Opinion:I took it in November, used it because it was new to rib a bit. I took about a thousand shots and some photographs are spectacular! The painful notes: while I was doing a service for a baptism he started to make a strange noise and I realized that it was the stabilizer. I basically took pictures without the stabilizer working. For thefts to I had left the two-year warranty and now is in service. I thank Rce foto for the friendliness and professionalism. I will have to wait about twenty days.
Pros:image quality, e.g. sharpness. Bokeh, AF, stabilizer, build quality.
Cons:nothing, despite the weight the lens is manageable
Opinion:we use lens for Nikon APSC (D-7200 and D-5500) for landscapes and portraits. We are very happy with the quality of the image and the speed of the lens. This also applies to maximum openness. We believe that the weight balance between body and optics is very good (better than the combination with Nikkor 55-300), especially in combination with the D-7200. We have never observed problems with the autofocus or stabilizer.
Opinion:given that it was mounted on Canon 6D, I had two theatrical experiences with dancers who moved a lot during the musicals, and I must say that, weight aside (always shooting freehand) I was definitely satisfied! Mounted on Canon 30D instead, it did not give me the same satisfactions (but I think it also depends on the different and obvious quality of the camera body). Bought used in an online store at a very good price, overall I am really satisfied!
Cons:At F2.8 unusable for astronomical photography and photography in general, everything improves to F 5.6
Opinion:I have the lens in question for about a year, I tried it on Canon 1300D finding it bad as a construction, at F 2.8 unusable with deformations to the edges and a crazy vignette. I spoke to Mamiya Trading, who told me it's built like this and they can't replace me. Here's the answer: Good morning Mr. Ribaudo Sigma after seeing the images wrote that if there is a bright object in the center of the frame and being the optics is old-fashioned, both things can cause the situation you encountered. Finally Sigma Japan has recognized the manufacturing defect and next week I should receive it replaced, hopefully well.
Cons:Apart from the focus in my humble and very personal opinion I never got excited
Opinion:I've been using it for years. Unlike the other comments I read it is a lens that contrary to other Sigma that I had has never overwhelmed me. On 200 mm he tended to "lose"." In suboptimal light conditions the colors and the definition of the image, unlike other Sigma possessed, did not satisfy me in full. Probably a very personal taste but when there were opportunities to use it "never dragged me". For manual shots it is better to remove the bracket for the stand for a better grip and to save a little weight. After nine years of use I must say it did not pump any impurities and the internal lenses were perfect ; the ghires of zoom and focus had not taken any slack and were as new as new.
