|1texasgolfer#10380 date: Jul-15-2012|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||min 28-105|
|price paid:||350 usd|
|positive:||Focus ring is very easy to hold and slides to disengage ring. 82mm filters it looks good!|
|negative:||zoom is very tight on one end. The gears are weak and expensive to repair. 82mm filters expensive|
|comment:||I like the extra on the the wide end and I'd like more on the long. I've got a Tamron 24-135 on the way. |
Be alert the gears in this and alot of other Sigma's could be better. I bought mine with stripped gears I knew it when it was bought, but now repaired and going well. I use this lens outside mainly, and if used inside I bump the iso up to 400. You'll use this one alot, many better times better than modern kit lenses.
One funny note a woman looked at my gigantic lens and assumed I was a pro and started asking for advise. lol
Update I just bought a A850, this lens comes to life with FF it's now useable indoors. I'm sure there is better but it'll take more money to top it.
