Pros: Very Compact size and weight; Smart new 'Contemporary' design and appearance; Price; 3 Year extended warranty, Pleasant zoom action; 'Close Focus' ability; small 62mm filters; Zoom lock

Cons: Back focusing issues (complex and untreatable); slow f6.3 at 200mm; OS does not give confidence; manual focus can only be engaged by disengaging AF on both lens and camera, vague and imprecise action. Lens coatings and contrast not up to Nikon standards.

Opinion: Very good price new (but still more than Tamron) to replace my old and rather tatty and not nice to use Nikkor 18-200mm VR Mk1, which I sold, whilst there was some value in it. I decided that even the Mk 2 Nikkor is basically the same optical configuration as the 2005 Mk1 and that Sigma, with its up to date Contemporary range might well compete favourably, if not exceed Nikon's aged offering, now. Whilst the Contemporary Sigma does not have the high contrast and punch of the Nikkor, it still is sharp and detailed at lower focal lengths. Despite some difficulty getting properly sharp results in dull, flat lighting at 200mm with the Sigma, in good light it is sharp enough throughout the focal range. However, the real problem was a hard to diagnose back focusing issue, but whilst I eventually dialled in -12 into the D7100's 'AF Fine Tune' data bank, this figure was only applicable at 200mm and focus was visibly 'out' by zooming out to 135mm, getting more and more out as the focal length widened. I wasted a lot of good shots at longer lengths previous to this as when the focus was set at default and at 18mm, this was correct. In the end, the only true way I could get reliable sharp focus was to focus manually and this lens is NOT designed for such, with the rather dark long end and loose manual focus ring. It was suggested that I would have to buy the Sigma USB Dock to correct this issue but I do not have any issues with my excellent 17-70mm f2.8-4 Contemporary and my Sigma Art 30mm f1.4 had an simple issue that was easily correctable, so I refused to pay an extra 15-20% for a gadget that I would potentially only use the once (and the shop did not stock it anyway). So, I insisted that the lens was not suitable for purpose and demanded a refund. I did get some nice images from it though and when it worked properly, the zoom and handling was good. I also found the OS system did not seem to hold the image steady at all, though it seemed to be working, which at 200mm can be usueful simply for composition. The lens' light weight, compared to the extra 150g of the Nikkor meant initially some camera shake, despite the OS, as I was simply too optimistic in its abilities. IF you can find a good example, then potentially, this might be a great lens, but for the more serious and advanced photographer, perhaps the excellent price/features ratio is just too high a demand to compete favourably with the more than twice the price Nikon. My option is now a used Mk2 Nikkor or more likely, a more modern design, albeit lower specification and possibly more suited to the D7100 sensor, the now popular 18-140mm. As it is, my need for such a lens is less to do with just using one lens but to bridge the gap between my Nikkor 10-24mm and Sigma 150-500mm. I initially awarded (which I cannot withdraw) a score of 9/10 but with the issues I encountered, I can now only offer 6/10.

Pros: Great steady stability from 18 to 200 at TA, construction, dimensions, price ratio, stabilization, bokeh, compatible with the Sigma Dock USB

Cons: Not detectable for a Superzoom

Opinion: I needed a superzoom for light outputs to match my fix kit and zoom 2.8. Obviously, you can not take the quality of fixed and zoom from this little excursion to this kind of goal. But this optic has not succeeded, moreover, as well as all the Sigma A, C and S optics. It has excellent clarity at all openings and all focuses and the stabilizer is excellent. The construction is great, the smoothness of the rings is very pleasant, the keys are very sharp, the hood is great. All this in the size of an 18-55. What to say highly advised, my had the correct maf. For the sake of taking it I compared it to Sigma 18-300 C: Bigger and Heavy, Fear of 300mmrn-Nikon 18-200 VR or VR II Micromax: Lower Image Quality, Printable Quality.

Pros: Versatility, good definition and crisp even in complex, light and well built but not sealed. Beautiful colors. Good price.

Cons: Some aberrations and 200mm few pictures I was not convinced.

Opinion: I wanted a lens that had a good value for money and I found it. To read and outputs without being so much to ponder and disassemble objectives, rather than big money spender in bridge or compact high board I preferred this for my nikon d300 and I was not disappointed. Having only fixed I was a bit "tired". Small lightweight fast in focus beautiful colors and beautiful detail even in close-up shots. Some aberrations at all openings and in critical light conditions and 200mm few photos was not quite clear, in that range of focal length is not simple. Promoted, also for the good price and quality.

Pros: I bought this lens a few days and I must say it is giving me satisfaction for the sharpness and speed of focus

Cons: is not weather sealed

Opinion: I think the Sigma 18-200 F3.5-6.3 II DC with this OS has done a great job of research. I thought that there were only those Canon (like quality ') instead of me I had to change his mind. I highly recommend everyone to provarlo.rnPS anke I was lucky having found the last sale in the window of a large retailer in a shopping center at a price speciale.rnQuesto I bought maybe is the latest version than the picture, because is imprinted II HSM.

Pros: Color reproduction, stabilization, sharpness above average and price

Cons: If I have to find fault, does not have the full time MF

Opinion: I purchased this light for a second kit lighter and practical, use this lens on a Canon 7D when I visit the city or travel where there are the possibilities of being able to make changes in that given its optical zoom range gives me the opportunity to seize several details. Things I have impressed are two, first stabilize very effective and precise, the second is the sharpness unthinkable for a lens in its class, the images appear more defined and the photos are not mixed in the background plus playback Color is really good even at 200mm (considered that I shot mostly in RAW) .rnIn truth I was very skeptical about the quality of these objectives handyman, but I must say that with the Sigma series Contemporary has made great strides, along with this perspective I also bought the USB Dock which gave me the opportunity to download the latest fimware available, also you can also make fine adjustments AF directly coNo program Sigma.rnIn nutshell if you want a view to travel or to stay still occasionally lighter recommend this Sigma that surely will give you file really beautiful !!!!
