The lens arrived within 3 days of ordering, as described and even included a protective UV filter, excellent service from supplier. It focuses very fast, and gives a bright viewfinder due to f2.8 aperture. It offers great versatility for; portrait, landscape,shooting in poor lighting conditions and when coupled with the 2x convertor extra reach and 1:1 macro capability. With it being the older model with HSM it works perfectly with my D200 and D3200 Nikon DSLR's. It also works with the Nikon V1 making it a 405mm f2.8 lens at the max zoom setting of 150mm! I love the features of internal zoom and focussing which means there is no extension to the length of the lens at any setting, which allows the f2.8 aperture to be maintained throughout. It also weighs in at half the weight of it's successor. Images are very sharp, I love this lens and yes I would recommend it to anyone spying a DX bargain in this current climate of people offloading to upgrade to FX format.

You may have read other reviews about this lens, which talk about front focussing issues and build quality being poor. I have owned two, and both have been razor sharp and very quick to focus on a Nikon D300 body. The first lens was traded for a longer reach telephoto, but I missed the beautiful colour that this lens gives and replaced it as soon as I could. The f2.8 aperture gives a bright viewfinder image and the internal focus means a well balanced lens, that doesn't change length. Compared to FX sensor F2.8 tele lenses it is outstandingly lightweight too.Remember that this is a 75-225 F2.8 lens on a DX sensor camera! The main reason to use this lens is the quality of image that it gives. Outstanding!

HASH(0x9dfbaa74) out of 5 stars An excellent lens from Sigma 4 Nov. 2006
By Wayne Kuban - Published on Amazon.com

You can read all the "specs" doing a Google search so I won't bore you with the geek-tails. The simple answer is that this lens does as promised. It is a very nice, fast lens, for a reasonable price. If you are in a "No Flash Photography" zone, then this lens will get the job done, providing you can take a few steps back from your subject. I took it out for it's 1st "test drive" last night at the local bowling alley. The shots were taken at night with 100% ambient artificial lighting and with the D200 cranked up to ISO 1600 had no problem pulling in 1/125 to 1/180 Sec. shutter speeds with the Aperture notched down a couple of clicks from wide open. While I have definitely not put it through all the paces as of yet, I do have a couple of notations:

- I like the fact that the lens hood completely covers the focusing ring when reveresed (as in indoor use), yet leaves the zoom ring completely wide open. This makes for very comfortable usage being able to use the full length to steady the camera and having unfettered access to the zoom ring.

- Focus is quick & silent, and I haven't yet experienced any auto-focus "hunting" problems.

- Shots so far appear very acceptable. Please note that although I appreciate amazon's customer photo "samples", they manage to compress & reduce them so much that they lose a great deal of clarity. The images I've taken are much better than the few uploaded here. Bottom line, this lens takes quite nice photos.

- Look & feel is professional & solid, with smooth as silk zoom & focus action. This lens does not "telecope" in and out as do many zooms. It's length remains constant from 50 to 150mm.

- The one and only thing I do not like about this lens (and my other Sigma lenses) is that you cannot remove/install the lens cap when the lens hood is installed for outdoor glare protection. Nikon & Tamron lenses have a center pinch design that allows for easy installation/removal of the caps without removing the lens hood. I wish Sigma would do this as well. Some say you do not need a lens cap on when the hood is installed, but they obviously do not live in a dusty (desert) area. I almost knocked it down to four stars for that, but I'm simply too forgiving...

