Cheap; but thier is a reason...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 11 DC OS HSM Lense for Nikon (Electronics)
I am a amateur and new to DLSR's however I bought this for My Nikon after reading numerous mixed reviews all over the internet. At £280 it was worth a look; considering the Nikon equivalent is £700!
The recommendations suggest this takes a 72mm filter - it doesn't, its the newer 62mm version. Another observation is to adjust the focal length on this lens requires it to be twisted the opposite way to a Nikon lens, very counter intuitive and confusing when trying to adjust focus quickly..
On the plus side it was quick to focus in good light and the HSM is quiet in operation. I just found the pictures a bit blurry compared to the Nikon 18-55mm and 55-300mm lenses I already own and £280 is a lot of money for something which doesn't produce quality, sharp pictures I want to look at over and over again like the Nikon lenses do.

And you gave this one star why? I hope other potential purchasers check the reviews on Amazon.com as this really is a good all round lens for the money for any keen travel photographer.

All in one lens like this one can not compete with two lenses on image quality - not even the Nikon 18-200 lens is as good as the two you have
What you get with this lens is convinience (11 x zoom) and metal mount
I would recommend you try Nikon 18-105 - very good lens however it still comes with a fragile plastic mount (worse than 18-55 as it is much bigger and heavier)

Furthermore, he seems to be criticising the lens for being the new version, and not the previous one which he'd read mixed reviews about. Duh!
