5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money, 17 April 2009
I've only had this lens for a couple of days, but so far I've been really impressed with the picture quality. I'm new to using Digital SLRs, and currently have a Nikon D60, with the 17-55mm standard kit lens. The sigma lens comes with a macro facility between 200-300mm, which so far has given great picture quality and detail, even without a tripod (although a tripod would definitely be recommended as the lens and camera together are quite heavy). I'm planning to use the lens for some nature photography, and for the money, I think this is a great buy, particularly if you're new to digital photography and are not keen on spending hundreds of pounds on lenses. The autofocus also works well, and is not too loud for nature photographs (although the manual focus is easy to use if the noise is a concern). If you are an experienced photographer, then the difference between an expensive 70-300mm lens and this one may be obvious, but for a beginner, I couldn't fault this piece of kit so far. Also, the distributor, 47th St Photo, is excellent, service is really fast and efficient.
