Sigma 70300mm f456 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens Nikon AF fit 5A9955 Cameras Camera Accessories
This lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300mm focal length. Excellent performance telephoto zoom lens for digital and 35mm SLR cameras. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm. The minimum focusing distance is 1.5m (59.1 inches) at all zoom settings. We used SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass in this lens for excellent correction of chromatic aberration. It is effectively corrected for fluctuation of aberration due to focusing. Dimensions (Diameter x Length) : 76.6 mm x 122 mm.

For a cheap lens, it has its pros and cons lets start with the cons.
1. It's very loud if you're using the auto focus.
2. If you're looking to do images where you have to aim the camera down. The auto focus ring will creep down time and time again as it has no resistance in manual mode
3. The macro and normal can be tricky at times.
4. The quality of images is average. do not expect high-quality images unless you're shooting from a distance. Close up macro 200-300mm is quite good tho.
1. Really good for close up macro with the right light.
2. Feels nice in the hand and well built
3.Has a nice weight to it
4.I have dropped this license twice now and it's stood up to the challenge.
In short if your have £90 in your pocket burning a hole it's not a bad beginner lens to try out and get used to working with the lense. With the right lighting and a skill with editing you will get use out of this lens more then you think.
- High quality for novice
- Long range zoom
- Macro Setting
-Hmmm... Can't think of any
Overall, I highly recommend this! I bought it to take photos of people windsurfing, and although have not had chance to test it in windy conditions, it is great so far!
the zoom is great and allowed me to get fantastically sharp images and film, of African animals without being eaten. As a result of this lense my documentary looks great.
Having said that I do have some issues...
Firstly the AF is very slow, which can be an issue if you want the shot immediately. and because of the AF lense your SLR can refuse a picture if its not happy with it which can be annoying.
Second, the zoom wheel (for me) was a little stiff making slow zooms when filming a live event, lets say, are somewhat difficult to achieve, although still doable.
but other than these things which shouldn't discourage you if you're on a budget, the lense if a good find.
the lens is great for an entry level individual on a budget, for me however, I would be tempted not to cheap out next time, and get a non AF lens.
After practice this lens is fine and the quality of your film or pics will be great but there are better for a little pricier.
