Pros: Price, Weight, Lens hood

Cons: Autofocus slow and noisy, macro

Opinion: I bought this canvas last year in a new shopping center less than 100 Euros and I used it on the D7100 for about a year. The quality of the lens is very good loses a bit 'after the 200mm but is normal, while the autofocus is very noisy, slow and inaccurate. The macro switch often I was enchanted, I thought it was a problem of mine, but I read that happens often, and it is virtually useless. If your budget is low and if you use it with the tripod recommend it, gave me discreet satisfaction, but without stabilization freehand becomes almost inutilizzabile.rnMantiene a good market because they sold a few days ago at the same price to go to the AF S 70-300mm f / 4.5-5.6 VR Nikon, FABULOUS !!!

Pros: Price. Colors. Robustness

Cons: Because no one knew what I was buying

Opinion: I was really surprised at the image quality that gives this goal. Ok, no stabilization, no af (I use it on a D3200) and tell you that contrasted with Tamron VC of the same focal, looks good at all. I use it for portraits where I consider it very good of course with the right light as they do not like the bright f / 2.8. Great price, quality (it is always a Sigma) superior even to his sibling Nikon and Tamron dated (tried both).

Pros: Economical, reliable

Cons: AF noise, construction with autofocus excursion, not stabilized (?), Sharpness (?)

Opinion: I bought it because it's the cheapest 70-300 on the market, and it's still a Sigma lens. The fact that it is not bright I do not think it is a negative value, in the sense that you know that you buy a f / 4-5.6 so it is useless to complain that it is not like a f / 2.8 .... rnNon is stabilized but it does not give me any problems because I use it in sport and anyway I have a steady hand. rnAutofocus makes an infernal noise, and also does not have a fixed barrel but extends forward rotating, so you can not support it and you have to resort to the ugly all-round lens hood. The autofocus, however, responds quite well although it is not ultrasonic, even if sometimes you lose and start to go back and forth.rnThe macro is not a true macro, stops at 1: 2, but I do not even use it.rnInfinely, in very first shots I did after buying it I was quite disappointed because it seemed to me that it had a very bad sharpness on the long focal lengths; but then it seems to me that this problem has failed, maybe I'm used to it or maybe it's not that bad. In any case I recommend it for anyone who wants a 70-300 medium invoice without spending a lot.

Pros: Focal length, price, material big hood

Cons: Missing stabilizer, sharpness, button from normal to macro

Opinion: It would add a great lens for the money it costs, who does not want to spend too much and the ideal, personally to me to give a lot of satisfaction ... in portraits and sports photos ... It is true that after 200 drops, but then if one wants the top spend 10 times as much and takes a canon L series In my defective find the button that goes from normal to macro and hard to you often feel that from one moment to another break

Pros: Value for money, focal 70-300, macro, solidity

Cons: missing stabilizer

Opinion: I bought this lens on offer at a ridiculous price. rnNon will be the best lens in the world, but for the price paid and the shots that you can achieve, it is nothing male.rnNon is very light, but its weight is average. Good build quality. Good AF.rnLa the brightness is more than satisfactory. rnForse because as a boy I used to shoot without stabilizer, but I find that it is a lens that despite the absence of the OS allows to photograph with little risk of camera shake even without cavalletto.rnSebbene its macro is not 1: 1, still allows get some satisfaction, thanks to the long distance of at least fire from soggetto.rnLo use for a few months and personally I can not be altogether satisfied.
