussed with good colour replication. Also, given this is the APO version there is no chromatic aboration, which is the problem i found with the tamron 70-300 alternative. Overall, i am pleased with the lens and have attached some sample shots (test ones) in the gallery section on here. (more can be found on my website at [...] I have only given 4 and not 5 stars because it is not perfect. There is some softening at 300mm for example, but that said, for the money, it is in my opinion, as perfect as you are going to get.

I bought this lens second-hand from Amazon to use with my Nikon D40 not really expecting stunning results from a non-Nikkor lens, I was pleasantly surprised.

I've recently returned to stills photography having spent nearly 15 years with video so I was in two minds whether to go for a Canon 50D and 100-400mm zoom or start low-budget and work up. I still don't know whether I made the right decision but I do know the results I've had with this lens for birds in flight photos need to be seen to be believed.

Apart from the annoying habit of the camera defaulting to left side focussing and the sticking macro problem I can't really fault it for the price. Macro is not great, for insect photography I get better results from the standard lens and cropped images though I've experimented with hoverflies in flight (Volucella pellucens) with reasonable results on manual focus albeit with a high deletion rate!

I use my camera mainly on aperture priority giving the highest shutter speed for the light conditions so VR and the additional price wouldn't be justified. APO is well worth paying extra for with no colour fringing on any of my pics which is also a nice surprise and it's light enough to carry around with the rest of my gear.

In summary, an excellent lens for the money, I'm looking to upgrade the camera body and keep the lens. The autofocus is fast in good light but don't let it focus until your subject is close enough and don't even think about buying a non-autofocus lens. It's black - don't you just hate those cream Canon lenses? And it has enough reach for most conditions bearing in mind it's equivalent to a 450mm lens on a (Nikon) DSLR.Nikon D40 with AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II

There are some complaints on reviews about the macro switch on this lens being annoying and finicky. I guess there are people who'll be using this largely for macro shots, but I've found myself never really switching over to do so. What I bought this for is the zoom. For wild life shots and city shots so very rarely do I need to shorten the focus. I've only actually used the macro switch when I've been playing around. The OS however I do miss, I've noticed the difference between hand held shots taken with this lens and the stock DX lens by nikon that came with my camera. If you're looking for something that you might take on a night out where it'll be dark and you won't want to be setting up a tripod might be worth splashing a few extra pounds to get something with OS. I've already been thinking of trading this in at the camera shop to upgrade to something that has.
