Pros: Solid construction, sharpness, focal, focus precision, large front lens, lock button, reliability versatility, lens hood

Cons: lack of stabilization, 2.8 only 17mm ... nuts that easily consume (typical sigma) focus cumbersome but fast

Opinion: I come from a sigma 18-50 who still regret, although it has given me a lot of satisfaction, after his "disappearance" I decided to buy this model (now old) but that does its duty, excellent sharpness, very comfortable focal , especially for travel .... focus a little noisy but fast, very precise if you only use the central point! in this version unfortunately it lacks the stabilization, but this does not matter much, though the previous sigma I never utilizzata.rn

Pros: Precise, bright, sharp and strong. Excellent build quality.

Cons: AF a bit 'cumbersome and noisy.

Opinion: Lens that I use often is coupled to a D7000 that a D300 with excellent results. Much better performance than the 18-70 Nikon AF S DX that I had tried previously. The image stabilization is not done and regret in not very favorable light conditions also performs its job very well. I use it to take pictures of landscapes and architectural contexts with great satisfaction.

Pros: Excellent lens according to the quality / price ratio, unless you can not find a target without defects (see below)

Cons: Quality control does not exist: I had to change two lenses and lens defects tararne a third

Opinion: I bought this lens to replace the kit lens (which looked like a bottom of the bottle), but unfortunately I had to replace it 2 times because of really poor yield (euphemism) in the edge of the frame: even at small apertures f / 14 the picture was literally crushed. The third example however, exempt from this type of problem, suffered from front focus: in this case I was calibrated (under warranty) from Sigma, but the shipping costs were still against me. If you're lucky enough (but you should not talk about luck ...) to buy a lens born well, then I must say that this lens as a whole is really good, also saw the price, but given the ordeal I went through advice you can try before you buy this lens.

Pros: Versatility and robustness.

Cons: AF noisy

Opinion: I bought it to replace the 18-55 standard kit with the 400D and I have never regretted the choice. Bright enough, I find that the quality of the greater versatility. A small handyman who obviously is not very good but you need to learn and experiment with different types of photographic genre, from macro to landscapes. Pecca a bit of sharpness.

Pros: Objective cheap for the quality that has, quite light, strong, bright and generous as focal lengths available

Cons: Lack of stabilizer (old model), focusing slow and noisy

Opinion: Very interesting lens for the brightness and overall yield. I took it to the focal light as photographer also astronomical subjects. I found it very good, the picture quality has ever made me regret not buying (I also superior to some Canon lenses, the focal much off) ...
