Pros: Not heavy, Sharpness 70-200mm very good, Close focus 0,95 from sensor at 300mm, Good contrast.

Cons: Af noisy, Litlle soft at 300mm, Litlle dark, No OS.

Opinion: I like this. This is my second copy that i have and i really like the long macro. It is sharp if you have steady hands or good tripod. Its cheap (i paid 139€) and easy to carry all day :-) Have taken many thosends of pictures with this lens :) There is many lenses that are much better but you get nice pictures with this one too. It just takes time to learn steady hands and good lights.

Pros: It is found at derisory prices, robust construction, acceptable definition, as far as I understand.

Cons: maximum aperture 4, the macro complicated to set. Sometimes "reflective" autofocus :) My version, marked with the letter D (not DG!), needs bodies equipped with an internal autofocus motor.

Opinion: in fact I would be reviewing an older model marked only by D and not DG. I would be curious to see if anyone knows him and if he knows what the differences are compared to the DG. I use it mainly with a D200 and the exif data identify it as DG, but on the barrel there is written only D and the aesthetics is definitely different from DG of decidedly newer appearance I wanted to replace it with a Nikkor af-s 18-300 3.5-6.3, bought as a handyman optic for my other digital D7200. But I decided to keep it since at 300 with the sigma at the moment I get sharper images. P.S. In fact, rce also confuses the two models: https://www.rcefoto.com/usato/rce-foto-ravenna-via-cesarea-138/prodotto/011DOBNK0000163636/sigma-af-70-300mm-f-4-5-6-dg-apo-macro-2/ in the photo of the ad even missing the D that is present in mine. Dunno!

Pros: Weight, price, versatility

Cons: Sharpness collapse from 230mm onwards

Opinion: It's a bit noisy, not very ready for AF and loses too much in sharpness after 200/230mm. At 300mm it can only be used with strong light at >f11. The stabilizer, for us lucky pentax users, is not necessary. Paid 90 euros used as a new one, it is in my opinion a great purchase for those who take sports/bird/nature photos in a casual way like me and do not want to invest much for this type of optics.

Pros: Firstly, the price: paid new on Amazon less than €140 (Pentax attack) I think I bought well: light and compact, occupies little place in the backpack and the optical yield is more than enough, even if understandably declining (albeit not dramatic) to increase of the focal; Good invoice (no games between the sections of the zoom and the front does not stretch if brought down) and materials (plastics of course), excellent attack that offers the right resistance to the assembly, MAF fast enough and above all Precise, without B/f focus.

Cons: Nothing that is not abundantly compensated by the "pros": As mentioned, over 200 mm The yield falls, though not too blatantly; The MAF in pursuit is definitely not his forte: better not ask him what he can not give! The brightness is what it is but I already knew before buying it.

Opinion: The zoom 70-300 is a lens for me very interesting that unfortunately is missing in the Pentax catalog that's why I bought it on Amazon, especially comforted by the possibility of returning if not satisfied; I must say instead that the article is beyond my most optimistic expectations: the plastic abounds, of course, but it seems of good quality and is particularly pleasant to the touch; The construction is unexceptionable and it doesn't matter if it's not stabilized because the Pentax have the sensor stabilization. Another nice surprise the MAF: fast and precise, albeit not silent, is much more comfortable in one shot; The one in pursuit, especially if quick, better not to ask it even if some hit can put it to sign! There is no lack of macro function (a bit ' cumbersome in reality) but I do not care, preferring in these cases a dedicated goal. The overall optical yield, as mentioned, is more than acceptable up to 200 mm, after... After you have to settle a little, but... Not even that much! I can not express myself with regard to chromatic aberrations because they are corrected in the car, while I have not detected any particular flare phenomena. The lens is supplied with a hood. In conclusion, it is a lens that all in all I would recommend when not available as a proprietary optics or when you do not want to spend much in a perspective that we know that we will do little; In my opinion, it has a very good price/quality ratio and can give more than some satisfaction to those who use it with knowledge of the cause.

Pros: Price, autofocus speed

Cons: Sharpness at maximum focal, unstabilized, shiny effect of plastics ' ' when they grow old ' '

Opinion: Taken used at 60 euros with one year warranty I can only talk about it bene...la thing that most impressed me is the speed of MAF, very fast and quite accurate. of cons for the price you can not pretend miracles, the sharpness from 200mm up starts to fall to the edges until the maximum focal and you have to tighten enough the diaphragm, not being stabilized you can not get down to long focal lengths with the Times , basically if you shoot with good light you pull out good shots, I like photographing motocross and before taking a top end tele I used this for quite a while and I enjoyed it... indeed I kept it because enthusiastic about the speed of Infan Or This little guy