HASH(0x9de7e078) out of 5 stars smooth (focusing) operator 10 Aug. 2007
By E. K. Arnold - Published on Amazon.com

this lens is interesting for nikon dslr users because it fills a gap in the nikkor product line. it's equivalent to a 75-225 f/2.8 on a 35mm camera. does that excite you? it should.
after having this lens for just over a week and shooting 1,000 pictures at a multiday outdoor music festival, i have to say it's worth every penny.
one minor caveat: the color tone differs a bit from nikon's--it's warmer overall but didn't show any predjudice between reds and blues--so if that bothers you get a nikkor.
complaining about the pinch cap is a little nitpicky IMO. you can access the cap easily with the hood reversed. with the hood on, the lens is ready to be pressed into action, and resistant to dust and dings when shooting outdoors. you should have a uv filter on this at all times for protection anyway.
anyway, this thing rocks. a nice piece of glass, as they say.
its best feature is the IF (internal focus) combined with HSM (hi speed motor). this thing is fast, with a smooth zooming action, going from 50-150 with ease. it has no aperture ring or af/mf switch, which just makes the lines cleaner and smoother. all the goodies are on the inside with this one.
you will be surprised at how versatile it is, handling a variety of photographic situations with ease. with the fast af and low-light capabilities, it's more useful than the much-vaunted 18-200, except for wide-angle pics (for that get the sigma 18-50 f/2.8 or the tamron 17-50 f/2.8 for a killer 2-lens combo). it's especially good at pics with differently-lit subjects at differing focal lengths, capturing different colors in different areas of the pic with impressive attention to contrast and detail.
the build quality isn't tokina at-x or nikon pro, but the ex finish on sigma's pro line is durable and solid. if you want a tank, get the nikkor 70-200, which is almost 3x as much. and weighs a lot more.
pics are sharp, sharp, sharp at f/2.8 across entire range--comparable to nikkor 50 f/1.8--which is really what you buy this for. does very well in real-world shots, although some lab tests have indicated a fall-off in corner to corner sharpness at 150mm. i couldn't really tell, although if i was shooting architecture, i'd probably want a different lens, like a 12-24, anyway. but this lens is more people-friendly than my 12-24.
what else? bokeh is nice, not as creamy as tamron 28-75, but still apparent. and with large aperture, it has good to excellent low and available light performance. you might actually find yourself leaving the speedlite in the bag. for the few times i needed flash, i was able to use the built-in flash with no vignetting.
i use this with a d80, but it will also work on a d40 b/c of the HSM.
overall, one of sigma's best lenses.

I shoot Nikon digital cameras (D70 and D80) and I shoot a lot of nature photos and some sports photos. This lens works as advertised and I have no complaints. It is fast, clear and it seems to work perfectly with my Nikon digital cameras. This lens also works well with the Sigma 1.4x teleconverter.

HASH(0x9de7e774) out of 5 stars Good Value 25 Aug. 2007
By Joseph Coalter - Published on Amazon.com
After quite a bit of research, and after reading many reveiws from owners, I purchased this lens from Amazon. I'm happy with the lens, and Amazon provided a quick delivery. I use the lens on my Nikon D200, which came with the well liked 18-200 VR lens. That lens is very useful, but it is a poor choice for photographing moving objects. For that you need the kind of stop action speed that a 2.8 lens delivers. The effective 75-225 zoom range is very useful for general use, and does an excellent job on kids and animals at moderate distances. With the D200, I can shoot at ISO 400 and 5 frames per second, and I can usually get some keepers of my subject. The moderate weight and size are much appreciated.

HASH(0x9de7e084) out of 5 stars Love it for portraits 19 Feb. 2007
By Daniel Marley - Published on Amazon.com
Sigma has given us the 70-200 for the digital age. With the 1.5 crop factor, a 70-200 just can't go quite wide enough sometimes when you are in a more crowded space. The Sigma weight about half what the 70-200 does. HSM for quick autofocus, works on my D40. 2.8 allows shooting in low light, and throwing the background out of focus. The lens cap is edge-pinch, meaning you can't get it off without taking off the hood. I've taken to replacing Sigma caps with Nikon center-pinch designs. I wish Sigma would fix this - the small things add up. They do include a nice carrying case for the lens, though. My only wish is for image stabilization, but I knew that when I bought the lens, so it's not Sigma's fault. Overall, a keeper.
